    Great buy, golfy! Your little boy will looove it!!! I bought my little girl a scooter too from DD It was during a promo over a year back (when she was 6 months old??) hahaha Anyway, she's been on it since 18 months, supervised of course She LOVES it! When I have other kids over (playgroup).. the scooter is the centre of attention! Everyone wants their turn! Some of them even fought over it..with tears.. Doh! Maybe I should buy another.. haha I got a 'motorised' vehicle from Catch of the Day. It's junk! Didn't work from the 1st day.. it was Broken! However, since I only paid 9.95 + post.. I couldn't be bothered returning it so I let her use it in the house like a normal manual vehicle..she seems happy. DD > CoTD any day :p

    Saw that as well and I immediately went online looking for those Armani shirts with the product red logo on it. Can't find it anyway!!!! Dell, Converse and Apple are amongst some of the other companies supporting the movement. Are there any special DD sales on at the moment? I'm looking to buy some parfum but there are no vouchers or specials about!
  • lilpretzel
    Will keep a look out for you kingyubbo, did you have a perfume in mind? :)

    The GAP (product) Red t-shirt would be coooler IMHO :cool:
    Are there any special DD sales on at the moment?
    Nope - but maybe use a DD product price against the OO.com's 120% Price Smash policy ... then use one of the OO.com $5 discount codes!

    Wally: How does that pricesmash thing work? Are they reasonable with the policy or do I have to go through alot to get it?
    Following the procedure outlined in lilP's post above -I found them to be very responsive and obliging - I suppose the only thing to lookout for is - if the competitor has exorbitant postage costs (which they use to make up the difference)

    don't gap use cheap labour or something?
  • Wally
    Depends on your definition, I suppose, some would say Australia uses women as cheap labour http://www.actu.asn.au/Media/Mediareleases/EqualPayDay2008Australianwomenstilltreatedascheaplabour.aspx :confused: Think most of those American multiglomerates (eg.Nike etc) have cleaned up their Activities considerably nowadays
  • nod
    Pretty shocking statistics but not really that surprising. It is the men that set the wages and are in control of the power positions. Until that changes then the wages will stay the same ... not that this is completely off topic :D female or male ... you have equal opportunity to get your hands on the iPod shuffle ;)
