M&S is growing faculty meal vouchers from £ 15 to £ 20 for low earnings households in England – value it?
Families with children in England who qualify for school lunches (Gov.uk has eligibility criteria) will receive a £ 15 voucher per week per child (£ 20 if one parent chooses an M&S voucher) provided your school this wishes give these coupons instead of grocery packages. The vouchers can be sent to parents to cover the four weeks between Monday 18th January and Friday 12th February.
When your school has issued these grocery vouchers, you will be emailed a 16-digit code that you can redeem online for an e-gift card of your choice. You can spend £ 15 at Aldi, Asda, the Company Shop Group, Island, McColl & # 39; s, Morrisons, Sainsbury & # 39; s, Tesco or Waitrose, or £ 20 at M&S (it will appear as a £ 15 voucher, but M&S says the extra £ 5 will be automatically added within hours of receipt). Alternatively, your school can select a gift card, print it out and send it to you.
How long is a voucher valid?
The voucher works just like a gift card, so you don't have to spend everything at once. The expiration dates are between 12 months and five years. Please visit Edenred (the company that sells the coupons) for more information, including what to do if your code does not come in and other frequently asked questions.
