Expiration Dates On Vouchers


The social-buying category is extremely popular with consumers; companies like Groupon and LivingSocial offer huge discounts – usually 50-90% off – from local businesses. The magic of this category is that the companies buy bulk discounts for the consumer, and you, as the consumer, purchase a voucher, better known as a gift card.

Groupon and LivingSocial have sold thousands of these voucher / gift cards in the past few years. However, many consumers have also been burned when they find they haven’t used their vouchers / gift card before the expiration date. As these vouchers are usually purchased for personal use, they fall under the legal category of gift cards.
