If you wish to purchase Vouchers, products or services described on the Website, you may be asked to supply certain information, including payment card or other payment information. By providing such information, you represent and warrant that it is accurate, complete, and current. By making any such purchase, you agree to pay all charges (including shipping and handling charges) incurred by users of your payment card or other payment mechanism at the prices in effect when such charges are incurred. You are responsible for paying any taxes applicable to such purchase.
We reserve the right to refuse any order for any reason. Orders may be delayed or canceled if we are not given completely accurate information and/or are unable to contact the person who has placed the order and/or is the primary accountholder for the order.
By placing an order for a Voucher from a Merchant through the Website, you make an offer to purchase on the following stated terms and conditions. The Voucher you purchase is redeemable for goods and services from the participating Merchant. Each deal will have specific terms and restrictions associated with the particular Voucher sold on behalf of Merchants. Any terms specific to a particular deal will be presented at the time you commit to purchase the particular deal and will be stated on the printable Voucher. If you are unsure of any terms, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org prior to making your purchase. Unless prohibited by applicable law, all deal specific terms will supersede any inconsistent terms contained in this Agreement. Unless otherwise stated on a particular specific Voucher or required by applicable law, the following terms shall apply to all Vouchers: (1) Vouchers have no cash value; (2) no cash back will be issued for partial redemption of the paid portion of a Voucher, except as required by law (the paid portion is the amount charged to your payment method); (3) no cash back or credit will be issued for partial redemption of the promotional portion of a Voucher (the promotional portion of a Voucher is the amount of goods or services you will receive beyond the amount paid if used by the specific expiration date); (4) use of a Voucher for alcoholic beverages is at the sole discretion of the Merchant (which may be limited by applicable state law), unless otherwise noted on the Voucher; (5) Vouchers cannot be combined with any other coupons or promotions unless otherwise noted in the Voucher; (6) Vouchers cannot be used for taxes, tips, prior balances, shipping or handling, as applicable; (7) neither the Merchant or we are responsible for lost or stolen Vouchers; (8) duplicate use, sale or trade of a Voucher is prohibited, except as required by law; (9) unless otherwise stated at the time a Voucher is purchased, the Voucher price does not include sales, value added or use taxes, which may be charged to you separately by the Merchant at the time you redeem the Voucher; (10) Vouchers are redeemable in their entirety and on a one time basis only and therefore may not be redeemed incrementally; and (11) any attempt at redemption inconsistent with these terms and conditions will render the specific Voucher void.
It is the Merchant’s responsibility to honor the Voucher in compliance with applicable law. As issuer of the Voucher, the Merchant shall be fully responsible for any and all injuries, illnesses, damages, claims, liabilities and costs suffered by or in respect of a customer, caused in whole or in part by the Merchant or its products and services, as well as for any unclaimed property liability arising from unredeemed or partially redeemed Vouchers.
Each Voucher will contain a specific expiration date, printed on the Voucher, at which time the promotional portion of a deal expires. If the expiration of the paid value of the Voucher as of the date printed on the Voucher is prohibited under the law of the jurisdiction in which the Merchant is located, then the Voucher shall expire as follows: the promotional portion of the Voucher will expire on the date printed on the Voucher, and the paid portion of the Voucher will expire ﬁve (5) years from the date the Voucher is issued, except to the extent applicable law requires that the Merchant extend the period in which the Voucher may be redeemed.
According to applicable law, the Merchant may be responsible for allowing you to redeem your Voucher for the cash value based on the money you actually paid for your Voucher (i.e. if you paid $20 for a Voucher which gives you $50 of value to the Merchant, the cash value that you paid is $20, not $50), for a period of time that extends beyond the expiration date on the Voucher. While the expiration date on the Voucher dictates the last date that you can use your Voucher at Merchant for the promotional offer stated on the Website, applicable law may provide that the Merchant is responsible for honoring the cash value that you paid for your Voucher for a period of time beyond the expiration date stated on the Voucher. In other words, you should be allowed to redeem the cash value (or purchase price) of your Voucher up until the later of: (1) the Voucher’s expiration date; or (2) the minimum length of time allowed by applicable law for a Voucher to expire. In the event that you have an expired Voucher and would like to redeem it for the price you paid to acquire it, please contact the Merchant. Once again, the Merchant should allow such redemption if applicable law requires it, and we have instructed the Merchant to do so. If you have gone to the Merchant and the Merchant has refused to redeem the cash value of your expired Voucher, and if applicable law entitles you to such redemption, then please contact us and we may refund the purchase price of the Voucher in either U.S. Dollars or credit for purchases of future Vouchers from our Website.
If you have already purchased a Voucher, and you wish to cancel your Voucher and receive a refund of its Purchase Price, the Website retains discretion to grant or deny your refund request. In three circumstances, the Website will automatically grant your refund request. First, the Website will grant your request if you make your refund request within five (5) days after purchasing your Voucher. Second, the Website will grant your refund request if a Merchant refuses to accept your Voucher. The denied Voucher must be valid at the time of the Merchant’s refusal in order to entitle you to a refund. Third, the Website will grant your refund request if the Merchant ceases operations before you redeem your voucher. Your Voucher must be valid at the time that the Merchant ceases operations in order to entitle you to a refund. All refund requests that do not fall into the three categories above will be evaluated on an individual basis and Website retains the right to grant or deny each request at its discretion.
"Credits” are non-monetary payment units issued to customers. Credits may be redeemed to purchase a voucher sold on the Website. Credits have no cash value. Each Credit may be redeemed by customers on the Website for $1 of credit toward the purchase of a voucher or vouchers sold by the Website.
We may issue Credits at our sole discretion. We may, at our sole discretion, refuse to accept Credits for a given deal or offer. Credits cannot be returned in exchange for their cash value.

CERTAIN JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF CERTAIN DAMAGES.

To the extent permitted under applicable laws, you hereby release us from any and all claims or liability related to any product or service of a Merchant, any action or inaction by Merchant, including Merchant’s failure to comply with applicable law and/or failure to abide by the terms of a Voucher. In connection with the foregoing release, you hereby waive California Civil Code Section 1542 (and any similar provision in any other jurisdiction) which states: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which, if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”
This Agreement is effective upon your unequivocal acceptance as set forth herein and shall continue in full force until terminated. You agree that we, in our sole discretion, may terminate your use of the Website or any part thereof upon prior notice, and remove and discard any Content, in the event you violate this Agreement. You agree that we may immediately suspend your account and your access to the Website or any part thereof in order to conduct an investigation in the event we believe you have violated this Agreement or if we determine that you are a repeat infringer of another’s intellectual property or other rights. We may also, in our sole discretion and at any time, discontinue providing the Website, any part thereof, any Content or any products or services advertised thereon, with or without notice.

These terms will not be assignable or transferable by you without our prior written consent.
