M&S Voucher

(30 Posts)

I was given an m&s voucher (and debenhams of same value) of £50.
What the fuck?
It's awful
If I asked, could I trade it for a refund?

It's not that bad. If you really hate the clothes, I could easily spend £50 in M&S in the home section, beauty section, kid's clothes, food hall or night wear or on their bags and shoes.

Give them to me.

You sound really ungrateful!

Have you looked at the website? What kind of things do you like?

MrPoppersPenguins Mon 20-Feb-17 22:35:57

We are saving ours to buy the meals for £10 (when our 2nd baby arrives and we are too exhausted to cook)

ElectronicDischarge Mon 20-Feb-17 22:42:54

I'm not ungrateful. But it was given to me by family who prefer to give rather than attempt to know the recipient.
If anyone wanted it, I'd happily sell.

I was in my local one. I found a dress I considered OK, til I saw the price. Far too much for a basic cotton wrap.

I don't want to spend it on food it may have to

nursebickypegs Mon 20-Feb-17 22:49:56

I'll have it! Don't be ungrateful!

ElectronicDischarge Mon 20-Feb-17 22:53:23

Seriously. Anyone wants it. I'll send them it

Pm me

Food, wine, chocolates, underwear, flowers, plants, jewellery, sox, tights, bedding, throws, kitchen stuff, crockery, scarves, gloves, sports gear, bags ...... Seriously, leaving aside the crappy clothes, you can't find anything to spend your M&S voucher in? confused

EggsEleven Mon 20-Feb-17 23:09:28

I think you're cutting your nose off to spite your face now OP and being stubborn in your determination not to like a single thing in M&S grin

Underwear for all the family (but never bras), thermals, food. All good. And swap out the £50 from the family budget into your own paws.

Wine
Dine in for £10 meals
Cranberry and walnut bread
The Limited Collection stuff is OK
Homeware
School uniform
Kids shoes

I literally can't. I have enough clothes for child for the next several years.
Besides boxers for husband I'm stumped

All the beauty stuff in my local is shite. And wouldn't suit me. I spent a while vaguely swatching.

I'd rather not spend it on food. As it seems so mundane

My house is fully stocked. I don't need any sundries. And to be honest, it's ugly.

ElectronicDischarge Mon 20-Feb-17 23:14:50

I can't buy underwear as I'm breastfeeding and beyond the size of mortals

thenightsky Mon 20-Feb-17 23:15:38

Quick quick... they have a fab deal on wine at the mo.

Go there...buy six bottles... get mega discount. Buy more.

I did this last week.

Still pissed on quality fizz grin

thenightsky Mon 20-Feb-17 23:16:25

bollux... just seen your BF post.

ElectronicDischarge Mon 20-Feb-17 23:16:41

OK. Wine is tempting!

leccybill Mon 20-Feb-17 23:17:13

What's ugly?

Buy your food shop with it and keep the £50 cash.

HoneyDragon Mon 20-Feb-17 23:18:58

There's 20% off codes at present does that bring your dress down enough?

ElectronicDischarge Mon 20-Feb-17 23:19:35

I buy my food from the asda on my door. I'm a fab cook so can turn anything into something special. Hence not needing microwave dine ins

ElectronicDischarge Mon 20-Feb-17 23:20:36

Thanks HoneyDragon. That's great!

avamiah Mon 20-Feb-17 23:22:51

Electronic,
Have you heard of "FOOD BANKS"?
Buy the food and take it to your local food bank as there are plenty of families out there who would be grateful for your generous contribution.

ElectronicDischarge Mon 20-Feb-17 23:28:06

Of course I have

And despite how this sounds. I'm not far off using one myself.

I was gifted this by people who would rather seem generous than care. If I were given £100 in cash, I could do a lot for my family.

I think M&S is overpriced, hence not using for food. Especially when I can get amazing reduced times

BalletZeus Mon 20-Feb-17 23:28:54

Agreed, just pass it on to someone who will enjoy or need it.

avamiah Mon 20-Feb-17 23:45:59

Electronic,
It was a gift,and you can still do a lot for your family with these vouchers.
Both M&S and Debenhams have great sales all the time and you can get some great bargains.
So hold onto them as they have a long expiry date.
