Questions about our “Buy One Get One Free” offer

Why is the free voucher only £15.00 even though I bought a £30.00 voucher?

The cost of the free vouchers is being generously covered by a supporter and we wanted to ensure we spread the word about Lendwithcare to the maximum number of people. The free vouchers give new people a taste the pleasure of improving people’s lives through Lendwithcare and we hope they will be encouraged to continue lending in the long term.

Why does the free voucher have to be for a new lender only?  I don’t know if the person I want to give it to is a lender already or not.

The free voucher promotion is intended to help spread the word to as many people as possible which is why it is for people new to Lendwithcare.  If you choose to send the voucher by email, our system will know when you enter the email address whether that person is already a lender. If you choose to print the voucher there is unfortunately no way that the system can know whether they are already a lender.  They can always pass the voucher on to someone else.

Can the free vouchers only be used by the person I have chosen to send it to at the point of purchase?

No, you can give the free voucher to anyone (assuming they are not a Lender already).

What happens if I give the free voucher to someone and they are already a lender?

They could pass the voucher on to a friend or family member who is not already a lender.

Why does the free voucher not get repaid back to the recipient of the voucher once it is loaned?

The cost of the free vouchers is being generously covered by a supporter and if the voucher could be withdrawn, our supporter would in essence be giving money away to an individual when their intention is to support Lendwithcare.  The free vouchers give new people a taste the pleasure of improving people’s lives through Lendwithcare and we hope they will be encouraged to continue lending in the long term.  If they then put money into Lendwithcare, that money will be treated as normal and they will be able to re-lend it or withdraw it.

The free vouchers have run out and I only just heard about the promotion.

We are very sorry that the vouchers have run out, this is due to the success of the promotion.  As the costs are generously sponsored by one of our supporters we could only offer a certain value of vouchers.

I have already bought some vouchers before the free voucher promotion started, can I now get the free vouchers.

Unfortunately not, it was quite complicated to programme our systems to accommodate the free vouchers and it is not possible to issue them in a separate transaction.  This is the first time we have run such a promotion and we will learn from this trial.

I didn’t understand how the system works and I ordered my vouchers and didn’t get the free ones.  Can you send me the free ones now?

Unfortunately not, it was quite complicated to programme our systems to accommodate the free vouchers and it is not possible to issue them in a separate transaction. This is the first time we have run such a promotion and we will learn from this trial.

I don’t like the idea of Lendwithcare giving away free money in the form of vouchers.

This is something we considered carefully and why the promotion is sponsored by a supporter and why the value of the vouchers cannot be withdrawn.

How long will the promotion last for?

Unfortunately we can’t tell you a date as there is a specific number of vouchers available and we don’t know how quickly they will sell out. The cost of the free vouchers is being generously covered by a supporter. The number of vouchers is driven by the amount of sponsorship we have been given.  It may be that other supporters will come forward to sponsor more vouchers, in which case the promotion will be extended.

I would like to sponsor some free vouchers

We would be absolutely delighted if other supporters would consider sponsoring further free vouchers, please do contact us on info@lendwithcare.org  Spreading the word about Lendwithcare is one of the most valuable things you can do.
