Wandered over to Aldi, got a hat to replace the Lidl one I lost during a long run last winter, also a bright yellow long-sleeved running top, and a pair of running trousers which fit better than I'd feared. So now I have to admit I've got enough gear for the winter and I've no excuse to search online for more stuff...

Co-Op, McVities Jaffa cakes, buy one get one free! Better than half price?

I would say that it was indeed half price, not better than half price

I noticed the stuff on the poster at Aldi appeared to resemble the stuff I saw in Lidl: probably more so than the stuff actually in Aldi. But odd. Are they the same company, or at least use the same suppliers? Got myself another phone arm-holder - I can go through 3 or 4 of these a year.

Some of it is from the same suppliers, I think.

Did somebody say Jaffa Cakes ?

Wiggle has got 30% off new season Salomon off road footwear untill 14.00 today.

I've just treated myself to a Garmin 310xt for £150 from Handtec. It's "newly overhauled", which apparently means as new but maybe the packaging has been replaced. Even with early next-day delivery it's £30 cheaper than Amazon.

I received yet another email from Wiggle saying they had a sale on today. Not sure if they ever don't have a sale, but worth a look if people haven't seen them already.

found a new website called flubit.com (well, new to me anyway)

you find the product you want online, copy and paste the link into the flubit site and within 2 days they will come back to you with a better offer if they can find one. 

I put an amazon link for garmins 310xt and they came back with a price £30 cheaper than amazon.

Havent purchased yet but worth mentioning to you all.

I tried flubit ... but left when it demanded a login etc. I get enough spam already. Oh well.

28/10/2012 at 15:33

Hi Muttley - I know - so annoying, so I have a special spam email address I put in for such stuff so I dont get the crap in my main mailbox

Only thing is about it, I am not sure I like the idea that I have no idea where it is coming from, as in who the actual seller is. Though I suppose it doesn't really matter.

Im gunna check out Handtec, sounds good. has your 310xt arrived yet? That is the model I am looking to get too.

28/10/2012 at 16:16

Yeah, I have a spam address but I just couldn't be bothered tbh.

The 310xt came the next day from Handtec (I paid for the by-lunchtime delivery service). Arrived exactly when promised. It was "newly overhauled" rather than new but looks as new, no signs of any wear or marks on it anywhere.

Had a bit of a hiccup setting up the Ant+ transfer thingy but seems to be okay at the mo, touch wood.

30/10/2012 at 14:08

I had some trouble with the Ant+ thing te second time I tried to upload as well Muttley, but I think it was just a hiccup as it seems to be fine now.

Changing the subject, Newton Issacs and Terra Momentus are on BOGOF - www.newtonrunning.co.uk/tester.  Got my winter training shoes sorted.

SportPursuit do pop up sales that last around about a week and have various things from decent brands for all different sports including running and cycling. You need to have an account to look at the sales but it's worth signing up for.

I just ordered my Garmin310xt on flubit for £197 (with HRM) which is by far the cheapest I could find (£205 minimum elsewhere) also has free delivery.

It is giving me a delivery estimate of 2 - 20 days though, although I can track the package and I am happy to wait. I have mailed to ask if they can be more specific.

All good so far. Will keep you updated with any other issues/speed of delivery etc

Cant wait to get my Garmin!!!

Sainsburys got sis gels on at 82p and sis bars at 75p. Not sure if all stores but was in dewsbury west yorks today.

I agree about sport pursuit they're great! I mostly go to Decathlon though it's by far the cheapest and generally still good quality.
