    I have been building up to justify buying the Creative Travelsound speakers for a long time.
    Going on holiday soon and thought why not to pair up with my Aldi special Medion MP3 player. Cheapest I could find is around £38ish.
    Low and behold BT(!!) are selling them at £42.00 (inc P&P!)with a built in MP3 player with smartmedia expansion.

    Sounds like a very good deal to me so I have ordered one! :smoke:

    Well this may turn out to be a self prophecy. Speakers turned up today but are the 'white Ipod' version minus built in MP3 player. :thumbsdow

    I've got on to BT who assure me that the correct unit will be dispatched and they will collect the wrong one from me.

    I think they must have made a mistake there as that is the price I paid for my speakers only version !

    I would say that you should be able to hold them to this price. Looks like you've got yourself a great bargain there mate !

    Well :mad: :censored: me if they haven't sent the wrong item again...this time a Creative Muvo 128 MP3 player :mad:

    They have also now removed the product from the web site....thought it was too good to be true.

    Can anyone advise me on this, I haven't bought too much off the web so how do I stand. I have an original printout of the confirmation order specifically describing the item and value?

    I have spoken to the help line tonight but she is going to seek 'advice' from another office tomorrow........ :thumbsdow

    Offer and Acceptance = legally binding contract. They are obliged to supply the goods described in the confirmation. What response have you had?
