Sunshine.co.uk - Price Beat Guarantee 
We aim to beat any genuine in stock advertised price for a Weber BBQ. Exclusions include clearance prices, second hand goods, an advertised price for product which is out of stock and unverified prices which are not visible on a website. Sunshine determines a product as 'in stock' when delivery can be fulfilled on a next working day service. The Sunshine price beat guarantee is at the complete discretion of Sunshine and may be withdrawn or amended at any time. Under no circumstances will Sunshine match a price for goods where the sale price results in a financial loss for Sunshine - simply stated we will not sell goods below cost.
