Q4. How do I use my discount code?
Just enter the code in the appropriate box when you check out.  Or tick the relevant box when it’s in your account.  You’ll then see the new, discounted total in your order.  We’re sorry, but we won’t be able to replace any out-of-date or unused codes.

It’s important to note that you can only use codes if the total value of your bag is equal or higher than the value of the discount - before delivery costs.  Except where the discount specifies a minimum amount of purchase.

Q5. How can I be sure your products are authentic?
We guarantee that all of the discounted designer products we sell at BrandAlley:

    • are completely new
    • are 100% genuine - manufactured by the named brands, in keeping with their high quality standards.

The only thing that’s different is the discount.

Q6. Can I collate different orders?
We’re sorry, but because of the nature of our sales, we’re not in a position to gather different orders made at different times into one parcel and send you one package.  We have to treat all checked-out orders separately, even when you make different orders on the same day.

In the event that this isn't possible, they'll return your parcel to their depot. Three (3) delivery attempts will be made before your parcel is returned to our warehouse. Unfortunately, we’re unable to resend returned parcels.  In this case, we’ll refund you the full value of the goods, including delivery charges once your parcel has reached our warehouse.
