    M&S card free 50 hassle 8th Oct 16 at 9:19 AM
    After seeing the link on good old MSE wife and I applied for an M&S credit card each to take advantage of the 25 voucher.

    Here we are couple of weeks later, both have the cards, both activated, both spent a couple to test them and the vouchers arrived by email.

    I printed mine off wife had hers on smart phone email. The conditions on the voucher are ok, nothing restrictive. Off we head to shop yesterday evening as they have the dine in For 10 deal and the 3 for 10 on various ready meals.

    Filled a basket each and headed for the till. Wife went first and voucher couldn't be accepted by the till. Operator read conditions, agreed it should work and called supervisor. Same thing from her. They laid away transaction and scanned my basket. Same thing happened.

    We were taken to customer service desk while they tried to resolve it, luckily no one had queued behind us or I would have been too embarrassed to continue and just offered full payment.

    After phoning M&S bank and someone who had same problem a couple of weeks age they ended up putting it through till as a 25 gift voucher or something.

    Interesting from a MSE point of view, my till reciept was 40+ something, then the deductions for the deals took it down to 28, then the voucher down to 3. So all in all quite happy. I'd have been very happy if the voucher code had worked at the till, but hey ho.

    Wife's basket was similar 43, down to 30 less the voucher so another great saving.

    Chinese M&S meals for 2 last night, I'm going to sample the pizza tonight.

    Thanks to whoever highlighted the voucher offer !!

    My son had exactly the same problem at the weekend. Such a shame that M&S Bank do not communicate with the M&S stores when they offer this type of incentive.

    My husband applied at the same time as my son and activated his M&S Credit Card around the same time. However, no voucher has been forthcoming for him. Does anyone know whether that could be because he already had an M&S credit card on my account?

    They have to put the voucher code in manually before they press pay.

    The online code works as a promotional code.

    You may even find that they both work!
