PLEASE NOTE: The Annual Repeat tick box means that EVERY YEAR this/these DATE(s) will NOT be included in the promotion


Pros: Good for a holiday that is the same date (i.e. Valentines, Christmas, St Patrick's Day, Burn's Night)

Cons: Not so good for ones that are not the same date every year (i.e. Easter, Mother's Day, Father's Day)
