I used the LX Direct ones the other day! Fantastic

Does anyone have anymore?

Maybe we could keep this thread going and add any special offers or codes you know about over the next few months?

hana Mon 16-Oct-06 11:32:24

elc has one for 20%| off code is SPACE

hana Mon 16-Oct-06 11:33:00

but is LX any good? they always look a bit dodgy to me....did you have a good experience?

anniebear Mon 16-Oct-06 11:35:47

well I haven't received the doll yet but did only order it yesterday!!!

I know plenty of others who have ordered. I thought it was just a catalogue like Kays, freemans etc?

lexiemum Tue 17-Oct-06 06:54:16

i received an LX order yesterday - delivered as per date given on invoice. another LX order expected at my mums today (ordered sun pm)

anniebear Tue 17-Oct-06 07:13:33

Lol, I am off to my Mums today to order off her pc also (LX Direct!!!!)

anniebear Tue 17-Oct-06 12:53:18

Baby Annabelle arrived today

dottee Tue 17-Oct-06 12:56:42

I bought a V-tech smile through LX a couple of years ago via a code I 'bought' off e-bay.

Console worked a treat, Code for 50p got £20 off and although I thought I was getting into something dodgy at the time, everything went well. LX discovered what was happening a while after but too late - I'd paid my invoice.

flustered Tue 17-Oct-06 13:58:21

Woolworths are doing 10% discount enter code WW1 and if you request to pick up from store delivery is free .

Twirl Wed 25-Oct-06 14:33:59

woolworths code is still working, i've just used it!

Gillian76 Wed 25-Oct-06 14:40:07

I just ordered with ELC - a couple of things for us and for my sister too. We saved £30!

JoPG Wed 25-Oct-06 14:53:47

I used an lxdirect code that I found on mumsnet and my stuff arrived fine - very pleased.
Will be checking out that ELC code!

mollymay Wed 25-Oct-06 23:37:29

just tried to use the ELC code and it won't let me!

Gillian76 Thu 26-Oct-06 08:57:58

Mollymay I used a birthday club code (BIG036). You could try it

bigfatbump Thu 26-Oct-06 14:48:47

I think I saw that BABY worked on elc, either 15 or 20% off. I was planning on trying it tonight, hope it's OK.

Marne Thu 26-Oct-06 16:09:14

I cant get the LX code to work it keeps sayinr 'eror on page'

Joceybean Thu 26-Oct-06 17:22:16 have sent me an email 20% off everything except electricals, and 10% off electricals. codes XX060 - 20% XX019 10%. Not sure if you need to have an account to use these though.

spooxooky Thu 26-Oct-06 18:30:16


childminderjanet Fri 27-Oct-06 08:33:11

baby definately gives you 20% off at early learning centre but these codes only work for so long before they change them, so get shopping

missd Sat 28-Oct-06 15:46:24

have a look on
she always has info on codes and offers.

madmarchscare Sat 28-Oct-06 16:02:16

STAR is another one for ELC

madmarchscare Sat 28-Oct-06 16:02:38

20% off that is.

foxtrot Sat 28-Oct-06 16:03:39

2 for 1 on photo calendars here. I got some for grandparents last year with pictures of my dc - they loved them. photocalendars

Twirl Sat 28-Oct-06 22:18:48

Sadly, I can't get the LX direct codes to work.

2pumpkin2pumpkin1 Sun 29-Oct-06 09:30:14

I subscribe to \link{}.

Can get some good codes (but plenty of spam too - easy to delete though).

2pumpkin2pumpkin1 Sun 29-Oct-06 09:30:59

sorry this .

I just thought I had the hang of linking!!!

anniebear Sun 29-Oct-06 11:08:25


thats a fantastic site

thank you so much

have just bought Baby anabelle for £19 instead of £35!!

(hopefully this one will be ok after the LX Fiasco lo)

firemaiden Sun 29-Oct-06 13:55:27

That site suggests if you spend £75 at ELC you'll get free delivery but I can't see this offered anywhere. Any idea how to activate it?

