If you buy multiple cards at the same time, make sure the 'assistant' scans each one through, rather than scanning one of the cards more than once.

I bought a few and the special needs worker Morrisons had on that day chose to save a microsecond by scanning the same card multiple times, which I learnt when I got home as only one of the cards was useable.

When I went back to the store the manager basically called me a liar and that I was trying to rip them off.

Nice.

I've since made it my hobby to repeat this true story to anyone who will listen, I wonder if it's cost them the price of the card they stole from me yet.

That is pretty bad - surely though they could put the card through again and see that it activated?
#3
Good deal,may invest for my iPad

It's not nationwide as Morrisons is only in England, Scotland and Wales.
#5
When from? Do you need a coupon or is it advertised in store

For the first time ever the cards have activated by time I got home from the store. Normally when you get them from Morrisons you have to wait hours for them to activate, when other stores manage to activate them instantly.

Any time I have bought an iTunes card, including from Morrisons, my receipt has included the number of each activated card. I am a bit surprised that the till allowed them to charge you multiple times for the same card or that the mistake was not obvious to the manager from the receipt.

Morrisons are a pain with Itunes. The staff I've dealt with don't know what to do. Sometimes they have to swipe the strip and sometimes scan the barcode only

Bought two yesterday at Clintons for my new iPad. Hot deal.

I think their till system doesn't help. When I worked at Sainsburys it wasn't possible to charge someone for a gift card without activating it, the till just wouldn't let you.

This always happens to me - you have to be very careful with Morrisons.
On three occasions now, I've either been given voided cards, and/or incorrectly unscanned cards.

On the third occasion, when I noticed the cashier was struggling, we had to get the store supervisor over - and eventually I walked out with the four cards I actually wanted. They had however accidentally activated 8 by then out of a growing pile of about 15; which the assistant kept trying to scan.

We did cross reference the till receipts against the cards. We had to as it was no longer clear out of the more than 15 scattered cards, which 8 were activate, and which of those 4 were on my very complicated till receipt. They had had to void several payments/receipts because the total at one point was twice what I should have paid.

...The cashier wasn't popular!
All I had done originally was take 4 £15 cards I wanted to purchase.

It's not the cashiers fault, there must be a clear lack of communication on how to activate these cards properly, especially when they are on offer :/

The problem I had seemed to stem from not scanning the same card multiple times, but scanning subsequent cards in very quick succession.

Finally, when I did get home - of course none of the cards worked.
But it can take a full day for cards from Morrisons to activate!

Hopefully, my local Morrisons is now better prepared.
I'll try my luck this afternoon :)

Morrisons are one of the few retailers who are actively supporting (and employing) members of their local communities who are described as having "special needs". The impact this has on their lives (financial, self-esteem etc) is probably immeasurable.

Can't they at least keep them off the tills?

You can get this same deal at Clinton cards - the in-store advertising does say "Save £5 with a purchase of £5" but they will cash up with the £5 discount regardless of any other purchase.

I am sure they could keep "them" off the tills. That said a till is probably not much more difficult to operate than your average pc. And there are plenty of "them" able to use pc's, evidently ;)

Ends tomorrow so best get a wriggle on
#25
What paper was it in?
#26
Don't know about that, but they had clear pricing on gift vouchers area advertising the offer in store, and that it ended tomorrow. and that max of 6 ( might go back and get more tomorrow though )
#27
Picked one up fro the co-operative today (Connah's Quay). Offer ends tomorrow (the 3rd).
Baffles staff didn't even know about the discount.
It scans as £15 and then they have to scan a separate voucher to get the £5 reduction to go through.
Thankfully a random staff member had spotted the vouchers sat in the cash office.
I think I was the one and only person who had got one of these for £10 in the store.
#28
Will currys price match?
#29
£10 for a £15 itunes card in Boots but you have to buy a £20 Boots gift card, ends today (some sort of Mothers Day offer)

No having a reciept didn't make any difference, as the manager just said that I could have easily just taken the card off the rack in the store there and then, and be trying to get them to activate it.

He never paid any interest to the fact that we had a reciept, or to the fact that we spent £100+ every week in the store.

That is we did, we now shop somewhere that has decent customer service.

As for employing people with Special Needs, i'm all for it having family with Autism, however I would not want a company putting them into positions that they are not comfortable with and unable to do their jobs to at least an average standard.

Morrisons along with many other companies who use employing people with disabilities as a nice PR bonus get very nice handouts for doing so - which in turn come from the Tax Payers pockets - so think on when your reading about the good samaritan act.
