Tip on getting lots of discount @ Bear & Duck ($10 off $25, $20 off $50 , $30 off $75, etc)

Posted By: Debz, posted 2007/10/24 03:37
I saw the codes that fairybelle posted for bear and duck, and tried a little expiriment which I think should work to save you some money there.

If you put a $25 gift voucher in your basket, you can then add one of the $10 discount vouchers below to make this a cost of $15. Even if you can only use the discount code once per account, there are a few working at the minute: alchemist, decadence, sweetorsavoury, so you should be able to carry out this process more than once, doing each order in a seperate transaction.

I haven't completed this yet as I don't need to buy anything. Does it work - please confirm below. Technically, this means you can get $10 off a $25 purchase, $20 off a $50 purchase, $30 off a $75 purchase, etc.

Then you can use the gift vouchers you have purchased to buy things, or even give them as gifts for Christmas. No-one needs to know you have paid less for them than they state!

I don't know if this is a loophole or not, so if you're interested, I'd say do it soon, as Bear & Duck could possibly update thier site so we cannot get this any more.

    Awesome find their Debz :)
    I am surprised that they allow discount codes on the gift vouchers

    I think this will not last for long at all
  • jayne2007/10/24 18:52:33
    Nice one Debz! Giving someone a $25 gift voucher for Christmas wouldn't be too shabby!! (Never mind that it cost you $15 :whistling:)
  • fairybelle2007/10/24 19:24:32
    yeah thats a nice idea hehe
  • fairybelle2007/10/24 19:25:18
    wait can you buy a $50 for $30 then use the $10 ontop of that...??? to make $60.00
  • mouldgirl2007/10/24 19:33:05
    So happy to find this in the forum today
    you buy a $50 voucher - you can only get $10 off
    you buy 2 x $25 then you will get $50 for $30 but you could buy up to $60 worth of stuff using the $50 and the final $10 voucher. So you get $60 worth of stuff and pay $30
    That right?
    Thanx thanx thanx Debz
  • mouldgirl2007/10/24 19:33:58
    Debz hope your deal reaches blazing temp :)
  • jayne2007/10/24 19:50:24
    Yes - fairy and mouldy - you're right!! That's even better! SO you could get $60 worth for $30 !!!
  • jayne2007/10/24 19:53:57
    Plus I think they have expired the decadence code.
  • mouldgirl2007/10/24 19:57:11
    Shame about the other code :( $50 for $30 is great
  • brooke2007/10/24 20:38:38
    that's actually a really clever idea!

    thanks for the tip :)
  • bronwyncollier2007/10/24 20:50:55

  • elegantegotist2007/10/24 23:11:40
    So what you should do is buy a $25 voucher using ALCHEMIST, another $25 voucher using SWEETANDSAVOURY and then wait until next month when they bring out a new $10 voucher and use the gift vouchers and the new $10 voucher together on a $60 item.

    Or give them to your hubby's email address or something, and he could use them on his account :whistling:
  • elegantegotist2007/10/25 08:45:58
    Ooh good idea !
  • fairybelle2007/10/25 10:10:36
    like your thinking Debz
  • elegantegotist2007/10/25 10:48:53
    Hey I just checked the website and they have this clause that states that Gift vouchers cannot be combined with promotional vouchers for a purchase.

    Did it say that before? Well, it's still working...
  • elegantegotist2007/10/25 18:34:52
    No I mean you can't use a gift voucher with a promo voucher to buy something. You can only use a promo voucher to buy a gift voucher.
  • jayne2007/10/25 18:36:25
    Oh I see - for the actual purchase later on...
  • elegantegotist2007/10/25 18:40:47
    Yeppers :)
  • fairybelle2007/10/25 18:47:10
    thats still good $30 for $50 worth of vouchers !
    I wanted the boot boxes so i am only paying $30 INSTEAD of $50 so im happy about that..
  • Keeys2007/10/26 18:17:48

    This sort of feedback will win you lots of brownie points keeys. Am sure everyone who participates around here appreciates it.
  • Keeys2007/10/27 17:12:14
    thanks but didn't do it for brownie points, I said it cause its true. I've only been a member for just over a month but I've so far had free items, extremly cheap items $3 BBQ untensil for example, to bargin items huge savings due to the people on buckscoop sharing their finds, not to mention the $17 cashback from just shopping as I would usually do and knowing that when I shop on ebay I'm helping others.

    Just wish I'd found buckscoop 11mths earlier lol :D
  • nod2007/10/27 19:21:58
    Thanks Keeys :flowers:
  • nod2007/10/29 19:20:40
    Now expired as all the vouchers do not work.
    For all those that benefited from this tip I think you should send a big thank you to Bear and Duck. They did not have to honour the purchases but in good faith they have.
    :)
