We've done this a few times and it always seems to go over well. Why wouldn't it? You're getting some serious bang for your buck (as the saying goes), and we're using the profits to stock our offices with fancy coffee.
It does leave us horribly short on the word count for this here write up, though. Explaining how a 50% discount works doesn't exactly require your undivided attention.
So instead we'll hit you with this little-known fact: Movie trailers are called "trailers" because they used to be shown at the end of the movies, not before. Eventually common sense prevailed, but the name stuck.
A brand-new exciting collection of Famous Five adventures suitable for children 5 years and older!
Julian, Dick, Anne, George, and Timmy the dog find excitement and adventure wherever they go in Enid Blyton's most popular series.
In addition to the Famous Five novels, Enid Blyton wrote a clutch of short stories based on the characters. These were published in magazines and collected in the Famous Five Short Story Collection. For the first time, the complete and original text of each of these short stories appear in individual volumes, illustrated with brand new colour art by Jamie Littler.
Also included in this brilliant collection, set in the world of Enid Blyton's best-loved series, are two newly-created early readers which follow Julian, Dick, Anne, George and Timmy the dog on some special new adventures - illustrated throughout in gorgeous full-colour by Becka Moor. Each story is broken down into six short chapters with vibrant, full-colour illustrations on every page - perfect for shared reading or for newly confident readers to enjoy independently.

We're so sorry for this! A radical increase in sales and customers means that things are taking longer than normal (including responses to your query). We are doing everything we can to work through this backlog - such as hiring more staff - but this will take some time to take effect. Again, we're so sorry for the wait.
Quite possibly. If you paid via EFT, please allow us a little time to process. If your bank sent us proof of payment, you should receive a confirmation email in the next hour or so.

Why not give it a try today?
Well, because we also have to pay for delivery. And that money needs to come from somewhere.
Shipping costs money and we don't want to go bankrupt.
We have debated the merits of offering free shipping at length but the reality is that – without some magic source of free cash – the only place that money can come from is from our customers.
That leaves us with two options: hide it in the price of the product, or show it. We decided to be transparent and show it. This lets us cut our prices to the bare minimum and show you the best possible savings.
If we had incorporated the shipping cost into the price of an item, you’d pay double whenever you order more than one item but, in reality, the cost of shipping doesn’t necessarily go up.
By the way: the actual shipping charge you pay is a best-effort approximation of what shipping is going to cost us. As a result, ordering a 3kg item to Sandton or Cape Town may work out cheaper than a 75g iPhone cover to Springbok. Don’t blame us; blame the vast expanse that is our beautiful South Africa.
We'd love to offer free shipping. But we can't, because that means turning our company into a loss-making enterprise.
We rarely hold stock. Our partners deliver exactly what we need, after a deal has run. That way we keep our costs down, prices low and everybody (including you) happy.
We're not like other online shops with a fixed catalogue and tons of stock. Instead, most of our products never come back to our website again. That’s how we want it, as it keeps us fresh and unpredictable (win #1).
So, after you (and lots of others) have placed your orders, we go to our suppliers and place a massive, single order. Our suppliers love this, as it keeps things simple and moving along smoothly. Happy suppliers equal low prices (win #2).
Since we don’t hold stock, we can work with a cheaper, medium-sized warehouse, instead of a mega-warehouse (win #3) and we’re saving lots on not needing any processes involved in handling and returning unsold stock, allowing us to offer better deals (win #4).
The practice of not holding stock is one of the core principles behind OneDayOnly’s success. That, and our sparkling personalities of course.
