Can I give a Boston Deal as a gift?
Of course! You can choose, “Buy this deal for a friend” at checkout to have Boston.com email the voucher to the recipient, or you can print out the voucher as you normally would and give it to a friend (unless specifically stated otherwise on the Boston Deal).
If I don’t use the full value of a Boston Deal in one visit, can I use the rest later?
Sometimes! Please read carefully the fine print to determine whether or not you can use a deal in multiple visits, or if the deal is a one-time redemption deal. As always, contact us with any questions.

If you have a problem with your Boston Deal or an order placed with your voucher, please contact our customer service team. Whatever the issue is, we’ll work with you to right the situation! Full refunds are always available within seven days of purchase. All other requests will be handled on a case-by-case basis.
What happens if my Boston Deal expires?
If you didn’t have a chance to use your Boston Deal before it expired, don’t worry! After the expiration date passes, the promotional value expires, but you may still use it for the amount you paid for it for up to seven years (as per Massachusetts state law).
What if the business closes down before I redeem my Boston Deal?
If something happens that makes it impossible for the business to honor your Boston Deal before its expiration, we will absolutely refund you the entire amount you spent.
I missed a Boston Deal or it sold out before I could buy it. Will I get another chance?
We like to switch up our Boston Deals, so you won’t see the same business featured more than once in a short period of time. Please feel free to contact us to let us know if one of our Boston Deals was of particular interest. We’ll work on getting the business to run another deal in the future!
