Default M&S 5 voucher for donation to Oxfam

Forgive me if this is not the right place for this but have spotted the following:


Bring your unwanted M&S clothes to an Oxfam shop near you, get a £5 (€7) M&S voucher and help to end poverty. Be part of the M&S and Oxfam Clothes exchange


Note: The £5 voucher can only be used for a spend of £35 or over

See oxfam.org.uk for further details

Don't miss out on new deals, loopholes, and vouchers

I did this last week. But beware, the elderly sa opened my bag and asked whats this, these arent m&s. I had to explain that Per Una, Limited, etc, etc are all m&s clothes.

The vouchers are for the month ahead too, so in february you will get march vouchers and so on. I think its for a 6 month period.

Do you think that they would accept shoes or just clothing?

the leaflet says clothes but not lingerie, underwear, socks or damaged or soiled clothes. Will accept shoes, hanbags,belts hats or scarves. 5 spend is against 35 spend on clothes, home or beauty and lasts for 30 days.

The voucher I was given today expires on the 29th February - was told they will expire the end of the month that the goods are brought in - i.e. whether you take something in on the 1st of the month or the 21st, you will have to use your voucher by the end of that month.

forget that last question. I have just read on ther web site that you can take 1 item or as many as you like to claim the #5 voucher. I have loads of tee shirts which I pais #5.00 last year I could take one each time and get my voucher- or do you think this is cheating and unethical?

I work for Oxfam.... The shops do have vouchers for the following month early and we have been told that if customers ask for the following calender month we can give them out..... The minimum donation is one item of 1 m&s clothing, as someone said you can make lots of trips but the vouchers can only be used one per transaction (one per 35), so if you regularly shop there then its a great offer. Plus the constant donations to our shops can be nothing but good!!!

I have found second hand clothes so expensive at our Oxfam that it would be cheaper to buy new clothes in M & S.
NO to pasty tax We won!!!! Just shows that people power works! Don't be apathetic to your cause!

Thumbs up marks and spencer/oxfam

Marks and Spencer and Oxfam have a joint venture - if you take your unwanted M and S items to Oxfam, they will give you a 5 voucher for M and S, to spend on purchases over 35. Need to check your local Oxfam is signed up, but as the M and S website says that over 700 branches of Oxfam are involved, there should be one nearby.

I may be wrong but I had one of these vouchers and I think the M&S vouchers have to used by this Friday though (29th) - so be quick!
Ticket in a private car park in England/Wales?... DON'T PAY IT BUT DO NOT IGNORE IT- the advice changed in 2012/13!

CLICK on '>Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking>' end of the small blue 'Home>Forums>' link, top of the page, to see current threads.
Do NOT read older advice to ignore, unless it was in Scotland or NI.

The assistant in my local shop thought that the scheme is ongoing and there will be March vouchers - advised me to wait to take in more stuff.
Hope she is right.

Default Can't use it for food

Was going to do this to get an extra fiver off their already very good 30% discount on wine cases at the moment instore, but reading the small print you cannot use the voucher in the food department :rolleyes:

What a shame.

Default Not that useful

i donated a per una suit to Oxfam and got my voucher - then realised you need to spend 35 to get 5 off and it is only on beauty, clothes or home. as my local M&S is small, there is no home section to speak of really. i would have given the suit to Oxfam anyway but think the offer looks more appealing than it actually is - you still need to spend 30 in M&S!

Default Warm And Fuzzy!

Hi costingbunny! Did you forget to pick up your warm fuzzy feeling when you got your voucher? That Per Una suit (in the shop i work in) would have raised at least 20- which could help feed a child orphaned by aids for three and a half months......
