Default Freemans 30% off first order

It seems that despite already haven taken advantage of the 20% first order code (and 5% quidco) on the purchase of a 32" Samsung LCD TV (thread over on Grab IT Forum) that whichever system at Freemans that generates paper-mail doesn't know I have placed my first order already and they are sending me offers.

The latest one is 30% off first order by quoting code DNBP - not sure if this is of any use to anyone else..

According to the blurb it's off anything in the catalogue.

It suggests entering the code at www.freemans.com/welcome

I have just tries to get a TV and on the last page it states:

Prices shown for products from our Discover range already include your discount. Please note that all other discounts applied to your order will NOT be shown in your bag above, but will be deducted before payment is taken. Discounts do not apply to electrical products, for more information click here

Default Not on electricals?

That's strange the letter actually suggests:

"Or you might have your eye on a Sony digital camera costing 250 - you could save an incredible 75 with this offer"

Many, many thanks, foxyloxy.

This brings my 3-month battle with Freemans over 32" Samsung to happy conclusion.

As no discount had been applied, phone up the internet sales/credit line (number from 'Quick! Grabbit while you can' thread) and they quite happily applied the 30% new customer discount.

If you do as the first post says and clear your cookies before hand it should work.
If the discount doesnt work you can always cancel your order.

That's weird, I tried that last night several times and the discount never appeared all the way through checkout. It only showed the discount codes used but never actually showed the amount discounted.

Can you tell us exactly what you did to get the voucher taken?
Did you enter it at checkout by replacing the 20% code and pressed update?
Or did you simply enter the new code in the second voucher box?
