TIPPING, TAXES, CHANGE
When using a certificate at a restaurant or business where a gratuity is appropriate, please make sure you leave a tip. The minimum acceptable tip is 15% of the total retail value of the bill. A tip of 20% would be even better. You must pay all applicable sales taxes. Special Note: No change will be given if you fail to use the entire amount of the certificate-no exceptions. The unused portion of a certificate is not applicable towards the tip.
LOST, STOLEN AND MUTILATED CERTIFICATES
Lost, stolen and mutilated certificates have no value. Once you take possession of a certificate you are responsible for its safety and well being. Certificates cannot be replaced under any circumstances.
Keep the certificates you purchase in a safe place until you are ready to use them.
WRMN reserves the right to limit quantities. All certificates are subject to any restrictions or conditions listed on them. Examples of such restrictions or conditions could include: "One certificate per table, not valid on sale items, good Sunday through Thursday, Blackout Dates apply, etc."
These restrictions must be observed. Before purchasing gift certificates please review them by asking a Radio Shopping Show host or associate to explain any restrictions.
In the unlikely event of a complication involving a Radio Shopping Show or Radio Travel Show certificate, please contact The Radio Shopping Show Coordinator or an associate rather than the business in question. This will help you rapidly resolve any issue.
We encourage you to try different businesses and not to use a certificate every time you visit a given business. Keep in mind that The Radio Shopping Show exists to introduce you to new businesses and save you money. Whenever possible please spend over and above the value of the gift certificate. Be a repeat customer.
When using certificates requiring a reservation, we encourage you to plan ahead and not wait until the last minute. Plan ahead. This will help you prevent any problems.
If a valid certificate does not work, please contact us prior to the expiration date listed on the certificate. At our option we will exchange it for another certificate of equal purchase price. For example, if you purchased a $20 certificate for $8 dollars, you would be credited $8 towards the purchase of another certificate(s).
If you have any questions about this policy, please ask a Radio Shopping Show host/associate or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org .
