polyhymnia Sat 20-Apr-13 13:20:02

No but got a 'secret' card today.

blue2 Sat 20-Apr-13 13:20:07

Nope. Me neither.

LadyMountbatten Sat 20-Apr-13 13:21:22


im an idiot

BuildersTea Sat 20-Apr-13 13:21:51

No, what did it say?

I got the email about helping to improve children's sizing with a 20% code at the end of the survey.

Spookey80 Sat 20-Apr-13 13:22:19

Yes, me. Prob won't bother looking thoufh

LadyMountbatten Sat 20-Apr-13 13:22:51

Monday a bad day

polyhymnia Sat 20-Apr-13 13:31:51

It's actually pay day for me - but tempted by v little this season. A/W was better for me.

MrsJohnDeere Sat 20-Apr-13 14:23:25

No angry

peggyblackett Sat 20-Apr-13 14:24:31

Me! And they sent me a £10 voucher too smile

polyhymnia Sat 20-Apr-13 14:28:18

Might consider the 'fun' shopper though if the reduction's good enough .

scarlet76 Sat 20-Apr-13 18:15:42

Has Johnnie fallen on hard times or something?
2 weeks ago I got sent in the post a 10% off code with a £15 gift voucher.
10 days ago I got sent in the post a 15% off code with a £10 gift voucher.
They worked! I bought a cropped cashmere cardi and a pair of sunglasses ;-)
I had this secret thing in the post today. what's it all about.

Yes I got it. Johnnie thinks I'm special! I'm obviously not overtly sexually threatening.

foxysocks Sat 20-Apr-13 18:32:58

I've blocked johnnie. i got fed up of the CONSTANT emails.

madammecholet Sat 20-Apr-13 18:38:54

I. Got. Nothing. < it's like being the last to be picked for the hockey team. It's not on> grin

Crutchlow35 Sat 20-Apr-13 18:40:10

No but I got a voucher for money of celtic sheepskin.

Chubfuddler Sat 20-Apr-13 18:46:17

Yes I got a card. I got a tenner off flyer last week too (didn't use it couldn't find anything I particularly wanted).

Pandsbear Sat 20-Apr-13 18:47:30

Chubfuddler - me too!

TippiShagpile Sat 20-Apr-13 18:47:56

I blocked him. He was stalking me.

Pandsbear Sat 20-Apr-13 18:48:35

Arse, reply meant for Crutchlow35

reastie Sat 20-Apr-13 18:49:32

No I didn't <feels unloved>

I haven't had money off or an email, <<sulks>>

When is the sale?

fivefoottwowitheyesofblue Sat 20-Apr-13 19:41:24

I got a card too. Do we know what it is about. Monday 9am is not a good time for me to be somewhere with a wifi spot but I can be if it will be worth it!

Any ideas please?

skaen Sat 20-Apr-13 19:42:32

I had a card. I don't get paid for another week so v.bad time and nothing I really want.

OnTheNingNangNong Sat 20-Apr-13 20:08:40

I didn't get a card. Stuff you Johnnie. It's all pap anyway. <sulks>

Chubfuddler Sat 20-Apr-13 20:11:46

No I don't get paid till end of the week so rotten timing for me too. There's always the credit card but if its just a mid season sale it would have to be a big discount to tempt me. There's nothing I can't get similar in h & m this season.

theoriginalandbestrookie Sat 20-Apr-13 21:24:54

I got it but Monday morning is a rotten time for a sale, I will be at work.

Chubfuddler Sat 20-Apr-13 21:26:18

It's 24 hours according to the flyer, from 9am

WipsGlitter Sat 20-Apr-13 21:29:24

Interesting. Do you need a code? I was going to try some summer work trousers but was waiting for money off.

Chubfuddler Sat 20-Apr-13 21:30:13

Yes there's a code on my flyer but I presume it is individual

playftseforme Sat 20-Apr-13 21:31:44

I had the £10 voucher, dd did well out of that!

playftseforme Sat 20-Apr-13 21:32:30

Also got the secret flyer...

