Welcome to HotUKDeals krishan!

If possible, could you share the source of the code?

Its just that for reserve and collect orders, you (try!)to claim your discount instore, so if you want to try to use it there, knowledge of where it came from might be handy!

Deffo works for home delivery - good spot.

Edit update: when entered, the code says 'You At Work Discount: 5%' - not entirely sure what this is.

I'm not sure what the original source is I'm afraid. I just noticed that every month there is a new "You At Work" code, and I tried changing JUL for AUG and it worked on the site.

Second hit for "You at Work" on Google.
http://corporate.youatwork.co.uk/

It looks like it's a subsidiary of the Barclays Group offering information on discounts available to "eligible" employees of companies that participate in the "You at Work" scheme.

So, if you don't work for a company that participates in these incentive schemes, then it might be safer to give it a miss.

You never know, one day you might be asked for "proof" of entitlement. :roll:

SO, not knowing any better (not having read this thread, nor appreciating that voucher codes found on the internet may not be intended for use by the general public :thinking:) I just got back from an hour wasted arguing with a PC World store manager.

The above quote from the PC World website shows that they DO expect people to enter the store to collect their reserved goods and claim a discount - SO why will they always say no when you get there??? The manager did not understand that in all innocence a person could see a route to a discounted price, effectively an advertisement of a price which was then refused in store.

I believe that this is a subtle mispresentation that the sale of goods act outlaws. The fact that we saw an item advertised at a price motivated us to reserve the product, drive to the store and ask for the goods. Only then, when we were psychologically primed to do the deal, do we find that it is more expensive. This has us at a disadvantage and I think is unfair and unlawful. Anyone agree?

Interesting. We were trying to buy a laptop so had to collar an intern to fetch one out. The first fifteen minutes passed gathering all our details. It was only when he got to a certain point in his on-screen system that he couldn't figure out how to get the discount voucher in. That triggered a series of delays as various guys came and went culminating in a half-hour wait for the manager. He was like a brick-wall on the matter.

We really couldn't get OUR heads around it - we always google for coupons and codes and usually they're sponsored by the shop in question and work as you'd expect.

In this case I now appreciate that it may be some kind of staff-only scheme - but that's not mentioned on the PC World website, and the manager didn't seem to know about it either. His attitude was that their "system" had no way of accepting it (true) and "they" hadn't published the voucher code (true) - so far, so good (for the manager) as any random sequence of letters a punter pulls off a blog shouldn't get him money off.

But this code was ACCEPTED by the PC World online checkout - which also gave the option of reserve and collect so what's the punter to think? In our case a 60 mile round trip seemed like it was worth it to have a laptop to play with over the weekend. What a waste of expensive fuel.

Well according to a sales assistant he said the above post is bull as you cannot take to checkout as they are in a cage which they were when i got mine....and yes i got the discount although they never heard of the discount code and there was no where to enter it either so he just deducted the 5% off....but it did take about 20min's to sort it out!.:thumbsup:
