A deal allows the user to purchase credit towards the purchase of goods and services from a merchant at a discounted price with respect to terms and conditions.
Any exceptions or restrictions on using your Deal will be listed under the Terms & Conditions section on the deal page and on your voucher. To be sure you’re using your Deal correctly, please note:
  • The Terms & Conditions will list how many vouchers you are allowed to buy for yourself and as gifts
  • Some deals have additional restrictions like “new clients only” or may require an extra fee
  • Deals are valid only for specific locations
  • Deals can be used right after purchase, up until the expiration date, but may not be combined with other specials or promos
After the expiration date printed on your Deal, its promotional value expires, but you can still redeem it at the merchant for the amount paid towards the goods or services listed on the Deal. For example, if you paid $10 for a Deal redeemable for $20 worth of food, that Deal is still valid for $10 worth of food at that business after it's expired.

This does not apply to tickets and may not apply to certain other deals. Always check the Terms & Conditions of the deal for any exceptions to this rule.

Any deal that does expire may also be redeemed for Sam’s Bucks.
That happens. Not all businesses are required to have deals. Businesses are adding new deals daily so check back often
