    Not used them myself nor would I, all sounds a bit suss to me.
    1. the prices are way to low to be quality bedding. If its too good to be true then it probably is!
    2. why are they removing the labels? which begs the question are they genuine products!

    You would think the Boston Company's offers were 'too good to be true'. However, due to the extreme cheapness of the last offer coupled with the extra discount secured by the MMF website I gave the last one a go. What had I to lose at that price? I ordered two feather pillows and a double duvet delivered for £20 and they were, indeed, of the highest quality. I was extremely impressed and have just ordered another double duvet on the latest offer code.

    How do I know that the feathers and down used is not plucked from live birds? This seems to be common practice and I don't think I could sleep easy under that cruelty. Only two well known brands ensure that products used are by products of food preparation (i.e. Animals already slaughtered). Are you the third?

    We have an ethical policy that governs its trading relationships with suppliers.


    All duck and goose feather and down used in Fogarty product is produced as a by-product of the food industry. Fogarty does not buy direct from farms or abattoirs but only from approved feather-processing suppliers where its purchasing conditions prohibit the supply of live plucked material.


    The company’s main sources of feather and down are from Asia where live plucking is not generally practised and birds are killed before processing. In Eastern Europe the practice of live plucking is more commonplace, however many farms are subject to TUV certification scheme which covers best practice for animal husbandry. Although Fogarty uses a small quantity of European down such raw materials are also obtained via its suppliers in Asia and are subject to its normal trading conditions. All Fogarty feather and down suppliers in Asia are also subject to routine ethical audits and ISO 9001 quality accreditation.

    It's FOGARTY bedding!!

    They've had 3000 orders this morning and it took 3 attempts to place the order, so busy are they. Good old MSE! Thank you.
    I don't think it's suss. Fogarty is a fabulous make.

    I have had issues with a previous order. The codes worked fine and I ordered a 13.5 Tog Duvet and a pair of pillows as a set.


    The duvet turned up on its own, there was no sign of the pillows or any mention of them on the paperwork. Worse than this was that the duvet was very thin and did not even seem to be 10.0 Tog (albeit I am not a duvet expert, just have 35 years of experience in using them). After numerous emails it was agreed that they would send out 'enhanced' pillows due to the shortfall and packaging to allow me to send the duvet back for them to check the rating of it.


    The pillows arrived and whilst not rubbish, I am glad I did not get the lower quality item. I also received a freepost envelope to send back the duvet.


    I sent the duvet back two weeks before Xmas using the envelope provided and Boston are now claiming 'the item never arrived' back with them which is suspicious to me considering I had queried what they had sent me in the first place. Their response is that I should have obtained proof of postage even though the item was being sent freepost and perhaps they are correct.


    However considering the time and emails and unrequired journey I had to make to post the item back to them I wish I had never read the MSE email which mentioned this offer. I would suggest all readers should act with caution when dealing with this company.

    A 10.00 tog duvet will be very thin, thats a spring/autumn tog perfect for a bedroom with heating on.

    Absolutely correct, how else can you prove you posted it unless you obtained proof of posting which should be obtained when returning any item

    No worth the bother
    I bought these apparently luxury pillows. They were cheap yes but I only got them as they were recommended by MSE.

    They are really rubbish...complete waste of money and would unfortunately not recommend these .

    Looked to be a great offer, but their geography is very poor!
    Checked with excluded areas for delivery, none of which applied to where I live - however, once order was being placed, it informed me that they don't deliver to 'Highlands & Islands'.
    I live in Aberdeen, which is NOT in the Highlands and Islands.
    Also, Post Office delivers to our door, six days a week, so wonder what this company's problem is?

    It was supposed to be a 13.5 Tog, not less than 10.....

    Christmas crowds in post office, delivery box for parcels, pre paid postage envelope...was there really an option?

    If they had not mucked the order up in the first place I may have accepted a poor item and been done with it....now I have paid over the odds for some pretty poor pillows.

    Just saying to people be wary.

    Just received my king size, wool, mattress cover and duvet. The mattress cover is a fogarty and the duvet is M&S (marker pen used to erase names on both labels but could read them) Taken out of packaging and given a good shake and all looks to be very promising. Will put on bed tomorrow.
    If you think you are too small to make a difference, try getting in bed with a mosquito!

    Not a good deal
    Just bought a 'super kingsize supersoft mattress protector' using your code, total £19.87. Really disappointed when it arrived with a 'Fogarty' label on. Your website claims that Boston supply 'posh bedding' to upmarket stores and that savings of up to 70% can be made. However I don't consider Fogarty to be an upmarket brand as it's sold in Debenhams, Dunelm and Asda. The protector feels like it's made from cheap material and is flimsy and scratchy. Today I saw the exact same product on the shelves in Dunelm with 20% off for just £17.99. Therefore I am £2 out of pocket by using your code. I would have been better off going to Dunelm. Feel like I've been totally misled. People, don't bother buying from Boston. Complete waste of money.

    Duvet delivered today to an Aberdeen address. The address was accepted by the Boston website with no issues.
    I had expected a duvet with a microfibre cover and was pleasantly surprised that it had a polycotton cover. Interestingly, in light of comments in this thread about other retailers labels on their products, the duvet I received had a Boston label attached.
