I ain't won a single one.... yet!
#2
apparently the vouchers show up anyways....as though it has automatically scratched them for you...just you dont get the chance to scratch them yourself...It has happened to me and not sure if I believe this lol but thats what someone said...so you arent really missing any chance you had
#3
i havent won any yet - shame, had my eye on a few things at zavvi!
#4
I'm not that bothered....lol... just thought it may answer a few questions as to why people are not getting their go.lol.
#5
I think that your 'go' is as soon as you click through.
I clicked through and didn't 'scratch' ( anything!!) but then thought it wasn't an auspicious time :w00t: so moved on. When I looked later, it said that I had already played.
QED - it's just the click and nothing to do with the scratch.
Needless to say, I've haven't won. I'd be really upset if they were Amazon vouchers.:whistling:

same thing happened with me, the scratch panels were already scratched, i didn't win anything but it was odd.

As i was online i tried my daily dose of the competition however it said i had already played. This was probably like 12.10 or something, Juliet Bravo said it should refresh after 12am so i thought i'd try.

However even now this morning its still saying i have played today, but i haven't so haven't got my daily go :(

Maybe that could be why it's doing it to other people. Just an idea.


happened to me today too..

What's going to be done about this??
#8
Do you mean you're keeping the same page open and refreshing it? I haven't tried that myself. I've been using the link from the main page to play each day and it's been fine.

When you see the message stating you've already played, is the card already scratched?

If the winning page is 'unplayable' or 'unscratched' it should still display any prize you win.
#9
Mine says 'You have already played today, please come back and try again tomorrow!'

I played last night at 00:02ish, and have not played today.

I didn't refresh the page at all tonight.

Clicked the link on the homepage and comes up with that cannot scratch off.

I have been using the link from the main page as well.

When i get the message that I've already played, it isn't 'scratched'. and it is unplayable. It says on the side, that I have no vouchers. At that point I have done nothing except click through.

Nice to know that you're chancing your arm though, Ray !!

I am about to try my luck again.:w00t:

see others are reporting this, so no resolution for this? just tough luck?
#20
seems so, it's happened to me twice in a row now.

I dont keep the same page open days on end, i just load IE, have tried firefox too to see if it was a browser issue but its not, click the link on main page, card isnt scratched off but it says ive already played at the top..

little bit sad, knowing my luck im not going to win anything but it would be nice to actually try...

Oh, have cleared all cookies too, made no difference.
#21

wow congrats!

cant find anything good on zavvi :S

but with a £100 voucher im sure i could lol
#26
Can anyone tell me what sort of vouchers these codes are please :-)

Are they like Gift vouchers which allow you to use more than one on a single purchase or are they like discount vouchers and give money off an item but only one code per order.

Thanks to HDUK i've won two codes and wanted to know if they could be used alongside the current 'ZWALK' discount code.

Thanks.
#27
ive had about 4-5 goes since this has started as every other day like today says the same thing try again tomorrow message I dont no why the mods arent fixing this issue????

I believe they can only be used once.

I did this last night, if you hit the page twice without playing, it will show the notice that you've already played today, even if you didn't scratch the card.

I'm assured that if you have a winning card though, it would still display your prize on the left of the page, even if unscratched.

Any answer on this? I now have THREE vouchers :w00t:
Can I use them all on one order and can I use the ZWALK (£3 off £35) discount?

Thanks.
#33
To answer my own question you can only use one code per order and that includes the ZWALK code. So the £2.50 codes are better spent on orders totaling less than £35.

Shame as I had the potential to get £18 off my order using all 4 :-D
#34
oh fudge muffin! i just got the same problem today! :( no free scratches for me today :(
#35
Does anyone get this if they've clicked a "Go to Deal" link before visiting http://www.hotukdeals.com/birthday for the first time in a day? (this fixed it for me)

Arrgh typical I ask the same question for days and get no answer and then get one right after I order :p

I might call them and see if they can add the other two. Thanks.
