Payment types

We take all sorts of cards and payment methods, including these fellas…




Yep, you can now use your plastic or cardboard gift card or voucher online, just as long as…

  • your card hasn’t expired
  • it has a 4-digit security pin
  • the card number starts with 10000

If your gift card doesn't have a 4-digit pin, you can’t use it online but you can still use it in-store.

If the date has been and gone then we can’t replace it for you (sorry). That’s why we urge anyone who receives a card to double-check the expiry date on the back.

Our gift cards are usually valid for 3 years. So there should be plenty of time to decide what you fancy.

Please try to pay again using a different card if you have one.
