I cashed in some of my Nectar points for Amazon gift vouchers. They were sent by e-mail and that said Expiration Date: 26-Nov-2011. I've now added them to my Amazon account and it shows a balance of £25. However, I can't see anywhere on my Amazon account that indicates when they expire. Do they not expire once added to your account.

You have exactly 12 months from the date you get them to spend them.

Thanks for the info.

It seems likely that I'll spend them quite soon, though I would have thought my Amazon account would have shown the expiry date.

I was quite shocked to find that Amazon had appropriated about £8 from my account as it was money from a Gift certificate which had expired. I had no idea and no warning of this and since I would spend the money on Amazon anyway it also seems a bit mean spirited. These certificates were bought by my children to buy books for my Kindle. I will be telling them not to buy them again.