WipsGlitter Sat 20-Apr-13 21:34:23


Hassled Sat 20-Apr-13 21:36:22

I consigned Johnnie to Spam so I'd never have to hear from him again and now I want to he's playing hard to get - no post for me.

orangina Sat 20-Apr-13 21:37:06

I got nothing! Harumph!

pocketandsweet Sat 20-Apr-13 21:39:19

How flipping irritating. I have not gotten anything. I'm not sure what their strategy is exactly .... I've spent loads in the past and ( irritatingly) bought a few things at nearly full price. Doing this "secret" thing just pisses me off and makes me want to buy elsewhere.

PastaBeeandCheese Sat 20-Apr-13 22:58:11

I haven't got anything either <wails>

They obviously have me on their 'mug who is easily satisfied with 10%' list.

Euphemia Sat 20-Apr-13 23:36:36

Got a card. Can't use it at 9am as I will be taking the register. smile

LadyMountbatten Sun 21-Apr-13 00:36:01

Gotten is not a word

notso Sun 21-Apr-13 00:43:29

Me, I got a card today.
DS1 was all intrigued, he thought it was for a surprise party grin

bunnymother Sun 21-Apr-13 07:00:44

I have received the secret card, too. Which is a bit strange since I have bought 3 pairs of the Mini Boden leather ballets for the DDs, and that's it. Hardly a prized Boden customer. Might have a look at MrsCB's pretty broderie top, if it goes on sale, though.

reastie Sun 21-Apr-13 07:15:10

Is it just a code to use on Monday morning then? If anyone can't use theirs I don't have one and am at home with time on my hands on Monday morning if anyone fancies pming me their code/link/whatever it is so I can use it. Please. Pretty please. thanks

bobbinogs Sun 21-Apr-13 07:23:37

Gotten is not a word. It is, it's a past participle of get, first used in Britain in the 4th Century and in common use for centuries, gradually declined in favour of got but persists in America where it travelled over with Pilgrims. (pedant) (English lecturer) (got a card from Jonny)

pocketandsweet Sun 21-Apr-13 07:40:49

Thank you bobbinogs. It is a word. I'm North American sometimes these things happen.

juneau Sun 21-Apr-13 08:10:21

I got a card. I'm guessing it will be 20% off and free returns.

aftermay Sun 21-Apr-13 08:23:57

I got the card for the secret sale. Bizarre as it's on a postcard. What if the postman has read it too? So not that secret then.

IsItMeOr Sun 21-Apr-13 08:42:38

But I wanted a card. Not that I can use it at 9am Monday, but now I feel left out. Have bought loads from Boden for DS and me. (sulks)

scarlet76 Sun 21-Apr-13 09:11:22

I used to buy lots from Boden for myself and DC. Have bought far less in past couple of years, particularly as DC both think they are too cool to wear mini Boden.
I assumed the reason I get these offers is because Johnnie is trying to entice me back!

scarlet76 Sun 21-Apr-13 09:13:18

Agree with others about rubbish timing - week before payday never make me feel like splashing out.

IsItMeOr Sun 21-Apr-13 09:28:24

Hmm, you could be onto something there scarlet.

cardoon Sun 21-Apr-13 10:30:04

Is it invite only?

LadyMountbatten Sun 21-Apr-13 10:33:08

Well. It's a shit word.

FFS am inaccurate Monday at 9am. This is why I stopped buying from boden, other than stupid lairy prints that scream boden, the kids saying their clothes are way uncool and quality going down, the fact that they obviously think none of us work!

I bloody wanted some maternity tops though!!!!!hmm

Wonder if DH would order them from work????

Now just need to figure out what the bloody word is!! Can someone please PM me, I have an excuse, am terribly uneducated and what brain cells I did have seem to be dying off rapidly with this baby!!!

lottieandmia Sun 21-Apr-13 10:39:22

I got a card - is it everything in the sale for 24 hours?

See am inaccurate??WTF!!

Am at a course!

Please let me have the word guys, am going to get DH to get me some maternity tops!!!!

Chubfuddler Sun 21-Apr-13 13:57:19

It's not a word it's a code, which is what makes me think it is individual. I will pm it to you tomorrow evening after I've bought anything I want (which I provably won't).

Thank you that's fab.

