Products described “as new” and without scratches will be eligible for a voucher worth 50% of its original price.

This goes down to 40% for items that are “very good” – so minor scratches – or 30% for “well-used” goods with several scratches. 

The vouchers will have no expiry date to discourage shoppers from buying furniture that they don’t really need.

Shoppers are warned that they may be able to sell your items at a higher price than what your voucher would be worth through second-hand selling sites like eBay, Gumtree or Facebook selling pages.

Make sure you do your research
