If you have to return goods you have purchased online using gift vouchers, then in most instances we will credit your online shopping account. You may also return online orders to any John Lewis & Partners shop. If you have your receipt, we will refund you with cash, but if you don’t, your refund will be credited to a gift card. This doesn't affect your statutory rights.
Used a debit card or spent under £100 on a credit card? Try using your card's chargeback facility. Visa, Mastercard and American Express may return your money. There's no limit on how much you need to spend in order to make a claim (though on Mastercard, you must spend a minimum of £10) but you must claim within 120 days of something going wrong. But this is a customer service promise, not a legal obligation. See the Chargeback guide for how it works.
The Consumer Council for Water website also has a list of water company contacts – get in touch with it if you have any problems making arrangements with your water company. It's also worth noting that bottled water isn't recommended for making baby formula but if it has to be used, NHS Choices provides guidelines. Plus see our Cut your water bills guide for full cost-cutting help.

So if a retailer does go bust and I'm unlikely to get my money back, should I just throw my gift card/voucher away? No. Don't be too quick to chuck gift cards – administrators may have a change of heart. For example, when Comet went into administration in November 2012, the administrator Deloitte ended up allowing it to accept gift cards, after originally saying it couldn't.

I love the app Verydice to get free diapers, wipes, baby clothes, bottles/pacifiers, even carseats all that come from Amazon. You just have to save up your tickets. Shipping is free too. Use the code 2899035 if you’re interested to get you some free rolls to start off. I’ve already redeemed over 20 baby items, so I know it’s legit lol but I’ve been playing almost 2 years.

Parenting charity National Childbirth Trust (NCT) has a number of General resources for supporting dads, such as its free online booklet Dad’s View: Early days with your baby, which is written by dads for dads. The NCT website also has a range of useful info on all aspects of becoming a parent, from fathers and breastfeeding to birthing partner tips.
The first giftcard using a payments infrastructure was introduced by Neiman Marcus in late 1994,[6] though Blockbuster Entertainment was the first company to do so at a wide scale,[7] test-marketing them in 1995 and launching them around the country the next year. In the beginning, the Blockbuster giftcard replaced gift certificates that were being counterfeited with recently introduced color copiers and color printers. Blockbuster's first giftcard transactions were processed by what was then Nabanco of Sunrise, Florida. Nabanco was the developer of the first third-party platform for the processing of giftcards using existing payment infrastructure.
You can feed in almost anything in your wardrobe... apart from dresses with no buttons or zips on the front. It's not just about nursing tops and dresses. Go through your closet and hunt out anything that gives your baby easy access: tops and dresses with buttons, zips or wrap fronts. Keep an eye out for dungarees or off-the-shoulder 'Bardot' necklines. You can even feed through the armholes of some tops if they're large enough.
