Promotions, discounts and promotional codes (collectively "Promotions") are valid for the specified time period for online purchases of merchandise only and may be used one time only unless otherwise stated.
One time use Promotions must be used in their entirety in a single purchase. Any amounts not redeemed in the applicable purchase will be forfeited.

Promotions do not apply to Gift Cards, shipping, GST or duties or similar services.
Promotions cannot be applied retroactively to previously placed orders or to orders that have been adjusted.
Free shipping promotions are valid for Australian standard ground shipping within the Australian mainland and Tasmania.
For promotions requiring a minimum order size, charges for shipping and credits from Gift Cards do not count towards the minimum order size requirement.
For promotions where you must buy 1 (or more) item(s) to get a reduction on the second (additional) item(s), the discount will be applied at checkout to the lower priced item.
If merchandise was purchased with a Promotion and subsequently returned, you will be issued a credit or refund at the promotional price and, if the Promotion has expired, it cannot then be applied to a replacement or future order.

Orders cancelled before shipment will still have this authorisation held. Some credit cards may be subject to a $1 authorisation check which will be released back to you. Some orders may be subject to small charge verification before they are approved for shipment. In these cases a small amount between $0 and $1 will be held on your credit card and you will be asked to confirm this amount to validate your payment.
