Probably should ask whoever's making the offer. They're the only ones that would know for sure.

Generally it is inclusive of the date mentioned.

I'd suggest that if it doesn't have a time, then it would probably be available the entire day of the end date.

Ah, one of the many annoyances of advertising. If I were writing, till would mean prior to, and midnight 23/06/2020 would mean the offer expired at the start of 23/06/2020, i.e. 00:00 23/06.

 

On the other hand, common usage is just plain wrong, and I'd expect complaints from customers and probably regulatory authorities.

I would agree with that.

 

Also it is a bit like Due Date for a bill... You have the whole day specified to get the payment made.
