By registering and being accepted as a Member, you agree to (i) provide true, accurate, current, and complete information about yourself as prompted by the registration form, and (ii) maintain and properly update your account information to keep it true, accurate, current, and complete. If you provide information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, or if we have reasonable grounds to suspect that you have, or you violate these Terms, as determined in our sole discretion, we have the right to suspend or terminate your membership and refuse any and all current or future use of the Site and the Services (or any portion thereof). Registration is currently available only to consumers (not businesses) residing in eligible United State states only, subject to FreeShipping.com's verification, in its sole discretion. Without limitation of the foregoing, FreShipping.com reserves the right to reject any Membership application in its sole discretion. Your First-Year Membership Term lasts for 12 months, beginning on the first day of your membership. If you have a trial membership, your First-Year Membership Term includes the trial period and ends one year from the date that your trial period ends. We reserve the right at any time and in our sole discretion to verify a Member’s eligibility and compliance with these Terms prior to fulfilling any membership Service, including, but not limited to, ensuring that the Member is not using the Services for commercial purpose. Subsequent Membership Years last for 12 months, beginning each year on the day your previous membership term ended, provided your membership fee payments remain up-to-date. There is a limit of one membership and one introductory/premium offer per household.Membership, Subscriptions; Charges on Your Billing Account.
FreeShipping.com charges you for your access to the Service using the billing information you provide (your "Billing Account") at the time of enrollment. By enrolling in FreeShipping.com, You authorize FreeShipping.com to charge your Billing Account the fees then in effect for the Service. FreeShipping.com reserves the right to correct any errors or mistakes that it makes, even if it has already requested or received payment, and to update your information from available third-party sources. All membership fees and cash back earnings are in US Dollars.
Recurring Billing. Access to the Service requires a subscription for membership and often consists of an initial period, where you can try the Services for free or for an introductory trial, followed by recurring period charges authorized and agreed to by you at the time of your subscription. If your membership subscription has an initial and recurring payment feature, you accept responsibility for all recurring charges prior to cancellation. To change or cancel your membership at any time, go to the "Help" tab, or send your request to us using the "Contact Us" link on any page of the Site or by calling the Customer Service Department toll-free at 1-800-869-5597. Your membership will be automatically extended for successive renewal periods of the same duration as the membership term originally selected, at the then-current non-promotional membership rate. If you cancel a monthly membership, you are eligible for a refund of your first monthly bill, and you may use your membership until the end of your then-current membership term; your membership will not be renewed after your then-current term expires. However, you won't be eligible for a prorated refund of any portion of the monthly membership fee paid thereafter for the then-current membership period. If you cancel an annual membership, you are eligible for a prorated refund of any portion of the membership fee paid for the then-current membership period, unless you have simply requested that your membership not be renewed, in which case you may continue to access your membership benefits until the end of your current term. If you believe you are owed a refund, please contact [email protected] or call 1-800-869-5597. If you cancel your membership but want to become a member again, please contact [email protected] or call 1-800-869-5597 for assistance. Your non-termination or continued use of the Service reaffirms that FreeShipping.com is authorized to charge your Payment Method on the recurring bases agreed to (e.g., monthly or yearly). FreeShipping.com may submit those charges for payment, and you will be responsible for such charges. FREESHIPPING.COM MAY SUBMIT PERIODIC CHARGES WITHOUT FURTHER AUTHORIZATION FROM YOU, UNTIL YOU AFFIRMATIVELY CANCEL YOUR MEMBERSHIP OR NOTIFY US THAT YOU WISH TO CHANGE YOUR PAYMENT METHOD. SUCH NOTICE WILL NOT AFFECT CHARGES SUBMITTED BEFORE FREESHIPPING.COM REASONABLY COULD ACT. TO TERMINATE YOUR AUTHORIZATION, VISIT THE "HELP" TAB AND CLICK THE "FINALIZE CANCELLATION REQUEST" BUTTON, OR SEND YOUR REQUEST TO US USING THE "CONTACT US" LINK ON ANY PAGE OF THE SITE OR BY CALLING THE CUSTOMER SERVICE DEPARTMENT TOLL-FREE AT 1-800-869-5597. TO CHANGE YOUR PAYMENT METHOD, GO TO THE "HELP" SECTION OF THE WEBSITE.
