Clinton Cards Reviews
Description:Apparently, "Britain's biggest specialist greetings card retailer".
Newest Review: ... inside. Also, I think the extra touches such as the gifts are really nice. Clinton Cards also sell 'me to you' products (the grey bear) which seem to be very popular amongst loved up teenagers and middle aged couples. My brother and his partner like to give these as gifts but I have told my fiance from day one that I find them too expensive and I don't really want somebody spending £75.00 on ... more

Clinton Cards are a large chain of stationers who specialise in selling cards and other accessories for occasions. Out of all the card shops I think they tend to have the most varied and largest selection on offer than you would even find in a large supermarket so you are more likely to find a more personalised card for the person than in other stores. Whether it be a special birthday, wedding, anniversary, birth, death or a passed exam you can get a card for almost anything. This can border on ridiculous at times but it's nice to be able to get a card tailored to the event. The cards are displayed in convenient and easy to find sections depending on what ...

Clintons Cards I've been very efficient this year and with the help of this site have got about 85% of my Christmas shopping. But there was one thing that I needed to get that I had forgot, a card for my boyfriend. (Or as he likes to call it Partner). So today whilst out shopping I thought I would just pop into Clintons to get the card. I kind of knew what kind of card I wanted as I was in there with my boyfriend last week getting all the other special cards. (My family all live broad so I need to act early for them to get it in time) Any way I chose a big special me to you card. You know the ones that are big and expensive and very ...

ON MONDAY 8th NOVEMBER 2010 I PURCHASED A CARD FROM CLINTONS IN FISHERGATE PRESTON WHICH WAS ADVERTISED AT £2.85 WHEN I PAID AT THE TILL I WAS CHARGED £2.99. ON QUERYING THIS I WAS TOLD HEAD OFFICE HAD TOLD THEM THAT MORNING TO INCREASE THEIR PRICES. BY THEN IT WAS 4.00pm IN THE AFTERNOON. I THEN ASKED FOR A REFUND. HOW CAN THEY INCREASE EXISTING STOCK BY 5%. CHRISTMAS IS NOT FAR AWAY AND AT A TIME WHEN WE ARE ALL HAVING TO TIGHTEN OUR BELTS CLINTONS WILL BE MAKING A BIG PROFIT IN ALL THEIR STORES AT CUSTOMERS EXPENCE. IN FUTURE I WILL GO TO THE CARD FACTORY WHERE STAFF ARE MORE HELPFULL AND PRICES ARE MUCH MORE RESONABLE.

MY DAUGHTER BOUGHT A VERY SMALL CAKE FOR £3.99. SHE OPENED IT THE SAME DAY AND IT WAS STALE = ROCK HARD. SHE TOOK IT BACK TO THE SHOP IN BROMLEY AND THEY REFUSED TO CHANGE IT BECAUSE SHE HAD OPENED IT. HOW ELSE WAS SHE TO KNOW IT WAS STALE ? SHE CONTACTED HEAD OFFICE AND THEY AGREED TO REFUND HER AND SEND HER A VOUCHER FOR GOODWILL. WEEKS PASSED, DURING WHICH TIME I 'PHONED HEAD OFFICE AND WAS ASSURED THAT SHE WOULD BE REFUNDED, PLUS THE VOUCHER. I HAVE NOW 'PHONED FOUR TIMES AND WE HAVE HEARD NOTHING FURTHER. THIS IS THE LAST TIME THAT ANY OF MY FAMILY WILL SHOP AT CLINTONS. A VERY COSTLY EVENT FOR CLINTONS FOR THE SAKE OF A FEW POUNDS. THE MONEY IS ... Read the complete review

Everytime I visit this store, I find that im thinking to myself "am i really going to pay £3 for a card?".. Especially if its just for a friends birthday.. but then instead of being grudged to pay that amount for one card I think "What the heck.." I find that clintons IS overpriced, but only sometimes it is worth paying the money for.. Me and my boyfriend count the years that we have been together, and treat them as proper anniversaries eg, buying cards and presents and celebrate with a meal or something. This year, I bought a card from Clintons saying "To My Boyfriend, On Our Anniversary".. vice versa with girlfriend ones... but ... Read the complete review