Phaedra11 Sun 21-Apr-13 14:16:59

Boden are obviously absolutely desperate to get those who were disappointed with the Spring/Summer collections to buy something. I wasn't very impressed either, but bought the DSs pyjamas and myself a petite maxi dress because it's pretty difficult to find petite maxi dresses. This has obviously excluded me from the money off vouchers and secret sales.

I was considering buying some Boden basics, maybe some short sleeved tops and/or linen trousers now that the weather's getting warmer, but am put off by the idea that other people are getting them at sale prices envy.

I think I'm going to change my tactics with Boden next season, and not buy anything at all until they've sent me at least two money off vouchers and a secret sale invite!

Phaedra11 Sun 21-Apr-13 14:27:25

I suppose another possibility is that those of us who didn't receive a card live further away from Boden HQ and will get their card on Monday [insert hopeful emoticon here].

I'm not too hopeful though, as it seems to be the same people who got the money off vouchers who received the card.

Chubfuddler Sun 21-Apr-13 14:28:41

Only stuff I have bought from boden in last six months has been clearance so they are obviously trying to tempt me to buy from ss collection.

Belsize77 Sun 21-Apr-13 14:41:28

I just called them to ask if it was targeted and the lady on the phone said no...She said that whatever it is continues to the 1st May. May give the Mini website a try in that case.

So is it like a flash sale?

Will get my list ready, DH can shop for me in the morning!

Phaedra11 Sun 21-Apr-13 15:32:15

Well that's good then.

But why the code?

mejon Sun 21-Apr-13 15:38:09

I didn't get a card or a voucher as I have bought a few things for the DDs. DM who hasn't bought anything for years did get both but she's given them to me (set of pants for DD1 for £7 - thank you very much grin). She also gets catalogues sent almost weekly whereas I never get them.

Heavywheezing Sun 21-Apr-13 15:45:57

I haven't got the card but I have put he code in.
Have any of you tried? If you do it's already giving the discount off.
Joggers £6, t shirts £7' I have seen some at £4.
You have to pay postage though

SolomanDaisy Sun 21-Apr-13 16:07:58

So has everyone got the same code or is it individual?

Heavywheezing Sun 21-Apr-13 16:09:49

It's the same code

Phaedra11 Sun 21-Apr-13 16:18:13

I am getting quite confused about what Boden are offering or not offering now!

Is it something like this? Boden are having a mid-season sale that starts tomorrow and finishes on May 1st. Open to everyone. However, if you are on Johnny's "special" list, you have a card with a code that gives you an extra discount for Monday only. Lots of people know this code but can't tell us because that might prevent them from being able to use it. Fair enough. Or do the special people get the discount on Monday and then the sale starts on Tuesday?

Also, Heavywheezing does not have a card but knows the code. How? And when did shopping get so complicated?!

Heavywheezing Sun 21-Apr-13 16:23:44

Pm me if you'd like the code.
I'm in a group on Facebook for Boden resale, some have the code, and have shared it already.
Yes, it's a secret sale. That's not a secret. It's open to everyone from Tuesday.

Did you get my pm heavy wheezing? I can't work out if it went through or not?

Phaedra11 Sun 21-Apr-13 16:30:57

Heavywheezing, I have PMed you. Thank you so much for sharing and also for explaining!

madammecholet Sun 21-Apr-13 16:34:55

I've PM'd you heavywheezing... thanks! ;)

Have tried again. Thank you so much if you get it. Am in need of some Naice maternity boys and this would really help out.

twirlyagogo Sun 21-Apr-13 16:45:32

I'd love the code but I can't seem to be able to PM you Heavywheezing sad . . . .it just jumps up to the top of the page again when I click.

LadyMountbatten Sun 21-Apr-13 16:46:56

lol @ boden facebook group

you sad fuckers!! grin

middleagedspread Sun 21-Apr-13 16:51:03

Would anyone please consider PMing me the code? Am in need of a summer frock..

Phaedra11 Sun 21-Apr-13 16:55:27

twirly - maybe Heavywheezing's inbox is full with requests.

reastie Sun 21-Apr-13 17:21:43

middleaged no one has pmed me any code when I asked earlier <sobs>

Heavywheezing Sun 21-Apr-13 17:40:18

It was full. Surprised myself.

