Are du Tuesday codes going to be charged from 23 FEB 2018?

Recently, at the end of each du Tuesday SMS with the code, it says "Enjoy our monthly offer without any charge now & get 4 codes every month automatically (after 23/02 charge of AED 2+VAT/code will apply)".

 

What does this mean? Am I going to be charged AED 2+VAT each time I receive a du Tuesday code?

Yup. 4 times a month on top of it. Can't figure out how to deactivate as we got great customer care numbers where we cant even speak to customer agents

That's easy. Send UNSUB MOVIE to 9979 to deactivate it.

Hi @TousifSaleh

 

Yes that's true, there will be a charge on every code received of 2 dirhams + VAT.

Unsubscribed. I don't want to get charged for codes that I will not use.

I understand it is possible for Du to add VAT to Du Tuesday codes under Article 7 which states: "The sale or issuance of any Voucher" is chargeable. The voucher is issued to yoru mobile and is therefore chargeable to VAT. The problem with this is that the text is essentially an advert. Would you be charged VAT for every advert you see on the Sheikh Z Road ? No, therefore, it seems that Du Tuesday is caught by the legislation but perhaps  it is not an intended consequence.
