    It's been all over the internet the past 2 days.

    It's legit as far as I've heard, dunno if threshers were counting on internet wildfire though, you'd think they'd be set to lose alot of money...

    Haven't used it though, as Threshers can't compete with Tesco :D

    no, it works, I just did it.

    However, Threshers are a good bit dearer than ASDA so look into what you are going to buy first. For me it made sense though

    e.g. Sangre del torres 750ml


    ASDA £5.98

    Thresher £6.99

    Thresher 3 for 2 offer equivalent price £4.66

    Thresher 40% voucher price £4.19

    My better half works part time at Threshers.

    When they do the buy 2 get 1 bottle free offers they put the prices up so they don't lose out on much.

    They are also awful to work for and have no respect for there staff or management. Some stores are being franchised which is a sign that they are slowly going down the pan.

    I give them 2 years until they are gone, unless they go for the bargain booze approach by selling things cheaper in large quantities.

    I work with one of threshers partners, and was emailed a similar but not Identical coupon for the same period. So it is Genuine.

    It was featured on the BBC news this lunchtime. Apparently Threshers never intended the vouchers for use by the general public, they were only meant for a very small and select audience. But they have said that they will honour any of them that are used. The news said that they will probably still make a profit even with the 40% discount due to their mark-ups.

    Lots of big companies offer out franchise opportunities, don't see why it would be a sign that their going under.

    but is it more than 40% cheaper once you've taken the discount off? Then it's worth it :p

    No biggie...Cleverish marketing.

    33% off in most places with 3 for 2 or the like..Add the fact they are more expensive than most places to start with & it doesn't look quite so appealing.

    Check prices with Tesco and Sainsburys first, both have got 25% off on atm, so some items may be cheaper. Thanks for the coupon from threshers though, will have to check it out.