Fwiw, the Facebook page is for selling our old boden , prob for better prices the ebay, sometimes it's about sharing codes.

I'm sad, tis true

Phaedra11 Sun 21-Apr-13 17:45:50

Thank you so much for the code - Heavywheezing (I thought I'd avoid posting my thanks in a PM and further clogging your inbox)!

Will now pass it on to reastie and middleaged...

cardoon Sun 21-Apr-13 17:47:19

Could someone PM me please?

MrsJohnDeere Sun 21-Apr-13 17:47:47

Could some kind person PM me the code please flowers

Chubfuddler Sun 21-Apr-13 17:49:21

Right I am on mobile so initiating a pm is a faff as I have to type in the username and obviously get it right. But if someone pms me I will reply with the code (madam that includes you obviously, it seems it isn't an individual code).

Phaedra11 Sun 21-Apr-13 17:51:02

Have Pmed reastie, middleaged, cardoon and MrsJohnDeere with the code sent to me by Heavywheezing.

MrsJohnDeere Sun 21-Apr-13 17:51:40

Thank you.

cardoon Sun 21-Apr-13 17:59:37

Thanks, Phaedra smile

Fluffycloudland77 Sun 21-Apr-13 18:02:38

The code size gets you 20% off and free delivery and returns.

I'm just buying two basic vests, I'm not buying anything patterned with annoying names.

Phaedra11 Sun 21-Apr-13 18:17:49

Thanks Fluffycloud. The code from the card seems to be up to 40% off selected items.

Jcee Sun 21-Apr-13 18:20:51

Be grateful if someone could pm me the code please too - thanks

I can't believe they've left me out shock

Would someone please be kind enough to send me the code smilesmile

Jcee Sun 21-Apr-13 18:28:27

Thanks Heavy happy to pass code on if anyone else wants it

redmayneslips Sun 21-Apr-13 18:29:41

I would love the code too please if anyone would send it to me? I recently went back to work and desperately need some work clothes but am broke!


Fluffycloudland77 Sun 21-Apr-13 18:30:00

I bet it's not off plain vests though. It'll be off patterned stuff.

If it is off vests, do not tell me.

winefairy Sun 21-Apr-13 18:41:13

Would be overjoyed if someone would be kind enough to PM me the code too. Really like the look of the Soho maxi and a discount would sway me into a purchase. thanks

Another one who would love the code please if someone could PM? thanks

AndTwoBits Sun 21-Apr-13 18:49:16

I wonder would the code work in Rep of Ireland, does anyone know??? I am in Dublin and buy heaps of Boden clothes for myself and my girls. Would anyone like to pm me the code please? I would love to buy some ballerinas!

IsabelleRinging Sun 21-Apr-13 18:51:28

I got a survey about sizes with a 'secret' code for 20% off at the end. Had to measure dd, but thought if it helps them to sort out their sizing then I would measure her.

Phaedra11 Sun 21-Apr-13 18:51:39

Not valid on vests (not the one I bought anyway) but it does give a good discount on the Soho maxi dress. Have PMed you winefairy.

Jcee Sun 21-Apr-13 18:52:16

Pm-ed wine fairy, make tea and andtwobits

reastie Sun 21-Apr-13 18:57:28

Have been pmed code and just been nosying on boden wesbite on bits. Some nice reductions on some bits, will get some stuff for DD. It's annoying it's not free postage and returns though.

SillyBlueHat Sun 21-Apr-13 19:11:38

Could someone PM me the code? Please?

reastie Sun 21-Apr-13 19:15:34

Tried typing in the code already and discounts showing up - does this mean in the morning the prices will go down even more, or shall I order now?

WipsGlitter Sun 21-Apr-13 19:15:57

Would anyone mind pm-ing me the code? Thanks

pocketandsweet Sun 21-Apr-13 19:20:38

Was wondering the same as reastie.....

LadyMountbatten Sun 21-Apr-13 19:21:49

well H and I have a code each.. and they are different

Knuffels Sun 21-Apr-13 19:22:04

Would someone please pm me the code too? I used to get hundreds of offers from Jonny pleading with me to buy his stuff. Now I do actually buy his stuff he doesn't send me any offers. Sheesh.

