Kristin Long can’t use her Southwest Airlines vouchers because of a permanent medical condition. Can she get a refund? “I can’t use these Southwest Airlines vouchers — how about a refund?”
After a disastrous cruise, Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) issued $2,500 in vouchers to Jaihar Murli and his family. But the certificates expired after a year, as they usually do. “Why won’t Norwegian Cruise Line extend this voucher for another year?”

But guess what he got instead? “I don’t want these vouchers — I want cash!”
