Residents of New South Wales have only three days left to use the last of their Dine & Discover vouchers.
The vouchers will expire on June 30, meaning there are just 3 days left to knock down the cost of your meal or experience.
The voucher scheme was introduced in early 2021 as a way to boost business activity when the state reopened after strict COVID-19 lockdowns.

Under the scheme, adult residents received six $25 vouchers to be spent at cafes, restaurants, bars and entertainment and recreation venues.
Minister for Customer Service and Digital Government Victor Dominello said the program had been a game changer for local businesses and families.
“The vouchers have been an overwhelming success, by getting more customers through doors of businesses and boosting household budgets,” Dominello said.
“The program has served its intended purpose by supporting our local hospitality, cultural and entertainment businesses, all of which were hit hard by the pandemic.”
Almost half a billion dollars had been invested across 16,600 businesses, but Dominello said there was still money to be redeemed.
“My message to the community is simple – don’t miss out. Check to see if you have any vouchers remaining and spend them now,” he said.
“Whether you’re going to a restaurant with friends, checking out a new movie or taking the kids to a museum, there is money to be saved.”
More than 5.4 million customers registered for the program, receiving three $25 Dine NSW and three $25 Discover NSW Vouchers.
After June 30, Dine & Discover NSW Vouchers will move to the expired tab of the vouchers section in the Service NSW app but Discover NSW registered businesses can still accept Parents NSW vouchers until October 9, 2022.
The NSW Government launched the $250 Parents NSW vouchers to reward and thank eligible NSW households for their efforts to support learning from home in 2021.
Stay NSW Vouchers, which assist the accommodation sector, are also available until October 9.
