Seems good idea with no catches...

Some of Lowest on Web's prices are good but not always.

For instance a Western Digital 40GB hard drive (5400rpm) at LoW is just over £42 - at Scan it's a 7,200rpm version and just under £26.

I'd make a fuss about such a difference, free delivery or not...:-)

In fact for under £40 at Scan you can buy a 160GB Western Digital 7,200rpm 8MB cache hard drive.

Delivery charges are often what put me off - all of a sudden a good deal becomes a not so good deal.

Scan have honoured my registration, and my first free delivery will be arriving on Monday.

Good deal

I'm lucky as one of the offspring works about 20 minutes by road from Scan and either he or one of his colleagues gathers orders up and then collects them all at the same time.

Bailey08787 - "Scan have honoured my registration, and my first free delivery will be arriving on Monday." - I don't suppose it worked out free in the end, did it?

According to an ongoing discussion in another forum (click here), the free delivery system is still being worked out according to Scan staff - from click here (Chris_Scan Posted: Sat Jan 13, 2007 10:49):

"The offer is not live as yet and free carrage is not available at the moment.

Further details will be released as soon as we can."

I've put in a few orders from Scan and got free delivery :-)

Thanks for replying Diodorus Siculus.

At what stage of the purchase process does one have the option to choose free delivery? G

When you log in, make the order and go to the checkout, a promotion code is entered and delivery is listed as free.

Thanks for your replies guys. I can confirm that it does work : ))

I feel a bit silly now, jumping to conclusions without even checking things out! That other forum thread put me right off. G

P.S. I just realised my links were wrong too - I meant click here & click here - on reading it properly it mentions something about getting their CPC forum account to tie in with their Scan account to get the free delivery - why do they have to make things so complicated? Anyway, it's none of our concern.
