Borders - Vouchers can no longer be used

With rising costs and increased learning needs, financing our children's education is no longer a simple walk in the park. Discuss with other parents about how they are managing their finances to cope with their expenses.

Unused Borders vouchers can no longer be used
04:46 AM Aug 21, 2011
Borders bookstore vouchers and gift cards which have not been redeemed can no longer be used, said the bookstore's judicial manager Tim Reid.

He told Channel NewsAsia the store plans to initiate a process on its website for people with such vouchers to register. The flagship store at Wheelock Place has less than a week to clear out from its premises after a dispute with the landlord.

the moral of the the story :

never hold on to them, use it when you have it

same for other merchants' vouchers, you never know when it will be worthless

Definitely. And I renewed my membership barely a month before the first whiff of problems hit the air.

We can frame the vouchers up. You never know, one day they may be worth a lot, like Lehman Brothers memorabilia. :evil: :evil:
