You still shouldn’t buy vouchers for Christmas

Following on from my original post a couple of weeks ago, 5 Reasons Not to Give Vouchers this Christmas, there was a fair bit of media coverage in recent weeks on the whole issue of giving vouchers.

Pat Kenny covered vouchers for Christmas a couple of times on his morning radio show. It might become available here sometime soon to listen to.

Conor Pope also covered vouchers recently in his PriceWatch column in The Irish Times. James Doorley, Chairman of the Consumers Association of Ireland has also covered vouchers on his blog.

Having read all that coverage on giving vouchers for Christmas, maybe you’ll think twice about it – the more you read about vouchers, the more it’s not all cut and dried.

It doesn’t take long to have a think about what your nearest and dearest would love to receive for Christmas. You know what they say, “it’s the thought that counts”.
