  • They may be used to purchase goods of a higher price than the amount on the card, on payment of the difference.

  • If any item purchased with a gift card or e-gift card is subsequently exchanged for an item of a lower price or refunded, any money owing will be added to the remaining balance on the card.
  • If you do not spend the entire balance on the gift card / e-gift card, the remaining balance will be updated after each transaction. If spent in store, the remaining balance is shown on your printed till receipt.

Period of validity

  • Gift cards and e-gift cards are valid for the period which is the later of 24 months from:
    • the date of issue, or
    • the date of the last transaction (transactions include balance enquiries).

Any remaining balance will be cancelled on expiry of the validity period.

Cancellation

  • Cannot be returned or refunded, except in accordance with your statutory rights, for example in the event they are not of satisfactory quality.
  • Under the Regulations, (as outlined above), if you are contracting with us as a consumer online or by phone, you have the right to cancel all or part of your order for either a gift card or an e-gift card at any time up to 14 calendar days after the day on which you place your order, provided none of the balance has been spent. Further details are set out above. Please note that if you cancel a gift card you will not be required to return the physical gift card to M&S.

Gift cards purchased in ROI and Channel Islands

  • Gift cards purchased in the Republic of Ireland and the Channel Islands can be used in UK stores. Where necessary, our systems will convert Euro card balances to Sterling using a regularly updated exchange rate.

Changes to the Gift Card Terms and Conditions

M&S reserves the right to amend the terms and conditions of gift cards and e-gift cards at any time and to take appropriate action, including the cancellation of the card, if, in its discretion, it deems such action necessary. This does not affect your statutory rights.