Current Information Required. YOU MUST PROMPTLY NOTIFY FREESHIPPING.COM IF YOUR PAYMENT METHOD IS CANCELLED (E.G., FOR LOSS OR THEFT) OR IF YOU BECOME AWARE OF A POTENTIAL BREACH OF SECURITY, SUCH AS THE UNAUTHORIZED DISCLOSURE OR USE OF YOUR EMAIL OR PASSWORD. CHANGES TO SUCH INFORMATION CAN BE MADE IN THE "HELP" SECTION OF THE WEBSITE. IF YOU FAIL TO PROVIDE FREESHIPPING.COM ANY OF THE FOREGOING INFORMATION, YOU AGREE THAT FREESHIPPING.COM MAY CONTINUE CHARGING YOU FOR ANY USE OF THE SERVICE UNDER YOUR BILLING ACCOUNT, UNLESS WE HAVE EVIDENCE THAT YOU HAVE TERMINATED YOUR MEMBERSHIP FOR THE SERVICE.
Payment Method. The terms of your payment will be based on your Payment Method and may be determined by agreements between you and the financial institution, credit card issuer, or other provider of your chosen Payment Method (the "Payment Method Provider"). If FreeShipping.com does not receive payment from your Payment Method Provider, you agree to pay all amounts due on your Billing Account upon demand.
Change in Amount Authorized. If the amount to be charged to your Billing Account varies from the current rate set forth in your initial offer due to an increase in our current rates (other than due to the imposition or change in the amount of state sales taxes), FreeShipping.com shall provide notice of the amount to be charged and the date of the charge at least 10 days before the scheduled date of the transaction. Any agreement you have with your Payment Method Provider will govern your use of your Payment Method. You agree that FreeShipping.com may accumulate charges incurred and submit them as one or more aggregate charges during or at the end of each billing cycle.
Free and Introductory Trials and Other Promotions. Any free or introductory trial offer or other promotion that provides membership access to the Service must be used within the specified time of the trial. You must cancel your membership before the end of the stated trial period in order to avoid being charged the full membership fee set forth in the offer terms. Your trial period begins on the day you accept the trial offer; for example, if you accept a 7-day trial offer, your full paid membership term will begin one week from the date that you accepted the offer unless you cancel. All trial-period and/or promotional offers that refer to a start time and/or deadline use Eastern Time Zone (ET) hours; e.g., if promotional material says that an offer will end at midnight on a certain date, that should be interpreted to mean that it will end at midnight ET on that date. There is a limit of one membership and one introductory/premium offer per household.

Arbitration shall be subject to the Federal Arbitration Act and shall be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) before one commercial arbitrator. The conduct of the arbitration shall be subject to AAA's then-current rules and procedures for commercial arbitration and, if the arbitrator deems it appropriate, the then-current supplementary rules and procedures for consumer-related disputes (collectively, Rules and Procedures). YOU SPECIFICALLY AGREE THAT YOU ARE BOUND TO RESOLVE ALL DISPUTES IN ARBITRATION, AND YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU ARE VOLUNTARILY AND KNOWINGLY FORFEITING YOUR RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY AND TO OTHERWISE PROCEED IN A LAWSUIT IN STATE OR FEDERAL COURT. Payment of arbitration costs will be governed by the AAA's fee schedule, unless you are able to show that your portion will be prohibitive as compared to litigation costs, in which case FreeShipping.com will pay as much of your arbitration costs as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive as compared to litigation costs. FreeShipping.com also reserves the right, in its sole and exclusive discretion, to assume responsibility for all arbitration costs imposed by the AAA. Each party agrees to pay its own attorneys' fees and expenses unless there is a governing statutory provision or remedy under the governing law that requires the prevailing party to be paid attorneys' fees and expenses.
