The Sydney woman used the vouchers to cover 18 holes of mini golf at the popular location Holey Moley, and the rest used to buy two pizzas
She then told her 7,000 followers that the remaining two vouchers could be used to purchase two pizzas on the spot.
“Cover the drinks!” She encouraged.
Her adorable date idea has been viewed by over 18,000 people, with many tagging other users in the comments.
‘Free trip to Holey Moley?’ One user asked his friend.
Five million New South Wales residents can get free food, drink and entertainment under the state government scheme to generate much-needed revenue for small hospitality businesses after Covid’s closure.
Holey Moley is just one of the locations where NSW residents can redeem their Dine & Discover vouchers, including participating museums, theaters and concerts
The $ 500 million initiative was designed to revitalize the state’s hospitality industry as sites emerge from the coronavirus pandemic.
The NSW government is giving all adults two $ 25 vouchers to spend at restaurants, cafes, bars, wineries, pubs and clubs Monday through Thursday, with any company that has signed up.
An additional two $ 25 vouchers are available seven days a week for arts and entertainment, including museums, theaters, and concerts.
The vouchers are accessible through the Service NSW app under the ‘Vouchers’ section and can be downloaded as a QR code, which can be used at participating companies.
There will be a non-digital alternative for customers who do not have a smartphone or compatible device.
While 2.6 million people have registered for their vouchers, less than 10 percent of the $ 25 vouchers have been redeemed statewide
It was recently announced that less than 10 percent of the $ 25 vouchers have been used statewide, with less than two months left from the high-profile scheme.
While 2.6 million people have signed up for their vouchers, the very low usage of the vouchers has led to calls to extend the expiration dates.
Daniel Mookhey, opposition spokesman for finance and small business, previously told Daily Mail Australia that the government currently has no chance of meeting its $ 500 million target by the June 30th deadline.
“With the program being completed in two months, it is clear that significant amounts of money are left and not distributed to the small businesses that badly need it,” said Mr Mookhey.
Residents of NSW have only four weeks to redeem their vouchers before the expiration date June 30, calling for an indefinite extension of the closing date
Mr. Mookhey said the scheme should have no expiration date and “remain open until every dollar has been spent.”
“This money will do more good in the tills of NSW small businesses than in the Treasury bank account.”
State Treasurer Dominic Perrottet said he was open to expanding the scheme to support Sydney’s CBD, an area where small businesses are still struggling.
“Adapting or expanding the government’s successful dining and discovery voucher program to help the Sydney CBD was one of the ideas put forward at the successful CBD summit held last week,” Perrottet told NCA Newswire.
We are investing an additional $ 20 million in the CBD revitalization strategy and are currently working on the ideas put forward at the summit to see what practical steps we can take to boost Sydney’s CBD economy and boost jobs. ‘
HOW DOES DINE & DISCOVER NSW WORK?
NSW residents 18 and older can apply for $ 100 in vouchers. The vouchers can be used at participating NSW companies registered as COVID vaults.
