Gift vouchers can be a great idea but it is important to consider a number of things when buying or using them.
When buying a voucher, always check the terms and conditions of use and sale, including:
- the value of the voucher
- the expiry date
- any restrictions on its use.
When receiving a gift voucher, there are a few things you should remember:
- Keep the voucher somewhere safe; the store is under no obligation to replace a lost voucher.
- Use the full value of the voucher before the expiry date; the store does not have to honour an expired voucher.
- If a store stops trading or is sold and you haven’t used your voucher, you may not be able to redeem it.
