Gift Card Terms and Conditions
EB Gift Cards or eGift Cards are redeemable at any Earthbound Trading Co. or Romancing the Stone store location nationwide or online at www.earthboundtrading.com. This card is not a credit or debit card and has no implied warranties. Earthbound Trading Co. or Romancing the Stone are not responsible for lost, stolen, or damaged cards or any unauthorized card use. Card is redeemable for store merchandise only. Unused value remains on card and cannot be redeemed for cash. Gift cards do not expire. The value on your EB Gift Cards or eGift Cards is not insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), nor does it earn interest.
Your balance can be checked at www.valutec.net or from your online shopping cart. For questions about your eGift, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-844-211-4437 from 8 AM to 4 PM (CST) Monday through Friday.
Loading Value on Your EB Gift Card
In the United States, you can load value on your EB Gift Card by visiting any participating Earthbound Trading Co. store or by calling Customer Support at 1-844-211-4437 from 8 AM to 4 PM (CST) Monday through Friday.
If you use a credit or debit card to purchase or reload your EB Gift Card, prior to charging your credit or debit card, an authorization process will occur for the amount of your purchase or reload transaction ("Transaction"). The authorization process will validate the credit or debit card number, status, available credit or funds and billing information to ensure that it matches what the bank or card company has on file. Your bank may attempt to contact you for additional information prior to authorizing the Transaction amount.
For credit cards, once an authorization is received, you may notice a decrease in your available credit line. Your bank may hold this dollar amount from your credit line or available balance for a short period of time determined by the policy of your bank before your Transaction is fulfilled. For debit cards, your bank may pre-authorize a charge to your deposit or checking account and place a temporary hold on the funds before your Transaction is fulfilled. Regardless of whether you use a credit or debit card, your card will be charged only upon fulfillment of your Transaction. If your Transaction is cancelled, Earthbound Trading Co. will request an authorization reversal on your behalf. Reversal times may vary. We recommend contacting your bank or credit card company to learn about their authorization and authorization reversal policies.
Credit or debit cards may be used to purchase a physical EB Gift Card only. Credit or debit cards cannot be used to purchase an electronic Gift Card.
Loading Value on Your electronic EB eGift Cards
The eGift Card allows you to purchase and send virtual Earthbound Trading Co. Gift Cards via email. You may choose the design and dollar value (within certain limits) and complete your purchase using a credit card, debit card or PayPal account. You will need the email address for the recipient of your eGift Card (also known as an "eGift"). You authorize us to charge your credit card, debit card or PayPal account at the time you purchase your eGift regardless of the date you choose for delivery.
Upon invoicing of your order, we will send the recipient of your eGift an email notifying them that they have received an eGift from you. He or she will have the option of: (1) presenting the eGift via mobile device or (2) printing the eGift and bringing it into an Earthbound Trading Co. store to make a purchase, or (3) using it online at http://www.earthboundtrading.com. We will also send you an email confirming receipt of your eGift when the recipient opens the eGift email. An eGift is like any other Earthbound Trading Co. Gift Card and should be treated like cash by the recipient.
Credit or debit cards cannot be used to purchase an electronic Gift Card. Electronic gift cards may be purchased with Paypal only.
Fees and Expiration of Card Balances
We do not charge any activation, service, dormancy or inactivity fees in connection with your EB Gift Card or eGift Card. Your Earthbound Trading Co. Card has no expiration date nor does the value on your Earthbound Trading Co. Card ever expire.
Receipts and Transaction History
When you use your EB Gift card or eGift Card, we will provide a receipt if you request one. The receipt will indicate that the purchase was made using an Earthbound Trading Co.