LadyMountbatten Sun 21-Apr-13 19:22:52

My code is making no difference to the 5 things in my basket

LadyMountbatten Sun 21-Apr-13 19:24:08

Fluffycloudland77 Sun 21-Apr-13 19:39:27

Thank you pocket.

It's not working for me for some reason.

pocketandsweet Sun 21-Apr-13 19:41:01

Try putting something new in your basket and wait a minute.... That is when it started to work for me

Fluffycloudland77 Sun 21-Apr-13 19:42:15


Marylou2 Sun 21-Apr-13 19:43:58

Would be very grateful if anyone could PM me the sale code. Sorry to take up time on your Sunday evening.xx

CharlotteBronteSaurus Sun 21-Apr-13 19:46:02

hattymattie Sun 21-Apr-13 19:46:04

Please could I have code as just looked at website which is the same as usual for me. I obvs buy too much as have not received secret codesad

Phaedra11 Sun 21-Apr-13 19:49:39

I think the 40% code is only for selected items. Lots of dresses not so many trousers...

NewChoos Sun 21-Apr-13 20:02:54

can I have the code as well please?!

well fuck em. fuck em.

after all that i've spent there and i don't get a secret email.

that's the last time i shop with YOU boden! hahahaahahahahahah

middleagedspread Sun 21-Apr-13 20:20:18

Just ordered the Ledbury dress with a great discount smile

CashmereHoodlum Sun 21-Apr-13 20:20:40

Please could somebody PM me the code? I've checked my email and he just wants me to fill in a mini boden sizing thing sad

PastaBeeandCheese Sun 21-Apr-13 20:33:57

If anyone has a minute I'd love the code too.

Chubfuddler Sun 21-Apr-13 20:35:09

It's doing cock all to the summer Ponte dress for me. I'm not paying 69 quid for it.

AllTalkNo Sun 21-Apr-13 20:43:04

After the Zatchels excitement I'd like to transfer my wallet's contents towards the Boden sale but I haven't been sent the code. Would a kind person please PM me the details? Thank you flowers

MustTidyUpMustTidyUp Sun 21-Apr-13 20:50:57

Please please please may I have the code? Could someone PM me? Thanks. thanks

Delurking to request a code PM...pretty please with cherries on top?

FrameyMcFrame Sun 21-Apr-13 20:54:24

i did too.

I'm hoping to get a good discount on that green dress with a big bow on the front. Need a dress for a wedding...hoping it won't look crap on me like a lot of bodeny stuff does. I'm usually the wrong shape

MustTidyUpMustTidyUp Sun 21-Apr-13 20:56:39

Thank you Phaedra smile

FrameyMcFrame Sun 21-Apr-13 20:58:29

will it not just be a 20% off again?
Do they ever do really big discounts?

this is the link from the card I got in the post...

FrameyMcFrame Sun 21-Apr-13 21:06:09

ok slowly catching up.
There's a code on the card... 40% off
but not for the green dress with the massive bow on the front.
Bah Humbug.

Marrow Sun 21-Apr-13 21:06:55

Would be most grateful if someone could PM me the code. Have bought quite a few bits this season and a bit irritated that I've not been sent the code!

Chubfuddler Sun 21-Apr-13 21:09:09

That's why you haven't been sent it marrow - johnny has identified you as one of the suckers willing to pay full whack.

scarlet76 Sun 21-Apr-13 21:10:43

Well the code I have been sent appears to be working already... Up to 40% off selected items. Clearly Johnnie thinks he can pedal his tat to me as it looks like all the gopping stuff has been reduced. Anything half decent has not or has a teeny tiny discount. Having to pay £4 postage also doesn't make a small discount great.
Glad I used the codes and vouchers I was sent for sunglasses and a cashmere cardi as neither of these items are reduced.
I suspect he's trying to clear this stuff before he releases his ridiculously early autumn preview!!

