Help using evouchers and list of exclusions

Alcohol exclusions are to ensure that your order complies with recent government legislation  regarding the sale of alcohol.

In order to redeem a promotional coupon against an order, your basket must meet the required spend stated on the coupon. Please be aware that excluded items are not included in this value threshold. For example, for a £10 off a £50 shop, your shopping must include £50 worth of groceries that do not fall under any of the excluded categories listed below.

The list of excluded goods are as follows:

• Spirits
• Liqueur
• Wine when on any buy 6 save 25% promotion
• In Scotland, all alcohol is excluded from qualifying spend. Alcohol Minimum Unit Pricing applies.
• Infant formula baby milk products
• Tobacco and related products
• Gift vouchers
• Savings or postage stamps
• Mobile phone vouchers, phone cards or charity products
• Travel money
