5. PRICING, TAXES, ORDER REQUIREMENTS, GIFT CARDS, AND PROMOTIONS
Pricing and Reported Savings
RBWDirect continuously works to offer competitive prices on everything we carry and we offer a Low Price Guarantee here. In certain instances and for certain products, we also report suggested savings as a percentage. The percentage savings we report are based on a comparison of prices for bulk or wholesale sizes of products available on the RBWDirect Sites against the prices for retail sizes available on national e-commerce retail websites and mobile applications.
Items sold on the RBWDirect Sites or through the RBWDirect Services may be subject to tax or deposit fees. In most cases, prior to submitting your purchase request, you will see an estimate of the tax to be collected on your order. This tax amount will depend on various factors, including the items purchased, the shipment destination, and, in certain circumstances, the identity of the seller (if not RBWDirect). In certain limited circumstances and for certain third-party sellers, the tax amount may be included in the price of a product.
Unless specifically indicated on a product’s description page, the checkout page or items sold through the Express Service (see below), RBWDirect is the seller of items purchased on the RBWDirect Sites or through the RBWDirect Services. Any applicable tax on those items will be applied to the item price you pay for taxable items, less any savings amounts.
With respect to those products that are not sold by RBWDirect, such products will be subject to tax based on the sales tax collection obligations of the applicable seller. Applicable tax on such orders will be applied to the item price indicated by the seller. For these items, savings amounts will not always reduce the price at which tax is charged.
RBWDirect only ships to the 48 contiguous states and the District of Columbia. We do not ship to Alaska or Hawaii. Other than Express orders, shipments are delivered by UPS®, FedEx®, or other private courier. Express orders and shipments of Alcoholic Beverages (as defined below) are shipped separately from other RBWDirect products sold through the RBWDirect Services or on the RBWDirect Sites.
The exact delivery date of your order may depend on several factors, including, without limitation, the date and time you place your order, the schedules and processes of our shipping partners, holiday schedules, weather, and other factors. Even though we try to anticipate delays, we cannot predict or always prepare for delays caused by carriers, mistakes in delivery or shipment information, changes to orders, strikes, bad weather, or other similar circumstances. If there is a delay, we will do whatever we can to help move things along, although we cannot promise we’ll be able to resolve the delay. If you have questions about your delivery, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Minimum Order Requirements and Free Shipping
We may, in our sole discretion, set and adjust minimum (or maximum) quantity and/or price requirements for any order or attempted order placed on the RBWDirect Sites.
We may also, in our sole discretion, set and adjust minimum (or maximum) quantity and/or price requirements for any user to receive free shipping on any order placed on the RBWDirect Sites.

RBWDirect determines, in its sole discretion, the method and timing for the application or implementation of any Promo Code, Cash Rewards, referral credit, discount, promotional credits or other Promotion and/or any other restrictions as may be determined and communicated by RBWDirect in its sole discretion. Only valid promotional codes provided or promoted by RBWDirect will be honored at checkout. Theft, reproduction, duplicate requests and/or other behavior intended to circumvent the proper redemption of promotional codes is prohibited and may constitute fraud. Discount codes must be entered at checkout. Certain Promotions shall only be applicable to first orders. Unless otherwise specified in the terms and conditions of the particular Promotion, Promotions shall never apply to orders placed through business accounts that utilize separate credit terms agreed to with RBWDirect.
All RBWDirect users may have access to free product samples, as offered from time-to-time by RBWDirect, in its sole discretion. Product samples are subject to availability and may be replaced by RBWDirect with substitutes. To receive free product samples, you must add the requested samples to your cart on one of the RBWDirect Sites prior to checking out. If samples are not added to your cart before checkout, the samples will not be included in your order. Product samples cannot be added to previously placed orders.
In certain circumstances, all of the products in your RBWDirect order may be fulfilled solely by a third-party or Express Shopper. In such circumstances, RBWDirect shall be under no obligation to ship any free samples. We’re the buy-in-bulk business – we try not to ship such small packages!
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, RBWDirect may, in RBWDirect's sole discretion, create promotional codes that may be redeemed for discounts, credit, or other features or benefits related to the RBWDirect Services, RBWDirect Sites, or third-party provider's services, subject to terms that RBWDirect establishes on a per promotional code basis (“Promo Codes”).

As a user, you agree to receive newsletters and promotional emails, including, without limitation, certain third-party offers.
Promotional, gift, or offer codes and Gift Cards
From time-to-time, we may offer qualified consumers “promotional codes,” “gift codes,” or “offer codes” through a variety of promotional activities and communications (collectively referred to herein as “promotional codes”) that are redeemable towards a purchase on the RBWDirect Sites or through the RBWDirect Services, while supplies last, and subject to certain merchandise exclusions or any other restrictions, as may be determined and communicated by us in our sole discretion. Only valid promotional codes provided or promoted by us will be honored at checkout. Other codes supplied or promoted by third parties unauthorized by us (including any unauthorized third-party websites) will not be considered valid. Unless otherwise stated in a particular promotional code’s terms and conditions, each promotional code is non-transferable and valid for single use (limit one per order) on an item (or items) of merchandise as determined by RBWDirect. Promotional codes cannot be used towards purchase of non-branded merchandise, packaging or applicable taxes. Promotional codes must be entered in the “Apply Promo Code/Gift Card” field at checkout. Promotional codes are valid through the RBWDirect Sites only. We are not responsible for lost, stolen or corrupted promotional codes or any unauthorized use of promotional codes. Promotional codes cannot be redeemed for cash or any cash equivalent; no substitutions or credits allowed. The dollar value of any promotional code will not be refunded or credited back if any or all of the merchandise is returned. Expiry dates may apply to each promotional code. Promotional codes are void if copied, transferred, sold, exchanged or expired, and where prohibited. Requests not complying with all promotional code requirements will not be honored.
From time-to-time, in our sole discretion, we may offer “Gift Cards” for purchase by our customers. Gift Cards are redeemable only on the RBWDirect Sites and are subject to the terms and conditions in effect at the time of purchase. When available, the current Gift Card terms, if any, are available here. Gift Cards are non-transferable and do not expire. Gift Cards are not returnable or refundable for cash except in states where required by law. For example, if a balance of less than $5 remains on a Gift Card owned by a New Jersey resident following redemption, upon such New Jersey resident’s request to email@example.com, we will refund the balance.

