2 days left

From Wed 16 - Sun 27 Apr, go online to Laura Ashley* or to your nearest store and you'll find up to 40% off all home furnishings and 50% off all wallpaper. Delivery's £4.50 or collect in-store for free.

It's worthing noting that the home sale is up to 40% off, meaning all home furnishings will be reduced but not necessarily by the full 40%. However, all wallpaper has the full 50% off.

We'll update you here with some examples of bargains once the sale has started.

Section 75 Free protection for all shopping!

There's a secret phrase that turns any credit card into a financial self-defence superhero. "Section 75" laws means your plastic must protect anything you buy over £100 for free, so if there's a problem or the company goes bust you can still get your money back.

Although Section 75 doesn't apply to debit cards there is something else to fall back on if you paid on a Visa debit or electron card, or Visa credit card under £100 (otherwise go for Section 75). Known as Visa Chargeback, this is part of Visa's internal rules and not a legal requirement. Full details of Section 75, chargeback and how to claim in the Section 75 Refunds guide.

If a link has a * by it, that means it is an affiliated link and therefore it helps MoneySavingExpert stay free to use, as it is tracked to us. If you go through it, it can sometimes result in a payment to the site.

You shouldn't notice any difference and the link will never negatively impact the product. Plus the editorial line (the things we write) is NEVER impacted by these links. We aim to look at all available products. If it isn't possible to get an affiliate link for the top deal, it is still included in exactly the same way, just with a non-paying link.
