20% off selected gift cards at Morrisons (plus free fuel voucher)

55
Found 2nd Mar 2015
Morrisons are offering 20% off selected gift cards for other shops at the moment. The following retailers are included:

New Look
Ticketmaster
Greene king
Hungry Horse
Spa finder Wellness 365
Facebook

Gift card purchases also still give Fuelsaver vouchers (1p per litre off fuel for each £10 of Gift Cards purchased), although the vouchers are awarded at the discounted price, not the voucher face value. So I bought a £25 New Look gift card for £20 and got 2p off per litre of petrol

Running until Mothers Day (15th March)

EDIT: Tesco also offering 20% off a different selection (H&M, iTunes, Prezzo, and others) Click here for that deal - hotukdeals.com/tag/dea…989

Thankyou so much for the heads up.

Any Amazon ones?

Shame 3v aren't included, I've been buying £1100 worth each fortnight (or more dep on fuel prices) (or as many as they have on shelf) for last 12 months or so, getting paid £16.50 (was £55 via 5% amex cashback at start) to do so and getting free fuel to boot. All you need to do is figure out a free way of cashing it back in to your account (or if you have a bet365 account and can still do the 4/1 offer you'll make a load more cash too), but I'll let you figure that one out

Good deal for the ticketmaster ones, helps balance out their rip off booking fees.

Simple. Credit card with at least a £2500ish limit (I chose amex as was 5% cashback for first 3 months)
Buy vouchers, transfer money back to your account. If you need to buy more than two lots a month then pay some on to your credit card otherwise just pay off credit card as normal. You will need to find out when your morrisons restocks them (mines on tuesday morning) then dip down and buy them before someone else does.

Rinse and repeat. To get most from vouchers I take my car, wife sometimes comes in hers (or I get a mate to bring his for free fuel) and then I have 2x 5l cans. Its up to 100l. If you fund matched betting with it and do offers like 4/1/ feature race / dogs offer etc you'll make about £20-25 profit per £300 spent on average based on odds around 5.00-6.00. Easier on saturdays though. Will hills and coral etc do the odd offer you can spend your vouchers on. You'll need to pay using paypal though, can't deposit using visa method. You will probably lose your account eventually, but if you have several wives and pets it helps.

Warning though, if petrol is £1.09/l and you have £1.10 off a litre, their machines can't handle it and you will be charged 1p a litre.

If you can get vouchers from several morrisons and do a lot of miles, and can claim 45p mileage too (I'm a director so I can) you can probably buy, insure and run a brand new car for free.

3v cards have a whole load of other uses too, such as unlimited netflix / nowtv trials, using a 0% cashback credit card as a cheap way of getting a super balance transfer and not having to pay a 3% fee etc.

I should write a book

oO You lost me

When does the 20% off deal expire please?

Ok, for a laugh I looked to see if you really can buy a brand new car, insure it and run it for free, assuming 8000 miles a year (so 12000 miles over 18 months), of which 6000 are business @ 45p a mile.

Let select a cheap but nice car - a top range citroen c1 flair 1.2l. Has touchscreen, air con and a fancy electric roof

http://www.centralukvehicleleasing.co.uk/vehicle/choose_your_lease/64234/citroen/ca/12_vti_flair_3dr.html

18 month lease, total cost £2909.83 over the 18 months

Ok, lets assume 1) we can get 50mpg, and 2) we fill the tank after using 35litres

6000 miles (only counting ones we can claim money back from) at 50mpg = 120 gallons. Total in litres is 545 litres. However, we fill up every 35 litres so thats roughly 16 fillups over the 18 months

Lets assume petrol remains at a constant £1.10 a litre
Ok, thats means we need to buy 16x £1100 worth of vouchers to get £1.10 off a litre and therefore get free petrol.
That makes £17600 worth of vouchers bought.
Using an amex cashback credit card, the first £2000 generates 5% cashback of £100
The remaining £15600 will generate 1.25% which is £195

Ok, so total cashback made over 18 months is £295

Now, with matched betting we have £17600 worth of vouchers. Now lets assume that for every £500 spent, we make £20 profit (on average it should be higher), and we'll also assume your account won't be gubbed, and your wife, dog, cat also have accounts that allow you to get through £17600 )
17600/500 = 35.2, so we'll make at least £704 profit.

Now finally, we can claim 45p per mile for the 6000 miles, which is £2700

Total money in is £2700+£295+£704 = £3699
Cost of Car £2909.83
Insurance £400
Servicing & maintenance / 2 new front tyres £300
Total Spent: £3609.83
Profit over 18 months £189.17

So there we go ladies and gentleman, thanks to morrisons, amex and the world of betting, and assuming you can claim business mileage, you really can buy a brand new car, insure it and fill it with petrol, even if half your mileage is personal, and not only do it for free, but get paid for it*.

* Assuming I can count.

Grrr jaydeeuk1, the last time someone mentioned Morrisons 3V, they sold out for weeks.

No, you're depositing them in bet365 or whereever via paypal, and then cashing them out to your paypal account which is linked to your bank account

The above example was only a joke, you wouldn't want to put £17600 through bet365. I wanted to shoot myself in the face after £1000 and swore to never do it this way again. You might have more patience (paypal like to suspend your account after a few thousand so you have to phone up, say 'hi, its me again' explain what the cards are and wait a few hours for them to unsuspend you.

Bookies can (and will) suspend users that deposit, withdraw etc without playing. It flags up as money laundering...

How do you turn £1000 of hungry horse vouchers into cash to pay off your credit card? Seems very long winded.

Great deal though, these are great as they work with other offers as they're like cash to the restaurant.

I paid for a £2500 holiday with 3V and wanted to go on another holiday just to get over the experience of paying for the previous one.

Its a right ballache typing in those 3v numbers. I've got 10 sat here on my desk from just now but I really CBA to type them in. I've got God knows how many 3v accounts now (you get asked for ID after £1500 or so which involves posting id to Ireland if I remember rightly, so feck that - just make a new one), I must have done £15000 easily since Jan 2014. I wished they sold £50 or even £100 versions like the fee paying cards.

Ticketmaster vouchers are great for festivals

Can use 5 per order on ticketmaster, so £25 off anything over £125.

Is this nationwide as local Morrison's in Nottingham the ticketmaster vouchers are still full price and there is no sign of any signs about discount, asked for 1 to be scanned and was still full price

It should be as a few people over on MSE have confirmed it in various locations, and I checked it out in my local (Chorley) yesterday.

Can anyone else confirm that they have the offer in their local store?

was it advertised in store?

Yes, at my local there were signs on the gift card stands. Although they were only small!

op don't get your comment about fuel save vouchers being awarded are the discount rate.
You are only getting whole pennies regardless and the till rounds down your transaction value to the nearest £10.
eg you buy discounted vouchers for £20 quid you get 2p you buy discounted voucher or full price vouchers between £20-£29 you still only receive 2p

Still can"t see how this is worth it . I have the Amex 5% card but don"t the 3v cards cost £2.95 fee to buy ? If so £500 worth at £2.95 fee x10 = £29.50 in fees ,okay ,you get £25 cashback on Amex and presumably 50p off a litre which in my 45 litre car is £22.50 saving .
It seems an awful lot of hard work to save £17 and i guess the Amex 5% isn"t paid until the end of your first year .

Guess if you haven"t used all your £100/120 cashback allowance from Amex you could bulk buy and keep on 3v to continue getting 5% after month 3.

Yes but if you buy a £20 gift card down to £16 you only get 1p, instead of the 2p you would get if you paid full price, that was my point
