Enyone need a halb-tax discount?

Catching up on my paperwork and discovered two vouchers of 25 CHF each sent to me by SBB in October. These are for anyone wishing to get a halb-tax before end of January. Checking if anyone's interested before I bin them.

Re: Enyone need a halb-tax discount?

The discount vouchers issued by the SBB are a bit of a joke. They were forced on the SBB by the price supervision authority and the SBB have come up with something that isn't going to cost them much as most people won't use them.
Firstly, most of the time the vouchers have to be exchanged in person at a ticket office. As the SBB have now closed most ticket offices in favour of machines, that cuts a lot of people out.
The conditions on the vouchers are quite restrictive or make the vouchers largely useless, like offering you a discount on something you already have and ensuring that the next time you might need it the voucher will have expired.
I bin the vouchers directly.

Thanks for the insight catandmouse. Interesting info about the supervision authority.
The vouchers are now gone; hopefully the people who contacted me and now have them are happy and found them useful.

The one's that I have seen are valid only for 'new customers'. Not valid for renewals.
