How the Service Works
We provide our Service by tracking customer policies at popular online merchants, which are listed on our Site. Where we see a potential savings or refund opportunity based on your purchase history, we will correspond with Merchants on your behalf using your email address and name to attempt to get you the benefit. You authorize Waldo to act as your agent in performing the Service. By registering for the Service, you may be required to link your personal email account, such as Google, Yahoo! and Microsoft, and other merchant accounts, such as Amazon (“Linked Accounts”) to the Service. In order to identify savings opportunities for you, we will review the contents of your Linked Accounts, including receipts, correspondence, and contacts information. From time to time, we may offer you additional Services. If we do, these Terms will apply.
Price Drop Refunds: Filing Claims, Fees and Payment
Our price drop service monitors your eligible purchases for price reductions after you buy. Waldo will file a refund claim for an eligible purchase where we detect a price drop of at least three dollars USD ($3.00) or more. Waldo may file claims for smaller price drops at its discretion. After the first claim is filed, Waldo will not file additional claims for the same item, even if the price drops again. Not all price drops may be detected, and Waldo is not responsible for any missed refund opportunities. There is a 25% finders fee for the price drop Service. Any refunds that Waldo obtains will be credited by the Merchant to the credit card (or other form of payment) you used to make the purchase, as determined by the Merchant’s policy. Each month, Waldo will send you a summary of refunds we obtained and charge the appropriate credit card on file for the finders fee.. Any wireless carrier charges related to your use of the Service are your responsibility.
From time to time, if we detect that your purchase was not shipped in the time and manner that the merchant promised you, we may offer to correspond with the merchant on your behalf, and attempt to obtain a refund or other benefit for you. In order to receive a benefit, your purchase must meet the merchant’s policy requirements. This service may not be available at all times, but if we offer it to you, it will be provided free of charge unless we notify you otherwise. If you accept our offer to provide this service, you agree that you will accept any resolution we obtain as final.
Waldo is not affiliated with the Merchants from which we seek refunds and other benefits. Merchants' policies vary widely, and some policies only provide refunds on certain items. Waldo does not own or control Merchants’ customer satisfaction policies, which may change at any time. For convenience, we list each Merchants' policy in the Merchant section of our website, which we will update from time to time as policy changes come to our attention. For the most current version of a Merchant's policy, please refer to the Merchant's website. Waldo is not responsible for the Merchants’ actions, interpretation, and/or application of their policies, or their failure to issue a refund or other resolution that you believe is owed. Waldo may change its list of eligible Merchants at any time.
Your Waldo Account and Linked Account
When you create an account for the Service (“Waldo Account”), you agree that you will not use a username or email address for your Waldo Account or a Linked Account that belongs to someone else, impersonates someone else, violates another’s intellectual property rights, or is offensive in Waldo’ discretion. You agree to provide true, current and complete registration information about yourself, and to update this information promptly when it changes or upon our request. You represent that your Linked Account belongs to you, and you are permitted to link to it. You are responsible for maintaining the security of your Waldo Account and are responsible for all activities that occur under your Waldo Account and Linked Account, whether or not you authorized the activity. You will immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your Waldo Account or other breach of security. You cannot sell, transfer, or assign your Waldo Account to someone else.
