How to get tickets:

Click 'Book Tickets', choose your date and enter the code IDEAL15 online at
Manchester: Ideal Home Show

It's first-come, first-served (2,500 for each day) and from past experience these tickets will go quickly. The offer closes at 11.59pm on Sun 31 May or when all tickets go. Tickets will be emailed to you straightaway and you'll need to print them before you go.

Maximum two tickets per transaction and per household. Adult tickets usually cost £13.70 in advance including the booking fee, or £15 on the door. One child aged 15 or under can go free per adult - their tickets can be booked online or collected from the box office.

If you can't make Thu 4 Jun or Fri 5 Jun, or you miss out on the free tickets, there's a 2for1 code for any day of the Manchester event instead (it takes place from Thu 4 Jun to Sun 7 Jun).

MoneySavingExpert founder Martin Lewis will be appearing on stage at midday on Fri 5 Jun at the Ideal Super Theatre and we'll have a MoneySaving stall on all four days, where you can meet the team and get the latest MoneySaving tips.

What about the Ideal Home Show at Christmas?

We never know 100% if we're going to get them in advance, but we have featured ticket offers for the past few years. Normally offers for the Ideal Home Show at Christmas: London and Manchester shows come up in October.

What about the Ideal Home Show: London and Scotland?

Again, we never know 100% if we're going to get them in advance, but normally ticket offers for the Ideal Home Show: London come up in February and tickets for the Scotland show come up in April.

More info

There are no booking fees on the freebies and you don't need to enter any payment card info. If you're asked to add any card details, go back and re-enter the code - these tickets are totally free.

Tickets are for entry only on the day you select when you book - show guides and magazines need to be purchased separately. The show is on 10am-6pm daily. UK residents only.

The show will cover the following topics: interiors, home improvements, gardens, technology, fashion and beauty, food and housewares and shopping. You'll also be able to see a range of show homes if you need a bit of inspiration and there'll be more than 300 exhibitors.

You'll pay the cheaper advance rate (rather than the on-the-day price). Adult tickets are usually £13.70 each in advance (including a £1.70 booking fee), or £15 if you get them at the venue on the day.

So with the codes you can get two adult tickets to the show for £13.70, including fee.

As the event is coming up soon, make sure you select your tickets to be emailed for you to print off or select to collect them from the box office on the day, rather than posted. 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.

Section 75

Free protection for all shopping!

There's a little-known piece of legislation that turns any credit card into a financial self-defence superhero. 'Section 75' of the Consumer Credit Act means your plastic must protect anything you buy for more than £100 for free, so if there's a problem or the company goes bust, you can still get your money back.

And although Section 75 doesn't apply to debit cards, there is something else to fall back on if you've paid using a debit card, or used a credit card for a purchase under £100. Known as Chargeback, this is part of banks' and card companies' internal rules and not a legal requirement. Read full details of Section 75 or Chargeback, plus how to claim, in our guides.

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.
