Woolworths can't add up...

  and I think WHSmiths have similar problems...

There are lots of adverts lately for music cd's at places like Woolworths [and Smiths] and they always say "£6.99 when bought as part of our 'buy one, get one half price' deal"...

Except, this does not add up. If you buy two records [oops... I mean Cd's - my age is showing ] then only one of them will be available at the price advertised... meaning that they are using false advertising to get people to spend the money - usually with these things, it is the cheaper one that gets reduced. But. Taking their adverts exactly as they say, you should be able to pick up two advertised albums and get them both at 1/2 price.

Legally, I know I don't have a leg to stand on and they'd say I was deliberately misinterpreting the adverts for my own gain - and they'd be right - but still...
