Through the Site and Services, Members can purchase Deals offered by Merchants and then receive Vouchers demonstrating that the Holder has acquired goods, services and/or other items provided by Merchants at a promotional rate. Any Voucher for a Deal purchased through the Site and Services is only redeemable the good(s), service(s) and/or other item(s) identified on the Voucher by the applicable Merchant. You acknowledge and agree that the Merchant, not Plum District, is the seller of the DEAL and the goods, services and/or other items and is solely responsible for redeeming any Voucher FOR A DEAL purchased through the Site and Services. If you, as a Member, choose to enter into a transaction with a Merchant through the Site and Services and purchase a Deal from the Merchant via your Account, you are agreeing to any terms, conditions and restrictions associated with such Deal. In connection with your purchase, you will be asked to provide customary billing information such as name, billing address and credit card information either to Plum District or its third party payment processor. You agree to pay Plum District for all purchases of Deals in connection with your Plum District Account and you hereby authorize the collection of such amounts on behalf of the Merchant by charging the credit card provided as part of your order, either directly by Plum District or indirectly, via a third party online payment processor. All fees are payable in United States dollars. Once your transaction is complete you will receive a confirmation email that includes or constitutes you’re the Voucher for your Deal which you can print for use. You will also be able to print the Voucher by accessing your Plum District Account. All amounts paid for Deals are non-refundable and credits will not be given for any unused Vouchers unless otherwise required by law.
As noted, the holder and issuer of the Voucher for a Deal is the Merchant and Plum District is not responsible for, nor will Plum District have any liability with respect to: (i) any goods, services and/or other items offered or provided by a Merchant in connection with a Deal or otherwise, including, but not limited to, any unclaimed property liability arising from unredeemed Vouchers; or (ii) any third party claims in connection with, or arising out of any such goods, services and/or other items, or a Member’s use or possession thereof. Compliance with state statutes, codes or laws applicable to Deals and Vouchers is the responsibility of the Merchants. The applicability and compliance with any relevant statutes, codes or laws is solely determined and consummated by the Merchant, and Plum District has no responsibility in this regard. By way of example, the Merchant, not Plum District, is responsible for compliance with all applicable laws with respect to the expiration and redemption of Vouchers.
You, as a Member, are solely responsible for your use and redemption of Vouchers, including making any reservations with the Merchant, if applicable. Further, you will be responsible for, and will promptly pay, all applicable taxes and duties of any kind (including, but not limited to, sales, use and/or transaction taxes) associated with your acquisition of goods, services or other items using a Voucher. Unless otherwise stated on the Voucher, the terms accompanying the Voucher or Deal or required by law, the following additional terms apply to all Deals purchased through the Site and Services:
Most Vouchers have two separate values: (a) the “paid value” and (b) the “promotional value”. The paid value is the amount that you paid for the Deal; the promotional value is an amount in excess of the amount you paid for the Deal. For instance, if you pay $10 for a Deal, and you can redeem the Voucher for $25 at a Merchant, the paid value is $10 and the promotional value is $15.
Except for Deal Vouchers that are redeemable for an event that is to take place on a specific dates or dates (e.g., a concert, art show, cruise) or an event or venue only open for a limited time (e.g., Halloween haunted house) (collectively “Dated Events”), the paid value of a Deal Voucher will not expire. Merchants may, however, specify that the promotional value may expire after a specified date. Any applicable promotional value expiration date will be printed on the Voucher.
If your Voucher is redeemable for a certain value of merchandise (e.g., pay $10 for a Deal and the Voucher can be used to obtain $25 in merchandise), you may redeem your Voucher over multiple visits. However, when you make a purchase, the purchases will be subtracted from the paid value portion of your Voucher first. If your Deal is redeemable for a specific item or service (e.g., pay $10 for a Voucher exchangeable for a manicure), after the promotional value expiration date an unused Voucher is redeemable for the paid value (e.g., $10) at the Merchant.
Vouchers for Dated Events must be redeemed before or on the event date since the Voucher will not be redeemable thereafter.
Unless prohibited by law, you agree that any violation of any Merchant's terms and conditions may result in: (i) forfeiture of any amounts paid for such Deal and (ii) denial of access to or use of the applicable product, service or Merchant property or removal therefrom.
