    Hi,

    Was ordering a collection of different plug plants from VM and used their offer code to save myself £6, however it would not accept the offer code, contacting VM who ended up saying the offer had expired several days ago, yet it was still plastered all over the page.

    Looked at T&M and they had the same offer, virtually the same page layout, same plants and prices etc. yet their offer code for the same £6 worked.

    I know they may use the same sub suppliers, but they do look so much alike make you wonder if they really are one and the same ??

          Sadly corporations cant be bothered growing organically nowadays so the directors keep the city of london boys happy by acquiring other companies to keep the illusion of company growth.

          Happy directors=Happy London Boyz=Happy Shareholders = Unhappy Consumers.⊙~⊙

          Think Tesco owning Dobbies garden centres sums it up.
