Terms & Conditions

National Book Token Gift Card can only be used to purchase books. It is not a credit card or a charge card, nor is it a debit card linked to a current account. It is a prepaid card which means that money must be loaded onto the Card at the time of purchase; cardholders can then use the Card to pay for full or part payments for books at participating retailers. Refunds or change will not be given. If the value of the purchase is less than the value of the card, the balance will remain on the card for future purchases. Certain limits apply to the Card. A minimum value of £1 is required to load or top-up the Card, a maximum value of £250 may be loaded onto the Card. Interest will not be payable in respect of Card balances. If the card is not used for a period of 24 consecutive months it will expire and any remaining funds will be deducted from it. (Use for the purposes of this term includes balance enquiries). The card is for non-commercial use and may not be acquired for re-sale without written consent. Book Tokens Ltd takes a number of steps to ensure that your gift card or voucher funds are secure, so that you can spend them when are wherever you want to. This includes managing a ring-fenced investment portfolio and taking steps to ensure that the business can honour the total value of unredeemed gift cards at any one time. In addition, Book Tokens Ltd has been operating for over 80 years and its performance is not tied to the success of any one retailer. However, gift card funds are not protected under the financial services compensation scheme and the event of administration, the funds on your gift card or voucher may not be available to spend. National Book Tokens cannot be redeemed on Amazon.
