These vouchers keep on getting better and better.

BTW. Mobile phones seem to be similar prices to other online retailers, so you'll be getting the most out of the discount voucher

Is anyone else actually managed to use this, doesn't seem to be working for me?

new customers only -

Sweet! ty :thumbsup:

i used it two days ago, first order only, and did it over the phone, on a order of £579 cooker, got 30% off this so got it for £396..... yes it is over the £500 max limit, but they still done this for me........

I made a cock up with my order and used the wrong code for only 15% (long story), I rang up the helpdesk and the guy said he couldn't change the order at that stage but if I waited 28 days till my first statement (i chose to set up an account with them) I would be able to sort it out then. I'm a little sceptical and not really sure what I should do now, any thoughts?

if goods are returnable - could send it all back (free collection/postage) and order from one of the other sites. I did something similar at christmas, hit order items without putting any code. Sent all items back and placed new order with additions direct instead.

I was thinking that, I will ring them up again later and see if I can get any sort of guarantees about the money coming off

have just got c.£160 off a pair of leather sofas on offer @ £549, code accepted and delivery scheduled etc.

Just don't like the way that they say they can invalidate the discount afterwards and demand the extra payment, if they do that then I'll return them I guess. :thinking:

voted hot BTW

Not working for, despite setting up a new credit account. Oh well, never mind, will have to wait for another code to get my new laptop.

Didn't work just now for me either. Looks like they may have pulled the plug early on this code

Didn't work for me either :x

no longer works for electricals

yeah they must have realised offering 30% plus vat discount on electricals isnt good business sense!

doesnt work

To the people using the code on items over £500 - you do realise that they can refuse the discount if you are not within the terms and conditions of the voucher. They can also give you the discount at first, then recharge it to your card/account in the future if they notice the error.

If, after accepting your order, we find that you were not entitled to use … If, after accepting your order, we find that you were not entitled to use the code or did not meet all the terms and conditions of its use, we may reverse the benefit that you obtained. If you transacted on a cash basis e.g. by debit or credit card, we may take a further payment, equivalent to the value of the benefit obtained, from the card used. If you transacted on a credit basis, the value of the benefit obtained may be charged to your credit account.



Risky business playing outside the T&C of these codes - just make sure you are happy to pay full whack if it comes to it.

But they also say via their help pages..
If you use a cash discount promotion, such as £10 off, and you pay for your order with a credit or debit card, then we will process your payment in two stages. First we will charge your card with the full price of the order then we will refund your card with the value of the discount.

Please note that the payment and refund may not occur simultaneously but the refund will be made no later than when your order is despatched. Please be assured that if you were selected to receive the offer and your order meets the applicable terms and conditions, the refund will be applied to ensure that you receive the correct discounted price overall.

I was a bit worried about the pending order for the Mac Mini I ordered priced at £509, but checking my order confirmation is shows the price as £ 498.17, I guess it's something to do with the VAT rate change.

Lets hope they honor it!

Yes, absolutely - there is no problem with these codes when they are used correctly. However, if you stray outside the terms and conditions (eg not a new customer, overspend, wrong type of item) then beware - Littlewoods can, and probably will take the discounted amout back from you. This code is perfectly valid, as it is taken from their own site - just use it according to the T&C folks..............

Like the Killzone thread, lots of people have posted "hey it worked for me" because the discounted amount showed up on their account, email and even on their bank statement. What they fail to realise is that just because the discount has shown up on the order, or it has even been applied and debited/credited correctly, that does not mean Littlewoods will necessarily honour it......

I quote from the voucher T&C again.........

Does that voucher cover washing machines?

It did at first, made a list of washing machines the night before and decided on the one we wanted yesterday but when we went to order it the crafty so&so's had changed the T&C's to exclude electricals!

I think you can still get 15% off with another code posted somewhere (xx115?) plus 8% quidco but the machine we wanted would be nowhere near the bargain it would have been!

"The percentage discount will apply to goods bought up to a maximum value of £500"
I think it's safe to order over £500 despite this - I read the above as saying they'll give discount on the goods up to the first £500, so if you spent £600 you'd get 30% off the first £500 (£150) but no discount off the remaining £100. Whether they intend it that way or not, it's a bit of an ambiguous statement so I don't think they could claim any more back from you than the bit over £500 if they did try.
I got a (this) Sony laptop from them a few days ago - was £900, I paid £350. Just in time before the electricals plug was pulled. Fingers crossed they don't try anything because I was perfectly correct at the time.

I must be one of the luckiest people on here i ordered 2 MAC BOOKS RRP £950 one for me the other for my brother. Got them next day delivery and checked the credit card and they have charged the correct amount £650. I cant imagine getting a bigger discount than that on a MAC, £1,300 for 2.
Good post
Cheers

Hi - it only works straight after you setup your new account. if you log back into it you can't use it.

I ordered myself a nice bike using this code on Littlewoods direct, nearly hesitated but I didn't, good job because the next day I went on there they had gone up by £60! Saved a packet with this code, really happy.
