    My local W. H. Smith is selling the current issue of AP at an'exclusive price of £2.20.

    I assume this is a one-off for this issue only?

    It was the 14th July issue! This was in a WHS store in Northampton this morning, so I don't know if it's just for a particular area, or if it's a local WHS promotion. There was an 'exclusive price' notice on the cover, but unfortunately I didn't check to see if it was a sticker as I didn't need to buy it.

    I'll look more closely if it's still there next time I visit, unless AP can comment.
    :eek:

    What? On a weekend? ;) As Dave mentions AP - and other titles - occasionaly run countrywide and localised price promotions with various retailers. I believe that in this case it was WHS countrywide.

    I bought a copy at Gatwick South Terminal. It only had a 10p discount.

    As Alex1994 mentioned the WHS price promoted copies had a 'special' cover with a printed WHS supplied 'exclusive' roundel and a large red bar showing the price as £2.20 on the left of the cover.

    That said I do not know if WHS has a policy of not stocking such promotions at its airport based outlets. Nor have I heard of any 10p discount so I would assume that it is either a WHS till error or a WHS airport outlet stock/pricing matter.

    I just assumed it was a pricing error. There was no indication that it was less than than the cover price.
