Christmas Special! GZG special offers

Not a sale as such but time for GZG's usual Christmas special offer with free goody bags if you order over a certain amount...

Our 2017 Christmas Specials are NOW ON as of 12:00 NOON today, TUESDAY 28th NOVEMBER, and they will run until MIDNIGHT (2400 Hours) UK time on FRIDAY 22nd December. Our Christmas offers have been extremely popular over many years now, so this year I'm keeping it pretty much the same again - including the simplified qualifying criteria for the offers that worked very well the last couple of years, just using the GRAND TOTAL VALUE of your order - the actual amount you pay - rather than getting all complicated about sub-total values, VAT-exclusive prices and stuff….. so once again, ALL ORDERS WITH A GRAND TOTAL VALUE (INCLUDING SHIPPING AND VAT WHERE APPLICABLE) of 30 GBP or more will qualify for both parts of the special deal:

1) All qualifying orders will get a FREE CHRISTMAS GOODIE BAG of extra minis and stuff - how much free stuff you get depends on the size of your order, and I'll tailor most of the contents to fit the kind of items you are ordering (plus maybe the occasional sample that might tempt you into other ranges and scales...). What goes in the bag is OUR choice, so no being cheeky and asking for specific things please - but those of you who have had our previous Xmas freebies over the years will know that you get a very generous selection of items that you can actually use for your armies/fleets - and usually much more stuff than you'd get from a simple discount offer!
Sometimes I may put in the odd special or unreleased item too, so you never know what you might get… that's part of the fun of a gift!

2) In addition to the Free Stuff with your order, all qualifying customers will also get a VOUCHER that you can use to get a generous DISCOUNT off a further order placed after Christmas - so you can get all your pre-Xmas stuff AND free goodies now, and then use the voucher up when you have some gift money from all those relatives who have absolutely NO idea what to buy for you!

This year, the vouchers will be valid for the whole of JANUARY 2018 - so the voucher codes will become "live" on the store on Monday the 1st of January 2018, and any un-used ones will expire at Midnight (UK time) on Wednesday the 31st January 2018. Please note that this is a change from previous years - normally the vouchers are valid for January AND February, but this time I will be having a much busier March than usual (more news about that later) and I know that I won't be able to cope with the usual deluge of last-minute orders at the end of February - so this time I'm shifting the voucher expiry forward by a month so that I have time in Feb to deal with all the orders that will come in right at the end of January! Please don't forget this change, it should still give you plenty of time to spend your Christmas present money…..

The value of the voucher you will receive varies according to the size of your pre-Xmas order - if your total order value is from 30 GBP to 100 GBP then you'll get a voucher for 10% discount; any orders with a total value of OVER 100 GBP will get a whopping 20% discount voucher!
Each voucher carries a unique code number that allows you to use it for online orders, of course - as usual, I will post the full instructions for redeeming the vouchers on the store before they become live at the start of January.


Christmas dispatch times and ordering dates, and Christmas/New Year break:
Throughout the pre- and post-Christmas period, I will be trying to keep as much up to date with order dispatches as possible - but please understand that things can get VERY busy and some orders may well take a few days longer than normal to be shipped out. If there are any serious delays then I will try to let you know where possible.
Obviously we are all at the mercy of the postal services as to delivery times - but we would strongly recommend that international orders (especially for Australia, NZ etc) are placed no later than the first week of December if you want any real hope of them arriving before Christmas. With some larger orders it is possible to ship them via parcel courier (UPS etc) rather than by airmail, the couriers are faster and with much better online tracking - if you want me to do this, or just want more details on this shipping option, please ask when you place the order.
I will continue to dispatch orders up to Friday 22nd of December - after that date we will be CLOSED for the Christmas/New Year break, re-opening on Tuesday 2nd January 2018. The online webstore will remain "open" throughout the Christmas period so you can still place orders, but no orders will be processed and dispatched until after the 2nd of January.
Thanks to you all for your support and valued custom through 2017 - it's been a much better year all round than 2016 was, and I hope we can tempt you with even more new and exciting things in 2018!
Wishing you all a great Christmas (or whatever other seasonal festival you choose to celebrate around this time of year) and a safe, happy and gaming-filled New Year!
All the best,
Jon (GZG),  28th Nov 2017.
