Households across the Central Coast are being reminded these school holidays to use any outstanding Stay NSW and Parents NSW vouchers, with new figures revealing the programs have collectively added hundreds of millions of dollars to the State’s economy.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast Adam Crouch said the vouchers have provided hip pocket relief to local families, helping boost their budget, with both programs set to expire on 9 October 2022.
“The people of NSW have warmly embraced both the Stay and Parent voucher programs, with almost $282 million injected into the State’s economy since their inception,” Mr Crouch said.
“I encourage our community to redeem any outstanding vouchers. Whether you want to book a weekend away or take the kids to a movie, the Reptile Park, Tenpin Bowling, Clip N Climb and much much more, the remaining time left over these school holidays are an opportune time for people to spend their vouchers.
“The vouchers are a win-win. They provide a boost to household budgets as well as providing much needed stimulus for local businesses, with the average spend tracking well above $100 when they redeem a $50 voucher for both programs.
“Don’t miss out – with only five days left, use them or lose them.”
The NSW Government launched these vouchers to reward and thank eligible NSW households for their efforts to support learning from home in 2021.
NSW Government Vouchers are non-transferable and can only be redeemed by the customer who was issued the voucher.
They cannot be used as a gift or donation to a registered business and cannot be exchanged for cash or gift vouchers.
