    Fiddly £5 spend-anywhere voucher for £2.54 spend

    Fiddly £5 spend-anywhere voucher for £2.54 spend 18th Jun 07 at 12:56 PM
    What's the deal?

    PC World's running a promotion with 3M and The Apprentice (phew!) which offers a redeemable £5 gift voucher for purchasing selected 3M products. The cheapest qualifying purchase is £2.54, so you can almost double your money through redemption.

    The £5 voucher can be spent anywhere, as it's issued by Maestro (it's just like a prepaid debit card), not PC World. Furthermore, you can claim more than one voucher, and you can spend as many as you like at once. So, while this is a bit fiddly (see below), you can potentially make some profit from it.

    How can I get the voucher?

    Either shop online or in-store at PC World for the 3M products that qualify for the deal. These are listed quite clearly on the special promotion page. The cheapeast way to qualify is to buy two packs of scotch tape with dispensers, at a cost of £1.27 each (plus postage if you're buying online). Make sure you don't open them yet, you'll need the packaging to claim.

    Next, you'll need to get a claim form to attach your packaging's barcodes to. You can either print one directly from PC World's site, or pick one up in-store. You need one claim form per £5 redemption. For each, staple your barcodes to the corner (all this is written on the form), then fill in your details and post to the address provided. You can post more than one form in the same envelope to save on postage. The voucher should arrive within 28 days.

    Anything else I should know?

    The offer ends 30 June, and applications must be received by 14th July.

    You can use multiple gift cards in the same transaction.