2pumpkin2pumpkin1 Sun 29-Oct-06 17:45:32

Some stores don't actually offer a discount AFAIKS - they just subscribe to the site as a form of advertising & link to their site - but never offer discounts. Some are very good (like ELC). I think delivery used to be free at ELC on all orders above £75 anyway - without a code - they are just 'advertising' this fact. Have just checked and it is now £100 - I think vouchercodes is just out of date. This is the first inaccurate example I have seen.

The way the site is supposed to work is that members send details of codes they find out about through other routes. E.g I have just had a letter with a code for 20% off at ELC until 24/11/06 - enter STAR at checkout. I should (and will) submit this to the site for everyone to see.

You can also let them know if a code is no longer valid etc. Will let them know that the free delivery one is inaccurate.

I think you would save more at ELC using the 'STAR' code for 20% discout anyway - especially if you plan to spend £75.

firemaiden Mon 30-Oct-06 19:23:43

PUMPKIN2, I didn't plan to spend more than £75 but ended up spending £125 . STAR discount made that £100 with free delivery so given I bought about 8 things and they are all useful/wanted presents, I'd agree that's a bargain!

2pumpkin2pumpkin1 Mon 30-Oct-06 19:34:25

Tis too easy with ELC - isn't it?

Going in store tomorrow (I like browsing) - lets see how much I spend (I have a old fashioned paper voucher so won't loose my 20% ).

isntbeingamummyyummy Tue 31-Oct-06 11:57:18

If you want photos printed on, type PUMPKIN in the offer box for half price 7x5 prints so they work out at 10p each.

LucyJones Tue 31-Oct-06 12:00:40

Boots are doing buy one get one free on their photo albums if anyone needs to stcok up for the Christmas photos

flustered Wed 01-Nov-06 23:08:18

HMV are offering a 15% Discount on CDs Games and DVDs. Enter promotion code WK8495, I have just used it buying a Santa Claus the movie 2 DVD.

bubblerock Wed 01-Nov-06 23:18:46

I always check if I can get cashback through quidco and if there is a voucher code on hotukdeals before I buy anything.

firemaiden Fri 03-Nov-06 22:13:47

anyone know any codes for Bright Minds? Seen some nice stuff but very overpriced

cece Fri 03-Nov-06 22:33:08

I also click through Rpoints too.

TAY0606 Sat 04-Nov-06 16:38:40

Hi - Just used the following LX Direct codes which have worked ZG0077 (£13.50off) and XX549 (10%+ free delivery). Saved a fortune. Good Luck! [grin}

fussymummy Sat 04-Nov-06 17:51:22

Just had email from Evans, they have 15% and free delivery until thursday.

anniebear Sat 04-Nov-06 19:55:20

do you need a code from Evans?

anniebear Sat 04-Nov-06 19:58:24

found it now! thanks

firemaiden Sat 04-Nov-06 21:21:48

TAY0606 - what shop was that?

anniebear Sat 04-Nov-06 21:37:09

its a catalogue, but you can look on line

a few of us had trouble with it, accepted the codes but we got charged the full amount

But rung them and got it changed

I got barbie telephones for my DD that were £25 and got them for £11.50 and a flashing scooter for £7.99 was meant to be £19.99!!!!!!!!!

I'm very happy!!!!

anniebear Sat 04-Nov-06 21:38:15

firemaiden Sat 04-Nov-06 22:06:47

Thanks. I'd better check it out - the scooter is just what we are looking for.

DingALongCow Sat 04-Nov-06 22:30:07

I used BT10 on and got 10% off , no minimum spend. I used it yesterday and the parcel arrived this morning (at my mums in the UK). To say I am impressed would be an understatement. Customer service is outstanding-they have a live chat option so you can access a customer service rep online immediately for any questions. They also have a Saturday courier delivery option and Royal Mail, which is fab as most similar sites only do courier delivery 9-5 on weekdays. have free UK postage on orders over £25 until the 22nd Nov with the code FREEPOSTNOVUK25.
They also have a special offer on small photobooks-Stylebooks. £5 off (so they are just £9.99) with the code MYFIRSTSTYLEBOOK. They also do very quick international delivery on photos (2/3 days to Switzerland) and personalised calendars in only 3 days more.

