In order to access certain features of the Site and Services, you must register to create an account (“Account”) and become a “Member.” During the registration process, you will be required to provide certain information and you will establish a username and a password. You authorize us, directly or through third parties, to make any inquiries we consider necessary or appropriate to verify your Account information or the information you provide to us related to your purchases via the Site and Services, which may include providing your information to such third-parties. You agree to provide accurate, current and complete information during the registration process and to update such information to keep it accurate, current and complete. BidsforBargainsMO reserves the right to suspend or terminate your Account if any information provided during the registration process or thereafter proves to be inaccurate, not current or incomplete. You are responsible for safeguarding your password. You agree not to disclose your password to any third-party and to take sole responsibility for any activities or actions under your Account, whether or not you have authorized such activities or actions. You will immediately notify BidsforBargainsMO of any unauthorized use of your Account.
Only one account may be held by one single individual. Multiple accounts will be given one warning and can be terminated. BidsforBargainsMO will attempt to contact suspected violators by email. If there is not a response BidsforBargainsMO will suspend suspected accounts.
Through the Site and Services, Members can make offers to purchase vouchers offered by Merchants that can be used in exchange for goods and services provided by Merchants (“Vouchers”) at a promotional rate. By placing an order for a Voucher, Members make an offer to purchase the Voucher which they have selected on the terms, restrictions and conditions associated with the Voucher. If a certain minimum number of Members offer to purchase a Voucher from a specific Merchant within a specific timeframe, we will process your payment and send you an email confirming your purchase of a Voucher. If not enough Members offer to purchase a Voucher within the appropriate timeframe, such Voucher will not be available for purchase through the Site and Services, and you will not be charged for such Voucher.
Terms Applicable to all Vouchers
All Vouchers are subject to the terms and conditions of the participating Merchant. The holder and issuer of the Voucher is the Merchant and BidsforBargainsMO is not responsible for, nor will BidsforBargainsMO have any liability with respect to: (i) any goods or services offered or provided by a Merchant in connection with a Voucher or otherwise, including, but not limited to, any unclaimed property liability arising from unredeemed Vouchers; or (ii) any third-party claims in connection with, or arising out of any such goods or services, or a Member’s use or possession thereof. Compliance with state statutes, codes or laws applicable to the Vouchers is the responsibility of the Merchants. BidsforBargainsMO’s sole role in transactions relating to the Vouchers is as a marketing agent for the Merchant Voucher. The applicability and compliance with any relevant statutes, codes or laws is solely determined and consummated by the Merchant, and BidsforBargainsMO has no responsibility in this regard. By way of example, the Merchant, not BidsforBargainsMO, is responsible for compliance with all applicable laws with respect to the expiration and redemption of Vouchers; (iii) BidsforBargainsMO is not responsible for closure of any businesses, or refund of purchase price due to a business closure.
All Vouchers are made up of two separate parts, the “Paid Value” and the “Promotional Value”. The “Paid Value” of a Voucher is the amount that you actually pay to purchase a Voucher, and the “Promotional Value” of a Voucher is the portion of the Voucher’s value for which you did not pay. For example, if you paid $10 for a Voucher which gives you $30 of value at the Merchant’s business, the Paid Value of the Voucher is $10 and the Promotional Value of the Voucher is $20. The combination of the Paid Value and Promotional Value of the Voucher is referred to herein as the Voucher’s “Full Voucher Value”. While the expiration date printed on the Voucher generally dictates the last date on which you can use the Voucher at the Merchant’s business for the Full Voucher Value stated on the Voucher, applicable law may provide that the Merchant is responsible for honoring the Paid Value of the Voucher for a period of time beyond the expiration date that is printed on the Voucher. If the expiration date of the Paid Value of the Voucher is prohibited under the law of the jurisdiction in which the Merchant is located, then the Voucher will expire as follows: The Promotional Value of the Voucher will expire on the date printed on the Voucher, and the Paid Value of the Voucher will expire in accordance with the minimum length of time permitted by applicable law in which a Voucher can be redeemed. The Merchant is obligated to honor the Voucher in compliance with applicable law. Accordingly, please contact the applicable Merchant if you would like to redeem the Paid Value of a Voucher after its stated expiration date.
You, as a Member, are solely responsible for your use and redemption of Vouchers, including making any reservations with the Merchant, if applicable. Further, you will be responsible for, and will promptly pay, all applicable taxes and duties of any kind (including but not limited to sales, use and/or transaction taxes) associated with your purchase of goods and services using a Voucher.
Unless otherwise stated on the Voucher or required by law, the following additional terms apply to all Vouchers purchased through the Site and Services:
- Any attempted redemption of a Voucher inconsistent with applicable terms and conditions provided on or in connection with a Voucher will render such Voucher void;
- Unless otherwise specified by a Merchant, there is a limit of one (1) Voucher per redemption;
- Vouchers cannot be redeemed by the applicable Merchant before the effective date listed on the Voucher;
- Neither BidsforBargainsMO nor the Merchant is responsible for lost or stolen Vouchers or Voucher reference numbers;
- Vouchers must be used in one (1) visit to the Merchant and Vouchers cannot be combined with any other coupons or promotions;
- Vouchers may be applied only to merchandise or services sold by the Merchant, and may not be applied to shipping or handling charges, if applicable;
- Duplicate use, sale or trade of a Voucher is prohibited;
- Unless otherwise stated at the time a Voucher is purchased, the listed price for a Voucher does not include tax, gratuity or prior balances you may have with a Merchant;
- At the sole discretion of the Restaurant Merchant, Vouchers may be used for alcoholic beverages and the Restaurant Merchant agrees to comply with all state alcohol laws; and
- Other terms and conditions or restrictions may be provided on each Voucher. We recommend that you check with the Merchant for any additional terms and conditions that may apply to your use of a Voucher.
Void to the extent prohibited by law
Unless prohibited by law, you agree that any violation of any Merchant’s terms and conditions may result in: (i) forfeiture of any amounts paid for such Voucher; and (ii) denial of access to or use of the applicable product, service or Merchant property or removal therefrom.
If after your experience with a Merchant you are unsatisfied for any reason, or if the Merchant refuses to redeem a Voucher which you as a Member purchased and applicable law entitles you to such a redemption, you may be eligible to receive a refund of the amount paid to BidsforBargainsMO for the Voucher, as determined by BidsforBargainsMO in its sole discretion, provided you (i) contact BidsforBargainsMO at [email protected] within seven (7) days of the date you redeemed or attempted to redeem your Voucher (“Request Period”); and (ii) provide us with an description of the issue and/or comments regarding your experience. At the end of the Request Period, requests will no longer be eligible for refund.

YOU AND BIDS FOR BARGAINS MO ARE AGREEING TO GIVE UP ANY RIGHTS TO LITIGATE CLAIMS IN A COURT OR BEFORE A JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION WITH RESPECT TO A CLAIM.

Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise.
