IT’S TIME TO SWIPE A SURPRISE
LET’S SEE WHAT YOU’VE WON

Eligible Entrants may participate at IKEA stores in Southampton, Bristol, Cardiff, Warrington, Manchester, Birmingham, Coventry, Belfast, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Gateshead, Leeds, Milton Keynes, Lakeside, Wembley, Nottingham, Reading;

Stores not Participating
Edmonton, Croydon and all Order and Collection Points.

Why the three stores are not participating I was told once by a store Staff at Edmonton was because these are Franchise Stores.

Each time you swipe your IKEA FAMILY card at the till, you’ll get a special barcode printed on your receipt. Tap the number in here and let’s see which lovely surprise you’ve won!

Its simple all you new to this

All you have to do is purchase something and make sure you swipe your Family Card(Free to all). Once you have your receipt there will be a unique number at the bottom.

Take it to the Swipeable/printable screen and login then go to the screen to Swipe A Surprise and if there is a scanner on that Kiosk you can just scan it or simply type it and press the button on screen to see what you have won.

What can you win

PRIZES
11. Every eligible entrant will win a prize. Prizes are randomly selected from one of the following;
11.1 1 of 17 trips to Sweden (including £500 spending money), one prize to be won in each store.
11.2 1 of 17 Swedish cooking classes for four in your own home, one prize to be won in each store.
11.3 1 of 17 spa stays for one night for four adults, one prize to be won in each store.
11.4 1 of 85 IKEA Gift Cards (17x £1000, 17x £750, 17x £500, 17x £150 and 17x £50 available);
11.5 1 of c.130,350 selected IKEA products priced between £0.95 and £50.
11.6 1 of c.2,338 money off vouchers (ranging between £5 and £20);
11.7 1 of c.8,148 Swedish Food Market vouchers (£5 and £10 vouchers available); and
11.8 1 of c.394,456 IKEA Restaurant vouchers (ranging between a free donut and a dinner for four).

Well what do you loose.

1) Nothing if you were going for the sake of purchasing something anyway.

2) Gain 5p if you wanted a Donut anyway as it is 30p.

Only If you purchase a dish brush which cost 25p.

This is because you are guaranteed a prize on every purchase even if it s for 25p.

NOTE ***** You are allowed only one code entry per day.

######
NOTE if you win anything that you will need to go to a main tills for you will get another code. So if you have more than one prize to claim it is best to get them scanned separately. As this will give you one code per prize. Please note if you go to self scan you will need to call for assistance to get the prize authorised, best to go attended cashier if you have more than one prize. Or just Queue up again your choice.

#####

See T&C for all the list.
https://swipe.myikeafamily.com/Home/TermsAndConditions

If you have more than one item to purchase and it is not too much hassle it is best to transact them separately to get different codes. You never know there could be a great prize hiding in it.

Last but not Least GOOD LUCK.

6/3 Just won £20 voucher

31/1 kowalsk won £20...
03/2 wearewyldstallyn won a LED torch(£4)

I haven't been keeping upto date with total cost/winnings but as a estimate not counting the DNuts and HDogs the winnings are

Total won £130 + Loads of HotD's and DNuts Spent so far £30'sh

As and Plus note... I got tired of purchasing too many of the same items I could open a shop. Then I realised that the food which they sell inside the store(not Restaurant, Shop or Bistro) can also be purchased and still get a code. So this is what I did.... this will now not only save space for unwanted goods but also still give a chance to win things.

As per conkered comment who won £500 from £4+ spend on the last draw it can be done. Some one did win a holiday in one of the last draws so worht spending 30-50p for

You sure? They seem to have a page about it (I could be wrong, though)

Thanks for pointing it out. Apologies for doing it....

The top list of participating stores is from their T&C's list so this is confirmed list.

The non participating was me filtering all their stores from the participating stores list. When I was going through it I missed MK and put it as not participating.

If you have lots of things to purchase, make sure all the adults who can get hold of the Family card get it and split the items between them plus if you are already in the store, there is nothing going to stop you to purchase one item per transaction specially if you go to self scan. The staff wont mind.

Good Luck

Thank you! Also, 'you are only allowed one code entry per day' does this mean you can only claim one prize per day? Thanks x

Almost all IEKA stores worldwide are franchised, most by INGKA Holding.

The Edinburgh one's definitely franchised - and it always has had the swipe promotions in the past. I've been lucky to have won a king size quilt cover set, a metal set of kitchen utensils - and many doughnuts!

It's time once again for Ikea to contribute to the obesity issues of the UK.
Cheap shoddy hot dog can now be washed down with a free cheap shoddy donut!
At the same time the can also claim how great they are because they now only do cheap shoddy sugar free drinks. Not overly bothered that the sugar was the only thing that made it bearable before.

Ikea. The physical representation of Hell On Earth. Visited once, never again. Having to go through the whole [not allowed to swear] store just to look at one thing and then have to keep going until the tills and exit? No thanks.

Intriguing. The one in Edinburgh has short cut routes if you want to get to the tills asap.

Yes even Coventry has shortcut exits

Think they all have "short cuts". Thing is, if you choose the wrong short cut, you can end up even further away from the tills oO

Yes that is true one code per day but as I did today I purchased 7 items on different transaction to cover the next 7days so do not need to visit everyday as I can check my surprise online via the link in Get Deal.

sure you can, as stated in thefg Note between ##'s get each prize separately to get code from each prize you won... Note you don't get codes from restaurants or food stores just at the main tills

It's worth doing. I won £500 last year on a purchase of £4.50. The staff were really excited, it obviously doesn't happen often, and I got quite a few hugs. They gave me a gift card with a receipt. The next time I went in I scanned that receipt and won a donut.

''barcode doesn't seem to be valid'' do i get, anyone had this problem??

Hi Hannah,
Few Q's to see what is happening...

1) how are you trying to use the Barcode on the scanning mch... or online.
2) what msg do you get when u scan/enter the code.
3) Did you scan your Family card. The other day I forgot to and now the code is invalid. The family card num should be on the receipt.
4) Are you more than one in the family so are you using the code on the correct acc. I mixed it up once so told me off...
5) Sometimes the scan doesn't work so I hand input it...

failing that take it to Cust serv to sort it out
#31
1) online
2) "This barcode doesn't look valid"
3) Yes i scanned the code on the card and my familycard number is on the receipt
4) no
Thank you for your help

Re No. your reply to 2)

I enter the code incorrectly sometimes and I recheck or delete it all and try again.

Basically it is made of 4 sections all of which you can find on top of the Msg about the Swipe Surprise... It consists of

Date Store POS Transaction
120217 262 16 xxx

in this order

Store POS(Till no.) Transaction(individual to your transaction at that time) Date with 0 in between to compensate for no other digits

so mine from Lakeside will look like this for example

026200160XXX120217

Which gave me Donut by the way....

So if you go to the same till at the same store every time the only number you will need to look out for is the XXX which is what will determine the prise in that store.

Double check it and see if they are all correct.

Otherwise take to Store and see if they can spot anything. I am sure if they cant spot any errors either they might be able to compensate you with some form of voucher.

Thanks for the post OP! Never realised this was on, so today made to purchases on 2 different cards and won the following:
1) Nest of 3 tables £50 (returned and got a credit note, said lost receipt ooops), then returned £50 worth of stuff I'd purchased, then repurchased with the credit note tut tut :)
2) Cutlery set £7.75 (still to collect)

Wow that was luck made in Ikea.....

what did you purchase initially was it something only small...... like 30p worth....


when you repurchased the stuff you wanted did you make individual translations or all in one if you purchased them separately then you have one prize per item that you can recheck per day....
