Anyone else get an email from Evans this week saying the BC 10% discount would now only apply to RRP, not existing offers? Same as the recent change at CRC, though didn't see a mention of a minimum spend at Evans...

They've sent me a new code and presume it takes immediate effect. Narked as was about to go for a Gore Shakedry jacket they had on offer. The 10% on top would have made it a "reasonable" price, but not now :roll:

    Yeah, bit rubbish.

    Might be worth trying the old/new codes to see if they work - you've nothing to lose by trying after all.

    I guess you can't blame them, I mean, they did go out of business as a result of not making enough money after all.

    Can't imagine that this plus the new £5 delivery charge is doing them many favours in terms of sales volume though.

    I blame their new owners.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Damn, I'd forgotten about the new standard £4.99 delivery as well. Cant be doing their sales any good at all...
    That Shakedry jacket is looking less and less of a good deal. Shame as seemingly due to rain all next week where i am, and I had planned some days off to get out on the bike :roll:

    Which is lovely but the vast majority of the UK population don't live within 15 minutes of a branch of Evans cycles, and wiggle will deliver for free (and probably cost less in the first place).
