The order fails once right through checkout if they still have no stock but they send you an email confirmation of failed order with a £10 promo code for use until 14/02/2009

Don't like the idea of risking putting in my bank details in case the order goes through !!

Yep, same here, is the £10 code off any value online order?

Wow lol does work heat added

If the order goes through just ring to cancel ;-)
"We are pleased to confirm that your order has qualified for an additional discount on your next order - £10 off your next order until 14/02/2009" Seems open to any value order.

Did you all put in your card details ?

I havent got £305 in my account anyway, so worth a go

Yep seems to work ok, is the promo code of any value .. is there a minimum spend ?

when i try it, it says can be ordered, anyone else had this?

You need to try for home delivery, it seems

thats what i did. says can be ordered within 28 days

Can you use more than one of these codes per order? Seems like it could be a pretty profitable loophole if so!!!

i get the following message when i try to order

Sorry, we can't check stock at the moment. Please try again later, or we'll confirm stock during the checkout

(Service not available 10pm-2am)

On the very last screen, it takes me to my bank's verification password - eek, don't wanna actually buy it!!!

You don't need to check the stock - just click on the "Home Delivery" radio button further down the page... :thumbsup:

Just click "buy or reserve" then buy for home delivery button, then "continue" at the next page and complete the order.

afraid to try this in case my card gets debited,cant afford to wait for refund

Looks like they may be accepting these orders now

No, I have done this 6 times now and every time you get the same email - out of stock, card not charged, but for your troubles, have a £10 voucher! :w00t:

I do hope you can stack these voucher codes!

confirmation email says
"Unfortunately the following item(s) are now out of stock. This amount has not been charged to your card. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. Please try again in a few days, as we should receive more stock shortly."
but you still get the voucher!:thumbsup:

yeah but when i try it says it can be ordered for delivery within 28 days, anyone else had this

Worked for me. Got a confirmation email saying that it was out of stock and no money had been taken, but it did include the code. Thanks OP Heat & Rep

I've done it once and got the voucher email, can it be only used online, is there a minimum spend ?

dont go mad, or bells will ring, do 1 or 2 times

You have to complete the order, submit card details etc but the confirmation mail says its is out of stock and no money is taken

Banned

my sister got 3 codes like this on a previous glitch last week
when she then used the codes on different orders the order confirmation said the discount had been applied but then the full amount was taken from her card

So you have to actually input your bank password at the end??

Perhaps someone should test the code on a real purchase to confirm...anyone...

Ok I just tested and the code works but will only deduct the £10 off the item you are buying .. you have to pay the delivery charge regardless.
Hope this helps.

worked for me too, can you use more than 1 code for 1 purchase,after a ps3 so a few quid off is an incentive to get it from argos
