I recently received an email from East Midlands Trains offering me a £10 voucher off any future train trip with them. I received this because I do, once or twice a year, take the train up to Sheffield to see family. East Midlands Trains was clearly missing me ….
(East Midlands Trains runs from London St Pancras to Sheffield, but also covers Nottingham, Doncaster and Chesterfield amongst other places.)
I didn’t think much else about it, until it was pointed out to me that ANYONE can claim one of these £10 vouchers. All you need to do is visit this website. You will receive an East Midlands Trains promotional code immediately.
Looking at the terms and conditions, this East Midlands Trains discount code is meant to be restricted to people who received the original email. However, anyone who completes this form will receive a voucher.
The terms and conditions are OK:
You must book by May 31st
You cannot use it for First or Standard Class Anytime tickets or London Day Out tickets
Your trip must include East Midlands Trains for all or part of the journey
The voucher CAN be mixed with Railcard bookings
The obvious thing to do here is to book a return trip as two single journeys, so you would save £20 on a return.
Note that East Midlands Trains serves Luton Airport Parkway so this is a great way to get to Luton Airport cheaply.
