Even the most reliable products and brands can develop structural defects.

As your furniture gets older there's a higher likelihood that it could develop a structural defect. Furniture Insurance provides protection for up to 3 years, giving you the peace of mind that you wouldn't need to pay for repair or replacement if your product developed a fault within this time.

The cover for structural defects starts on the expiry of the manufacturer’s warranty period.

The policy also covers you for accidental damage including staining, rips, tears & burns from the day your furniture is despatched. The cover excludes some situations for example; not taking care of your item, wilful abuse or misuse and wear and tear.

No, Furniture Insurance will continue after you have had a repair. The cover only ends if a replacement product is provided.

If your item is replaced then the Insurance will end and you will be given the option to purchase a new furniture policy for your replacement product. Please note, if you've bought insurance to cover a set, such as a three-piece suite for example, the cover will continue for any items which haven't been replaced.

The process is very straightforward. One call to our claims administrator TWG and they will arrange to repair your product. Call-out, parts and labour charges are all covered and there are no forms to fill in. It couldn't be simpler!

You must report all claims to TWG within 28 days.

The benefits offered under Furniture Insurance are in addition to your legal rights under the Consumer Rights Act 2015. Under this Act, if the product you purchase is subsequently found to be defective then you will be entitled to a remedy such as a repair, a replacement or a refund. This legal right lasts for up to 6 years (5 years in Scotland). If the product proves defective in the first 30 days after purchase then you may reject the goods and request a full refund. Thereafter, you will be entitled to a repair or replacement but if those remedies are not possible then you can claim a full, or partial, refund depending on the age of the goods. Further information on your rights can be obtained from the Citizens Advice Consumer Helpline 03454 040506.

You must contact Shop Direct Home Shopping as structural defects within the manufacturer’s warranty are not covered by this insurance.

If the three-piece suite is no longer available or cannot be sourced, we would replace the whole suite (as long as you have insured the whole suite).

If you cancel your policy within 45 days of taking out the cover you'll receive a full refund of your premiums. If you cancel your policy after 45 days you will receive a pro rata refund based on the number of unexpired months remaining.

What is Buy Now Pay Later?
Buy Now Pay Later is an interest bearing option that allows you to delay payments on your purchases for up to 12 months. The delayed payment period starts from the date of order (including pre-ordered items and those not ready for immediate dispatch).

You can choose:
A delayed payment period of 12 months and then a repayment period of 104 weeks when you spend £50 or more.
A delayed payment period of 12 months and then a repayment period of 156 weeks when you spend £99 or more.

How interest is calculated?
Interest will be charged for the delayed payment period and the chosen repayment period.

Interest is calculated and compounded daily at a typical rate of 44.9% per annum for the delayed payment period and repayment period and is charged to your account at date of order as a lump sum. This calculation factors in the planned payments that are requested during the repayment period. Your interest rate is personal to you and will be detailed in checkout.

How to avoid paying interest?
You can avoid paying all interest for both periods by paying the cash price before the end of the delayed payment period. This can be done in one full payment or multiple partial payments.

Making partial payments may result in a portion of the lump sum of compound interest being refunded at the end of the delayed payment period.

Remember if you choose not to pay the full cash price before the end of the delayed payment period any outstanding balance plus the lump sum of compound interest applied at the date of order will become payable.

How do I make a Buy Now Pay Later payment?
To make a full or partial payment simply log into My Account, choose "Make a payment", select "Pay Buy Now Pay Later" and allocate your payment to the specific item(s) you wish to pay off. Alternatively, you can call us.

What happens after the delayed payment period?
If you have not made any payments towards your Buy Now Pay Later, the outstanding balance plus the lump sum of compound interest will be payable across your chosen repayment period. This will now be included in your account minimum payment request each month.

If you have made partial payments, but not cleared the full cash price before the end of the delayed payment period, the outstanding balance plus a reduced lump sum of compound interest will become payable. The repayment amount agreed for the repayment period will remain the same, meaning the repayment period may be shorter than originally agreed.
If you have paid the cash price in full before the end of the delayed payment period, you will not pay any interest.

What is excluded from Buy Now Pay Later?
The costs for delivery, installation services and any warranty and insurance products cannot be placed on Buy Now Pay Later. Buy Now Pay Later availability is subject to your credit and account status.

Do I still have to pay my minimum payment?
Yes, allocating payments to Buy Now Pay Later will not cover the minimum payment for your Littlewoods account. If you have a non-Buy Now Pay Later balance on your Littlewoods account, you will still need to make at least your minimum payment as shown on your statement.
