Individual bank policies will dictate when this amount is credited to your account. If you are not fully satisfied with your purchase, you may return it in accordance with HoMedics Return Policy.

Sales Tax Policy

Because HoMedics does business throughout the United States and collects and remits sales tax as required by law, HoMedics also collects and remits sales tax as appropriate. Please visit the Sales Tax page to view applicable sales taxes. HoMedics reserves the right not to sell to resellers.

Paying for Your Order

You may pay for your orders with HoMedics gift certificates or major credit cards issued in the United States of America. Currently, we accept Visa®, MasterCard® and American Express®. A Sales and Discount promotional code may apply to your purchase.

Generally, credit and debit cards are not charged until we either ship the item(s) to you or confirm availability (at which time you will be charged only for the goods we have actually shipped along with any appropriate taxes or shipping charges). However, we may pre-authorize your order amount with your credit or debit card issuer at the time you place the order, which may have an effect on your available credit line. Please contact your credit card issuer for more information.

If you ordered a special delivery item, you will be charged once a delivery time is confirmed. For digitally delivered orders, your credit or debit card will be charged at the time that you initiate the download of the product.

Validating Your Order

After you place an order using our shopping cart, we will check the information you give us for validity, by verifying your method of payment or shipping address. We reserve the right to reject any order you place with us, and/or to limit quantities on any order, without giving any reason. If we reject your order, we will attempt to notify you using the e-mail address you have given us with the order.

Your credit or debit card will normally not be charged if we reject an order, but we will process a refund if the charge has been made against your card.

Order Acceptance/Confirmation

Your receipt of an electronic or other form of order confirmation does not signify our acceptance of your order, nor does it constitute confirmation of our offer to sell. The Site reserves the right at any time after receipt of your order to accept or decline your order for any reason.

Return Policy

All sales made through the Site are subject to HoMedics return policy. For a complete explanation of the return policy, please click on the Returns page link.

Order Limitations

We reserve the right to reject any order you place with us, and/or or to limit quantities on any order, without giving any reason. If we reject your order, we will generally attempt to notify you using the e-mail address you gave us when you placed the order.

HoMedics may, at its own discretion, limit or cancel quantities purchased per person, per household or per order. HoMedics also reserves the right to reject any order you place with us. These restrictions may include orders placed by the same Site account, the same credit card, and orders that use the same billing and/or shipping address. In the event we make a change to an order, we will attempt to notify you by contacting the e-mail and/or billing address provided at the time the order was made. HoMedics reserves the right to limit or prohibit sales to dealers.
