Was the voucher sent to you personally or did you just get it off the internet. (seeing as it was cancelled I already know the answer!) so in short . . . . no, it wasnt for you so you should pay.

From a legal point of view you owe them £25, as you obtained the discount by deception.

I am still waiting for Trading Standards to finally whack Shop Direct on the fingers, to make them understand that they have a duty of care to properly validate vouchers before accepting an order. If not legally, than at least from a moral point of view. It's hardly rocket science to check a customer number against a list of those who are entitled to use a voucher code.

Are you an account holder or did you pay by card?

they always get back to you eventually when you use a code that was not directly sent for you, when i am sent codes i now keep the letter just incase as i did have problem once and i had the letter to prove the code was for me!

They are so cheeky.

Never trust shop direct.

No they don't I used one 3 years ago that wasn't meant for me, and my brothers used one a year so ago, but he didn't do the stupid thing and order something to the value of the voucher or something that basically eliminates the bill, or the other thing of ordering something that is just about to be realised like say £25 off COD:Black OPs.

OP I would argue the toss with them and tell them the code was given to you via email, and you deleted the email because it was no longer needed, and tell them you will take it further. Up to you whether you do.

You don't have to pay them. They'll try all they can to make you but they agreed to supply you the goods at a price 6 months ago, a legally binding contract. If they didn't like it then they had every oppourtunity to cancel at the time. Their problem, simples.

This is Very we are talking about, what you said doesn't apply due to them having specific T&Cs that every customer agrees to when ordering.

They can't inforce them Terms & Conditions no doubt, as they are pretty much breaking the agreement law placed above.

t&c's don't override the law. LW group have never won a case over this I believe and backed out last time.

and this is why Very deals are always voted cold on here. Rubbish isn't it?

my thoughts


1-Some codes are in the wild anyway for all to use - How are you supposed to know which are which?
3-If a code works, based on the above, it should be valid on your account and ok to use.


It's THEIR responsibility to check the code at the time the order is processed.
otherwise I would send back the item

I used a £30 off £60 code that was in a thread on MSE, it was advertised in News of the World for New Credit account customers. No problem as one and only mail order account ever opened.
