Free The Hut Group returns (Zavvi, The Hut, My Geek Box, Pop in a Box, IWOOT)
Found 7th DecFound 7th Dec
You will need to raise a return request to get a returns authorisation number, but this gives free Royal Mail returns.

I guess so, but I could upload numerous photos of damaged items over the past few months. Not surprisingly, I get plenty of requests to review my Zavvi purchases, but never for any of the damaged items.


Different experiences for different people i suppose but i never have any damage. Got a statue delivered yesterday it was perfect.


Remember the Vita error? They had no problems getting them back free of charge.


Would be good if you could actually return anything to Zavvi, been trying to return something for the last 3 days, back and forward emails which have so far resulted in them giving me a returns label but then saying they couldn't give me a current returns address as they were having some issues. What's that all about?!

Thanks I've used this before 👌👌👌


That would be different because I would of send to a specific person or address. No just a pile of adverts with no addressee


ok, so if you send a parcel or a letter, would you be happy for the postman to decide if its junk? of course not. like I said, the customer is the person sending the item, the recipient is the adressee, the postman is just delivering a service.


Yeah they are. Royal Mail hire my postman who delivers junk mail with no address on it. They get paid to do this its their job.


they are nothing to do with royal mail. Royal mail are simply a courier and postal service. they dont print these. companys print and pay royal mail to deliver them. if the postman refused to deliver them, then that is classed as theft as someone has paid for the item to be delivered and he would lose his job. if you really want them gone, go after the source

Glad you found my post helpful. p.s. someone already has posted the NSPCC letter: (y)


I don't want to take your thunder, but I'd highly encourage you to post this deal again. It's leaps and bounds better than this royal mail letter. You don't HAVE to donate if you're skint, and anything you do donate goes to charity. I know before they even arrive that my girls will be thrilled with these. Thanks for sharing.


I posted the below when this 'deal' was posted back in September by someone else, I hope it helps some people: Unless they've improved things I wouldn't bother wasting a stamp on this. Two years ago it was a really poor, non-personalised response that nearly ruined the magic of Christmas for my two girls. They both wrote their own letters to Royal Santa Mail and got exactly the same generic response and the letter didn't even have their names at the top, just something like 'Dear Child' and was covered with inappropriate Royal Mail branding (see below example). In fact the only thing personalised about the letter was the envelope it came in! (In the terms and conditions they also can't even guarantee they'll be able to respond to every child!) The following year we used the NSPCC letter and it was in a different league. You could choose from 8 different designs and personalise the contents of the letter. Yes it took a bit more effort than the Royal Mail one but resulted in two very happy children. NSPCC Santa letter

Does this work on items sent to Europe ? How do the Chinese sellers get proof of delivery to the UK ?


Hermes just throw your parcels round even when they are clearly marked that they are fragile. Has so many bad experiences with them and sure many others have too. Royal Mail might at least treat stuff better


As a seller on eBay I sent a parcel a couple of weeks ago. Buyer reported it as missing 7 days later. I checked the reference number and it stated no delivery attempted. Asked them to wait until the 10 working days mark and I would file a claim. 11 working days was monday. I sent them a copy of the invoice I received when i purchased the items and an invoice for the personalisation that had been done to the item, along with the eBay item number and the reference number from the proof of posting. I received a letter this morning with a cheque for 10.80, which was the item cost plus time plus postage. I did, however, post a replacement out to the buyer on Monday.


So this is available when buying the postage through ebay?


Some info on 2D barcodes. These are monitored. Royal Mail know how many are in the system and are due to be doorstep scanned that day. And the address they are going to. Everyday the manager of the delivery office gets a report from the day before of how many were scanned for each duty/walk. This is against the postman’s name on that day. If the postman continuously fails to scan 2D items they are spoken to and dealt with. The problem I’ve noticed is the post office. When they scan the code there end they then place the barcode label on the parcel so the postman can’t scan it either smudging the wet ink or creasing it. Royal Mail tracked are scanned as they enter the delivery office. They have to go that day even if the postman forgets one or it gets miss sorted. In our office if the customer isn’t in we don’t put a card through we take them back and a driver will go around about 6pm and attempt a second delivery. 95% get delivered that day. And every office is under pressure to hit 95%. Standard Recorded delivery are not tracked but get a signature on the doorstep. Most of the time no one is in and they get a card pushed through. Special deliveries we guard with our life losing one of these can result in the sack. These can’t even go to a neighbour even if the neighbour offers.

Nope. Never sold anything on ebay and if I sell on fb groups that specialize in what I am selling it's collection only


erm, I think I should know if I have ever sent a letter. And trust me I have NEVER once in my life sent one. I can think of better lies to make up than sending a letter hahaha

Wow, you can't have much faith in any version of reality. Don't ever watch or read the news will you? You'll end up thinking you're in the Truman Show or the Matrix or something.


