    What’s this all about?

    There's a way to get a free £5 Marks & Spencer gift voucher. To do it all you need to is call up or go online and get a quote for Direct Line home insurance before 30 November.

    The advert has been all over the papers, but the key term is that you don't need to get the insurance to get the voucher.

    Warning: It's likely to be swamped, and possibly with so many people coming from the weekly e-mail this promotion may be pulled quickly.

    How to do it?

    You can either do it online or call up
    • On the phone: Call 0845 246 4019 and say you've got a code, "mspress" at the start of the call
    • Online: Get a quote online but ensure you enter the code "mspress" and the voucher will be posted to you within 30 days.
    If you get a quote online you won't see any info about the offer (this has been in newspapers) but we've been assured by Direct Line's press office that entering this code in the 'promotional code' box will qualify you for it.

    What else do you need to know?

    Quotes can be obtained up to 90 days in advance and you don't need to purchase the policy to get the voucher, just hit the 'Save Quote' button to exit the quote.

    Direct Line is doing this becasuse it says "you'll be happy with with our prices and service" yet it isn't automatically cheapest, so if you're looking for new home insurance check its price against my usual Cheap Home Insurance four step plan to compare the market.

    It's likely that you'll join its marketing distribution list by doing this, but you should be able to opt out easily if you choose to.

    It's full terms and conditions

    Full terms and conditions of the Direct Line:

    1. Participation in this offer is by obtaining a home insurance quote from Direct Line online or via telephone.
    2. This offer will close at 5pm on 30.11.08.
