Shopping Rewards Credits6.1 Members will be credited shopping rewards based on the percentage of the net purchase they make at the merchant site accessed via the Shopping Rewards section of Epic Vacations only. The specific percentage associated with each purchase is dependent upon the merchant. The net purchase is defined as the total amount paid to the merchant minus tax, gift wrapping, shipping, promotional credits, returns, cancellations, and transaction fees or as the merchant store defines on their respective Web site.
6.2 As a member, purchases made through Shopping Rewards merchants sites will be deemed qualified purchases and will earn rewards criteria only if the following criteria are satisfied: “Cookies”, both first and third party (if applicable), must be enabled on your Web browser. All potential qualified purchases must begin by going to Shopping Rewards and clicking on Shop Now link to the Affiliated Store. All purchases must be started and completed in one shopping session after the member clicks through to an Affiliated Store via a Shopping Rewards link. If a purchase is completed during a different shopping session, it will not be considered a qualified purchase. Purchases using coupons provided by any party other than Shopping Rewards may not qualify as a qualified purchase.”
General7.1 Epic Vacations reserves the right to modify the Epic Vacations Rewards Program and/or the Rewards Credits Terms and Conditions at any time and in any way.
In the event Epic Vacations is informed by the third party travel provider that your travel reservation has become unavailable, the third party travel provider reserves the right to offer alternative arrangements, which may require additional fees, or provide you a full refund for the total monies paid to the third party travel provider for the unavailable reservation excluding additional fees incurred for previous reservation modifications. You understand and agree that Epic Vacations shall not be responsible or liable for any travel arrangements made in relation to this reservation.
Chargebacks occur when your credit card provider requests that the travel provider returns monies on a transaction which you dispute or claim is fraudulent.
Epic Vacations recognizes that chargebacks can happen for a variety of valid reasons. However, if you make a credit card payment as part of a booking, and you later dispute this legitimate charge by raising a chargeback without merit (in our sole discretion), whether fraudulently or otherwise, the third party provider may take steps to recover any charges resulting from such an unmerited chargeback from you directly. Unmerited chargebacks include but are not limited to: disputing a charge made in accordance with the Cancellation policy; disputing a charge made in respect of the rental in which you fail to make reasonable efforts to work with the third party travel provider to resolve any issues; or requesting a chargeback without a legitimate reason and/or failing to provide any supporting information in respect of the chargeback to allow those parties from which the chargeback is requested to assess the basis of the chargeback request.
Epic Vacations third party travel providers take a zero tolerance approach to chargeback fraud. Furthermore, in the event of any unmerited chargeback requests, they reserve the right to recover monies by any legitimate means available to us, including using a third-party debt collection agency, or any other lawful means to recover funds successfully charged back to you in such circumstances.
Reward Credits purchases are non-refundable.
