Amazon.co.uk 15% off certain stock via kids wish list

First order on a "kids wish list" looks to allow 15% off certain goods.

The kids wish lists goods includes nintendo switches, lego so could be a good saving for some.

it's fiddly but i think you need to wait up to 24 hours for the wish list to become live. Also if i read correctly it can only be used once per kid so either put in a big order or have a lot of kids!

I got...

"There was a problem. The promotional code you entered cannot be applied to your purchase."

When I tried to order a Nintendo Switch through this offer the other day, not sure what the problem is as it was the first time I created a kids wish-list(as I have no children) and I still get the same error now days later.

Nope, maybe I'm ineligible because I think I got a voucher from an older promotion to setup a normal amazon wish-list a while back.

I had trouble getting the 15% discount code to work.
I received no email, it was supposed to apply automatically after first item was added to kids wish list and go live within 24 hours.

I contacted amazon via web chat and they confirmed to me that I would received the 15% discount after I have received the goods once I contact them

You need to set up to see what is available.
If you set up kids wish list it will bring you to a separate page (kids version of amazon?) and only certain items are there. No doorbell I imagine but do have collectors edition of lego, consols etc

Set up a kids wish list at the weekend. Didn’t get an email but I used the code at the checkout and it gave me 15% off. Thanks OP. Nice start to the Christmas shopping.
