2100 Microsoft Points £7.95 @ Woolworths (with voucher code)

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.)

  1. Add the points to the basket and check out, paying £19 for the card and £3.95 for delivery...
  2. Create a new account as per normal
  3. Type in voucher code ZZ437 for a £15 reduction
  4. 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."

UK only :(

Nice one! The order went through for me, let's see how long it takes (if ever)...

Matt Gardner  Apr. 4, 2010 at 19:35

Had to hit this one up. Likely to be the only time I use Woolies online!

Dunny  Apr. 4, 2010 at 20:13

Thanks, cant argue at that price! :)

lukekey  Apr. 4, 2010 at 20:14

thanks for this, fingers crossed.

Bill  Apr. 4, 2010 at 20:16

hey, does the code only work once? or could i order 10 of these for £40?

Nigel  Apr. 4, 2010 at 20:24

Works a treat, saves paying 99P for the same info on EBAY !. Many thanks.

akjaffa  Apr. 4, 2010 at 20:38

Great find, what a bargain! I've ordered one. Thanks

Nicola  Apr. 4, 2010 at 20:42

Nice tried this out and it worked!

kev  Apr. 4, 2010 at 20:54

owned by Shop Direct, who also own Littlewoods & Very, we all know how realiable their codes are

Jonathan Lester  Apr. 4, 2010 at 21:01

FYI, It's possible that Woolies will debit the entire amount (£22) and refund the difference shortly afterwards. Don't fret if the figures temporarily don't add up.

John  Apr. 4, 2010 at 21:26

"I haven’t yet found this on Hot UK Deals. Feel free to post it up!"

This deal was already posted (twice I think) and removed each time as it's not allowed, it's strange it's allowed to be posted here and rather irresponsibly with no warnings about the potential pitfalls about the deal.



Jonathan Lester  Apr. 4, 2010 at 21:51

You're right- there is a caveat. Edited and credited.

Jonathan Lester  Apr. 4, 2010 at 21:54

Not without committing a little fraud. I wouldn't try it as it may invalidate the original voucher as per the T&Cs.

James  Apr. 4, 2010 at 22:09

Totally irresponsible post. Watch how everyone who buys this with the codes gets the entire amount debited and the difference never refunded.

Just to clarify to everyone:
READ THE T&Cs FOR THE CODE! If you don't qualify to use the code, you'll be charged the entire amount and that will be that - no refund for the value of the codes used.

Strange how this is a 'sister' site (or whatever) to Bitterwallet who posted an article warning of the pitfalls of these Shop Direct "deals"...

If it's too good to be true.. it probably is. Do you think Woolworths/Shop Direct are really gonna let people have these for £4, probably losing them tonnes of money?

Spark  Apr. 4, 2010 at 22:14

Awesome deal if it works, thanks.

I actually used this to buy a 12 month Live card for £24. If they charge the full amount without immediate credits then I'll just return it for a refund.

Jonathan Lester  Apr. 4, 2010 at 22:20

Indeed, remember that the return and refund system is free.

Bullet  Apr. 4, 2010 at 22:43

Like Spark says, if they dont refund you then get a refund back, just dont use the code until you definetly know that you have only been charged £4 or that you have had the differnece refunded.

On another note, myself personally would not believe what they are doing to be legal, surely they are only allowed to take out what is verified at the checkout process regardless of of you are authorised to use the code, they shoul get that part checked first and if you are not authorised to use the code then refuse the sale, I can see why they do it this way (how many people either dont realise or realise to late once the item has been used) fly buggers.

jake  Apr. 4, 2010 at 22:48

the £15 off voucher is fine to use IF you are a new customer, however the free delivey code is only valid for people who were actually sent it in an e-mail or letter and if your a new customer then you will not have been!

Spark  Apr. 4, 2010 at 23:12

I think the golden rule with these codes really though is not to take the piss. If bulk orders start appearing then Woolworths/Littlewoods will feel either more inclined to cancel the orders or just try to exercise their right to charge the legal right without crediting any vouchers back.

A couple of orders per person from different email addresses should be fine, but it probably isn't wise to go a lot further than that.

Jonathan Lester  Apr. 4, 2010 at 23:18

I think you've got a point there. To be safe, we'll take the postage code out until we've rechecked the situation.

Spark  Apr. 4, 2010 at 23:38

Just out of curiosity, when anyone logs into their account, does the discount voucher show up in the transaction history anywhere?

Tim  Apr. 5, 2010 at 03:03

L - I - T - T - L - E - W - O - O - D - S

pointless deal........

akjaffa  Apr. 5, 2010 at 09:16

No, only the free delivery discount. But it showed in the email. If I don't get this the £15 refunded then I'll be returning.

dj urban  Apr. 5, 2010 at 10:29

I placed the order, got an email saying the discount etc, i looked at the account status just now says £22.95

checked my bank account balance and that amount has been deducted, £22.95 going to cancel and get a refund
