If a retailer offers a membership benefits scheme where you pay a fee and in return get vouchers and raffles, where do you stand if they then cease to offer the raffles or change the rules on the vouchers? If they offer this scheme as a lifetime membership, where you pay more as a one off payment and then don't need to renew again. If they then suddenly decide that this no longer suits them and they withdraw the scheme, but are still trading, where do those lifetime members stand?

    Any one in mind or theoretical query?
    My guess is it would be hidden in T & Cs, basically translates as "Tough, suck it up" :|

    "Lifetime" will be defined as the lifetime of the promotion. In other words, when they decide it stops, that's it.

    Lifetime doesn't mean *your* lifetime. Pretty much ever.

    "This LED Lightbulb is guaranteed for life" doesn't mean it's the last you will ever need to buy. It means "we guarantee it will last at least 8,000 hours subject to terms and conditions".
