Hornby Collectors Club 2019

#1

I don't know how many forum members are members of the Hornby Collectors Club? They have reintroduced the 10% discount on everything for Club Members. Membership costs £28. One problem is that if you pre-ordered anything in the 2019 releases back in January, you do not get the discount on these orders. I have just cancelled my pre-orders and re-ordered - a saving of £70.00. If you do this, check that the loco is still available before you cancel your pre-order.

Thanks for the heads up.

According to Collectors Club staff (by phone just now) there is no 10% discount this year. R-

It shows Club discount on the Hornby shop. I have pre-ordered a loco at the reduced price.

For example.

Well done WTD - the 10% has not been available since February 2018 (or shouldn't have been). If you can get it - go for it. R-

I know. Might be an error.

As Roger said, the staff say it’s not available and there is nothing on the website to indicate that it’s back in the package, so it looks very much like a glitch.
I didn’t renew last year because the discount disappeared and my remaining pre-orders wouldn’t cover the cost if I tried to rejoin in the hope that the ‘glitch’ remained in place.

Well I've cancelled all of my earlier pre-orders, and ordered again, all at discounted prices, and I have received the confirmatory emails showing the reduced prices - saved me £70.00 :D

I think it is meant to be there and it does mention it on one of the pages.


In the "Sorry this page" etc. text near the top.
