Delivery time

Your will receive the first delivery 2-5 days after starting your subscription. Thereafter, we will ship a new order at your chosen time interval.

We cannot guarantee a specific date for your delivery. The date that is displayed next to your subscription under “My Subscriptions” is the next order date.

Our deliveries generally take about 2-5 days, so you can usually expect your delivery a maximum 5 days after the order date.

For information on how to change the next order date for your subscription click here.

For late deliveries (more than 5 days) you have the right to cancel your order and get your money back.

Prices

You will always receive the current price as displayed on this website at the time of your subscription order. This means that the price of each subscription order may differ from your very first order, such as a price increase or decrease since you started the subscription. When the order has been created, you will be sent an order confirmation email to the email address you provided when you setup your account. This order confirmation contains the final price of that order.  

You can always return your order within 14 days from delivery and get a full refund. Click here to read more.

Discounts & offers

We offer a discount of 5% off all subscription orders unless there is a better offer resulting in a cheaper price on the website. The discount only applies to the products and not to any delivery costs.

If there is a discount on the website at the time of your subscription order that is better than the subscription discount, you will automatically get that discount instead of the subscription discount.

Some examples:

  • There is a website offer that states “20% off all TENA Discreet” and you have ordered TENA Discreet as a subscription order. You will receive 20% off any TENA Discreet products in your subscription. You will not receive 20% TENA Discreet discount plus the 5% subscription discount
  • There is a website offer that states “Buy 3 TENA Men Active Fit and get 4” and you have ordered TENA Men as a subscription order. If you have a quantity of 3 TENA Men Active Fit in your subscription order, you will receive an extra pack of TENA Men Active Fit for free (i.e. 25% off). You will not receive the additional 5% subscription discount off the price. If you have a quantity of 2 or less TENA Men Active Fit in your subscription order, you will receive the 5% subscription discount.
  • There is a website offer that states “Buy 2 TENA Wash Cream and get 15% off” and you have ordered TENA Wash Cream as a subscription order. If you have a subscription with a quantity of 2 TENA Wash Cream, you will receive 15% off  those products. You will not receive the 15% TENA Wash Cream discount plus the 5% subscription discount. If you only have a quantity of 1 TENA Wash Cream in your subscription order, you will receive the 5% subscription discount.

Promotional codes

You can use a promo code when you are at the check out while setting up your subscription. The promo code discount will only apply to your first order. It is not possible to use a promo code for the reoccurring orders. 

If you have a promo code that you would like to use after you have set-up your subscription, you will need to cancel the current subscription and use the code when starting a new subscription. 

Payments

When starting your subscription by placing your first order, you can choose to pay by Maestro, VISA, Mastercard and VISA Electron. Your card details will be safely stored with our payment service provider, Barclaycard. The reason your payment card data is saved is to allow your payment card to be charged again when your next subscription order is shipped.

If we notice that your card is about to expire, we will send you an email asking you to update your payment card details. 

If we are unable to charge your card at the time of your order, the order will be cancelled. You will be notified that the order has been cancelled by email and you can start a new subscription.

There is no contract period for a TENA Direct subscription and you can cancel your subscription at any time. You must cancel the subscription before order date that you see in the “My subscriptions” section under “My account”. To cancel your subscription order, just click the ‘cancel subscription’ text next to the subscription you wish to cancel, and click ‘ok’ when the pop-up box appears asking you to confirm you want to cancel.
