    Well it's a bit of a story but here goes!!

    I originally saw the offer of normal pads for £9.99 (as you stated in your thread) in the manchester store, went back the next day and they were all gone, much to my disappointment! So i was in Stockport the other day and i thought i'd check in there and sure enough they had purple pads for £9.99 but i actually wanted black! So i asked the assistant to have a look in the back to see if she had black ones! So she comes back with 2 boxes and says, "Yes we have black and we have these grey ones" So i had a look at the box and sure enough it was a wavebird, she scanned it and it came up £9.99 so i bought it and hurried out of the shop without thinking to ask how many she had, so the next day i went back and asked for another and they had one! So i got 2 wavebird pads for £20 when they retail at £35. So go back and ask if the assistant can bring out all the pads they have in the stockroom and you might find a wavebird or 2 !!

    Good luck and happy hunting!

    P.s - Wavebirds are the way forward!! ;)

    I tried 3 whsmiths over last weekend/early this week and all had standard controllers priced at £19.99 and no wavebirds in stock (tried harrogate, white rose leeds and monks cross york).

    So good luck to you all but it certainly wouldn't appear to be a nationwide whsmith cockup (unfortunately).

    I must have just been lucky then.....erm....twice in a row! I think i'd feel a bit stupid if i went to ask again, although for £9.99. I don't really need another pad though, i might take a look when i get a day off.
