Price Promise Match

Confidence is everything as they say and offering a Price Promise Match is a sure sign that we are absolutely confident in our prices. We just won’t be beaten on Price – it’s a promise! Checkout our Price Promise Page for further details but in a nutshell find a cheaper ‘like for like’ product and we will not only match it but we will happily reward you with a free gift worth up to £50! Music Magpie however, does not offer any Price Promise Match at all.

Sanitisation

Sanitisation

For those of you who are obsessed with cleanliness here is a fun fact - mobiles devices apparently have more germs than a toilet seat (yes seriously!) and we do not want our customers having that thought when they buy our products. You can therefore shop with us and use our products not only knowing that our devices work perfectly but also knowing that they been given a deep cleanse thoroughly sanitising them and getting rid of any lurking germs! This is truly unique to us. Any retailer who carries out this extra step would definitely be shouting about it which we see Music Magpie does not.