Information on AAA, its Rules and Procedures, and how to start arbitration can be found at http://www.adr.org or by calling 800-778-7879.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, to the extent the dispute arises from a violation of your or FreeShipping.com's intellectual property rights in any manner, both parties agree that the non-infringing party may seek injunctive remedies (or an equivalent type of urgent legal relief) in a state or federal court consistent with the Governing Law and Jurisdiction subsections below, and both parties consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in such courts. Additionally, you or FreeShipping.com may take the dispute to small claims court if the dispute qualifies for small claims court.
Waiver of Class Arbitration: To the fullest extent permissible under applicable law, all disputes shall be resolved by binding confidential arbitration on an individual basis. You expressly agree that no other disputes shall be consolidated or joined with your dispute, whether through class arbitration proceedings or otherwise. You further acknowledge and agree that any arbitrator assigned to a dispute shall not and lacks the authority to conduct class arbitration or award class-wide relief and that such arbitrator shall only hear your individual dispute. You acknowledge that you are voluntarily and knowingly waiving any right to participate as a representative of any class of claimants pertaining to any dispute subject to arbitration, such that you shall not be entitled to arbitrate any dispute as a representative plaintiff or claimant, class representative, class member, or private attorney general.
Governing Law: These Terms and all disputes between the parties shall be governed in all respects by the laws of the State of Connecticut, consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act, as they apply to agreements entered into and to be performed entirely within Connecticut between Connecticut residents, without regard to any conflict-of-law provisions. Further, in any arbitration, both parties agree the arbitrator shall honor claims of privilege and privacy recognized under Connecticut law.
Enforcement of Arbitration Award: The arbitrator's award shall be final and binding on all parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Severability: If any portion of this Dispute Resolution section (with the exception of the Waiver of Class Arbitration subsection) is deemed invalid or unenforceable by any arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction, the invalid or unenforceable portion shall be severed and removed from the Terms, and the remaining portions (including the Agreement to Arbitrate Disputes subsection) shall remain binding on you and FreeShipping.com. If any arbitrator deems the Waiver of Class Arbitration subsection to be invalid or unenforceable, then the entire Agreement to Arbitrate Disputes subsection shall be null and void. Under such circumstances, you expressly acknowledge and agree that the Governing Law and Jurisdiction subsections apply to any disputes between you and FreeShipping.com, and both parties consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in such courts.
Jurisdiction: If, in any dispute, the Agreement to Arbitrate Disputes subsection is determined to be invalid or unenforceable, notwithstanding the Severability subsection above, or null and void by any arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction, or if the dispute seeks injunctive remedies arising from a violation of your or FreeShipping.com's intellectual property rights, the dispute shall be resolved by a state or federal court located in Hartford County, Connecticut, USA. The parties agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of such Connecticut state or federal courts for the purposes of litigating any such dispute. This subsection does not apply disputes made in small claims court.
Miscellaneous. These Terms and policies incorporated herein are the entire agreement between you and FreeShipping.com. They supersede any and all prior or contemporaneous agreements between you and FreeShipping.com relating to your use of the Site or the Services. If any part of these Terms is determined to be invalid or unenforceable, it will not impact any other provision of these Terms, all of which will remain in full force and effect. The failure of FreeShipping.com to partially or fully exercise any rights, or the waiver of FreeShipping.com of any breach of these Terms by you, shall not prevent a subsequent exercise of such right by FreeShipping.com or be deemed a waiver by FreeShipping.com of any subsequent breach by you of the same or any other term of these Terms. The rights and remedies of FreeShipping.com under these Terms and any other applicable agreement between you and FreeShipping.com shall be cumulative, and the exercise of any such right or remedy shall not limit FreeShipping.com's right to exercise any other right or remedy.
