Terms & Conditions
1. Terms & Conditions
1.1 Lifestyle Vouchers, owned and powered by Motivates Inc. Ltd (‘We’), a company registered in England and Wales under Company registration number 11319734 (‘Motivates’). Our registered offices are at 3 Bath Place, London EC2A 3DR
1.2 Lifestyle Vouchers can be redeemed against a broad range of retail and leisure brands. Each voucher has a unique reference which must be quoted when redeeming. Vouchers and the associated references must be kept safely and securely. We take no responsibility for any loss you may incur as a result of voucher theft, impersonation or identity fraud. We reserve the right to cancel vouchers or credit balances that we deem to have been obtained fraudulently.
2. Redeeming Lifestyle Vouchers
2.1 To redeem, you must first register your Lifestyle Voucher online. This will create Account Credit which can then be exchanged for your choice of retailer.
2.2 Lifestyle Vouchers and Account Credit cannot be redeemed directly with the retailer.
3.1 Lifestyle Vouchers are valid two years from date of purchase. The exact expiry date is printed on the voucher and/or advised upon successful activation.
3.2 You must use the voucher before this expiry date or it will no longer be valid.
3.3 Account Credit can be used until the expiry of the original voucher and is non-refundable.
4.1 Lifestyle Vouchers allow a range of redemption options from a variety of third party retailers.
4.2 Although the selection of retailers detailed in the voucher and voucher pack is correct at the time of printing, it may change from time to time.
4.3 If your retailer e-gift card/code redemption option is higher in price than the value of your original Lifestyle Voucher, you will need to pay the price difference. Any remaining Account Credit can be used until the original expiry date of the Lifestyle Voucher and is non-refundable.
5. Retailer Insolvencies
5.1 Motivates Inc. Ltd will not be liable for the conduct or actions of any participating retailer.
5.2 Lifestyle Vouchers are not covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme.
5.3 In the unlikely event of a participating retailer becoming insolvent or ceasing business, the funds on any retailer gift card or e-gift card/code you have received as a result of redeeming a Lifestyle Voucher may not be available to spend.
5.4 There is no obligation on Motivates Inc. Ltd to replace or exchange any previously issued and unspent retailer gift cards or e-gift cards/codes or return any credit to a Lifestyle Voucher account.
5.5 If there is cause for concern regarding solvency, there may be times when Motivates Inc. Ltd temporarily suspends the listing and availability of any participating retailer. This is to purely to protect our clients and customers from exchanging their Lifestyle Voucher for a retailer gift card or e-gift card that may, according to news reports and reliable, publicly obtainable trading information, potentially be null and void should any such retailer go into administration or become insolvent.
6.1 For fraud prevention reasons, debit and credit card use, as well as your company’s account credit use, may be queried and we may block further usage, either completely or only in certain territories. In such circumstances, you can contact our Customer Services Team.
6.2 We and our participating retailers reserve the right to, at any time suspend, restrict or cancel your gift card/e-gift card/gift card code or refuse to issue or replace a gift card/e-gift card/gift card code for reasons relating to the following:
a) we are concerned about the security of your account or gift card/e-gift card/gift card code(s) we have issued to you;
b) we suspect your account is being used in an unauthorised or fraudulent manner;
c) we need to do so to comply with the law.
If we do this, you may contact our Customer Services Team to obtain the reason for the suspension, restriction or cancellation and we will tell you as soon as we can or are permitted to do so.
6.3 We may also refuse to pay a transaction:
a) if we are concerned about security of your gift card/e-gift card/gift card code or we suspect your gift card/e-gift card/gift card code is being used in an unauthorised or fraudulent manner;
b) if we have reasonable grounds to believe that you are acting in breach of this agreement;
c) if we believe that a transaction is potentially suspicious or illegal (for example, if we believe that a transaction is being made fraudulently); or
d) because of errors, failures (whether mechanical or otherwise) or refusals by merchants, payment processors or payment schemes processing transactions.
6.4 If we refuse to authorise a transaction, you may contact the Customer Services Team and we will help investigate to advise why, if practicable, unless it would be unlawful for us to do so. While speaking with the Customer Services Team you may have the opportunity to correct any information we hold, and which may have caused us to refuse a transaction.

10.2 We will deduct a processing fee of £1 (incl. VAT) from each individual donation, regardless of value.
10.3 Whilst we have established relationships with each of the charities that appear, we have no commercial, contractual or beneficial arrangements with them. We will, however, ensure that each donation, less the processing fee of £1 (incl. VAT), is paid to the charity as nominated within 28 days of the date that the donation is made.
11.1 Refunds on unused Lifestyle Vouchers can be made within 14 days of purchase.
11.2 Refunds are always made to the person or business account that purchased the original voucher and will be issued in the form of a credit note or as credit to use on future Lifestyle purchases.

13. Important Information
13.1 Some Lifestyle Voucher retailer redemption options are subject to restrictions such as specific validity periods, delivery formats or in store/online only redemption. This is out of our control at Motivates. However, we provide clear details for each retailer in each retailer’s Important Information section. We also provide a link to their full gift card terms and conditions (if they have an online link to their specific gift card terms).
13.2 Once you have confirmed your chosen retailer e-gift card, it is not possible to cancel if these restrictions cannot be met, so please check carefully.

16.2 However, once Lifestyle Vouchers have been redeemed and swapped and you have successfully received a retailer’s own gift card/e-gift card, you are subject to their terms and conditions, so any complaints at this stage of the process are to be taken up directly with the retailer, not Motivates Inc. Ltd.
