PRICING AND SALES TAX POLICY
All prices listed on this site are in U.S. dollars. Online prices and selection generally match those in our stores. Prices and availability of products and services may change due to market conditions and without notice. We endeavor to avoid errors in pricing and product information. Nonetheless, errors occur and will be corrected when discovered. Solomon Brothers reserves the right to withdraw any stated offer and to correct any errors, inaccuracies or omissions including after an order has been submitted and whether or not the order has been confirmed and your credit card charged. Generally, all sales are nonreturnable and refundable. Use of the Solomon Brothers Sites is also governed by Solomon Brothers Lowest Price Guarantee Policy, which is incorporated herein by reference.
Solomon Brothers collects and remits sales tax as required under Georgia law, for transactions in our stores and on the Solomon Brothers Sites.
You may pay for your orders with a variety of forms of payment. Currently, we accept personal checks subject to our check acceptance policy, wire transfers, ebillme, Visa®, MasterCard®, American Express® and Discover® Card. Generally, credit and debit card are not charged until we either ship the item(s) to you or confirm store availability (at which time you will be charged only for the goods we have actually shipped along with any appropriate taxes or shipping charges). However, we may pre-authorize your order amount with your credit or debit card issuer at the time you place the order, which may have an effect on your available credit line. When paying for a preorder with a debit card you will be charged at the time you place your preorder. Please contact your credit card issuer for more information. If you ordered a special delivery item, you will be charged once a delivery time is confirmed. Please note: ACH (aka Automated Clearing House) transfers are not accepted at this time.
Unlike credit or debit cards, promotional codes whether on digital coupons or provided by Solomon Brothers in some other manner, are debited at the time an order is placed. Promotional codes will automatically be redeemed up to the total purchase amount. Promotional codes must be used prior to their expiration date and within a single transaction. Neither promotional codes nor digital coupons will be replaced if they are lost, stolen, deleted, or if you cancel or return your purchase. In the event of a reduction in price below the coupon or code value, the excess value of the coupon or code will not be refunded. For more information, review details of each respective digital coupon or promotional code offer.
After you place an order using our shopping cart, we, or a third-party processor acting as our agent, will check the information you give us for validity, by verifying your method of payment or shipping address. We reserve the right to reject any order you place with us, and/or to limit quantities on any order, without giving any reason. If we reject your order, we will attempt to notify you using the e-mail address you have given us with the order. Your credit or debit card will normally not be charged if we reject an order, but we will process a refund if the charge has been made against your card. Your receipt of an electronic or other form of order confirmation does not signify our acceptance of your order, nor does it constitute confirmation of our offer to sell. We reserves the right at any time after receipt of your order to accept or decline your order for any reason. All sales made through the Solomon Brothers Sites are subject to Solomon Brothers return policy.
