Focus DIY 20% discount off everything for a year for flood victims

Martin & team,

Just popped into Focus DIY in Swindon today & they had leaflets offering 20% off everything for any flood victims. I just filled out a form at customer services and showed them my proof or address (driving licence) & a piccie of my house under water that I had on my mobile phone & I’ve now got a card for 20% off until 31 January 2008 (excludes pet food, gift vouchers, conservatories, concessions). Better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick!

Regards:j

    MFI are also offering flood vicitims a discount, not sure how much or what kind of evidence they need. HTH
    .................:)....I'm smiling because I have no idea what's going on ...:)
  • Thanks for that! I live in Swindon too and my house was flooded. Although insurance should cover most things, I'm sure I'll find I need to get other things too and the discount will certainly help. Didn't know about this scheme till I read your post.
  • Focus in Stroud is also offering this deal - they only asked for my driving licence as proof of ID - didn't ask for any proof of flooding. They gave me a card there and then and it can be used until end of January 2008:T
    Nice to save.

    plus if you are over 60 you are also entitled to a extra 10% card to use on wed, thus a 30% discount, with your flood discount card, it might work
  • I work at focus (crap, but its ajob inbetween uni). You cannot get 30 since you cant use the cards with each other, adn the tills wont let you :confused: . Shame my store is closing, so many freinds made, so little time for the company.

    Focus in Gloucester on Eastern avenue is doing the same 20% discount until Jan 2008. You don't have to have been flooded just prove that you live in an area that was affected. I live in Tewkesbury but was not flooded myself but just showed my driving licence with my address on and got a card (staff knew I had not been flooded, I wasn't fibbing!)
