SUBSCRIPTION/BILLING: At THE FINER THINGS, we offer one type of Box Membership. Please review these THE FINER THINGS Membership Terms carefully and make sure you understand them before enrolling because they contain important and relevant information regarding any Membership you may purchase, including renewal and cancellation terms. Memberships are continuous and automatically renew unless you cancel or we terminate your account.
- Quarterly Memberships. A Quarterly Membership consists of an initial themed product box (each, a “Box”) and an additional Box sent out quarterly thereafter – April, July and October, etc.
If you sign up for a Quarterly Membership, you will be immediately billed the quarterly subscription rate, plus applicable taxes and shipping cost (as a non-refundable minimum purchase) and that initial "box" will be the first box you receive. Thereafter, your credit card will be charged the quarterly subscription box rate plus applicable taxes and shipping cost, on the 1st day of the 1st month of the new quarter (April 1st, July 1st, and October 1st) in advance of the subsequent quarterly box shipment date, and every quarter thereafter.
Quarterly Memberships automatically renew each quarter (i.e., calendar quarter) and, unless request a timely cancellation, you will be charged as described above
2. Annual Memberships. If you choose an Annual Membership, your subscription will include the same Boxes as you would receive under a Quarterly Membership. If you sign up for an Annual Membership, you will be immediately billed the annual subscription rate, plus applicable taxes and shipping cost (as a non-refundable minimum purchase).
Annual Memberships automatically renew on the next billing date after your first four boxes and, unless cancel in a timely manner, you will be charged for the next annual Membership Term up to three weeks before the then-current Box is shipped.
**New annual memberships have been discontinued as of December 2018**
Cancellation Policy. Customers may cancel at any time, subject to the time frames below. We do not place “holds” on Memberships and users are welcome to reactive their membership at any time.
In order to cancel your Subscription, you will need to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, indicate that you wish to cancel and follow the instructions that we send you in response. There are no cancellation fees.
Cancellations must be effected prior to the billing date of the Membership renewal. Please cancel by 11:59 p.m. on the 15th of the month prior to the new quarterly payment. For Quarterly Memberships, this means that you must cancel before the billing date for the next quarter. For Annual Memberships, you must cancel prior to the billing date for the next annual period.
