PLUS! BIGDEAL REFUND POLICY
Can I refund my coupon before the deal ends?
Unlike other coupon websites which typically do not offer refunds for purchases made regardless of how much you beg and plea, Plus! BigDeal totally understands your predicament and provides a refund policy with you in mind. All you need to do is to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to refund you the full amount you’ve paid.
How would the refund be made?
We will make the refund according to your mode of payment, e.g. if you pay by eNETS, we will instruct eNETS to refund your bank or credit card; if you pay by PayPal, we will refund via PayPal.
Please note that some banks may take 4-6 weeks to reverse the transaction, and you may only see the refund reflected in your credit card statement on the following month.
Can I get a refund if the deal has already ended?
Yes, if the deal has ended you could still get a refund! There will be a 10% administrative charge on the coupon value (or $2, whichever is higher). Starting from 1 October 2012, the refund will be in BigDeal credits only.
But the good news is, we will refund you even if you have missed the redemption expiry date (up to 30 days) unless the deal has a special term and condition that states that refund is not allowed.
What if I have missed the expiry date?
If you have missed the expiry date, you can contact the merchant and ask for an extension, as some merchants are willing to accept late redemption within a certain period of time.
In the event the merchant is not able to extend the redemption period, we will refund you if it is within 30 days after the redemption period has ended. This refund will be in BigDeal credits with a 10% administrative charge on the coupon value (or $2, whichever is higher).
However there will be some exceptions to the refund policy e.g. customized products where we can’t give you a refund. However such exceptions will be stated clearly in the deal’s terms and conditions.
Please note we will only refund the coupon amount. For travel deals, you will have to contact the travel agency for the amount you paid to them directly, such as airport taxes and other miscellaneous fees.