You may request a refund of the paid value (only) of a Deal from Plum District if you have not redeemed the Voucher, in the following instances:
Plum District reserves the right, in its sole and exclusive discretion, to investigate whether any refund request is improperly made (including, but not limited to, if you redeemed your Voucher and are also requesting a refund). Plum District also reserves the right, in its sole and exclusive discretion, to offer refunds in other instances but is not obligated to do so. If after your experience with a Merchant you are unsatisfied for any reason, or if you have any problems, claims or questions related to Vouchers, please contact us.
Refunds that are requested within seven (7) calendar days of the Deal’s purchase will be made to the payment device used to purchase the Voucher. In all other instances, you may elect to have the refund issued to you via a check.
To make a refund request, email Plum District at email@example.com and provide us with a description of the issue and/or comments regarding your experience.
In addition to obtaining a refund from Plum District pursuant to the terms stated in these Terms, each Merchant may in its sole discretion offer a refund. Plum District cannot and does not guarantee the issuance of any refund by a Merchant.
As a Member, by referring your friends to the Services or by engaging in other activities via the Services, you may participate in the Plum District Referral Program, which is a loyalty program we offer to our Members. If you choose to participate in the Referral Program, for each friend you refer to Plum District for which a Qualifying Referral (defined below) is completed, you may be able to receive Plum Dollars (defined below) (each a “Referral Reward”). “Plum Dollars” are “points” that may be applied as credits toward future purchases made by Members via the Site and Services. You may earn up to 100 Plum Dollars per year across all Plum District referral programs.
In order to receive a Referral Reward, each of the following requirements must be met (collectively, a “Qualifying Referral”): (i) you must log in to your Account on the Site and select the “Refer My Friends” link; (ii) you must share the link provided with friends via Facebook and Twitter, by copying and pasting the unique referral link generated via the Services, or by sending the unique referral link generated via the Services in an email via the Services to your friends; (iii) a friend who clicks the link on Facebook, Twitter or otherwise or clicks the link contained in the email must create a Plum District Account and become a Member; and (iv) after becoming a Member, the friend must complete a purchase of a Plum Deal through the Site or Services. You may not earn Plum Dollars through the Referral Program and at the same time earn revenue via the Affiliate Program. Any violation may result in removal of Plum Dollars or account cancellation.
Satisfaction of a Qualifying Referral and the Referral Reward you receive will be reflected in your Account in a commercially reasonable amount of time after the Qualifying Referral has been completed. The Referral Rewards you accrue will be displayed in your Account profile page. Referral Rewards can be accrued solely by you and you may not earn Referral Rewards by permitting another individual to use your Account. Referral Rewards accrued in multiple Accounts may not be combined into one Account. You may not earn Referral Rewards by creating multiple Accounts. By acquiring Referral Rewards, you agree and acknowledge that Plum District is granting you a limited, revocable license to a digital item, and that Referral Rewards are not your personal property. You may not obtain any cash or money in exchange for Referral Rewards. Except as explicitly provided herein, Referral Rewards are non-transferable. Members are responsible for keeping track of the Referral Rewards in their Accounts.
Plum Dollars may only be redeemed for purchase of Deals via the Site and Services. You may only redeem Plum Dollars after the Plum Dollars are reflected in your Account. The scope, variety, and type of services and products that you may obtain by redeeming Plum Dollars can change at any time. Plum Dollars may not be used towards purchases of Plum Steals.
As of April 14, 2011 and subject to applicable law, all Plum Dollars expire six (6) months from the date following the last credit to your Plum Dollar Account. If for some reason you believe that there is a discrepancy regarding your balance of Plum Dollars, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Plum District may require to you to submit additional information in order to make a determination regarding your balance. All decisions regarding your balance will be final and at Plum District’s sole discretion. You are responsible for any tax consequences, if any, that may result from your redemption or use of Plum Dollars.
Without limiting any other terms of these Terms and subject to applicable law, all Plum Dollars are forfeited if your Plum District Account is terminated or suspended for any reason, in Plum District’s sole discretion, or if Plum District discontinues providing the Site and Services or the Referral Program.
