Just ordered mine! Thanks for the heads up guys.
For people wondering about confirmation emails how did you order?
I ordered through paypal for pick up in-store on saturday so I got a email from paypal but I believe you won't get a email from JL if you are picking up, I think they text you instead when its ready in-store.
Not a 100% sure though
Ordered other stuff from John Lewis to collect in store and always received a email or text
Yep, a lot of misinformed blabbermouths around.
Google EU directive 1999/44/EC which states that "A two-year guarantee applies for the sale of all consumer goods everywhere in the EU. In some countries, this may be more, and some manufacturers also choose to offer a longer warranty period."