DingALongCow Sat 04-Nov-06 22:31:13

Forgot to add, the Stylebooks offer is only until the 14th November.

hoolagirl Mon 06-Nov-06 10:26:09

Toys r us, £5 off every internet order with code '123527'

anniebear Mon 06-Nov-06 14:34:08


were do you put the code in?

I am trying to order a bike now but can't see anywhere to put the code?

jackieglyn Mon 06-Nov-06 15:46:11

i cant see where you put the code in either!!!


TwoToTango Mon 06-Nov-06 17:13:51

I emailed toys r us about their promotional codes - they have just replied with the following message

Dear Sir/Madam,

Thank you for your recent e-mail.

Currently there is not anywhere on our website to accept promotional codes as we are not running any. Any codes you have gained from other internet sites are fake and have never been in use by Toys R Us.

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused. Should you have any further queries, then please do not hesitate to contact us again.

anniebear Mon 06-Nov-06 19:27:28


firemaiden Mon 06-Nov-06 20:54:50

umm, I ordered online from toysrus recently (ie within the last month) and they sent the goods plus a £5 voucher - only redeemable on line - with the promotional code 123527. Hope they are not repudiating their own offers.

TwoToTango Tue 07-Nov-06 19:51:44

I'd email them - they replied really quickly to me.

Twirl Wed 08-Nov-06 13:24:41

Just to report that I used the 10% off woolworths code recently and am still waiting for goods to arrive after 3 weeks! I ordered 5 items and every item has been dispatched individually resulting in many trips to post office sorting office. A real pain in the bum so wouldn't recommend them!

hoolagirl Thu 09-Nov-06 09:48:13

Don't know what happened with the toysrus code, it was a voucher they sent to me when I ordered something from them.

Anyhow, here's another,, Free Delivery from Next until the 30th November with code K8004

marymay Thu 09-Nov-06 13:58:24

Heavenis Fri 10-Nov-06 16:17:31

Mothercare have got 10% off until 29 November VE6

prettymum Fri 10-Nov-06 16:54:38

pinkchampagne- i ended up registering twice with my second email and ended up with the same problem. luckily i purchased my items before logging off after registering!

bluesky Fri 10-Nov-06 17:46:05

thanks for LX codes, just got the boys some stuff, brilliant! They are part of Littlewoods aren't they.

Pinkchampagne Fri 10-Nov-06 17:58:45

It's a pain isn't it?
I wanted to place another order, but have given up now!

thepoppy Fri 10-Nov-06 18:04:29

currys are doing 10% off until 24th Nov with 10EMAIL
Just bought 2 lindam safetygates from LX for £25.98. They do £10 discount if you buy 2, then with the other discounts worked out at slightly more than the individual price. Still waiting to see if they charge me right tho!

fifi26 Fri 10-Nov-06 18:05:15

Marne Wed 15-Nov-06 14:43:53

Just used the LX codes, got £25 off a Nintendo DS for DSS.

Also just used the Currys code to get 10% off a Ipod for DSS2

THANK YOU for all the codes you have just saved me £35

Beccarolloveragain Thu 16-Nov-06 14:21:47

Woohoo just well and truly started my Christmas shopping

Got DS the power rangers sports low rider trike he has seen in woolworths and was desperate for. It was 55 in there

And the peppa pig deluxe play house with mat that is normally 19 it was 16 on lx

Then used the 25 quid off code

So…….instead of 74 for both of them got them both inc delivery for £44.99

How cool is that!

LynnC Thu 16-Nov-06 14:37:28

Hi everyone - mothercare have 10% off until 26th November with code VE6.

LynnC Thu 16-Nov-06 14:38:47

oops just noticed Heavenis already posted that one!

TLV Thu 16-Nov-06 14:48:20

M&S are doing free delivery for online shopping, code is PCAHHZT

firemaiden Thu 16-Nov-06 17:40:18

Just to update on the toysrus £5 voucher. Having looked at mine more closely, I think it is actually for the website "with Toys r us" rather than for Toysrus themselves. Really annoying - found something else I would like to buy.

