All current Book Tokens are issued with expiry dates, extending two years from the date of purchase. However, as Booksellers administers Book Tokens directly, there is a little bit of flexibility. 

If you are a member of the public hoping to use an expired token at a bookshop, please contact us by phone or email, and explain the circumstances in which it expired. We're pretty nice. 

If you are at a bookshop (and they are on this list), and you realise together that they have expired, please ask the store to call us directly.  

If your Book Token doesn't seem to have an expiry date, and you know it is fairly old, it's possible that it was issued prior to 2010. Book Tokens issued prior to 2010 never expire. If you are either a customer or store, please be assured that you may use and accept them.
