Title: OS maps at 30-40% discount
Post by: Stottie on April 24, 2012, 08:58:52 am
I just bought OS Landranger Maps for £4.54 each from Above and Beyond (http://www.aboveandbeyond.co.uk), postage paid:

www.aboveandbeyond.co.uk (http://www.aboveandbeyond.co.uk)

The OS price is higher, and the walk-up price in a bookshop or visitor centre is around £7.

I have no connection with Above and Beyond, other than as a customer.

That's a really useful link, Stottie.  It isn't just Landrangers, they stock Explorers as well, cover price £7.99 but also at 30% discount, and they guarantee that they supply the latest edition, which is seriously helpful.

Update July 2012: even better, this supplier now offers 35% discount here (http://www.aboveandbeyond.co.uk/os-explorer-maps.aspx?f1=os%20maps), and all orders are postfree if you are happy with 2nd class letter post. Not sure if the increased discount is temporary or permanent, but a really good deal, at least for now.

Even better news: at least until midnight on 29 January, Above and Beyond are offering an extra 10% discount with discount code EXTRA10 so you get 40% off the maps, still postfree as long as you accept 2nd class. Their customer service is great, too, and it's good to see somebody providing a real alternative to using Amazon for those of us who are snowed in and/or live far from a map shop.