TwoToTango Thu 16-Nov-06 17:59:12

Whats the lx code for £25 off, I can't see it?

sammac Thu 16-Nov-06 18:25:39

ELC code for 20% off- BIG42, sent it as part of a birthday bonus, should be valid for a couple of weeks.

anniebear Thu 16-Nov-06 21:26:27

has anyone used the £13.50 off code for LX direct then used it again to buy something else?

ssd Thu 16-Nov-06 21:53:34

beccarollover I want to buy the power rangers trike, my ds is nearly 6 is he too old for it?

also how did you get £25 off, can only see £13.50 code/


TwoToTango Thu 16-Nov-06 21:59:34

anniebear - I was already registred with lxdirect, I think that code is for new customers. I just registered again using a different email address and it gave me the £13.50 off.

Nemo1977 Thu 16-Nov-06 22:10:34

ELC STAR 20% off should work until xmas eve.

Beccarolloveragain Fri 17-Nov-06 09:03:13

SSD this is the trike I ordered Power Rangers Trike

It says on hee suitable from 5 years so should be absolutely fine for a 6 year old.

The code I used was....

25 off £60 order with LX: ZQ4322

I added something else I wanted to buy anyway to make it up to the £60.


ssd Fri 17-Nov-06 10:22:33

thanks becca!

ds is almost 6 and goes his bike really fast, I just don't if the trike would be too slow for him, scared to show him it as he'll definatley want it, he's power rangers mad!

BTW what age is your ds?

Beccarolloveragain Fri 17-Nov-06 10:59:13

Mine is only 3 Hope he can work it!!

Like yours he is power rangers mad but I didnt think ready for a proper bike yet.

They look really cool though so Im sure they will both love them.

ZG9909 gets you £10 off and free delivery from LX. I've just ordered a stretch Scooby Doo, which is out at stock at Argos and Woolies, and got it for an amazing £9.99.

Thank you for starting this thread

Carameli Sun 19-Nov-06 20:52:57

has anyone used the £30 off 60 spend at littlewoods? Do you ave to have an account with them or can you use a debit card?

the same for the lx direct codes.

lexiemum Tue 21-Nov-06 13:12:29

found another code

15% off winter collection orders at JoJo Maman Bebe - type in code MTE62 at checkout - free p&p too

ukbargainer Tue 21-Nov-06 15:45:20

have you tried here: Send Me Discounts


ssd Tue 21-Nov-06 21:53:54

I'm trying to buy something with LX direct, do I need to open an flexible account with them to but it or can I pay by my visa?

PeachyClair Tue 21-Nov-06 22:14:07

In the past I've bought without an account

Fattymumma Tue 21-Nov-06 23:15:34

im trying to use those littlewoods codes but it tells me they aren't valid with credit/debit card payments...but they don't let me open an account

firemaiden Sat 25-Nov-06 15:27:26

Anyone got a discount code for Hotel chocolat? I've tried the Voucher Codes website and it suggests some discount codes but HC aren't accepting them . Knowing that there are some codes out there, makes me reluctant to pay full price particularly since chocs will come to me and then i will send them out with other things (so 2 delivery costs). Alternatively, can anyone recommend other good chocolate websites?

xmasmummy Sun 26-Nov-06 13:28:37

does anyone have any discount codes for toysrus and argos online please?

fifi26 Sun 26-Nov-06 14:36:33

I've looked on vouchercodes and hotukdeals and neither site has anything for either store. Think you will be lucky to find any if they're not mentioned on those two sites. Might be worth looking at buying through quidco for cashback but the site is down at the moment.

firemaiden Sun 26-Nov-06 15:14:49

Thanks for looking anyway.

jollydiane Fri 13-Jun-08 20:26:52

There is a 15% discount & free P&P for JoJo Maman Bebe, quote MTC81

This is my first message so I hope it will help someone. If anyone knows a code for phase eight I would be grateful.
