$20 off (No Minimum Spend) @ Shopzero

10610
SZSORRY17

Following the pricing error from this deal, they offered a $20 apology voucher.

Code is generic with no minimum spend.

In order to work around the $150 minimum spend at checkout, follow the steps below:

  1. Add desired item into cart
  2. Go to the top of the page, click 'Shopping Cart' drop-down menu and then 'Checkout'
  3. Checkout as a guest and enter your personal information
  4. Click on 'To add or remove gift cards, click here' and enter code SZSORRY17
  5. Go back to cart and remove the code before repeating steps 2 and 3 - code should still be applied
  6. The payment option should say 'No Payment Information Required'
  7. Enjoy!

There aren't too many items for $20 but here are some examples:

      Right now they are hoping this site would collapse.

    Or SHOPATHOME for $30 off on orders over $300

    nope, minimum total is 150 spend with this code. it seems like an accidental to issue codes to push up sales, do you think?

    •  

      Yeah, I’m seeing a $150 minimum too

      They've offered the same $20 off on $150 before on other price errors. Can't really trust this site.

          I've updated the steps with clearer instructions, hopefully it works for you now.

          •  

            @bluggort: I'm guessing the no payment info required comes up only you if you purchase something exactly $20?

            • +1 vote

              @sub102: Oops, forgot to mention that. Yep, that's correct - only on items exactly $20.

              •  

                @bluggort: So it means this works only for items priced $20

    I dont want to use the three payment methods for $12.00 for a Memory Card - is there a work around that I can pay with PayPal?

  • +4 votes

    I keep getting these at step 2. not sure why
    Shopping Cart
    Subtotal must exceed minimum order amount
    Minimum order amount is $10.00

    • +2 votes

      Remove the coupon. Do the hack to click the cart dropdown and click the Checkout link. Go through the guest checkout again and look very carefully at the screen that displays the no payment message. I missed it the first few times.

    What happened to PayPal payment? Has it been disabled on their site? It was available this afternoon, Strange.

      they are dodgy as…

    •  

      Lol yes just realised this when trying to get the Lego set for $3. I paid with PayPal for the Gerni and the other Lego set I posted this Arvo. I guess the site is meant to be a Layby like site so PayPal doesn't really make sense.

  •  

    Worked for me, got the $20 LED bulb
    Subtotal $20.00
    Discount (SZSORRY17) -$20.00
    Shipping & Handling (Free Shipping) $0.00
    Grand Total $0.00

    Very curious to see what excuse they will invent now to cancel this order

    • +1 vote

      well, they can simply say you have not paid a cent to them lol

    • +1 vote

      They will say that you haven't spent the required minimum of $150!

      •  

        That sounds logical

    •  

      Did it attack you
      - attempted to breach our Purchase Terms and Conditions by actively circumventing our minimum cart value? :)

  • +1 vote

    not sure if they are going to honour this time, but better not spend extra on top of $20 if it works for you

  •  

    worked for me, lets see if its cancelled

  • +2 votes

    @OP: I think steps 5 and 6 should be inverted.

    5.Go back to cart and remove the code before repeating steps 2 and 3 - code should still be applied
    6. Repeat step 2 and the payment option should say 'No Payment Information Required'

      You're right, cheers! Fixed.

    Seems a bit unethical to be posting 'workarounds'

    Either way, they'll definitely cancel these orders too

        What makes this an unethical business?

          What makes this workaround unethical?

          This site is known for cancelling orders.
          Too many "pricing errors" and apology coupons with minimum spend(that is not mentioned anywhere in the apology email).

          "Unfortunately the Gasmate Meridian Area Heater (AH2063) is either not available or temporarily out of stock. We have cancelled this item off your order and will process a refund of $40.00, today.

          We are terribly sorry for the inconvenience that this may have caused you. Please also accept this $20 coupon code from us for your inconvenience."

          Also, very conveniently they removed Paypal from the payment methods

          Their RRPs are super jacked up. Check their Lego prices. Most are around double RRP.

          If we're being really honest, any of these 'buy now pay later' type deals are mostly to take advantage of people with low financial literacy. Not always, but mostly.

        What did they do wrong that they deserved to be called unethical?

        •  

          Looks like there are a few members who loved the apology $20 coupon with minimum $250 spend

  •  

    This has a limit of being used 2 times

  •  

    Easy - Thanks Op!

  •  

    Minimum order amount is $10.00

  •  

    Did it but I doubt they'll honour it.

    I wonder if stores will start to disallow referrals from ozbargain? Here we have a coupon clearly meant as an apology code for people who didn't get the gerni deal and it's been reposted to ozbargain. This is kind of why we can't have nice things

      There has already been more than 1000 clicks. if everyone bought a $20 item. That would be $20,000. I really doubt it they would honor it.My guess is they would only honor partly paid items

      • +2 votes

        Their T&Cs allow them to cancel for technical issues or with an example of pricing errors.I think the partial payments would still be cancelled due to the checkout loophole as they mention

        Minimum Order Value
        The minimum shopping cart grand total that is required to proceed to checkout is $150 after vouchers and discounts have been applied.

        I think we're outta luck on this one as the checkout loophole is a tech issue.

      That’s the reason they are called Shop Zero

  •  

    I accidentally found out a quicker way ( so you dont have to enter your guest information twice)

    1. Add desired item into cart
    2. Go to the top of the page, click 'Shopping Cart' drop-down menu and then 'Checkout'
    3. Apply coupon code "SZSORRY17"
    4. Repeat Step (2) to get an error of "Subtotal must exceed minimum order amount" (This step may not be needed)
    5. Cancel Coupon
    6. Repeat Step (2)
    7. Checkout as a guest and enter your personal information
    8. The payment option should say 'No Payment Information Required'

    Cheers
