Purchasing Gift Certificates
Gift Certificates are purchased just like any other item in our store. You can pay for them using the standard payment method(s).
Once your payment has been processed, generally within 24 hours, a code will be sent via email to you, the purchaser of the Gift Certificate. The code will also be available in the Gift Certificates I have purchased section of your Account.
How to Give Gift Certificates
From the Gift Certificates I have purchased section of your Account, you may view your purchased Gift Certificate codes and/or print your Gift Certificates. Your gift recipient only needs the 10-digit gift certificate code to be able to use the value of the gift certificate. Remember that the 10-digit code for each gift certificate released to you will also been emailed to you. Protect the gift certificate code like cash! Once a gift certificate is used, it cannot be restored.
You have 5 days from the date of release in which to access your purchased Gift Certificate codes and/or print your Gift Certificates.
Using Gift Certificates
During the checkout process, on the same page that you select a payment method, there will be a box to enter a Coupon or Gift Certificate Code. Enter the code here, and click the Apply button. The code will be validated and the full amount will be added to your Account as "Account Credit". Your Account Credit will then be applied to your current order total; the "Check this box to Apply Account Credit to payment" box will be automatically selected.
Your current Account Credit total will always be visible in your Shopping Cart box at the top right corner of each page of our site, whenever you are logged into your customer account.
Note that if your Gift Certificate is more than the order total, the excess amount will remain in your Account to be used for future purchases.
Protect the gift certificate code like cash! Once a gift certificate is used, it cannot be restored.
Using Account Credit
If you have remaining funds in your Account from Gift Certificates not used in full, you can use those funds to purchase items in our store. At the checkout stage, an extra box will appear labeled "Check this box to Apply Account Credit to payment". Ticking this box will apply those funds to your order total.
Please note, you will still have to select another payment method if there is not enough in your Account to cover the cost of your purchase. If you have more Account Credit than the total cost of your purchase, the balance will be left in your Account for future purchases.
