Edit: The codes have been removed at Woolworth's request.

---------
This is pretty much the same as the very.co.uk new member codes out there (it's the same company), which normally we wouldn't post here. But since you can pay via PayPal, I thought this one is worth looking at. Just be aware that they have tried shenanigans in the past with trying to retroactively disable codes, so while it might be worth a punt that's something to bear in mind.

However, definitely don't try and register for another account to use these code again if you've already done so in the past. (I think they're doing address based checking to prevent this, which is why some people aren't able to place an order.)
---------

UPDATE: Woolworths got in touch and asked us to remove the codes.

Just tried it, and it went through! :) My brother will be really pleased if this actually works. And me and my dad will be even more pleased, because it means we won't have to go to a store at midnight. :P

Must be on a postcode basis, just retried with my parents address and went through fine as £25, would advise using IE to place order though, everytime i tried opening a differnt page when viewing the site in firefox it kept trying to download .jsp files

This is a nice deal if it works, but be wary. A few weeks ago, I ordered some Xbox Live Arcade Points through Woolworths using this code, but they ended up cancelling the order. I had to wait several days for a PayPal refund as well. The same thing happened to a lot of other people as well. From what I can gather, so many people caught wind of the deal that Woolworths ended up cancelling a lot of orders, leaving plenty of disappointed customers at the end of it all. Still, I hope things work out better for everyone this time.

Legally that is questionable. Contract is formed the moment money is taken. They have a legal obligation to provide you with the goods at that price. As you used paypal, that contract exists now.

Unless they've run out of stock, of course. Even pricing errors are irrelevant once money is taken!

Yeah was going to say the same thing. they've taken my money, i have a receipt and that is a legal contract. if they try anything i'll set anne robinson after them.

Does anybody know what the minimum order value is for the £20 off discount? Not interested in Black Ops but other stuff catches my eye... apparently £25 isn't enough to warrant £20 off though.

Not even going to try as Very are notorious for not honouring the coupons:

^ WKD, updated your post with a better link.

Personally, I think the code issue people are having is down to Woolworths/Very/Littlewoods actually getting off their arses and implementing proper checks on addresses to prevent users from using these codes if they're already on record. The £20 off code is a new customer code, we know that much - if you ask me, the people who are getting declined now are those who would have been charged back if they attempted this with previous very.co.uk deals.

Furthermore, we know that addresses on record with very.co.uk are being prevented from using that code. Everyone I know who attempted to get the last major Woolworths deal (which ultimately they cancelled) haven't been able to use this code. Same with a few people I know who went for a Killzone 2 deal last year. It may even just be tied to the address and nothing else... i.e. if someone has lived at your address and ordered from Littlewoods before, you might be blocked.

John - What error did you get when trying to enter the coupon? Even better if you can grab a screenshot of the error? I have a plan...

No error, but the code appeared below the order in red.

Ah okay. I noticed that if you're not careful, and you just do a search for Call of duty, it redirects you to woolworthsentertainment.co.uk, which won't accept the code. Worth noting..

This worked for me :) Although I did have problems with the 1st order code appearing in red and not working (think the session timed out!), so got the wife to register and it went through

Hmm, I'm trying to remember if I deleted that Very account now, because I tried to use a code before to get cheap Microsoft Points, then they cheekily cancelled the order and entered in a new one at full price. Fortunately, I was able to send them back for a full refund.


Well hopefully, it won't be the same story this time, as I have never had an account with Woolworths before, so I'm using the two codes legally.

worked fine for me, £25. However, I ordered it with a debit card and not paypal, is this not recommended?

It'll probably be fine, as long as you've never ordered anything from Woolworths/very.co.uk/Littlewoods before.
