looks like its time to cough up

How many times did you use the codes, out of interest?

Original Poster

several cant remember exactly

time and time again people have used these codes knowing for well they arent allowed and so I guess its pot luck if you get stung but littlewoods are well within their rights to claim back from whoever they want lol...sorry but you should have heeded the many "boring" warnings from the "littlewoods code haters" as we've become known

Not such great deals 6 months down the line are they :-(



i agree its peoples own fault they get greedy, good scam by littlewoods really, they probably love it they get loads of extra orders with the codes, allowing people to use them but they dont lose out cause they can charge the extra whenever they want really.....

scams work really well/better when greed is involved

thats the thing thats annoyes me the most, when people complain after being warned several times... if something is toooo good to be true...it more then likely is...and if its just a little bit dodgy dont dont it several times otherwise you'll get caught lol...I really dont have any sympathy for OP sorry

usefull advice...hmmm let me see, listen to the people when they say these codes arent valid if they havent been sent to you....and well dont be so greedy next time, use the codes once twice tops but several and im sure littlewoods notice! there you go

.....I too have used many discount codes but all different ones on my two littlewood accounts and pay up straight away. Once my latest payment has gone through I suggest that everyone who can and has a nil balance close the accounts down. Dont think they will chase the nil balances once accounts closed not in their interest but may go for the ones that owe still!

The only advice is pay up, if u wasnt entitled to the codes, ie they were not sent to u then its down to u, they are entitled to the money

just offer to repay the money and then hopefully they wont take it any further

they can and will still chase you for the money if you used codes you were not entitled to use:roll:

i think if you using them all the time u will get caught for it theres many people on here who use loads and then complain when caught if you only use 1 or 2 a year you would probably be ok but greed gets the better of some people and they using more than 1 a month unlucky but pay it back and take it as a lesson learnt

advice!!!! pay up and close ya a/c down thats what I am going to do! dont think they will bother to chase people who owe nothing and do not have an active account for the difference!

see you'd think that....but just think if the shoe was on the other foot, would you let some one get away with out paying you the (well I can only estimate) £210 7 X 30 off codes they owe you, especially in this day and age with the big R

.....done a lot of debt collection in my years - maybe they are entitled to collect on the money but once the account has been closed, depending on the balance which in my case would be under £100 (charge back) its not worth them taking it any further with agencies/court cause it costs too much money. Really! But hey thats my advice and based on my past experiences!

Good luck everyone and I think everyone involved has learnt a lesson, I know I have :oops:

Pay up the excess or perhaps they accept the goods back even if used?
I only use a code the once,don't really go in for the codes,like I order about once a year if that.

aAre they saying how much you have to pay?
And did you use more than 1 catalogue? If so, have you been charged back for all of them?

I would probs owe hundreds if they came back for me, been using them for years

Perhaps if you use codes fraudulently it invalidates your legitimate ones... who knows. I'd just cough up if I were you and take it as a lesson learned.
