Ways to Pay

Discounts, Promotions and Vouchers

Unfortunately we cannot accept all our discount codes online currently. To use your discount code you can either visit the store to purchase the item, or to guarantee it will be available in store – you can purchase online at full price for collection to your chosen store and the colleague in store will refund the discount to you when you collect the item.

The following discounts can only be used in store:

  • Blue light / NHS / Armed forces discount
  • British Cycling*
  • Cycling UK
  • Love2shop
  • One4all
  • Colleague discount

Unfortunately, we do not accept the following discounts online or in store:

  • Bonus Bond
  • Capital Bond
  • Red Letter Day
  • Compliment Vouchers (but we do accept Compliments Mastercard gift cards in store)

Click on your basket, and then click 'Enter Promo Code'. Pop in the code and click Apply. If the code is valid, the discount will show in your basket.

Unfortunately we don't offer student discounts online or in store.

Please contact your internal Human Resources team; they'll be able to confirm if Halfords has a scheme with your employer. Discounts can only be used in store and not online.

Voucher codes can only be used online but can’t be redeemed in store. In the basket, click on the link titled 'Add Voucher Code' and enter the code before clicking 'Apply Code' to deduct the discount. The item must match the category for the specific code. Voucher codes cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer or on a bundle deal.

First, check the dates to ensure that the code's valid. If it's within the dates and it's still not working, please contact us and we'll try and sort it out for you.

Get in touch with us, and have the voucher code and your order reference number handy. A member of our Customer Services team will take a look and get back to you.

There are occasions when further Ts&Cs apply that may prevent British Cycling and Cycling UK being used in conjunction with other offers, such as Buy One Get One Free or 3 for 2, please see below. However, this does mean that, unless stated otherwise, British Cycling and Cycling UK can normally be used with everyday promotional offers such as automatic Price Matches.

For example, if we had ‘Half Price on Kids Bikes’ running, the discount could normally be used with that, as it’s an offer, not a voucher – the only exception would be if the T&C’s of that particular offer specifically excluded it from being used with other offers; see below for more information.

Unfortunately, we do not accept Tesco Clubcard vouchers as a method of payment in either our retail or Autocentre stores.

Yes, you can! We offer Nectar points on specific purchases.

  • The Retailer's price includes delivery but doesn't include any personal/membership discounts
  • The Retailer is based in the UK and sells directly to customers
  • The competitor's item must be in stock for home delivery, or for collection at a store within a 30 mile radius at the time of match.
  • We will match in store if our online price is lower than our store price. This applies to Click & Collect orders only, not home / work delivery.

Payment Scurity

Pre-authorisation is the practice within the banking industry of authorising electronic transactions made with a debit or credit card. This balance is held as unavailable, either until the merchant confirms the transaction or is no longer needed. The pre-authorisation is not a charge and no funds have been debited from your account. The funds will not be taken from your method of payment until your order has been dispatched.

3D Secure is an additonal security measure when using your card online.

Gift Cards

Follow the below link and enter your gift card number (which is located on the back of your gift card).

Click here to check your gift card balance.

Yes they do - the gift card expires after 24 months. If it hasn't been used during this time, the balance will be gone!

While we do our absolute best to remain competitive in the market, sometimes it is possible that another retailer sells the same item slightly cheaper. In order to offer you the best value possible, we're happy to offer a Price Matching service so you can get the lowest price.

If you find a cheaper price online or in-store we'll match it, and if you find it after you've purchased from us we'll refund the difference within 7 days of purchase. Please note that we do price match Amazon when they are selling the product directly but we don't price match Amazon Marketplace sellers.

Simply take a print out of the competitor's online price into any Halfords store ensuring the date and price are shown, or show our colleagues the price on your smartphone, and we will match the competitor price if within policy. The item must be in stock at their nearest store, within a 30 mile radius, and not marked as a clearance item.

We can also price match items for home delivery if you contact Customer Support, providing the order number and link for the price you wish to match; we can either adjust the price on the item before the payment is taken, or refund the difference if the payment has already been taken. In both cases, we can match the price either at the time that the order was placed or up to 7 days from receiving the order.

If you've bought something from us and the price has been reduced within seven days of the purchase date, you can return the item to your local store for a refund of the difference.
