Has anyone ever been stupid enough to buy one of those insulated "boilie bags"? I bought a set of three from Poundstretchers for 2.50. Good quality fabric finish in a nice dark green colour.

I E-mailed Haiths to quizz there prices and find out why the supercatch range of seeds were dearer than the bird food seeds which are basically the same.
Here is there reply........................
Dear Mr. Smith,

Many thanks for your email.

Firstly, I would like to apologies for any confusion caused by our pricing.
Unfortunately, the updating of prices has been slower for the cage bird side
than the fishing side has been on www.haiths.com . This has led to some
confusion or possibly a lack of faith in one or two cases. These price
changes will be up-to-date by the weekend and will reflect more truly the
real price differential.

You will notice that there is a differential in prices and this is mainly
down to the fact that fishing products attract VAT and plain feeding
products do not. For example, tares will be 5.54 for 6kg sold as bird food
and 6.28 for fishing a difference of 13.3% when we should charge 17.5%, so
you can see that we have not passed on the full VAT to our fishing
customers.

I think that you should also consider that one or two products are cheaper
for fishing than they are for bird food before you post any unfair comments.
Consider that 25kg of Red Factor will cost 39.94 through supercatch and
44.00 through cage and aviary. This is because cage and aviary food attract
VAT as does supercatch, but we have purposely lowered the price anglers.

Also, PTX through supercatch will cost 25.00 for 25kg but for cage and
aviary 28.08 again, a saving for anglers.

Also, Prosecto Insectivorous-supercatch 30.16 for 25kg and 35.36 for cage
and aviary.

Egg Biscuit for 25 kg 42.64 through supercatch and 43.70 through cage and
aviary.

SBF Mix for 25 kg through supercatch is 28.80 and 33.20 for cage and aviary.

Nectarblend for 25kg through supercatch is 41.00 and is 42.64 through
supercatch.

Mr. Smith I'm always happy to hear everybody's comments and you can
obviously flex your muscle on any internet site that you wish too but
unfortunately, my hands are tied when it comes to which products do and do
not attract VAT. I have illustrated above that the full VAT has not been
passed on many products, this can only mean that Haith's have absorbed the
cost themselves.

What about posting a little good news for supercatch....

1.How delivery is FREE on orders over 15.00.
2.How most other reputable companies are more expensive when you compare
prices inc. delivery.
3.That our products are considered amongst the best available.

Kind regards,

Simon King

I am astounded that such a lengthy, well written reply like that was forthcoming. Fair play to Mr. King for taking the time to do so.

VAT is always a tricky one. I remember when VAT was changed from 15% to 17.5% and I worked for Argos at the time. The catalogues stated that VAT was included at 15%.

However, the Government put the VAT rate up and it was the shop staff that copped all the flack. The politicians got off scott free, whilst companies like Argos were getting accused of 'ripping the customers off'. Fact of the matter is, companies don't get to keep the VAT for very long and spend a bloody fortune administering it
:(

Tight lines,

Elton
