TV & Radio Ad's - cannot bring themselves to say the word "POUNDS"

I've made a resolution. NEVER, EVER to buy anything from a retailer whose advert describes a price as "two-nine-nine" (instead of Two Hundred and ninety-nine POUNDS).

Invariably it appears to be same people who offer FANTASTIC OFFERS, like (this was COMET - in Jan 08) a product for £120 less than it was pre-sale (now 139, was 259).

Just how much blasted profit were they making pre-sale if they can AFFORD to reduce that profit by £120?

Unbelievable.
