Terms of Sale
Last Updated: June 28, 2011
1. Your Account
When you make a purchase from the Site, you may create an account as part of the checkout process. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and restricting access to your password and account. You further agree to accept responsibility for all purchases and activities that occur under your account.
2. Acceptance of Order
Your placement of an order does not necessarily assure that we will accept your order. We reserve the right to refuse any order in our sole discretion. In addition, before accepting your order, we may require additional information if you have not provided all of the information required by us to complete your order. Once a properly completed order is received, authorization of your form of payment is received and we have accepted your order, we will promptly place your order in line for shipment.
3. Pricing and Availability
All prices for products (and the associated costs of shipping and tax) are shown in U.S. dollars. All items are subject to availability and we reserve the right to impose quantity limits on any order, to reject all or part of an order, and to discontinue products without notice, even if you have already placed your order. All prices are subject to change without notice, and you agree that taxes may be adjusted from the amount shown on the payment screens. Several factors may cause this, such as variances between processor programs and changes in tax rates.
4. Payment Terms
Starbucks currently accepts Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover credit cards and PayPal. By submitting your order, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to use the designated credit card and authorize us to charge your order (including taxes, shipping and handling) to that card. If the card cannot be verified, is invalid or is otherwise not acceptable, your order may be suspended or cancelled automatically.
5. Shipping Terms and Policies
We endeavor to ship all orders for in-stock items within one (1) business day. Our standard business hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Pacific Time Standard shipping is typically via UPS or Federal Express and you should allow five (5) to eight (8) business days for standard delivery once an order has been shipped. We reserve the right to substitute another carrier of equal or lesser cost to deliver your order. If expedited shipping is required, please select that as your shipping choice.
All shipping charges are your responsibility, unless waived by Starbucks. Shipping charges will be included on your invoice and can be viewed prior to finalizing your order. The shipping charge shown during the checkout process is subject to verification. Shipping charges are subject to change without notice.
All orders are shipped FOB shipping point. Title to products passes from Starbucks to you upon shipment and we are not responsible for any shipping delays or problems once the product has been shipped.
6. Back Orders
If for some reason an item on your order is temporarily out of stock, we will back order that item for you and ship the other merchandise immediately. Items on back order will be charged when the items are actually shipped, along with applicable taxes and shipping charges.
7. Return and Exchange Policies
When you shop with us, we want you to be completely satisfied. If for any reason you are not satisfied with your purchase, you may return it for a replacement or refund of the purchase price. Any gift item shipped to you from Store.Starbucks.com may be returned for a merchandise credit that can be used on a future Store.Starbucks.com order. Refund checks are not available for gift returns. Returns for orders originally purchased with a Starbucks gift card will be refunded to the Starbucks card used in the original order. Merchandise credits may be redeemed on Store.Starbucks.com and are not redeemable in retail locations.
For your convenience, the Return Form includes a Return Label that you may use when shipping the package back to us. Simply attach the label to the outside of your package and send the package via UPS or insured parcel post. Please first remove the old label from the packaging or make sure that the Return Label covers the old one.
