28 days. Confused.

Sorry this is a stupid one -

I generated a collect plus courier label on Friday 24th April. Haven’t used it yet for various reasons. Website says the labels are ‘valid for 28 calendar days’ after which they cannot be used or refunded.
The ‘order date’ of my label is showing as 24.04.20.

Friday is 28 days after 24/4. So will it still be ok to use on Friday? Or would that be day 29? Would they count the day I ordered it as day 1?
AiBU to be confused? Don’t want to go to use it on Friday and find it’s expired.

So what do you think? Still valid on Friday or not?

Don't ask me- I can't do stuff like that! What's a calendar day anyway? I suppose it means you lose the part days.

Can you just plan to use it Thursday, just in case?

I think calendar day is just as opposed to 28 working days?
Yes I could just about get there tomorrow but Friday would be much easier!

Well i still don't know, but if I waffle enough someone who does may notice..!

They do include that day. So most likely will have expired on friday

I would only count mon-fri in the calendar days 🧐 Can you ring tomorrow to confirm?

I would disagree ginger, I think a calendar day is any day but a working day is mon-fri.....?

Yes that sounds far more sensible, my post was meant to come across as self questioning but I realise now it probably didn’t!