​I had the same jumping through hoops for a lost item. Sent the claim off for compensation to Royal Mail, in Plymouth I think, and after several weeks no reply. Called was told they hadn't received it and it must have been lost in the post!!!


No I know you made it up because of what you said.


Maybe, but I've tried to expire it but it was then unexpired, go figure, I love all the helpful comments though.


After all this the point is this is not a deal as this is the standard price for next day delivery! :p :p

It is worth underlining that the RNIB Letter from Santa is for Blind and Partially Sighted children as the OP stated. Alternative media (e.g. braille) is provided - quite different to the offer from Royal Mail. I am sure that donations to Sooty would be very welcome to support this amazing offer.


To be fair.... it's not. You have to buy a stamp for each letter. Like I said my comment was just a heads up, but I think you're missing the point. I didn't say it wasn't good value for money, just a not a very good concept that spoilt the magic of Christmas for my daughters somewhat. To not even put their name at the top of the letter when they can manage to do it on the envelope is pretty poor.


Get it now before the strike


To be fair.... it’s free


Just a heads up - the Royal Mail letter was very disappointing last year. Both my girls got exactly the same letter (card) with the same printed text and no personalisation, not even their name on it (except on the envelope!). I complained to their customer service who didn't seem to want to know, hopefully it has improved this year. Regardless, I am going to be trying the NSPCC one this time.

Well timed considering the £1 eBay listing just gone thanks


Yes the internet has indeed increased parcel delivery opportunities yet I rarely see parcel force or royal mail in my area delivering .Its the likes of doing bulk of the work and their market share is increasing day by day .just read above comments ,If you really think your business is increasing then it's YOU who needs educating .Royal mail has monopoly on letters otherwise they would be going out of business.Dont get me started on the RM small van driver ,I doubt any have picked up the highway code since a driving lesson. Unfortunately I need a CPC qualification to get behind the wheel of my vehicle ,shame it's not the same for small vans as well.


​go get educated...i know the business inside out...just look at there profits.speaks for itself.and no they didnt have 90% and 70% years back as they were a letter business mainly..with the rise of internet shopping has come the increase in for the driving.don't tar everyone with the same brush and yes if your data is showing below 85% they RM do question it.......just saying (lol)


Obviously not taking any notice of the data the device shows are they ,but someone at RM must of decided their drivers needed a device to stop them racing around residential areas .Keep telling yourselves the RM parcel service is top class and market share is increasing .Sure they may have 51% share ,5 years ago it was 70% 10 years 90% ,,,get the idea


As a business user of Royal Mail I can honestly say I have never used a worse service and that includes Hermes! They accept no responsibility for loss or damage. They have a signed for service which more often than not is delivered without any network scans or signature. I have around a 2% loss/miss delivery rate. Using parcel2go/parcel monkey you can send up to 25kg on a tracked next day delivery for around £5 so why would anyone pay more for an inferior service

What's the chances of this being extended to large letters at any point? Surely the tech is there now, and they could up the price by say 5p to cover the cost of posties giving them a scan.


Anybody recently used this? Any good or bad experiences to share? Thanks


I signed up this week and sent my first parcel. Seems an elaborate website Dashboard which is great for inputting especially items a business would send out again and again but as far as the tracking facility and gaining proof it leaves alot to be desired. I took the precaution of queuing up at the Post Office to get a Proof of Posting. I will be nice if the Dashboard eventually updates with the info, but I'm not holding my breath! Doubt if I will use Click and Drop again, I'll stick to My Hermes


Yeah, quite uselessly this service isn't updated automatically. It would have been more useful to be able to look at a batch posting from the Dashboard to look for any items not delivered instead of having to manually look up and enter each barcode number into the track and trace website. Pretty useless really.


The only way I've found is to go to Royal Mail Tracking and stick in the code found above the QR Barcode on the printed label. It won't show anything until it is scanned at the destination though. It would be much handier if the dashboard showed it. Remember to get the certificate of posting stamped when you drop the parcel off (needed to make a claim against the Royal Mail).

At Stratford mall they have arranged free postage too


​I put 4 in one envelope a few years ago, with 4 stamps so I wasn't being cheeky and only one child received a reply. Done it every year, sending 4 in total for the last 4 years and only had 4 replies on one occasion. Always feels slightly futile and they come back scattered thru December so I need to hide them til they all come incase one doesn't get a letter. I know it's free so I'm not expecting much but there aren't any guarantees. Think I may do the nspcc this year instead


We did this last year, Let your child write a letter (or a bit of art in our case) Then write the child's name & address on the letter, Pop it in a stamped envelope to the address above & post. It's 'free' in effect as your not paying for the reply letter but are paying the cost of a stamp/envelope. I put 2 in one envelope & both received replies.
