I have been researching into this deal as last night me and my mum went a bit crazy ordering loads of stuff for barely nothing after seeing the deal on HUKD.
Last year a code meant for only a small target group was sent out and was released on chatrooms such as this one. this code wasfor £25. thousands of people who where not entitled to the code under the t&c of the site that state-
2.3 Promotional codes are codes that enable customers to obtain benefits such as discounts, free delivery and free gifts. These codes are non-transferable so may only be used by the person to whom they are issued and must only be used in accordance with their terms and conditions of use. If you use a promotional code to claim a promotional benefit, you must first check that it was issued to you and that you are eligible to use it. By using it to claim a promotional benefit you will be confirming that:-
(i) you are entitled to use the code;
(ii) you meet all the conditions that apply to its use;
(iii) you agree to the terms set out below.
If, before accepting your order, we find that you are not entitled to use the code or do not meet all the terms and conditions of its use, we may reject your order or alternatively process it without the promotional benefit being applied. If, after accepting your order, we find that you were not entitled to use the code or did not meet all the terms and conditions of its use, we may reverse the benefit that you obtained. If you transacted on a cash basis e.g. by debit or credit card, we may take a further payment, equivalent to the value of the benefit obtained, from the card used. If you transacted on a credit basis, the value of the benefit obtained may be charged to your credit account.

martin from money saving experts managed to make a deal with littlewoods to refund all the people they had charged the £25 to. he however made a deal to not step in if any other mistakes where made by littlewoods and he advises all people not to use littlewood codes unless they are sent to you.http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.html?t=594235
one man however managed to get through the system on his ownhttp://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/7063769.stm
If they went to these extreames to stop people using a £25 voucher code and get their money back, then there is big chance they will do it again considering people have been using this code many times, taking £100s or even £1000 each of littlewoods goods. when they wrote letters to people last year it was 2 months after they had recieved their goods and was too late to send them back, so watch out.
