Terms of Sale

BestBuys provides consumers with opportunities to purchase products and services from third party merchants (“Merchants”) with a time limited promotional added value (a “Deal”). Merchants are willing to offer attractive promotionals in order to reach the BestBuys users.

By placing an order for a given Deal, you make an offer to BestBuys to purchase the Deals you have selected on the terms, restrictions and conditions associated with the Deal (such as the Fine Print), subject to the initial requirements for that Deal being met. The Deal is not yours until we notify you via email that the requisite initial requirements have been met for a given Deal. The Voucher you purchase is redeemable for goods or services by the seller of such goods and services, hereinafter defined as “Merchant.” The Merchant, not BestBuys, is the seller of the goods and services and is solely responsible for redeeming any Coupon you purchase. BestBuys sells Vouceher that can be redeemed in connection with your purchase of the goods or services from Merchant.

You are required to create an account in order to purchase any Deal. This is required so we can provide you with easy access to print your Voucher(s), view your past purchases, view your referral credits earned, modify your preferences, and to ensure permissible use of the Deal. Each User is allowed to have only one active account. Each Paypal account used for making payment will be uniquely linked to a specific BestBuys account. Breech of these conditions could result in account termination.

In addition, the following rules apply to all Deals:

Merchant Deals may be applied only to products and/or services sold by Merchant, and may not be applied to GST, service charges, shipping or handling charges unless otherwise noted. Currently the sale of Vouchers by us is not subject to VAT. If Singapore VAT law changes we reserve the right to charge you VAT in addition to the price for the Vouchers.
The Voucher (including, but not limited to, any discounts provided by the Voucher) expires on the date specified on the Voucher.
No cash value for any Merchant Deal.
No cash back upon redemption or at any other time.
The issuing of credit is at the sole discretion of the Merchant unless otherwise required by law.
If you redeem the Voucher for less than its face value, you will not be entitled to a credit, cash or new Voucher equal to the difference between the face value and the amount you redeemed, unless otherwise required by law. For example, if you paid $40 for Voucher which entitles you to purchase $80 of product and you make a purchase for $70, you will not be entitled to a credit or cash equal to the difference between the $80 face value and the amount you redeemed. You will not have any redemption value.
Neither BestBuys nor the Merchant is responsible for lost or stolen Voucher or Voucher’s unique reference or serial number.
Voucher cannot be combined with any other gift certificates, third party certificates, coupons, or promotions.
Reproduction, sale or trade of this certificate is prohibited unless done so in compliance with the law.
Any attempted redemption not consistent with these terms and conditions will render the Voucher null and void to the extent prohibited by law.
As a condition of Purchase, we reserve the right to send you administrative and promotional emails. We may also send you information regarding your account activity and purchases, as well as updates about the Site and Service and Vouchers as well as other promotional offers.
Other restrictions may be noted within the Deal.
Once we send you the Voucher, you may cancel the transaction at any time within 7 working days from the day after the day that you receive the Voucher (where a working day is any day that is not a Saturday, Sunday or English public holiday). If you do want to cancel, you must do so by sending us an email to tell us you are cancelling to: support@bestbuys.com.sg or writing to us or sending us a fax – in each case, always provided of course that you have not yet redeemed the Voucher.
BestBuys takes no responsibility for the services or products for which BestBuys Vouchers may be redeemed. BestBuys makes no warranty to the BestBuys End Users for the quality, safety, usability or other aspect of the product or service for which the Voucher is redeemed. Some services for which Vouchers can be redeemed are activities that involve potential pyhsical harm (such as skydiving, outdoor adventure, etc), and for those activities, BestBuys takes no responsibility for the service or activity being offered, and the End User takes responsibility for his or her own actions in utilizing the services for which the Voucher can be redeemed.

Each Deal has specific terms associated with the Deal, which will be presented to you at the time you commit to purchase the particular Deal. Deal specific terms supersede any inconsistent terms in this Agreement, except to the extent such terms are prohibited by applicable law.

Any opinions, advice, statements, services, offers, or other information or content expressed or made available by third parties, including information providers, or any other end users are those of the respective author(s) or distributors) and not of BestBuys.

Under no circumstances will BestBuys be liable for any loss or damage caused by an end user’s reliance on information obtained through BestBuys. It is the responsibility of End User to evaluate the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of any information, opinion, advice, etc., or other content available through BestBuys.

BestBuys contains links to third party Web sites maintained by other content providers. These links are provided solely as a convenience to you and not as an endorsement by BestBuys of the contents on such third-party sites and BestBuys hereby expressly disclaims any representations regarding the content or accuracy of materials on such third-party Web sites. If End User decides to access linked third-party Web sites, End User does so at its own risk. Unless you have executed a written agreement with BestBuys expressly permitting you to do so, you may not provide a hyperlink to the Site from any other website. BestBuys reserves the right to revoke its consent to any link at any time in its sole discretion.

Advertisement

We may place advertisements in different locations on the Website and at different points during use of the Service. These locations and points may change from time to time – but we will always clearly mark which goods and services are advertisements (i.e. from persons other than us), so that it is clear to you which goods and services are provided on an objective basis and which are not (i.e. the advertisements).

No personal data (for example your name, address, email address or telephone number) will be used during the course of serving our advertising, but, on our behalf, our third-party advertiser or affiliate may place or recognise a unique “cookie” on your browser (see our Privacy Policy here about this).
