    Poundworld bargains 11th Jul 15 at 2:33 PM
    Sorry if another thread - couldn't find and couldn't see these posted. My local Poundworld has Ted Baker men's body spray and antiperspirant, oos on Boots www but £4.07, Aussie 3 minute miracle reconstrutor, cheapest is 3 for £10.00, Panete Age Defy Advanced Thickening Treatment, £9.99 in Boots and Samy fat hair dry shampoo, £5.99 for 6ozs in Superdrug, think one I got 5 ozs. HTH

    Official MoneySavingExpert insert Tue 14 Jul: Poundworld told us most of the above items are available in most Poundworld stores throughout the UK, and are all priced at £1, but couldn’t tell us how long for. Be quick if you want to grab one.

    Thanks to derms for sharing this offer.

    Not a branded item but my Poundworld had some microwave cookware similar to Sistema, but a fraction of the price. Not the same quality it has to be said, but at a fifth of the price...

    Similar bowl on Am@zon

    Went back to Argyle Street, Glasgow Poundworld today, there's more Barbie bits, this time accessory packs (eg, bags, shoes, jewellery etc). Here's what I got:

    Mine has cat-eye sunglasses, a cuff bracelet, heeled boots, loveheart bag and pink flat shoes. Not sure what the red semi-circle item is - think it's a hairband!

    From Argyle Street, Glasgow: 2 x Shopkins "embouts a crayons" - "pencil tips" which I assume are erasers, and a pencil.

    Poundworld Crawley branch now selling items over £1.
    I noticed they've been selling items well over £1 marked as managers special....something along those lines.

    Really surprised now as they now have loads of items ranging from well over £1 to £8.50..should they still call themselves Poundworld????

    No buying toiletries challenge - possibly for most of 2011,2012,2013,2014,2015!
    £1 in sealed pot for each UU (2011 135/500) 2012 have UU 130/400 (never realised I had a mini chemist under my bed!!!) 2013 UU 156/350. 2014 UU 197/250 2015 UU 16/100

    This seems to be the national policy - there was a TV series on Poundworld last year - filmed 2015, I think - and there were 'Manager's Specials' of items well over a pound being sold in stores then.
    If the items are still good value I don't have a problem with this. The bulk of items are £1, so the name's not a misnomer.

    The "over £1" stock always seems to cause (what I think is) irrational ire in some people. And Poundworld and -land have been selling more than £1 stock for a good few years now.

    I only have a problem with these items if they're not advertised clearly and/or not separate from their core £1 range - admittedly, it's only happened to me once or twice (where some Poundland assistant has obviously got mixed up or forgot to put it in the appropriate section/put a sign up).

    I even made a thread on Hotukdeals ages ago - Sheba cat food platter packs that were in amongst the £1 pet range - turned out it was £2 and someone had made a mistake. D'oh!

    But it doesn't rile me so much I want to throw the book at them and start a false advertising media campaign (like that guy did in the Poundworld BBC programme Poundshop Wars - well worth a watch if you haven't seen it).

    I was a bit embarrassed for the guy, really, as it's hardly crime of the century - he seemed rather petty and obsessive about something that in the grand scheme of things isn't that important.

    These stores aren't actually doing anything wrong if their stock is well-signposted - nobody makes you buy it, after all!

    As long as the majority of their goods are £1, it's fine by me.

    Edit: One thing that DOES annoy me (a bit, as the phenomenon is well-known now) is when you think you're getting a full-size grocery item, and you're not. Just had one dawn on me yesterday (about Ginsters Twin Packs in Poundland vs their single supermarket equivalent) - http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showpost.php?p=72462032&postcount=6814 (maybe the rest of the planet knows about this one, and I've only just realised!)

    Not sure if Poundworld sells smaller-size grocery items - I know it happens in Poundland with packets of biscuits, etc, and you have to be savvy.

    I noticed this in a rare trip to East Ham last week. I won't be visiting one again.

    ETA: the reason it made me cross was because they were the first rather than last items to be displayed, because there were so many of them and also that they were later interspersed with stock for £1. As opposed to Poundland that used to have a discrete section (although admittedly, this is creeping too).

    It's merchandising used to deceive, IMHO.

    Frankly, general inflation and Brexit-related falling sterling inflation have made it so difficult for buyers to source decent items which can profitably be sold for a pound that I'd rather see the £1 limit breached.

    I've found there to be less and less stuff worth having in all pound stores over the last few months, and I've got so bored with what's on offer that I've more or less given them up.

    There are some bargains, certainly, but a lot of the stuff they sell can be found more cheaply in supermarkets, and quite a lot more isn't worth buying because of the low quality.

    I'd be interested in Twopoundland.........

    If an item is over a pound, who cares? Just don't buy it No-one has a gun to your head making you buy anything and if you are 'deceived' and pick up a £5 item thinking it's a pound, just explain to the cashier you weren't aware it was £5 and to take it off the transaction, problem solved?
