BTW, has anyone ordered this online yet, as I tried, and had problems at the checkout phase. :?

Bah, I bought them individually yesterday and no discount was taken off (I never saw the double pack when I clicked through on the link from Lew's blog), I've emailed them about getting my 3 quid back, or just cancelling the order and redoing it.

I wasn't aware of any double pack when I wrote my blog post. Sorry about that. I've updated it now.

That's OK, not your fault Lew!

I can only hope DCT do the honourable thing and refund me the difference or let me cancel and reorder.

Pah! Who cares what DCT said about last year's Dandy Summer Special? I'm just glad that it's back this year. I see that they are using the 80s logo this time.

Has anyone seen them in the shops yet? Every WH Smith I've been in still has copies of last year's Dandy Summer Special. If they're waiting until their computerised stocking system tells them to replace it with the new one we're in for a long wait.

Hull Prospect Centre WHSmith now has the Beano Summer Special in stock, along with a Jacqueline Wilson one. But not the Dandy, for some reason.
