What - no Haribo?

I just received a parcel from Wiggle. My lovely new saddle. :D

After rummaging around in the box I could find no Haribo - just a free sachet of "Goodness Shakes".

What is the world coming to when Wiggle stop sending you Haribo?

  • The millions of pounds I seem to give them every few months doesnt get me any free packets of 10p sweets but you get sachets of for goodness shakes?

    Im getting really fecking peed off now.

    Double dip recession, inflation on the up and still no sweets. There will be another election soon enough and then we will see who is laughing then eh, eh?

    I havent seen them lift a finger to help Pakistan either.

    All they ever send me is what I ordered and a bit of bubble-wrap. I never knew I was missing out until now.

    Do you have to be a gold / platinum / iridium customer to get the gummy bears?

    I got some Haribo when I ordered my broken Aksiums back in May.
  • try Superstar Comps, got my first order from them today (only placed yesterday) complete with pack of Haribo. What great service!
  • I think I upset them.

    Previous orders have been accompanied by said Haribos.

    BUT...my last order? No goodies of any description, just the goods as ordered. Maybe the recession is hitting the Wiggle profit margins and they are cutting back.
    There's no such thing as too old.

    2 bags with the last order of two items. I ordered some Dremel cutting discs off Ebay and got a mint imperial in the envelope :D Mind you, I have had plenty of orders from Wiggle sans Haribo this year.
    I've added a signature to prove it is still possible.

    I ordered some sweets from Haribo, and did I get a free Dura Ace groupset? Did I censored ! Not even carbon forks. :evil:

    What did you order broken Askiums for? They can't be much use! :wink:

    Go to Probikekit. I got a TdeF tee-shirt when I bought my Kask K-31 TT helmet through them. :D

  • Are people still shopping at Wiggle?

    Even my LBS can undercut them now.

    LBS doesn't sell ladies saddles or decent ladies clothes :( ( and you don't get free Haribo!)

    I was mortified yesterday to I'd lost my platinum status.

    Only £26 away from it so i feel a small spend coming on the regain my status.

    On the subject though I haven't had harbio in a package for months and have only received one free sachet of FGS ironically in a package of 8 I'd ordered.

    Last week I got a packet of Haribos and a Goodness Shakes recovery dirnk in my order of a new Kask K10 helmet.

    You are well and truly hooked.


    Bet whoever came up with the platinum idea beams when s/he reads this.

    I got a free big manly Sports direct mug when I got a pair of traners last year. Plus I always got haribo from Wiggle. I think I am lucky.

    No Wiggle party candidate sat in my constituency :(
    Were their prospective MPs giving away free Haribo sweets? If so, isn't that outlawed as a bribe?

    That's a bloody point! I just ordered a £50 helmet from Wiggle and didn't get any Haribo, or indeed any substitute pressies.

    i may have to reconsider my bike-related purchase provider if this sort of meanness continues!
