Anyone else have this issue with two different accounts?

So logged into my iPad today (my normal monthly card device) and saw the usual £99.99 offer for Uhura. I then log into my f2p account on facebook and see the same offer for a different price (£80.12). Had the f2p account for a month now, so not exactly new, both used only in the UK, does facebook players have cheaper options over iOS or android players or am I missing something, both seem to be for the same offer.

I believe this has to do with Apple increasing their price/inflation across the board for purchases, due to the strength of the currency and market.  There’s a more detailed thread around here that does a much better job describing it than I.

Facebook does not seem to have adopted the same practice yet, therefore it would be cheaper to make your purchases via FB.

This is most likely correct. iOS just updated their pricing to take into consideration several recent events, and that meant a rather significant pricing change.

As always, we don’t define foreign exchange rates; We use Apple’s tiered pricing system, and Google’s automatic conversion system for any pricing conversions.

At least for Canada, the prices are similar, off by a dollar last time I checked. Google UK probably hasn’t adjusted their exchange rates recently. Take advantage while you can.
