We may from time to time offer a plan whereby customers may make a payment on account as advance payment for goods in return for additional bonus credit which may be used to pay for applicable goods.
3.1. Piggybank Rewards™
The system of payment on account and bonus credit may be referred to as "Prepay" for promotional purposes. We may change the name of this promotion from time to time but these terms and conditions shall apply to any scheme involving advance payment for goods.
3.2. Account information
Prepay credit and bonus credit amounts are separately recorded and the total balance of credit is shown in your accounts under credit history.
3.3. Applicable goods
Applicable goods means any printed products manufactured by us such as cards and posters. Bonus credit will not be applied against other items such as postage and packing, CDs, flowers or other gifts. Non applicable goods will be offset entirely against the cash balance on the account.
Prepay balances cannot be used to pay for CDs, flowers or other gifts. Even if you have a credit balance in your Prepay account this will not be applied again a purchase of a CD, flowers or other gifts which must be paid for by credit card.
(We have to impose this rule because the Prepay discount is larger than the profit margin on the CDs, flowers and other gifts. We love our customers, but not that much!)
3.4. Drawdown of cash and credit balances
At the point of checkout our system will check your balance of Prepay and bonus credit. Any applicable goods will be paid for by drawing down the Prepay credit and bonus credit balance pro rata.
3.5. Our liability to you
Any payment made on account shall be deemed as a payment for goods and services to be ordered from us. After the initial refund period described below our liability to you will be to provide goods and services to value of the account balance. Cash balances will not be returned except in cases where the customer has received defective goods or service and requested a refund of the unused prepay cash balance held on the account.
3.6. Balance reminders and expiry of inactive account balances
If you do not place any orders for a 6 month period we will send an e-mail to the address in your Account Details to remind you of your balance. This will be repeated at 12 months and 18 months. When a period of 24 months has passed with no orders placed we will assume that your account is no longer active and the Prepay balance will expire.
If you change your mind after making a payment on account you may request a refund by calling customer services within 14 days of the transaction. In such cases the amount refunded will be the sum of the original payment less the value of any goods bought on account. Refunds can only be made to the credit card account used to make the original purchase.
