Beware the Ides of March – help us try to break our website

The Ides of March have just been and gone (officially, it happens on the 15th March). So I thought I’d do a week of special offers, which hopefully helps everyone – ourselves, and our customers.

Our last email newsletter had an offer so good, it broke our website. So we have made significant  improvements to improve speed and reduce timeouts. We have also made the whole site, not just the checkout as previously was the case, HTTPS to improve security.

Now we need your help to test it (and yes, being honest, we want to persuade you to buy some stuff !).  I’m hoping we can get enough traffic to see whether the improvements hold up under load. So we are doing a week of special offers. With the Ides of March having just happened, we’re using Roman-themed promo codes.

The first is the code CATO. The offer which broke the website was an extra 30% off our remaining Citadel paints. We’ve gone a bit better this time – this promo code gets you 40% off Citadel Paints !

To see the rest of the week’s offers, visit our Facebook page (or even better, LIKE it if you haven’t already) where I’ll be posting each day’s offer late the previous evening. Each offer is only open for a single day, so you’ll have to get in quick !

For those of you wondering, Wikipaedia has a nice concise article on the Ides of March –
