The Family Planning Association told us: "All the brands on the high street, including cheaper own brands, are extremely accurate. Just because a test is from a pound shop doesn't make it less reliable. The most important thing is for women to make sure they can understand the instructions and what they're supposed to do with the test to make it work."

Cards may have a barcode or magnetic strip, which is read by an electronic credit card machine. Many cards have no value until they are sold, at which time the cashier enters the amount which the customer wishes to put on the card. This amount is rarely stored on the card but is instead noted in the store's database, which is crosslinked to the card ID. Gift cards thus are generally not stored-value cards as used in many public transport systems or library photocopiers, where a simplified system (with no network) stores the value only on the card itself. To thwart counterfeiting, the data is encrypted. The magnetic strip is also often placed differently than on credit cards, so they cannot be read or written with standard equipment. Other gift cards may have a set value and need to be activated by calling a specific number.

In the past, uniform standards concerning gift cards did not exist. This was set to change as an addendum to the Credit CARD Act of 2009 directs the federal government to create consumer-friendly standards pertaining to gift cards.[19] Most notably, the new regulations prohibit retailers from setting expiration dates unless they are at least 5 years after the card's date of issue or the date on which funds were last added to the card. In addition, retailers are no longer able to assess dormancy, inactivity, or service fees unless the card has been inactive for at least 12 months, and if fees are added after that period, the details of such fees must be clearly disclosed on the card. Additionally, retailers are unable to levy more than one fee per month. The new provisions took effect on August 22, 2010.[20]
Gift vouchers (sometimes known as gift tokens) are printed paper gifts available in pre-determined values that can be spent in specific stores. They can be single brand gift vouchers or multi-retailer gift vouchers. Multi-retailer gift vouchers have the additional benefit of being redeemable in more than one store or brand. Gift vouchers and multi-retailer Gift vouchers can be used as full or part payment of items at the checkout of participating stores and are often used as an alternative to cash.

Bought a gift card or voucher worth £100 or more on a credit card? Try Section 75. If you paid for even a small part of the gift card on a credit card – and it was worth more than £100 in total – then Section 75 of the Consumer Credit Act 1974 may cover you. It states that your card company must refund all purchases worth between £100 and £30,000 in total if you don't get the service or the item you paid for.
Gift cards are credit card sized plastic cards that have a stored value of money pre-loaded on to them. There are two main types of gift card; single branded gift cards can be spent in only one chain of stores and multi retail gift cards can be spent in multiple participating stores. Some gift cards can also be redeemed online using a code printed on the card. Gift cards are a popular gift in the UK due to the ease of use and the choice they give to the user.
When you sign up for the Dr. Seuss & His Friends book club subscription, you will get 4 books for $4.99 and no shipping costs. It is definitely a steal. Dr. Seuss books are classic and I love my bedtime memories of reading them with my kids. Make sure to cancel the subscription, which is a piece of cake to do online to prevent this from becoming a recurring charge. Here’s the link to register.
A gift card may resemble a credit card or display a specific theme on a plastic card the size of a credit card. The card is identified by a specific number or code, not usually with an individual name, and thus could be used by anybody. They are backed by an on-line electronic system for authorization. Some gift cards can be reloaded by payment and can be used thus multiple times.
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".

If you're buying pricey baby equipment which you plan to sell after you've used it, forumites recommend hanging on to the boxes if you've got space. Selling items in their original boxes may help to fetch a better price, though only sell when you're sure you won't need the items again. See the eBay Selling Tricks guide for tips to help you get the best price.
