Got a £10 gift voucher or reciept from the spend over £100 get £10 voucher free deal. Just wondering if anyone has tried to put this towards say a proper gift card?

I went in today to try and use it to buy a £15 gift card, but was refused. Anyone else had this?

Could I say buy something for £15 then take it back & get a gift card?

#16 Free vouchers cannot be redeemed for cash or be returned under the 30-day money back guarantee.

Your basically making the "free voucher" cash which is against the T&C's. The voucher is technically a "money off" voucher.

The refund idea works thou, i had the same problem and got a gift card via a refund

thanks Becksdawe for clarifying the T&C's

think i'll go for the refund option. poss risky but i'll make sure i get somat i want just incase.....

just had a thought tho....!!

instead of adding a fiver to this and this in effect it being used as cash. if i bought £15 at the till, presented the voucher for them to knock off, surely my transaction would then just cost £5? i am in effect buying an item....

I think it has something to do with the expiry dates, gift vouchers which you have bought usually have a longer life than those "given away" so if you were to use it to buy another voucher you would be extending the life of it, which is something they wouldn't let you do. Best best is buy something for £15, then take it back later saying you have lost the receipt, as long as it has not been on sale cheaper in the past they will refund you the £15.00, but be careful as they will only refund the lowest selling price!

if you have the receipt they will refund the purchase price

A couple of times I've bought stuff with vouchers, then returned them, & refunding with vouchers seems to be too much hassle for the staff & they just give cash back.
Can't guarantee it will work but its worked for me.
