Misleading Advertising: Greenpromocode.com breaks the UK Ad Rules for offering misleading promo codes on the greenpromocode.com website.
The ASA investigated the greenpromocode.com website in relation to promo codes that were claimed could be used on the Nutmeg website. The promo codes also stated that people had used the Nutmeg promo codes. The ASA considered that consumers would understand the promo codes had been successfully used on the Nutmeg website, but Nutmeg advised that the deals were not genuine and they had not provided greenpromocode.com any discounts to be used on their website. The ASA found that in the absence of any evidence that the deals were genuine offers, the website was misleading.
The CAP Compliance team instructed Greenpromocode.com to remove the Nutmeg promo codes that continue to appear on their website. As Greenpromocode.com didn’t respond we took the decision on 6 March 2018 to place them on this section of the ASA website. These details will remain in place until such a time as Greenpromocode.com has amended the Greenpromocode.com website to ensure compliance with the CAP Code.
