What is the difference between the BFS Voucher and a normal restaurant gift card?
Whereas the BFS voucher is valid for all partners on the platform, a normal restaurant voucher is only valid for the one restaurant from which it was purchased. With the BFS Voucher our entire BFS-curated selection of restaurants is at your fingertips.
How do I check my Voucher credit?
To check the balance on your BFS Voucher, you can simply visit the Redeem Page and enter your unique code. If the code still has credit, this will be displayed for you. You do not have to redeem the Voucher straight away, you can come back another time when you’re ready to dine!
Can you accommodate Corporate Gifting?
If you’re interested in a versatile and delicious gift for your employees or coworkers, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us here as we’d love to create a customized offer for you.

Tips and technical malfunctions
Voucher has not arrived (digital vouchers)
As a rule, the e-mail arrives immediately. Sometimes it takes a little longer due to various checks by your mail provider.
Otherwise, also check the spam folder of your mailbox and make sure that your mailbox is not full.
If the email has not arrived after 30-60 minutes, please send us a message with your order information; often a typo has crept in or the vouchers are not delivered – especially with company accounts – due to the email account privacy.
Email in spam
Sometimes our emails end up in the spam folder of mailboxes or cannot be delivered due to strict security rules. Especially with the providers t-online and GMX this happens more often. If you have the chance to use an email address of another provider, please do so.
If during the payment process you receive the information that the payment failed, your account will not be debited and you will not receive a voucher. In this case, please try again and choose another payment method, if necessary.
Page loads slowly
The performance of our site is influenced by many factors. Often, it is due to a shared internet connection or many simultaneous requests. We are constantly working to improve the performance of our site.
Restaurant no longer on the site
You have found a restaurant where you would like to redeem your BFS Voucher, but you can no longer find it? This is probably due to internal arrangements of the restaurant or other temporary issues. But don’t worry, the partner will probably be online again soon.
