Using Promotional Codes
A promotional code is redeemed by entering its code in the 'basket' in the online purchase process.

Promotional codes cannot be used in conjunction with each other or any other offer/discount listed on scienceinsport.com.

The Government announced in April 2012 Budget that Sports Nutrition Drinks would attract VAT at the standard rate from 1 October 2012. Despite a lengthy campaign by the sports nutrition industry this change could not be overturned.
Sports Nutrition Drinks include any products that are marketed to enhance physical performance and/or accelerate recovery after exercise.
SiS GO Energy, SiS GO Electrolyte and SiS REGO powders fall within the category of Sports Nutrition Drinks and VAT will therefore be added on all of these products from 1 October 2012.
