posted this on August 28, 2013, 16:26

Groupon Goods Global GmbH Returns Policy

This Returns Policy only applies in respect of products purchased from Groupon Goods Global GmbH (“Groupon Goods”) from the Groupon UK site or the mobile application. This returns policy does NOT apply in respect of any vouchers you purchased from Groupon UK which are redeemable with merchants for goods.


Returning unwanted products: 

As described in the Terms of Sale, you have up to 14 calendar days starting the day after you receive your Goods to cancel your contract and return your item using our Online Returns Centre, unless the fine print of the deal states the product cannot be returned.  You are responsible for the return shipping costs of the Goods when you cancel your contract.  Please note that the sooner you return the Goods, the more quickly we will be able to process your refund.

Once the products have been returned to us they will be inspected. Unwanted products must be returned unused, except to the extent necessary to examine the products, and in good condition. You must take care to ensure that the Goods are properly packaged so that they will not be damaged while in transit.  If the goods are found to be used or damaged then we may not process a refund and we will contact you by email.  Otherwise, a refund will be processed within 14 days of your cancellation.


Defective, faulty or non-conforming products:

If a product has a defect or fault existing at the time of delivery or does not conform to your order, you have a statutory right to return the product using our Online Returns Centre. If a product becomes defective after the withdrawal period, you won’t be able to return it using our Online Returns Centre.  We strongly encourage you to get in touch with customer service as soon as you become aware of the problem.  We encourage you to inspect each product carefully upon receipt. 

If you return defective, faulty or non-conforming products to us, the product will be inspected at our warehouse. If a defect or fault is found or the product does not match your order, we will be happy to provide a full refund, in accordance with applicable law.  Products that have been misused or changed may not be eligible for returns. If this applies to your order we will contact you by email.

If you are eligible for a refund, such refunds will be processed within 14 days.
