PML have a few date changes for promotions currently running in September.
There are some promotions that are extended until the 15th of September (extra 2 days). This takes the relevant promotional period to 2.3 weeks. From a capping perspective PML have been good enough to cap payments on these lines at 3 weeks in total for orders placed within the relevant promotional period.
The promotional lines running for the extra 2 days are below and these changes are highlighted in orange on the promotional form found under promotions.
- Bond Street Classic 20 (NSW,VIC,TAS,WA)

- Bond Street Classic 30 (NAT)
- Choice signature 20 (QLD,SA,NT)
- Choice signature 40 (NAT)

Different story for BAT……
BAT are also extending current promotions for 2 additional days to include 14th & 15th September. Also there are changes to Rothmans 40s & Rothmans 25s rebates from the 16th of September. This update can be found under promotions.
Unlike PML the reply from BAT in regards to the capping for the additional 2 days is as follows:-
“In line with promotions being extended for the 14th & 15th of September, Deferred Promotional caps will be in line with historical data for the respective days with an uplift applied.”
We have asked for this statement to be explained in more detail but as at 3.30 p.m. today no response has been received from BAT. Therefore we cannot confirm how cappings will be applied for these 2 extra days.
In other news Holiday 20s & 40s launch for all states, other than Tasmania, has been delayed until mid-October. We will confirm exact timings in a future update.
Imperial promotions can be found under promotions for the period 14/09/20 – 27/09/20. THIS IS VERSION 2 (V2).
The changes to the original version that was on the website are:-
- Increase in rebate on Parker & Simpson 20s and Riverstone 25g for WC 14th September
- Decrease in rebate on JPS 40s for WC 14th and WC 21st September.
ITA is ceasing manufacture of both Log Cabin 50g Tin tobacco and Dr Pat Irish 50g Tin tobacco.
These products will no longer be available for purchase from approximately October 2020 unless sold out earlier.
Store targets – Due to the complexities with allocations/tracking over the last few months Imperial have opted for simplicity. As such, they will extend the target period from the current 31/08/20 – 13/09/20 to cover the remainder of September, meaning that period will now be from the 31/08/20 – 30/09/20.
In summary, this results in you having 4½ weeks to achieve a 2-week allocation.
New promotions for the period 14th – 27th September on the website has no changes to existing case deals.
Also under promotions is a one page flyer on some deals on Richland niche products.
All price per stick and price board spreadsheets have been updated based on above changes and can also be found under promotions.
