Voucher

A document entitling the holder to some payment. For example, one may be provided with a voucher for a discount on some product a company sells. Likewise, one may have a voucher for a rebate on a product already purchased. Vouchers have entered political discussions as well, with some advocating the provision of vouchers to local taxpayers, which may be used to finance education at a private school.
