Agreement Between Discount Gun Mart Members & Discount Gun Mart
1. Description of DGM benefits and discounts offered. Each Member will be issued a copy of benefits and a detailed discount list for specified membership related services and other products & services offered by DGM at the time of enrollment.
(a) A Member’s benefits will vary depending upon the Member’s specific membership level and the benefits offered within said level. Discounts and other benefits available to Members may not be combined with discounts from other DGM discount programs.
(b) All benefits are subject to change, substitution, modification, or termination by DGM without notice and DGM makes no representations or warranties with respect to, and accepts no responsibility or liability for, out of date or inaccurate information in relation to said benefits.
(c) Member discounts are based on the regular selling price of an item, not sale prices or quantity discounts. Member discounts are not cumulative or compounding to other price reductions. Member price is always the lowest possible price at the time of sale, either sale price or member price for their membership level. Government fees are not subject to discounts.
(d) Rewards offered with certain membership levels are not retroactive to sales prior to qualifying membership level and do not apply to refunds, cancelled orders (any reason), membership fees, government fees, DGM service fees, transfer fees, sales tax, labor or shipping charges. Sales do not do not qualify for rewards until 30 days after invoice is completed. Rewards are tabulated periodically and when the award certificate threshold is reached, a certificate coupon is awarded. Certificate may expire.
(e) Membership benefits cease when benefit period ends. Benefits for membership levels with open- ended benefit periods that have their fee distributed over a certain period of time are not considered completed, valid transactions until such time as all fees are paid. Failure to pay fees as agreed will result in discontinuation of benefits. Membership fees paid are not refundable.
2. Membership Billing Information. The fees applied to each agreement correspond to the membership level selected by the Member at time of enrollment. Authorization of DGM Automatic Renewal Fee(“ARF”) will be automatically charged by way of Electronic Funds Transfer (“EFT”) from the Member’s designated credit card account or other authorized billing source (e.g., debit card).
(a) The Member, by signing the "Membership Authorization Form", authorize, acknowledge, and agree that the “ARF” shall be charged either monthly or once per year, depending on the type of membership plan, on the anniversary of the member’s enrollment date. Member is advised and agrees that the automatic charges will continue until such time as the Member cancels, if ever. Any Member who uses a debit card as the designated credit card account, or pays by check, acknowledges and agrees the Member, and not DGM, shall be solely responsible for any fees or penalties associated with NSF (insufficient funds), bounced checks or any other fees or charges, whether incurred by DGM or the Member. The Member hereby authorizes DGM to recover such fees, charges or penalties by way of EFT from the Member’s designated credit card or other authorized billing account. If DGM is unable to recover such amount by way of the ARF, Member agrees to reimburse DGM upon demand. Unless Member cancels DGM membership with a minimum 30-day prior notice to the end of Member’s then- current Membership Term, DGM will automatically renew Member’s membership monthly or at the end of the then current Membership Term as authorized at the time of enrollment and bill the then current ARF to the Member’s designated billing source.
(b) The Membership Set Up Fee is paid as a one-time initiation fee at the time of enrollment of the “Monthly Membership Options”. The Set Up Fee is paid once and not again as long as the monthly dues do not become past due. Memberships are considered “past due” after more than 30 days from the first missed payment. DGM may impose late fees to reinstate a “past due” membership. If a Member decides to cancel membership and re-enroll at a later date, the Member may be required to pay a new Set Up Fee.
(c) Membership Freeze Policy. Under certain extreme hardship conditions, Member may request DGM to temporarily freeze their membership.
