    Just orderred and received a pair of kids Aqua Sphere swimming goggles.

    And they include a small bag of sweets.
    Presumably they are for my lad and not me.

    You get them in most orders from Wiggle, not just kiddie stuff.

    I think you lot are making these sweets up.

    I’ve ordered loads of stuff and have never received any sweets.

    I’ve quite a large collection of Wiggle bottle openers now but no sweets.

    I used to get sweetr……but now it always seems to be bottle openers. I can always eat sweets, but I don’t really need 5 bottle openers!

    I got a new chainring from wiggle today with no sweets. They must know i am on a diet 😐

    I have had sweets in the past tho…and bottle openers.

    Sorry but I don’t see why giving away sweets/bottle openers is good marketing.

    It is just giving you something to (hopefully) increase brand loyalty and a very half-assed attempt too.

    Good marketing would be giving you free samples with orders – of something directly relevant to what you have ordered. For example, buy a new chain and get a small tube of lube. Buy a frame and get a free lock.

    Does sideways have a website. A quick google has just brought up tons of videos of sideways bikes.

    his website is still as crap as it was years ago (for a long time it was just an ‘under construction’ page

    besides, he can’t empty your credit card by pointing out shiny stuff in his ‘virtual shop’

    well I have never received a freebie before this.

    I assumed they put it in as I had orederred some kids stuff & just thought
    it was a nice touch.

    You are unlikely ever to get much as a freebie.
    You always get what you pay for

    Yes but are they their own sweets or rowntrees?

    that is the question.

    I love the Wiggle marketing ploys. The bottle opener, the sweets, the website and the loyalty spend thing.

    I wish they were all like that.

    Bought a Giant bike for my 5yr old at Xmas got a FREE proper pedal spanner and half tidy muti tool too…I was very impressed!

    Had the jelly sweets a few times too!

    Bike was really well built too…very little set up needed….and no I don’t have shares/work for them!

    Apparently you can get a free hipflask with a Singletrack mag subscription – now that’s good marketing, so long as I actually get one at some point!
