    Paying Debenhams Plus with Credit Card

    Paying Debenhams Plus with Credit Card 8th Sep 17 at 3:13 PM
    Does anyone know if I'd be covered by section 75 if purchasing from Debenhams Plus? Never used them before but have seen the CCTV kit that I want to buy and with it being well over 100, I'd like the extra purchase protection, but unsure if this would come under third party selling and therefore not covered?

    Thanks in advance.

    The info on their website says"Buy it Direct work with Debenhams to provide their customers with an extended range of products available exclusively on-line. Buy it Direct are a specialist retailer of a wide range of electrical goods, IT equipment, and kitchen appliances enabling Debenhams to offer their customers top brands from all those categories at great prices, with the levels of service expected from the Debenhams brand.
    When you purchase from Debenhams Plus, Buy it Direct will process the payment and deliver your order within the timescales provided. Therefore the terms and conditions of your purchase will be the Buy it Direct Terms and Conditions, which have been agreed with and aligned to Debenhams own Terms & Conditions. Please take time to check these Terms and Conditions before making your purchase."

    At the risk of asking the obvious question (in light of the company's name), can you not just buy it direct from Buy It Direct? As mentioned above, they're a specialist retailer in their own right, so it's not clear to me what Debenhams are adding, other than the potential to affect s75 rights....

    I'm only guessing here, but I'd say no. It's probably similar to PayPal etc. Debenhams are generally pretty good though with returns. You could always try a different credit card (although it won't give you the 10% off welcome bonus), or simply ask them.
    If you do use a credit card, remember to register it with Quidco for your instore cashback.
    Good luck

    Thank you for your replies, it seems that you can't buy direct with buy it direct! They own laptops direct etc, so I decided against Debenhams Plus in the end and went into a Maplins store. I didn't know that one had opened so it was quite fortuitous.
