£10 eye test voucher

When I went shopping in Morrisons recently I was given a "£10 eye test voucher":

£10 eye test voucher for Specsavers
That's nice - but I don't know whether the voucher gets me an eye test for £10 or just £10 off an eye test.

Of course, if a Specsavers eye test ordinarily costs £20, then it makes no difference.

It would be a nice additional touch if the small print was extra-small.

Might wanna have a second look at that first sentence...

Thanks, Chris!

What does "Present at time of test" mean? Does that mean it has to be done while-you-wait, or do they give you a lollipop afterwards?

I think it means that Specsavers can't test your eyes without you actually being there. But I'm hoping for the lollipop...

Of course, if you lived in Scotland you'd get a FREE eye test on the NHS. It's dumb, but there you go. Sucks to be English, which is why I moved.

You didn't like being English so you moved? How does that work? Do English people not get free eye tests in Scotland?

Surely it means "present this coupon" - so they know when they start you're getting the deal. I'm not sure why they need to know that, but over here in the US coupons are often refused if they're presented after the fact, when they hand you the bill. (It might have something to do with their records keeping or software, I suppose.)

I like your last remark ("Of course...")

with reference to the Ridger comment places like restaurants need to have your voucher up front so that they can give you smaller portions and place you in a naff seating area
