Everything you need to know about voucher codes
What are Voucher Codes, Discount Codes, Promotional codes, Coupon codes etc?
Different retailers and people in general, call Voucher codes by many different names. Coupon codes, Discount Codes, Promo Codes, Promotional Voucher are all different names for the same thing, a Voucher Code. In the UK, most people use the term Voucher Code, while in the US, Coupon Code is more regularly used. Voucher Codes are normally made up of a series of numbers, letters or often a mixture of both, that can be entered on a specific retailers online checkout to get a discount on your purchase. Some voucher codes get you a free gift or free delivery on your purchases rather than a discount.

Some voucher codes are valid for a year or more, but more often a voucher code will be valid for a month, a week and sometimes just a few hours. When planning to make a purchase, it is always best to complete it a soon as possible as retailers often cut short or cancel a particular voucher code before the publicised expiry date. We always work hard to ensure our voucher codes are up to date and remove any expired codes when we discover it is no longer valid.
How many times can I use a voucher code?
That all depends on the retailer and the terms and conditions they impose on their voucher codes. Some voucher codes can only be used “One per Customer”, others are only valid for new customers only, but many can be used as many times as you like. It is always worth keeping in mind that yo may only be able to enter the voucher code once so make your most expensive purchase first.
