PSA fines company £750,000 over misleading discount service that charged people without consent

31 March 2021

Tribunal found three breaches proven after receiving 112 complaints about the service

This company charged people £4.50 a month for its ‘Voucher Promotions’ service and used logos of well-known brands in its promotions – including Zara, Currys, PC World and Homebase. But the codes sent to consumers were available freely online and weren’t sent every month as advertised.

The Tribunal found three breaches proven, including that the service was misleading and had charged consumers without their consent.

The Tribunal banned the provider from the market for five years and fined it £750,000.
