Any orders not requiring shipping will need to be picked up at the location selected when your profile was created.
When you finish your order, your confirmation will contain instructions with where to pick up, or if being shipped, will display the shipping address.
Can I make a purchase without setting up a user profile?
No, all purchases must now be made using a user profile.
Why do I need to set up a user profile?
User profiles are required for security purposes and to allow you to log in and store your contact details.
Can I set up more than one user profile using the same credit card?
You can only set up one profile for any credit card in your name.
I tried to set up a profile and received a message that my card information was duplicated.
You can only set up one profile for any credit card in your name. For this reason it is advised that you not let anyone set up a profile using a card in your name as it may interfere with your ability to create a profile.
I successfully set up my profile, but my transaction is being declined. Why can’t I buy anything?
When your profile is set up a soft credit check is done against the card to verify that it is valid before storing it in a profile. If your transactions are being declined there may be conditions on your card that are preventing the internet order. Contact your card issuer for more information on why you are being declined.
How do I retrieve my gift certificate?
Certificates can either be picked up or shipped. If you are picking up your certificates, they will be picked up from the region address you selected when creating your profile. Pick up addresses will also be displayed in your confirmation email.
I can’t remember my password, how do I retrieve it?
There is a “Forgot Password” link on our login page. You will need to provide your username, email address and answer the security question you created with your profile to reset it.
I can’t remember my username, how do I retrieve it?
There is a “Forgot Username” link on our login page. You will need to provide your first name, email and date of birth to retrieve it.
How long do I have to retrieve my gift certificate?
How many certificates can I purchase?
Up to 2 certificates of each offer listed may be purchased per day.
Are there any conditions on the certificates?
Certificates have no cash surrender value, one gift certificate per purchase at retail location. Any other conditions will be listed on the certificate.
I completed my purchase. Why haven’t I received confirmation in my email?
If you haven’t received email confirmation of your purchase, check your spam filter and check to make sure your mail provider’s service is not “down”. Also, check with your system administrator or look at your firewall setting to ensure that you can receive the confirmation. Sometimes, a mail message may become corrupted and will be “thrown out” altogether, or a mail service can be down and omit messages. If you have checked the above and still are concerned about your confirmation, contact our support email.
I tried to purchase a certificate, and there were some left on the screen, but message came up telling me I didn’t get one. Why did this happen?
The window that shows how many gift certificates are left, updates every 15 seconds, during that time there’s the potential for many people to try and purchase a certificate. Our process works on a basis of first come first serve.
When do the purchase buttons show up and how does my computer display them?
The buttons get added to the website right at 10:00 a.m., but if you are waiting for the server to automatically update your open page, it might not be happening quick enough to allow you to purchase a gift certificate. You can try clicking your browser refresh button right at 10:00 a.m., or even a few seconds before. This refreshes the counter on the page.
Can I return my gift certificate after I have purchased it?
All sales are final and no refunds will be issued.
I pressed the complete transaction button and I received an error message. Did my transaction go through?
Occasionally, due to heavy traffic on the Internet, a communication error can occur, generating the error on our pages. Our system will generate these errors if it detects anything abnormal to help protect against fraud. If you did not receive an email confirmation that your credit card has been charged for the purchase, then the transaction did not go through (see Spam Filters, Firewalls, Corrupted Messages).
When I click the purchase button on the home page, nothing happens or a blank page or blank form comes up, why can’t I purchase a gift certificate?
This can happen for a couple of reasons. Your browser may have timed out or there may be a connection error between your Internet Service Provider’s Server and our Servers. Also, you may be using a browser that’s not supported.
What Browsers are supported?
In general, we support the last two versions of Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari and Chrome.
Do I need to accept cookies and do I need to accept pop-up windows?
Yes, you need to accept cookies and you must make sure that any pop-up blockers are turned off. Once you have completed your transaction, you can turn pop-up blockers back on.
How do I know that I’ve purchased a gift certificate?
You should receive confirmation in your email of your purchase. You should print out this confirmation as you will need to present it when you pick up your certificate. If you are not receiving confirmation see Spam Filters, Firewalls, Corrupted Messages in this FAQ.
I finished the purchasing process, and the screens told me that I purchased a certificate but it did not email me a confirmation?
On rare occasions communication errors between the process Server and the payment Server can cause a purchase request to be terminated, or if the window is closed too soon once the credit card number is submitted this can also cause the transaction to be terminated. In both cases this is done to prevent fraud or accidental purchases. If you believe that your purchase was successful and don’t have a confirmation email, see the FAQ questions dealing with email confirmation.

How often does the remaining gift certificate window update?
