What happens after 12 months of a Monthly Subscription or the end of an Annual Subscription?

a) Your Monthly Subscription or your Annual Subscription will end after 12 months. Before your Subscription is set to end, you will be invited to join a new, higher tier, monthly Subscription (Top Tier Subscription), and you will be asked to accept the current terms and conditions to purchase the new Top Tier Subscription. For a seamless transition, your billing date (and delivery date) for your new Top Tier Subscription will align with your current Billing Date (if applicable) and delivery date, and the payment method linked to your account will be charged the fee for your new Top Tier Subscription on the next Billing Date.

When purchasing a Top Tier Subscription, you can choose from different periods as set out on the Site and your Top Tier Subscription will continue for that term unless cancelled in accordance with clause 8(e).

Switching your Subscription

We want to offer our customers great flexibility. If, part way through your Subscription, you wish to switch to any of the other liquor Subscriptions of equal value that we have on offer, you may request to do so by contacting our customer service team. You will be permitted to switch to the same type of Subscription (whether Monthly Subscription, Annual Subscription or Top Tier Subscription).

5. Price and payments

One-Off Purchase

a) You must pay us the purchase price of each product you order (plus any applicable delivery costs based on the delivery options selected by you) as set out on the Site (the Price) in accordance with this clause.

b) When making a One-Off Purchase, including when purchasing a gift Subscription for a friend, you must pay the Price via credit card or any other payment methods set out on the Site such as PayPal, Google Pay or Apple Pay.

c) Advent Calendars are considered a one-off seasonal product, and are strictly pre-order only for bulk dispatch on the 20th of November. This product cannot be cancelled once ordered. Refunds are only applicable for parcels deemed lost by Australia Post, up to the price that was paid, no exchanges. A re-delivery fee may be charged if the incorrect address is supplied. 

Subscription

a) Where you have purchased a Subscription:

  1. You must pay us the fee for your Subscription and any other amount payable to us under these Terms (Subscription Fee), without set off or delay via credit card or any other payment methods set out on the Site such as PayPal;
  2. For a Monthly Subscription or Top Tier Subscription, you must pay us the Subscription Fee monthly in advance of the next 30 days of your Subscription;
  3. For an Annual Subscription, you must pay us the Subscription Fee in full and upfront at the time you place the order, and before the Subscription begins;
  4. You are responsible for reviewing the pricing schedule, inclusions and exclusions associated with your Subscription.

General

a) Delivery costs are displayed separately from the Price for One-Off Purchases. The Subscription Fee includes delivery fees.

b) All amounts are stated in Australian dollars and are inclusive of GST (where applicable). You must not pay, or attempt to pay, the Price or Subscription Fee by fraudulent or unlawful means.

c) To the extent permitted by law, the Price and Subscription Fee are non-refundable and non-cancellable once paid.

d) If any payment in relation to a Subscription Fee has not been made as set out on the Site or in the Terms, we may (at our absolute discretion) immediately cease supplying the products.

The notice may be provided at any time via email, text message or via notification to your account (and you may change your notification preferences in your account page). If you do not agree to the price change, you may cancel your Subscription in accordance with the ‘Cancellation’ clause.

f) If you are a Northern Territory resident or ordering products for delivery to the Northern Territory, the listing of a product on the Site does not constitute an offer to sell that product to you for that price. Prior to any offer or acceptance, additional price checks will be completed and the price of the product may increase to ensure compliance with the Northern Territory Minimum Unit Price Legislation, which may change the final price calculation for your order.

6. Promotions

a) We may from time to time issue promotional discount codes (via text message, email, or other communication methods) for certain products on the Site. To claim the discount, you must enter the promotional discount code at the time of submitting your order through the Site. The conditions of use relating to promotional discount codes will be specified on the Site at the time they are issued. If you have an active Subscription (that is, a Subscription that is not paused or cancelled), you may also be entitled to member-only pricing for One-Off Purchases, and such pricing will be displayed when you checkout.

b) We may also occasionally offer Subscription upgrades where you will receive more products with each delivery. You can redeem an upgrade via a link in an email sent to you or via your account page and the upgrade will become effective on the next Billing Date. The payment method linked to your account will automatically be charged the new Subscription Fee for your upgrade on the next Billing Date. Where you elect to upgrade and you have an Annual Subscription, your payment method will be charged the price difference.

c) We may also from time to time run competitions on the Site or associated social media platforms. Such competitions are subject to terms and conditions which will be made available on the Site at the time of the competition.

b) You may check your points balance on your account page. We may reverse points where a refund is given and we may correct points which have been awarded by mistake.

c) Where your points are going to expire, or where we are changing or stopping our reward points program, we will provide you with ample notice to allow you to redeem your points if you wish. 

8. Availability and cancellation

Availability

a) All purchases made through the Site are subject to availability. We do our best to keep products in stock and to keep the Site up to date with the availability of products.

b) We reserve the right to cancel, at any time before delivery and for whatever reason, an order that we have previously accepted, including where there is a considerable delay in dispatching your order, if for any reason we cannot supply the products you order (for example for an event beyond our reasonable control) or if products ordered were subject to an error on our Site (for example in relation to a description, price or image). We will contact you using the details you provided when you placed your order. You may choose to receive a refund or a store credit or to place your order on backorder. If you choose a refund or store credit, any delivery costs you have paid for the products will be refunded to you.

Our customer service team will confirm the pause in writing. If you pause your Subscription less than 3 business days prior to the next Billing Date, we will endeavour to initiate your pause but cannot promise that this will be possible, and if the pause cannot be initiated, you will be charged the Subscription Fee on the next Billing Date and your Subscription will be paused effective from the following billing cycle.

c) Cancelling your Annual Subscription: Noting that Annual Subscriptions end after the first year, we generally do not offer cancellations of Annual Subscriptions during the term of the Annual Subscription. However, in exceptional circumstances (including where we have amended these Terms in accordance with clause 18(l) and you believe the amendment adversely and materially affects you), we may allow you to cancel your Annual Subscription and we may refund a portion of the Subscription Fee paid. Please contact our customer service team to discuss your options.

d) We may immediately suspend, terminate or limit your access to and use of the Site and terminate these Terms, if you breach the Terms (including your obligation to pay the Subscription Fee, and including if we believe that you or any recipient of the products is not legally entitled to take possession of and use our products) and the breach cannot be remedied or is not remedied within 5 business days of us notifying you of the breach.
