Anyone looking for a Lowepro Slingshot 300?

With my impending holiday/vacation, I was looking to replace my CompuTrekker AW Plus bag with something a bit more manageable with respect to airport security and overhead bins on aircraft - my Slingshot 200 is a bit too small to carry what I need, so I was looking to order a 300 to replace it.

Turns out that the best deal right this minute on a Slingshot 300 is with Currys online; they have them for £59.99 and, if you use the coupon code deliverfree when you go to the checkout, you'll get standard delivery for nowt.

Exclamation Re: Anyone looking for a Lowepro Slingshot 300?

Jellyhead.

Tack on the delivery cost and the cameras2u price becomes £56.94

Also - using the BAGS20 code at Jessops.com results in a price of £55.99; a bit cheaper, but standard delivery with them is £3.95 - so back up to £59.95.

I tried to use Jessops' "Collect@Store" service which - in theory - would have allowed me to pick up the bag at my local shop for the asking price of £55.99. BUT... the darn thing refused to accept my card details; I called jessops.com's technical team and they said that all I could do was phone the local store and ask the manager if he'd match the price... something that I know they can't/won't/don't do with accessories.

What irks me about all of the above is that cameras2u.com is Jessops by another name - if they can sell the Slingshot 300 for £55 online, why the bloody hell does it cost £100 to by the same damn thing over the counter in the local store?? GAAAH!

All in all, the £59.99 as delivered price from Currys.co.uk was the least hassle option. I still get to claim my 20% cashback from Lowepro since it is their promotion, not Jessops'.
