"To celebrate the re-opening of the railway line linking Devon and Cornwall with the rest of Great Britain we are giving you 10% off CrossCountry Advance tickets for train journeys to and from stations in Devon and Cornwall travelling up to 30 June 2014. "

From the T&Cs of the offer:
The 10% discount is available for CrossCountry Advance tickets purchased:
- online via www.crosscountrytrains.co.uk; or
- through the CrossCountry 'Train tickets' application; or
- through the CrossCounty Call Centre telephone number 0844 8110124

[See my other HUKDs for 10% off Virgin Advances - but without any railcard discounts - for Virgin Money customers.]

FYI: Can of course buy CrossCountry Advance train tickets via many other websites - such as RedSpottedHanky (also with £back via Quidco/TCB etc) but you wouldn't get the 10% off - though at RedSpottedHanky you can double Tesco Clubcard points value (ie £5 Tesco points becomes £10 eVoucher on RSH to spend on train travel).

Tip: I have found that some CrossCountry Advance journeys CAN be cheaper splitting, perhaps multiple times, eg from Exeter to Birmingham split via Bristol & Cheltenham - though watch out for advance seat assignment complexities - and be sure to reserve the same train!

About a month ago I got an email from CrossCountry with a code and a personal pin for 25% off tickets to Devon & Cornwall to be used before the same date of the 30th June 2014. I HAVE taken advantage and booked tickets as I couldn't drive down to South Devon from Northumberland any cheaper than the discounted tickets. You still have to watch which stations you travel from and to, as the price can differ dramatically. This 10% discount might be for new customers ?

Nope - the T&Cs are clear it's for ALL their Advance tickets going to/from Devon/Cornwall stations bought for travel by 30/6.

HOWEVER your msg prompted me to click through and check and found that the link I'd provided although it told you about the promo didn't actually seem to have taken the 10% off!

If following the original link does NOT show "South West Promotion 10% off" under the Advance fares (which appear when you 'View all single tickets', then try this direct link
http://www.crosscountrytrains.co.uk/special-offers/treats-and-discounts/devon-and-cornwall-travel-discount

The page also lists the Devon/Cornwall stations it applies to.
eg an EXD to BHM fare following the 'Get Deal' link initially showed as £33.80 down, but following direct link was down at £30.40 with the 10% saving - so watch out you really are being shown the 10% off rate with "South West Promotion 10% off "
(This MIGHT be because of HUKD cookies/link behind the scenes in the 'Get Deal'.)

The page also talks of the SW10 promo code for their Smartphone 'Train Tickets' app.
