    Found that someone has changed the slogan on dixons website to "The last place you want to go" guessing they didn't like them.

    Erm, as stupid as it sounds, I believe that's their official slogan. I'm sure I've seen it on a poster or billboard somewhere.

    That poster is around on the London Underground, gave me a very good chuckle to myself while waiting for a tube :hehe:

    Not exactly a great slogan... but I can see what they are trying to do. I think :confused:

    the funny thing is, by drawing attention to the fact that their website is cheaper than selfridges/JL/wherever, and making you think 'i'll get it on the internet', consumers are more than likely going to discover that dixons is actually one of the most expensive eTailers out there :lol:

    "the last place you want to go" as in you'll not use another site ever again afterwards. I think.

    Funny you say that - I went into Currys and was after a new fridge freezer and washer/dryer. I noted the prices and specs down and out of curiosity checked the dixons site where the same items could be had for a grand total of £70 less, with free delivery! I couldn't find them cheaper anywhere else, either.

    I also bought a brand new Nikon 55-200 DX lens from dixons for £99.99! Bloomin' bargain!
