Did you receive a HMV gift voucher for Christmas, only to have your precious funds ripped away by the British retailer’s plummet into administration? Good news! You can finally pick up that copy of Weekend at Bernie’s you’ve always wanted.

The troubled high-street chain is resuming normal gift card service from tomorrow. Many consumers were outraged by the company’s decision to stop accepting vouchers and will be relieved at today’s news.

“Since our appointment as Joint Administrators on Tuesday afternoon, we have been urgently assessing the Companies’ financial position,” Deloitte’s Nick Edwards said in a statement to Eurogamer. “I am pleased to confirm that, having concluded this assessment, we are able to honour gift cards.”

HMV is also set to resume its payment of proceeds towards charities.
