In the past we've even seen other firms coming forward to accept gift cards when the retailer that's gone into administration won't honour them. When HMV entered administration in January 2013, for example, customers were given the option to exchange them for equivalent vouchers at Tesco, Asda or Boots instead. The Association of Business Recovery Professionals says gift cards may sometimes be accepted elsewhere to "preserve goodwill".

Maternity Exemption Certificate – This card will entitle you to free dental care and free prescriptions. You can keep this until your baby is a year old. Make sure you visit the dentist just before your baby turns one to get the full use of the card. You are also entitled to antenatal classes. These will provide you with loads of useful information on your pregnancy, labour and the early days of your babies life.

I love the app Verydice to get free diapers, wipes, baby clothes, bottles/pacifiers, even carseats all that come from Amazon. You just have to save up your tickets. Shipping is free too. Use the code 2899035 if you’re interested to get you some free rolls to start off. I’ve already redeemed over 20 baby items, so I know it’s legit lol but I’ve been playing almost 2 years.
So if a retailer does go bust and I'm unlikely to get my money back, should I just throw my gift card/voucher away? No. Don't be too quick to chuck gift cards – administrators may have a change of heart. For example, when Comet went into administration in November 2012, the administrator Deloitte ended up allowing it to accept gift cards, after originally saying it couldn't.

It has been argued that holiday giving destroys value due to mismatching gifts.[9] The most efficient way to keep value in gifting would be to give cash; however, this is socially acceptable only within limits. Gift cards, to a degree, may overcome this problem but have certain pitfalls. Some feel that the absence of the thought of selecting a specific gift makes a gift card a worse choice than a poorly executed but individual gift.[10] New products in the gift card industry are evolving to tackle this "impersonal" pitfall of gift cards. New services launched by some service providers allows for customization and personalization of gift cards.[11]

That's nice. A gift card makes a much nicer present than cold hard cash, doesn't it? Er, no, not really. You may not like giving cash as a Christmas present, but it's a much better way to give than purchasing a gift card. Cash is less risky, more flexible and guarantees the person you're giving to will be able to spend the amount you're giving – even if their favourite store goes under.
