AIBU to feel a bit miffed that gift vouchers have an expiry date? I've just come across a Dining Out voucher that was given to us last Christmas - completely forgot about it! Luckily it was valid for 12 months, so we can still use it But if it hadn't come to light until after the expiry date, why should we have had to lose it? The company has had the money and would not have supplied anything in return - just free money in the till for them! If the giver had given us a couple of banknotes instead and said "treat yourselves to a meal on me", they wouldn't have a time limit on their use!
Maybe someone can give me a good reason for this practice, but I'm darned if I can think of one - and I can't help wondering how much money is made by these businesses from people who mislay or forget to use vouchers
