As long as the coupon remains in house, that is permissible. You can buy at reception and then obtain a refund as you leave. If that is done I see no problem.
That would be a crime of forgery if you did not have authority to print the coupon from the business. Section 256 Crimes Act says
(1)Every one is liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 10 years who makes a false document with the intention of using it to obtain any property, privilege, service, pecuniary advantage, benefit, or valuable consideration.
(2) Every one is liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 3 years who makes a false document, knowing it to be false, with the intent that it in any way be used or acted upon, whether in New Zealand or elsewhere, as genuine.
(3) Forgery is complete as soon as the document is made with the intent described in subsection (1) or with the knowledge and intent described in subsection (2).
