John Lewis – Never Knowingly Undersold!

john lewis

Did you know….

John Lewis have a price promise, so don’t be afraid to use it!  The Penny Fairy has taken the below extract straight from their website to explain all:

‘If the words Never Knowingly Undersold seem a little old-fashioned, that’s because they were written in 1925.  They’ve remained unchanged ever since, and so has their meaning.’

Yes you read that right, since 1925!  How many opportunities have you missed to execute this fabulous promise??  Well you won’t miss the opportunity again now that you know.  Full details are available on a dedicated page on their website, so they are not even trying to hide this promise!

What a great company, putting their customers first.

Well done John Lewis!

Toy Kitchens – Christmas Shopping Countdown!

The simple design fits into any home decor, and the ‘cupboards’ on the bottom are ideal for storage of play food when not in use.

If you are looking for something different, maybe wanting to keep more than one child entertained, why not buy a food truck!  Not only can they pretend to cook, they can also sell and drive!  More like 3-in-1, rather than 2-in-1.

Currently on offer this is selling fast, with reservations being taken for next stock delivery, so you may need to be quick if this is going under your christmas tree.

Equipped with a fridge, freezer and a chalkboard this stylish silver kitchen has it all going on.   Sit back and relax on Boxing Day whilst your little homemakers busy themselves with all the ‘kitchen duties’.

 

George @AsdaGeorge Home Wooden Deluxe Kitchen RRP £40, currently £32 @Asda

It might be the cheapest wooden kitchen The Penny Fairy could find online, but it is certainly doesn’t disappoint.  The simple, neutral colours makes it ideal for boys and girls.

 

There are obviously lots more to find online and in stores, hopefully our small selection above may give you some inspiration when choosing!

Until next time… PFx

This Weeks Comparison: 10 Birds Eye Cod Fish Fingers

We’ve compared five boxes of Birds Eye Fish Fingers Cod x 10 from some of the main supermarket retail chains.  This week’s winner is a draw!

fish fingers

Here are our results:

    • Tesco                    £2.00 (special offer)
    • Waitrose            £2.00 (special offer)
    • Morrisons          £2.00 (special offer)
    • Asda                     £2.50
    • Sainsburys       £2.50

 

All 5 supermarkets compared have a normal retail price of £2.50, however 3 currently have a special offer on.

You may be wondering why Iceland has not been compared as it is a frozen product, online they only sell boxes of 28.  Which in comparison are £4.50.  This equates to 16 per finger, whereas the special offers detailed above for  box of 10 work out at 20p per finger.  So it maybe worth doing your homework and buying a larger box if this is a household favourite!
