Paid extra for Saturday delivery for sale order as knew someone would be home all day, DHL instead tried to deliver today (no-one in) and next redelivery day is 2nd Jan now which is the day we go away for two weeks Evil

That's around the same time I ordered too. Feels like they've been really poor during sales in recent years.

Called DHL anyway, who say Mr P only paid for standard weekday delivery so Saturday not an option, they've managed to fit it in on the 31st after some pleading. And Mr P are refunding postage costs.

No itchy tat finger this year. Was slightly tempted by some ssense bits at 70 off but the lack of larger sizes stopped that. Last year got loads of bargains in Mr P sale

They increased the price of an item I was looking at from £1500 to £2000 then put it on sale at 50% off the inflated price. Can't be arsed spending that sort of money as if i'm in a sports direct store so will shop elsewhere

Caliroots had a discount that was time specific, and have decided to extend it to the end of the year. Doubt Swedish trading standards will be too bothered!

They're all at it with hiking up prices to artificially cut them - wine in supermarkets particularly bad for it.

You really need to be quite on the ball with what things cost, Yoox is also a major offender.. The Visvim varsity jacket hovered between £2000 to £1300 now back to £1900!Evil

My order I placed on Boxing Day arrived mid last week and an order I made on the 30th is due to arrive today. I'm London based if that helps at all…

They were all delayed due to sales apprently. Mine arrived last Friday and was ordered on 28th. I'm Hampshire if that helps. Definitely argue for discount code or refund on delivery.
