It is your responsibility to check that your order is accurate before submitting it to us.
All prices on this website are in pounds sterling and include VAT unless expressly stated otherwise. We take care to ensure that all pricing information on our website is accurate but occasionally there may be an error. We verify pricing at our dispatch centre. If the correct price is lower than that on the website at the time you place your order, we will charge you the lower price.

Promotional codes cannot be used in conjunction with any other voucher or discount code. Promotional codes cannot be used on discounted items. Promotional codes cannot be used on purchases of any codeine based products, NHS or private prescriptions, infant formula milk, nappies, Alli, Deals of the Week, Deals of the Month, Fragrances of the Week, Fragrance of the Month, Gift of the Month, Buy More Save More products and products featured within BOGSHP, BOGOF, 3 for 2 promotions, or any offer or product which we deem inappropriate for discount.
Promotional codes cannot be used in conjunction with delivery promotions, i.e. free standard delivery on orders of £35 or over. By choosing to add a discount code on such an order, this then voids the free delivery discount and applies the discount code instead.
It is the customer’s responsibility to decide which discount is most beneficial before applying any discount code. No cash alternatives are available. If you are using a threshold promotional code that takes off a percentage or amount from your order, you will be charged full price if the total goes below this threshold in the case of a cancelled item or order.