You agree, to the fullest extent permitted by law, to indemnify and hold RBWDirect and its affiliates, officers, directors, representatives, members, shareholders, agents, suppliers, distributors, employees, service or third party providers, contractors, subcontractors, and licensors harmless from any claim, demand, damages, penalties, fines, costs, amounts paid in settlement, liabilities, obligations, taxes, liens, losses, expenses, fees and court costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses incurred in connection with any litigation made by any third party arising from: (i) your use of and access of the RBWDirect Services or the RBWDirect Sites; (ii) your violation of any term of the Terms; (iii) your violation of law or of any third party right, including without limitation infringement of the rights of a third party or of any copyright, property, or privacy right; (iv) any claims resulting from content you supply; (v) you unconscionable commercial proacts; or (vi) any other claim that your use of the RBWDirect Services or the RBWDirect Sites caused damage to a third party. RBWDirect reserves the right, at its own expense, to assume exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you and, in any case, you agree to cooperate with RBWDirect if and as requested by RBWDirect in the defense of such matter.
14. RISK OF LOSS
All goods and products purchased by you from RBWDirect are delivered pursuant to a shipment contract by a third-party package delivery company. We shall use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the performance of such third-party suppliers and shipping companies, but shall not be responsible for their failure or for their other acts or omissions.
15. MODIFICATIONS TO THE RBWDirect SERVICES, THE RBWDirect SITES, AND TERMS
RBWDirect reserves the right to terminate, modify, cancel or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, all or any portion of the RBWDirect Services and/or the RBWDirect Sites with or without notice. RBWDirect also reserves the right to terminate, discontinue, modify or cancel any or all Promotions, including, without limitation Promo Codes and the Cash Rewards program, and/or the Terms, terms, any policy, FAQ, and/or guideline pertaining to the use of the RBWDirect Services, the RBWDirect Sites, and/or any Promotion, product, or service at any time and in its sole discretion without notice to you. Any changes or modifications to any of the foregoing will be effective immediately upon posting the revisions on the RBWDirect Sites or through the RBWDirect Services. As stated above, your use of the RBWDirect Sites, RBWDirect Services, any Promotion, Cash Rewards, RBWDirect Bold or any other product or service confirms your acceptance of the Terms and any such changes or modifications.
16. LEGAL COMPLIANCE
You represent and warrant that (i) you not located in a country that is subject to a U.S. Government embargo, or that has been designated by the U.S. Government as a “terrorist supporting” country; and (ii) you are not listed on any U.S. Government list of prohibited or restricted parties.
17. TERMINATION AND EFFECT OF TERMINATION
In addition to any other legal or equitable remedies, we may, without prior notice to you, immediately terminate the Terms and/or or terminate or revoke any or all your rights granted under the Terms. Upon any such termination, you shall immediately cease all access to and use of the RBWDirect Services and the RBWDirect Sites and we shall, in addition to any other legal or equitable remedies, immediately revoke all usernames, password(s), and account identification issued to you and deny your access to and use of the RBWDirect Services, the RBWDirect Sites, any Promotions, products, or other services in whole or in part. Any termination of the Terms shall not affect the respective rights and obligations (including without limitation, payment obligations) of the parties arising before the date of termination.
The provisions of the Terms are intended to be interpreted in a manner which makes them valid, legal, and enforceable. If any provision of the Terms is found to be partially or wholly invalid, illegal or unenforceable, such provision shall be modified or restricted to the extent, and in the manner, necessary to render it valid, legal, and enforceable. It is expressly understood and agreed between the parties that such modification or restriction may be accomplished unilaterally by us, or alternatively, by disposition of an arbitrator or a court of law. If such provision cannot under any circumstances be so modified or restricted, it shall be excised from the Terms without affecting the validity, legality or enforceability of any of the remaining provisions.
19. GOVERNING LAW AND JURISDICTION
The laws of the State of California apply to everything relating to your relationship and dealings with RBWDirect.
This means that the Terms, any and all disputes, claims and controversies arising out of or relating to the RBWDirect Services or the RBWDirect Sites shall be governed by and construed exclusively in accordance with the laws of the State of California, without giving effect to its conflict of laws provisions.
20. TYPOGRAPHICAL ERRORS
In the event a product is listed at an incorrect price or with incorrect information due to typographical error or error in pricing or product information received from our suppliers, we shall have the right to refuse or cancel any orders placed for product listed at the incorrect price. We shall have the right to refuse or cancel any such orders, even if the order has been confirmed and your credit card charged. If your credit card has already been charged for the purchase and your order is canceled, we shall, within a reasonably practicable amount of time, issue a credit to your credit card account in the amount of the charge.
