Buying goods and services

Gift vouchers

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 as soon as possible. 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.
