Sorry if the title is a little confusing, there is not a simple way of displaying this deal

I have set the link to one of the boxes of chocolates which has 20% automatically taken off at checkout.

Get a further 20% off at checkout by using the code: XMASVIP

Delivery is automatically upgraded at checkout, and if you are spending > £35, use the code VCFREESTDEL18 to get free delivery.

Enjoy and Merry Christmas (almost)

Basic maths tells you that 20% off followed by another 20% off does not equal 40%...!

As an example, on Amazon you would get 40% off NOT 36% as people are stating above when combining discounts like this. I literally just bought stuff today on Amazon using a 20% off voucher and an additional 15% subscribe and save discount and can confirm I got 35% discount off the total original price - they didn't discount a percentage after discounting another percentage as that would be BS.

Nor me either! Like it but will happily settle for celebrations or cadburys.
Is the automatic 20% off available on any other boxes? Tried a few others and it looks like that's the only one. (Not a fan of dark chocolate )

Can anyone find other boxes that automatically have 20% off? I've given up after 144 products...

20% + 20% off works out at 36% off in total.
Hot ! I love milk chocolate myself, shame only dark box with such a good discount.
I just got a dark box like this. I got the tasting club for £6.95 with free delivery then cancelled the subscription. I know it's not a Christmas one like this, but its the same chocs.
I used to subscribe to tasting club. But i didnt like chocolates.

So true !
It seems like you can buy this box (plus the other versions) for £25, however you can’t get the discount on top of it. This deal is cheaper for this particular box, but if you’d prefer a different type it’s worth taking a look here:

hotelchocolat.com/uk/…xe+
Thanks a lot OP, hot from me! Rare to see 20% off codes for Hotel Chocolat, and seems to work on almost everything. I actually ordered a bunch of selectors instead of that lovely looking dark box you linked to (which I've had my eyes on for months actually.. drool), code worked on them and it actually works out to be better value than the big pretty boxes, and you get to pick your favourites that way! Although, of course the boxes are nices if you need them as gifts.. But I'm gonna treat myself, nothing beats Hotel Chocolat, so delicious and not too sickly sweet!

Oh really? So if you expect 40% from combining two 20% off codes, what do you expect if you combine two 60% discount codes? The items for free? Maybe even you expect them to pay you!
Master_Yoda17 m ago

You really don't get it...


Oh he gets it.... He really does!


The problem here is that the initial 20% has already been (automatically) taken off the original price. Therefore the next 20% off code only reduces the new amount by 20% and not the original full price.

Put it this way, when certain carpet companies offer 70% off, with and extra 20% off. It.does not mean the carpets are now 90% off their original price. Do the first price reduction and them with what's left you do the next.

You are looking at it incorrectly and with seemingly limited intelligence. Amazon would give you 40% off in that scenario as it would be misleading not to - they're not dumb. If you tell someone you'll give them 20% off and tell them they'll get a further 20% off if they do X, that implies 40% discount. You are incorrectly viewing things as seperate events. This is a single combined promotion - it's not rocket science. It's sneaky and purposely misleading to give 36%.

Sigh. Try doing 100 * 0.8 * 0.8 on a calculator. If you disagree with what it tells you, maybe tell it off for having "seemingly limited intelligence" as you've rather charmingly said to me. Oh dear.

You are using maths without engaging your brain. In this situation, the discounted amount of "20% Off" implies 20% off the original listed price, not 20% off some other number or calculation further down the road. "20% OFF" = "X". Another further "20% OFF" in the same equation / promotion MUST also equal X i.e. 2X = 40%. You cannot have X = X - 4. You are incorrectly equating 16 with 20 in the same promotion and transaction. You are assuming you should be getting 36% because you are effectively misunderstanding the english part of what "20% OFF" actually means - in a court of law, you would be entitled to 40% off not 36% which is why retailers like Amazon give you 40% OFF.

I'd just give up as ashe, some people are just beyond logical reasoning. If they can't understand it even when you have given then several good example there is really no hope for them.
Hot deal but are these chocolates any good? Would you compare them to,
1. Lindt (excellent)
2. Nestle (very good usually)
3. Thorntons (average)
4. Cadburys (crap)

Sofa Sale! 50% off all sofas! £999 now £499!
Voucher code: "Get 50% off when you buy a sofa!"
The sofa is not free. The first is an adjusted price, the second is a promotional discount applied to your basket total. Since you keep referencing Amazon, I'm curious, if there was a lightning deal on an Amazon-sold product reducing an item price by 50% and you had a voucher code reducing purchases from Amazon by 10%, would it be a reduction based on the pre-deal price, or on the post-deal total of your basket?

I'd say better than Lindt myself. Thorntons are dire, way too sickly sweet for me. Same with most of Cadbury's.
Nestle, very good?! All subjective I guess.

Oh I get it... It's a single combined promotion. Therefore 1+1=3 or is it 1+1=1.

If it was two single promotions is would be 1+1=2
