Elle £20 Kurt Geiger gift card





Elle magazine are giving readers a free £20 Kurt Geiger gift card in the December issue. I picked up my copy on Monday and couldn’t wait to spend it! A couple of years ago Elle did the same and gave a £20 gift card for Kurt Geiger but I never ended up using it. I didn’t really want to use it on a pair of shoes, so the ‘Everything But The Dress’ accessories range seemed a perfect way to spend it. I had a look at what they had to offer and chose the ‘Éclair’ small pouch at £20. I’d seen this pattern on some other KG products in a magazine, and really liked the ‘inky’ look to it. The standard P&P is £4, so including using the gift card, I only paid for the P&P. I ordered it on Monday night and got it yesterday which I’m really chuffed about! It came in a cute gold giffy bag, which I thought was an unusual but kind of cool way of packaging things. It’s only small and I’ll probably only use it as a coin purse on a night out, when you only need something for money, ID and bank cards. I definitely wouldn’t have paid £20 for it, the quality of the actually product is good, just personally I wouldn’t use it enough to pay £20 for it!

Just a quick mention to new followers; thankyou! It means a lot when people check out my blog! I’m only starting but I feel a big rush of achievement when I sign in to see new followers and new page views. Also, massive thanks to Zoe for mentioning me on Twitter! I check Zoe’s blog out all the time, and I’m really chuffed she mentioned me on Twitter! She also said that she loved my pictures! Thanks guys!

Have you guys got your gift card? What are you going to buy with it?

  5. Have you activated your giftcard? You have to activate it first at >> http://www.kurtgeiger.com/elle/ then you can add it when you go to the check out. You kinda have to go the long way round, like you have to add the code on the back and other details to activate it, then you have to enter the code again at the checkout, like it doesn't have your card saved. Does that make sense? I hope this helps you! Let me know how you get on! :) xx

  6. Yeah, I activated it the other day :S Its still not working. :( I put in the gift card code, clicked check balance, then it tells me there is £20 on the card. Then...how do I apply it to the total? Should I have a promotion code as well?

  7. Have you got to the stage of going to the checkout? If your card is activated and it's showing it has £20, then I'm sure it should work ok. You add the giftcard when you get to the 'payment' section of the checkout process, where it wants your bank card details etc. There's a bit at the top of the page asking if you have a KG or Elle giftcard, and space to enter the code. The just click on 'apply giftcard'. From what I can remember from when I got my purse, it shows the total as the total all together, if that makes sense. Like my purse was £20 and the P&P was £4, so I only paid £40, but it showed the total as £24, but I only paid £4 of that. You don't need a promotion code, well I didn't have one, just the code from my giftcard! Mega long reply, haha, let me know how you get on! xx
