Last-Minute Hacks For Your Parents NSW Vouchers

  • Parents Only

In the aftermath of the relentless Coronvirus lockdowns, the NSW Government handed out a plethora of vouchers to help boost the economy and our well-being. Amongst them were $250 worth of Parents NSW vouchers per family, as a little thank you gift for the hard slog of homeschooling.

While helping bring business back to life, the Parents NSW vouchers, issued as five separate $50 vouchers, were designed to subsidise a well-earned getaway with an accommodation provider or some family fun with an experience.

Since the initiative launched in February, only a relative handful of the peace offerings have been claimed with the vast majority (we're talking millions of them!) left languishing in the Service NSW ether. Worse still, the vouchers expire this Sunday 9th October, so we're fast running out of time to cash in.
