Default 25 hobbs gift card with Red magazine

Hi, I received my copy of Red magazine through the door today with a 25 gift card to spend in Hobbs. The conditions on the card say you can't use it online.

Sorry for the delay - the original OP was twig1 who posted it on 30/01/11 on the freebies (low spend board).

Hiya - the card expires on Monday 2nd May 2011 and is only valid on full priced merchandise excluding accessories. Can only be redeemed in stand alone hobbs stores only.
I've never been to one. OH said 'they're so clever with all the fine print only someone dumb would get so excited by a 25 voucher' - that was me then!!!

They have tops online for 19, 25, 29 and 35. Any of these would be cheap if they have them instore.
Does it say you can't combine giftcards? You could buy a load otherwise and buy a coat or bag!

Wouldn't they be classed as accessories?

Yes I class socks as clothes too - but apparently not in HobbsLand

I may pop into my local store before I buy the mag
