So we're supposed to rip-off a charity to get clothing that shows we support good causes?

Rip off? Theyre still going to be making a profit. Its a promotion! Why do you think for-profit organisations do it?

But isn't the whole point of buying something from help for heroes to give money to charity? Why would you want to pay less when the whole reason is to donate in the first instance? I find this very bizzare. If you want to use the code, its there. But its a bit weird to want to get a discount on donating? Its not a for-profit organisation and many 'for-profit' organisations run promotions as loss-leaders. Charities aren't making 'profit', the excess money they receive is used to fund their work or as a surplus for future projects. Using a discount code is reducing their ability to do this.

I tend to agree, but it does rather fly in the face of what displaying the brand and supporting the cause is supposed to be about...

So if their clothes were ten times the price you'd just as likely buy them? If something was half price you'd send them the full price?

Ultimately the total price has to be a factor and their clothes are already towards the top end scale of promotional branded goods. As has been said above, if you disagree with the idea, don't use the code! However, HfH Trading Ltd is a business and part of a business is to attract new customers and grow sales. Promotional activity is all part of that.

Postage and packaging most of the time is a myth, its already included in the profit from the sale of the item, that's why so many places do codes for free postage and packaging. The bump in sales due to the code more then covers this.

I suppose some people will just give money as a donation, others will buy a product from them if the price is right - either way they generate income for their cause, so it's all good.
If you think its "unfair" dont use and you can make a donation anytime. Wearing their kit, even cheaply, still gets their message out there. Better still would be UK plc looking after the people who they put in harms way in the first place but we are where we are.
It's also possible by wearing this could visually impact on people to donate to a worthwhile charity
It's not a glitch, HfH have created the code, it will generate more sales, struggling to see the negative.

So as supposed to making a donation and receiving a t shirt or something to show your support, you'd rather get the t shirt for as little as possible to show..... what? Is it a fashion brand?
If folk are moaning about a free delivery code, make a purchase and add the extra as a donation. Simple.

It's a promotional incentive to sell more merchandise and therefore make more for their cause by increasing sales....

It's a simple business model that many companies employ.... Sometimes wonder how some people get by.....

If it bothers you that much then stick a fiver in a charity box this weekend after you've ordered something from them, I'm assuming that you've bought something from them and donated to their cause seen as you're moaning about it? (And yes I have...)
As a disabled veteran I know from experience that they are more interested in current conflicts rather than the likes of Ni,Bosnia,Falklands etc. Is it a worthwhile charity of course it is, but see how much the top bods get paid and you may wonder where all the money goes.

I fail to see how one thing affects the other. I sincerely doubt they favour one veterans war over another, because an injury is an injury, a veteran is a veteran. The first question they ask isn't "which one were you in?" Before they provide help.
Im by no means an expert at all, but most charities pay a lot of money in running costs, management included.
I'm also a veteran, and appreciate them trying to help us.

You didn't answer my question yet expect me to answer yours. Basically you're suggesting people want to make a donation and receiving a T shirt (or whatever) in return to show that support.... I think most people want the T shirt (or whatever) because they like the aims of the charity but also like the item they have bought, so the donation is secondary not primary. Otherwise they would surely just send a cheque or do a straight online donation to get nothing back.

Using your argument, why would you want to receive a T shirt (or whatever) which costs the charity money, when you could just send them the money for a straight donation? I don't get your logic at all!

The problem is that as a company, and now a massive business, it needs to be managed. If you could manage massive businesses with directors and managers on £20k a year I'm sure every business would be doing it. To attract the necessary calibre of leadership you have to pay a market level, because you're not going to find someone who can command a strong salary who is happy to work for lots less, just because it is a charity.

There were senate hearings a few years back into US armed services charities. One of the directors when questioned admitted that out of every dollar donated to his charity around one cent actually went towards veterans. There were more efficient charities out there but any inefficient charity would not continue to exist if it had the best interests of former servicemen at heart.

Oh dear God it's like arguing with a custard cream. ITS A CODE FOR FREE DELIVERY SO THEY CAN ATTRACT MORE CUSTOMERS.... more customers means more profit for this fantastic charity. I reiterate .. THEY OFFER THE FREE DELIVERY... if it becomes an ethical dilemma for you there is a simple solution.... DON'T USE IT...
Thanks for the heads up, Op. I've not looked at the site before, so the post has got me looking at it, and possibly buying something.
It is a personal choice to use or not use the code, and regardless, the company will make a profit. So not much point squabbling about it! If you want to donate extra, don't use the code.
