2. BUYING PRODUCTS
- The site allows you, the user, to place electronic orders (“order”) for products on offer as long as such products are available.

- The above is dependent on stock of the product being available.
- Products on the site cannot be reserved to be bought at a later stage, and placing an item in your cart without completing the order does not amount to a “sale”.

- Neosmart cannot be held responsible if the product(s) you added to your cart have become unavailable when you try to complete the sale.

11. COMPETITIONS & PROMOTIONS
Neosmart may release printed or digital discount coupons (“coupons”) from time to time. Such coupons may be available through the website and/or from third-party websites, in magazines and other media. Coupons can be used to secure a discount on the site as long as the coupon is valid. Given expiry dates cannot be moved.
- Promotional coupons are issued at Neosmart discretion. Users don’t have the right to promotional coupons and can’t earn them.
- Promotional coupons are issued with specific terms and conditions that regulate how and when they can be used. For example, certain coupons may be product specific in that they are only valid against a selected group of products. Exclusions may also exist with certain coupons, e.g. not valid for accessories. The onus is on the shopper to check the full coupon T&Cs to ensure they understand the coupon’s applications and limitations.
- In general, unless otherwise specified on the coupon itself: a coupon is only valid for 30 days from date of issue. A coupon can only be used against a purchase on the site when the purchase meets the terms and conditions as specified on the coupon.
- Only one coupon can be used per shopping cart. Coupons are not transferable and cannot be exchanged for cash. The discount value of the coupon will be deducted from the total amount in your shopping cart. The remaining balance, if any, must be paid by you.
- Creation of multiple Neosmart accounts, with different email addresses, in order to utilize a coupon on multiple occasions, is abuse of the benefit and Neosmart reserves the right to not release these orders.
- Should you wish to return an item you have purchased using a coupon: a. If you have redeemed a coupon against a purchase, and you’d like to return all items purchased, Neosmart will refund you or credit your account with the Rand value of the purchase. Please refer to the specific terms and conditions on the coupon for information on whether it will be reinstated and the terms that will apply. b. If you have used a coupon against a purchase and then return some of the products purchased, Neosmart will apportion the value of the coupon across the relevant items in the cart and then refund you the relevant Rand amount based on the items being returned. c. If you have used a coupon against a purchase and then return some of the products purchased, Neosmart will recalculate the total value of your purchase AFTER the returned product(s) has/have been deducted. If the recalculated purchase value no longer meets the terms and conditions associated with the coupon, Neosmart reserves the right to deduct the value of the coupon off the refund for the returns, or, should you have credit in your Fashion World account, to debit the value of the coupon off your account balance.
- Order value must exceed R2000 after discount for free delivery.
Promotional coupons cannot:
- Be used to buy gift vouchers
