    No wonder they give out vouchers - does anyone pay their prices for tea and cake?!! My mum and I went in on Tuesday to the expresso bar quite late in the afternoon (and the only cakes left were the more expensive ones) and if we were paying it was just short of £13!!
    No buying toiletries challenge - possibly for most of 2011,2012,2013,2014,2015!
    £1 in sealed pot for each UU (2011 135/500) 2012 have UU 130/400 (never realised I had a mini chemist under my bed!!!) 2013 UU 156/350. 2014 UU 197/250 2015 UU 16/100

    I find the brick size shortbread is good value. The tea is on the expensive side, but I don't mind paying a little extra for the ambience
    I'm saving my December voucher for when I'm next in London. May visit Waitrose on Oxford Street to get my free daily drink and then later/earlier a JL cafe for my drink + cake

    I got the vouchers and card after a few weeks and used this for the first time on Saturday (my wife did it also). Nearly £12 worth of cake and hot drink for free Although I'd never pay it!

    Has anyone else had problems receiving their card? I ordered mine on 31 Oct and still haven't received it. They told me they had sent the first card to the wrong address and reissued it on 25 Nov when I called to see what was happening. A few weeks later I called as I hadn't received the second one to be told it can take up to 4 weeks. I contacted them again yesterday as still nothing after 4 weeks and was now told it can take 4-6 weeks. I have an email address to escalate it if it doesn't arrive in 6 weeks. I am concerned about my data being lost and sent to the wrong address not to mention offering vouchers on sign up which im not receiving.

    Sorry for the late reply. I hope yours arrives soon. It's now 6 weeks since they said they reissued the card and coming up for 3 months since I originally applied and still nothing. Im not impressed, particularly with the dismissive responses I got from the "my John lewis" department. I am planning to write a formal complaint to their head office if it doesn't arrive by the end of this week. Any good will from offering these vouchers is rapidly decreasing and I am concerned about the security of my details.

    Couldn't hold on to my January voucher any longer. I treated myself to an almond Bakewell tart and pot of tea. Wouldn't recommend the Bakewell tart.

    JL Tea and Cake
    Was visiting London last weekend as treat for daughter's birthday. We went for afternoon tea and cake after shopping on Oxford street. Thanks JL for restoring a bit of my sanity after shopping for a couple of hours with a teenager! I had to pay for daughter but I can't complain. The manager even carried my tray when my daughter disappeared without thinking to find a seat, leaving me with a case, two bags and a tray of cake and drinks.

    Got 6 "Free Drin& cake" vouchers with my new card, one per month starting from january2014 and ending june 2014, But the original offer description on MSE talked about one voucher per month without specifying it was for 6 months only.
    I guess it was too much to expect an ongoing deal. Any thoughts?

    They'll send out more 6 month vouchers later for July onwards.
    Although I do wonder if so many join up whether this perk will continue for long.

    Went yesterday for my monthly cakefest. Admittedly it was Thursday, but as usual the restaurant was very full. I wasn't even asked if I was paying cash, just if I had my voucher! Perhaps I just look like someone who likes cake?


    Had cappuccino and coffee and walnut cake. Planning on carrot cake for next month.

    Grrr at ^ - my friend wanted a coffee cake yesterday but there was none. The carrot cake is very good.

    FYI you can have the deluxe hot chocolate with the vouchers as well - snaffling an extra 50p's worth per cup lol.
