Tell me about it. To think some people are falling for it as well. Every time i see a thread there are several people all thanking the OP for a seemingly good deal. Little do they know they will be charged down the line the full amount.

Take a look at some off the posts in this thread. The origonal poster was getting thanked, not for the deal he posted, but for smoeone else posting info about these codes. I must admit to ordering from Very, but will only use the code once. Interesting to see what the fallout will be in a few weeks time!

Even an article on here about it. You have to scroll down a bit though!

too many mods spend too much time posting shop direct vouchers and too much affiliate money is made from them

shop direct terms state if the voucher wasnt issued to the customer it wont get honoured, in violation of that the vouchers are posted here anyway
no-one cares the customer gets ripped off.

much as it needs to happen, it wont

so what is your reasoning for banning a reputable company from the site exactly?

im not really seeing much of a case developing here

We dont allow any merchant to spam this site not we promote anyone for the affiliate money. :)

How are the customers getting ripped off? They know that if they haven't been sent the promo code then they use it at their own risk. If any of the shop direct group sites find they weren't supposed to have used it why should they not have the right to ask for it back? It's stated in the terms and conditions of the promo code that it remains the property of the shop direct group at all times afterall.

At the end of the day using these codes is a gamble, the only people that are getting ripped off is the shop direct group, not the customer.

Some people make me laugh..

I have used many codes over about 5/6 years and never had a problem. However if in the future i am charged for one of the codes i use, i cannot complain. As has been stated in this thread you are using at your own risk and the only people getting 'stung' 'ripped off' is shop direct.
