B&Q 15% Off Everything Dicsount Cards now FREE instore

Found 28th Nov 2010Made hot 28th Nov 2010
Was in my local B&Q today and the staff were handing out the 15% off christmas cards that start from 1st of December and give 15% off every transaction with NO minimum spend. There was also a box of them on the counter that you could take as you wish, grabbed 3 myself

I asked a manager about this and asked if it was nationwide, he said because there had so many cards they had to give them all away before the 1st December when the deal started and was forced to give them for free, he said it will be nationwide only if the B&Q store has got too many cards, phone ahead first.

Well that's a bit of a con as they've been advertising it as spend £10 to get a card - so lots of people will have no doubt purposely spent £10 to get one (or bumped up their purchase to that much).

Bit naughty really!

Store specific, some managers will be more desperate than others to get customers through the door.

voted hot purely on the merit of the typo on the tit-le description alone

Will vote hot if i can get one of these tomorrow when i go looking for a few things!

Managed to get one today whilst we were out in B&Q anyway. They gave it to me at the till whilst paying. Voted Hot as we need to buy a new kitchen soon!

Which store did you find this happening in?

We had loads of them left in Cov, you're very unlikely not to get one.
We were only supposed to give them out to customers spending £10+ and I haven't heard anything about them being given away for free, so don't go to your store on the pretence you'll get one for free for definite.

Another poorly conceived promotion ala PCW.

I was in my local B&Q (Sutton, Surrey) earlier today and no sign of them and there were certainly no staff handing them out, sadly....

The store I was in, Swinton, is a smaller store, a megastore they call it, not a warehouse if that helps anyone, maybe the smaller stores were given big batches they need to get rid of quicker as warehouses can breeze thorugh them easier, maybe? no?