FrameyMcFrame Sun 21-Apr-13 21:23:16

yes agreed, none of the nice things I liked are reduced to 40%

the green dress not reduced at all.
it says the code can only be used once on mine, so I will wait til tomorrow, if no more things are reduced then I will post it here

anchovies Sun 21-Apr-13 21:25:50

If anyone has a moment please could they pm me the code? thanks

Marrow Sun 21-Apr-13 21:34:32

Chubfuddler, no refuse to pay full price for Boden. Have managed to get 20% off everything I've bought so far for spring/summer.

Phaedra11 Sun 21-Apr-13 21:41:23

Marrow - me too but this preview seems to be for those who have bought nothing at all from the SS collection.

Heavywheezing Sun 21-Apr-13 21:51:33

anchovies and others i have tried to pm you with the code, but it just jumps, pm me if you want it

Pinkpiglet Sun 21-Apr-13 21:53:59

Could I possibly have the code please?
I made an order yesterday and would be very happy if I could get the things for less!
Thank you very much in advance.

Betterbet Sun 21-Apr-13 21:54:50

Pretty please could somebody kindly pm me the code? I will be very grateful

QuiteOldGal Sun 21-Apr-13 21:56:28

I didn't get the code and I haven't bought anything from SS. The last things I bought was the green rainyday mac when it was very heavily reduced with free postage.
I doubt if the trousers I want will be very reduced as there aren't many left and the trousers are never reduced much anyway.

daisydoodoo Sun 21-Apr-13 22:02:13

If anyone feels kind. Id love a code too please.

Halfling Sun 21-Apr-13 22:03:37

No code for me angry. And I have been so bloody loyal to them confused. Can someone please pass on the code to me.

roalddahl Sun 21-Apr-13 22:06:43

I'd be really grateful for the code too please. My postcard must be delayed in the post grin

frankietwospots Sun 21-Apr-13 22:10:08

Pretty please for the code! Thanks!

Dancergirl Sun 21-Apr-13 22:12:50

Why doesn't someone put the code on this thread rather than a million PMs...?

What's the difference?

Halfling Sun 21-Apr-13 22:20:17

Heavywheezing you are very kind. Thanks! smile

lisbethsopposite Sun 21-Apr-13 22:20:51

Previous codes did NOT work for me in RoI. Sterling gave discount, switch to Euro, invalid/expired code.
I abandoned Boden. <sulking emoticon>

MrsMcGregor Sun 21-Apr-13 22:27:20

Oh please can I have the code? flowers

LadyMountbatten Sun 21-Apr-13 22:31:50

Are we sure the code isn't individual ?

LadyMountbatten Sun 21-Apr-13 22:32:15

In the meantime SIZES gives you 20%

Fluffycloudland77 Sun 21-Apr-13 22:35:00

It's not working for me, but I've worked out if I got 40% off but paid postage I'm no better off so stuff it.

I used sizes earlier.

MrsMcGregor Sun 21-Apr-13 22:38:47

Thanks Heavy and Fluffy ... a shopping I shall go!

oh i didnt get one, and i ordered stuff from them last week

sneeky bastards

can someone pm me the code plz

Jagsy Sun 21-Apr-13 23:07:40

Please could someone pm me the code, pretty please?

Maybe someone might have time to pm me the code pretty please?
thank you
This is scary stuff !

Dancergirl Sun 21-Apr-13 23:51:28

Sizes didn't work for me, it said no longer valid.

Iggi101 Mon 22-Apr-13 00:23:23

Is there anything to stop me returning something I got last week and buying it again in the sale?

QuiteOldGal Mon 22-Apr-13 06:20:28

Iggi No reason at all why you shouldn't return it. I do. I just save all my free return labels so I've got plenty (easy now they send 2 with each purchase) and if the price drops just send it all back and re buy it.

Once I rang them up about further discounts on stuff I had bought and they told me to do this, I did think it was a bit of a waste of their postage costs though. For reason for sending back I put 'Went down in sale' grin

This is perhaps why I didn't get a code.

Iggi101 Mon 22-Apr-13 07:51:58

Thanks that very helpful, will do, just wondering now whether to wait till 9am or buy now..

Fluffycloudland77 Mon 22-Apr-13 07:56:04

size, not sizes is 20% off plus free postage and returns.

LadyMountbatten Mon 22-Apr-13 08:10:03

Ha. Sizes worked for me.

I think.

