If a discount offer stated "offer ends July 21st" would you expect the discount to be available if you attempted to make the purchase on July 21st?

Or does that mean it ends at 11:59pm on July 20th?

  • That's the part that's usually in very small to fine print.... LOL!

    I would expect it to be good all day through the end of the day July 21st.

  • Right! Apparently in this case "until" and "ends" means once the clock hits 7/21 the offer is no longer valid.

  • That's ridiculous. If that was the case they should say the coupon it good through July 20th

  • Offer "ends" tells me I can use it until 11:59 pm on the 21st. If they used the word "until", that would be more iffy, that could imply that it's good up to, but not including that date. But ends to me, means it's good through the end of the day on that particular date.
