Yes, you read that correctly. Woolworths are practically giving away 2100 Microsoft points to new online customers. £7.95 is a ridiculously low price, essentially saving you nearly a tenner compared to... everywhere else. It's very rare that a deal this good comes along; and frankly, it sounds too good to be true. However, I've tested its authenticity (and bought some myself)... but there's no telling how long this amazing deal will last. Just follow the simple steps below to get involved.
(Ed. As our sister site has noted, do bear in mind that Littlewoods have been known to be incredibly twitchy when it comes to voucher misuse and be sure to check the Terms and Conditions of any voucher code that you might use - you can do this before final payment. Also note that Shop Direct merchants recover the full cost and then refund the discounted amount upon product dispatch.)
- Add the points to the basket and check out, paying £19 for the card and £3.95 for delivery...
- Create a new account as per normal
- Type in voucher code ZZ437 for a £15 reduction
- And...that's it! Magically watch the £22.95 reduce to less than £8.
That's it, folks! Why not browse the latest XBLA roundup for the best ways of making your points go even further?
NB: A few people people have reported problems with these kinds of voucher code. I personally have never had any problems with Shop Direct vouchers (as do the majority of users), but please let us know if you experience any. Always keep your digital receipts safe, and remember that they will often debit the full amount and refund you the difference shortly afterwards. [Thanks for the heads up, Kev and John!]
UPDATE: We reached out to Woolies for comment, and this is the official line:
"Thanks for getting in touch with Woolworths.co.uk.
If you use a cash discount promotion, such as £15.00 off, and you pay for your order with a credit or debit card, we’ll process your payment in two stages. First we’ll charge your card with the full price of the order and then we’ll refund to your card 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. We’re sorry if this causes you any problems.
We hope this has answered your question. If you need more help, just email us."