Belsize77 Mon 22-Apr-13 08:13:34

Put the code in last night to see what was discounted but didn't actually buy. This morning some things in my basket seem to have gone back up to only 20% off or full price. Will maybe wait to 9am or clear my cookies...

Has anyone else had this? I can't believe I am fussing so much over this sale but I am damned if I am paying 20 quid plus full price for trousers for a two year old!

Phaedra11 Mon 22-Apr-13 08:18:55

That happened last night but readjusted itself when I put the right code back in. It might also be an idea to go in via the link Framey McFrame posted a couple of pages back.

I'll only have time for a very quick look at 9.00 before dashing to work. I suppose that'll be enough to see if there are any further reductions though.

reastie Mon 22-Apr-13 08:20:14

yes belzise same thing happened to me - last ngiht basket was £55, this morning it's over £100 angry

LadyMountbatten Mon 22-Apr-13 08:20:58

No. It didn't work !!

Please could someone PM me the magic code?

wiltingfast Mon 22-Apr-13 08:26:14

Code? Code?! Bought stuff there last week and NOW there's a code? Grr. Anyone pm me please? <hopeful>

Phaedra11 Mon 22-Apr-13 08:40:11

Have PMed Antionette and wilting.

Maybe we need to wait until 9 for the code to work again? The "secret" sale was supposed to start then. Appparently.

PeskyPiskie Mon 22-Apr-13 08:55:24

Please can I have the code too? My husband threw the card away that I got sad. Thank you very much.

reastie Mon 22-Apr-13 09:02:19

OK, it's 9am and the discount I'm getting showing up is less than the one I manged on and off last night angry

Phaedra11 Mon 22-Apr-13 09:02:37

Have PMEd Piskie and been to sale site via Framey's link. Code is still working but seems to be same items as last night.

PeskyPiskie Mon 22-Apr-13 09:04:44

thank you Phaedra and reastie. I'm off shopping grin

reastie Mon 22-Apr-13 09:06:08

Am giving up on the sale sad . Last night girls tights were less than £5 with the code (I didn't buy then, don't know why), now they seem to be coming up as £8.40. Guess it must've been a glitch last night and I missed out sad

Phaedra11 Mon 22-Apr-13 09:07:21

I have the same deal as last night long as I go on via this link and stay there. It threw me off when I came over here

LadyMountbatten Mon 22-Apr-13 09:09:56

I PUT SIZE in and still got it cheaper!

Phaedra11 Mon 22-Apr-13 09:10:01

Aagh, that doesn't seem to work anymore. Well I'm not to fight any longer in my attempt to give Johnny my money...

Phaedra11 Mon 22-Apr-13 09:17:25

I'm going to work now but just to let you know that I managed to get the same offers as last night by using the link above, adding the items at full and then adding the secret code. Adding the code brought the price down to the larger discounts from last night.

Phaedra11 Mon 22-Apr-13 09:18:11

Should have said:

adding the items at full price.

Movingtimes Mon 22-Apr-13 09:19:50

I got a card but it seems to have disappeared in the weekend tidy up. Would someone be so kind as to pm me the code? Would be so grateful.

Phaedra11 Mon 22-Apr-13 09:23:36

Have PMed Movingtimes

The offer seems to be the same as last night so some items have heavy reductions, some minimal and some none at all.

So depending on what you're after, you might be better off with the code SIZE which gives 20% off everything and free delivery and returns.

Now I really am going to work!

Tongue in cheek rather than total mingebag LifeofPo ?

Nothing grabbing me on there. Lots were already in the clearance swizzle

Heavywheezing Mon 22-Apr-13 09:56:40

The code was a655, on Friday or Thursday, they had a code k507 which gave 40% off stuff.

Because some things were already discounted you could add the 20% code to this.

Some stuff had 70% off.

They sent out leaflets with the same offer on them minus delivery on Saturday about the sale but the discounts were still working.

This morning they have stopped the discount, but the code still works although not as good.

And not for the stuff you want. Hopefully everyone I messages used the code last night for bargains, as today I thought they would do this.

uncongenial Mon 22-Apr-13 10:26:41

SIZE code no longer works, just gives free postage. Same with my 15% off codes too. I wonder if they've stopped them all?

