22/10 must be the final day of voucher use as I've got that date printed on mine from Tuesday night.

great offer to say the least, saved over 100 euro in the past few weeks and
on stuff we'd be buying anyway and for once none of it went towards beer

I used vouchers today but didn't get any new ones, just as well as don't usually shop in dunnes but felt compelled to go there and spend, spend, spend! great offer, you would wonder how they made money from this?

It's over now. I don't usually shop in dunnes either but it was great for getting nappies and detergent which were already on offer.

Of course they made money on this. Think about it. Yourself and myself and dozens of others who 'never usually go into Dunnes unless there's a reason' went in with our €10 off €50 vouchers, with the best intention to spend €50.00 and give dunnes €40.00. BUt somehow there was always €60-70 in my trolley (there's sorcery in that store to make me lose my mental arithmetic facilities). And once we got another €10 off €50 voucher, we did it all over again the following week. And there are plenty of others who spent more. It makes excellent business sense to shift stock quickly out of the store. I was happy to play along as I hope to only need bread, milk and some fresh meat & veg til Xmas now that the cupboards are nicely stocked. I have to say that Dunnes have come up trumps with good offers too on which to spend the money on. It has really made Tesco stand out as robbin' b*st*rds they are too, but then that's just my opinion.

The dunnes offers for the last month or two were really good. 1st used my clubcard spend 40 and get 8 euro off... stocked up on tolieteries, ownbrand pasta, and then the mouthwash I use was on a half price promotion so stocked up on them (ive about 10 month supply). on that shop I got the 5 euro voucher and stocked on up shampoos, and perishables that again were on special offers. went in today to do another weekly shop with the last 5 euro one, the place was mad never saw it so busy. again stocked up on own brand and anything I use that was on special offer

Was it just for January that Dunnes was doing this again? Does anyone know if it's continuing into February?
