Body Shop Online Shopping Problem!

    I want to buy a few things from the Body Shop and I have a 20% off code that I want to use. At the moment, when you spend over £25 they are giving away free Vit E Hand & Nail moisturiser worth £8.

    This is the bit I am confused about. In my basket I have goods worth £25.50 so I should qualify for the moisturiser but when I use the discount code it brings it down to £20.40. Do I still get the moisturiser??

    The Body Shop have a stupid way of doing things, you don't add the free gift to the basket, it isn't automatically added and it is not shown on your final stage bit before payment, it only shows you after have made payment.

    I know most companies go by the original amount (not including discounts) so I would have thought that I should get the gift but I can't find anything on the Body Shop website to say how they work it out.

    Does any one know the answer?!

    Oooh, just noticed that bit about AFTER ALL DISCOUNTS APPLIED. Does that mean I have to spend at least £25 (including all discounts)? So, if I want the free gift I need to spend another £4 - 5?


    lol yes you will need to actually spend the £25

    also did you know you can buy body shop stuff on amazon