LadyMountbatten Mon 22-Apr-13 11:27:03

it is still working here!

Ujjayi Mon 22-Apr-13 14:47:54

I got an email this morning containing a secret sale invite. Just got a few bits for the DCs together with the Ibiza top in yellow and linen ruffle shirt in bellflower for me. Discounts weren't huge though - up to 50% but most items at 20-30 %(button back cardigan being one them *Lady Mountbatten!)

QuiteOldGal Mon 22-Apr-13 16:24:14

Well I got the secret email this morning but as I thought only a couple of pairs of trousers in the sale and then only 20% off and having to pay postage so not good at all. I will be better of using the SIZE code at least all the trousers are 20% off then with free postage as well

TheDevilsGherkins Tue 23-Apr-13 13:54:52

This was a shambles wasn't it? Everyone getting different 'tiers' of code and comparing notes? So everyone now knows exactly where they stand in the Boden pecking order. My code had no impact at all on website prices, and the whole much fan-fared event amounted to nothing, really. I didn't buy anything - it was all a waste of my time.

Compare and contrast with Zatchels' brilliant, transparent, '50% off the item of your choice' offer. Baukjen do the same from time to time, and I have to say it makes me feel much fonder of them than of Johnnie.

EmpressMaud Tue 23-Apr-13 13:58:52

It was a bit of a shambles really.

I received my 'secret' sale email this morning, but had already visited the site yesterday afternoon and shopped the sale items without the need for any code. The best discounts seemed to be on the knitwear and slightly out of season clothing.

middleagedspread Tue 23-Apr-13 17:39:14

I ordered a dress using the special sunday code that kind MNetters messaged me with. Reduced to £42 with the discount.
I received the confirmation email with the full price on & found out they'd already taken the money.
Customer Services were very good, I explained what had happened & they refunded me the difference.

scarlet76 Tue 23-Apr-13 17:49:47

Lady I have the button back jumper and thought it rather handy for work.
I work in the Criminal Justice System and my largely male caseload generally don't pass comment on my attire. This jumper is the exception:
'Did you put your cardi on back to front? Fnar Fnar'
'How do you do up all them buttons down your back?'
'Is it meant to be worn that way round?'
I can't deny that it has put me off it a tad!!

LadyMountbatten Tue 23-Apr-13 17:54:42

I have one similar from Ltd Coll a couple of years ago - baggy mohair. the JOY it brings to men is unbridled

LadyMountbatten Tue 23-Apr-13 17:55:47

did you size up or down?

redmayneslips Tue 23-Apr-13 20:39:43

Does anyone know if Boden ever out the shoes in a sale? I have my eye on the pewter mary janes for a party later this summer but they are still only 20% off...there seems to be plenty in stock in my size so I am debating holding off as there are a few other things I like the look of that are 50% off at the moment.....hmmmmm

I like the palazzo jumper in navy and the highbury dress in navy spot pattern and the draycott coat in navy - all with a good reduction right now and in my sizes. Think I am talking myself around here :-)

scarlet76 Wed 24-Apr-13 07:24:12

Lady - am a 6-8 in Boden. Got the 8 as I didn't want there to be any pull on the buttons. It's fine bit suspect the 6 would have been fine too.

Fluffycloudland77 Wed 24-Apr-13 08:18:11

You could order both sizes if its free returns, then just send back what you don't want.

My vests ought to arrive today.

middleagedspread Wed 24-Apr-13 17:31:30

The Ledbury dress arrived today. It looks dreadful on me, like a 6 year olds school uniform dress.

LadyMountbatten Wed 24-Apr-13 17:35:38

All going back.
White vest has granny ish hole at neckline
Cutting back jumper just odd.
Love the pink sandals but they're SO SO FLURO that I'm banking on th being reduced

Fluffycloudland77 Wed 24-Apr-13 19:21:14

My vests are going back too, fabrics too thin and the necklines too round.

I don't know why I got my hopes up really.

scarlet76 Sat 27-Apr-13 07:03:20

Lady I also like the look of the fluro sandals but am waiting for a reduction. It is against my principles to pay full price for Boden. Ever.
I didn't bother ordering anything in the end.
