  • The terms and conditions above were in effect at the time I wrote the piece. I would escalate the case.

      Thanks, John. I guess then problem is they’re unlikely to take account of a third party version of things and they’ve amended theirs! Sadly didn’t take a screenshot.

      • I am sure that someone knows about the amendments that they had done to the T&C’s. You can always send a friendly nudge through an Attorney General (just pick up a state, where you have friend living) in the United States.

          Haha probably – not sure I’m wanting to take things quite that far though! Realistically I may not have been able to make use of the voucher anyway if it was too restrictive (as was likely the case, I’m sure!).
