Free Ideal Home Tickets logo2for1 Ideal Home Show Christmas ticketsEnter code to get tickets for EventCity or Earls Court shows

London and Manchester

If you weren’t lucky enough to nab a pair of the 15,000 free tickets we mentioned earlier this month, we've the next best thing. Use the code EXP241 to get 2for1 adult tickets to the Manchester: Ideal Home Show at Christmas (14 -16 Nov) or the London: Ideal Home Show at Christmas (19-23 Nov).  You must book by 11.59pm on Sun 26 Oct.

You’ll pay the cheaper advanced rate for this 2for1 deal plus there’s a £1.70 booking fee per transaction – which includes delivery. So with the code you can get two adult tickets in London on a weekday for £13.70 incl fee (usually £25.70 for a pair), or on Sat/Sun for £15.70 incl fee (usually £29.70 for a pair). For the Manchester show, you will pay £13.70 incl fee for all days (usually £25.70 for a pair).

Two children aged 15 and under can go free per adult - their tickets can be booked online or collected from the box office on the day.

How to get your tickets

Follow the relevant link above and click on the 'book tickets' tab and enter the code first before you pick the date. Make sure you then select the ticket option '2for1 on the advanced price'. Tickets can be sent within five days to your email for you to print off or you can opt to get them posted.

You can also book over the phone by calling 0844 209 7330 and mentioning the code, but it will cost you 6p per minute plus network charges.

Going to the London show and want to ice skate? 

There'll also be an ice skating rink at the London event. If you want to skate, it works out slightly cheaper to use the Evening Standard code ESS14, which gives 2for1 entry and one free skating ticket (norm £5 adult, £3.50 kids). The price is based on the on-the-door cost, so it only works out better if an adult wants to skate. This code is valid until 11.59pm on Thu 6 Nov.

You must present your voucher at the ice rink box office on arrival to redeem your free skate and book a slot. The slots are subject to availability, so are not guaranteed.

MSE Anna says:

The festive-themed shows have hundreds of exhibitors and will include furniture, gifts, decor, gadgets, food and drink, home improvements, fashion and beauty. There are also celebrities including a designer and chef, plus industry experts and demonstrations.

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.
