Linkup Hamilton Price Adjustments

Due to COVID-19 there have been a larger amount of price adjustments than have been in previous years from suppliers. We want to provide complete transparency around this so we have decided to launch this page dedicated to supplying information around these adjustments.

Price adjustment letters are sent monthly with our statements, but we recommend checking back to this page frequently for updated information, especially if you haven't received a statement from us for a while.

N.B. Percentages noted below are the (generalised) percentages from the supplier. Some product pricing after the adjustments may not reflect this percentage exactly due to differences from the supplier or previously missed price adjustments.
