Default Decorating grants

My BIL has just been given a decorating grant for his new HA flat, paid in B&Q vouchers totalling £150. He can use these to buy paint, paper, brushes, rollers etc.

His question is, can he use the vouchers today and take advantage of B&Q's BOGOF crown paint offer?

Call B&Q to check but my Sis had these years ago for Comet and she was able to use them just like cash in store. Not only did she get the daily deals but also wangled an extra 10% for being "hard up" girls tut tut

I strongly suggest he starts by joining www.freegle.co.uk or freecycle if it operate locally. See what he can get for nowt, then buy the extras in B&Q.

Find someone over 60 and go with them on a Wednesday. Oldie folk get 10% off.
