The deadline to spend Northern Ireland’s £100 high street voucher has been extended by two weeks.

The pre-paid Spend Local cards were due to expire on November 30 but will now remain valid until December 14.

The pre-paid card scheme entitles everyone aged 18 and over in Northern Ireland to spend £100 in shops, to encourage people back to their local highstreets and support local businesses following the Covid-19 pandemic. It is designed to boost local economies and the scheme made an immediate difference on Northern Ireland’s highstreets during October, significantly improving footfall. However, there was a delay on card distribution and the scheme has been extended, as more than 1.42 million people applied for their voucher.

The card itself is a prepaid Mastercard and is available anywhere that accepts Mastercard payment and can be used to purchase goods and serviced. However, it is important to note that the card cannot be used online, or to withdraw cash.
