Personal Choices FAQ’s
Do I get both discounts if I wish to use a promotional code?
As a VIB Club Member, you'll always receive 25% off your chosen 'Personal Choice' products. If you wish to use a promotional code, you will receive this discount on any other products in your basket. A promotional code will not be applied to your Personal Choice products if the discount is less than 25%. If the discount is greater - you will of course receive the greater of the two.
