specifications as listed on the respective Product Detail page. Value Brand items
are manufactured by numerous companies whose company names may or may not be recognizable
"brand names" to the consumer. The trademarks and/or trade names of the brand name
companies referenced in the Product Detail page are used only to compare products of
similar characteristics. Orders for Value Brand products may contain items manufactured
by two or more companies.
Orders are not binding upon Bulbs.com until accepted. Bulbs.com reserves the right,
without prior notification, to limit the order quantity on any item and/or refuse
service to any customer. Verification of information may be required prior to the
acceptance of any order.
Payment can be made via MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover.

on open account, Bulbs.com reserves the right to add to your monthly balance a
service charge of 1.5% per month (18% annual rate) on all amounts unpaid on
the first day of the 2nd month following purchase. If the account is placed with
a third party for collection, buyer agrees to pay all costs and expenses of collection,
including the reasonable attorneys fees, in addition to the service charges stated above.
Bulbs.com requires customers with an open credit account to make $1,000 in purchases annually.
Bulbs.com reserves the right to revoke credit extensions and close credit accounts for
those customers who do not maintain the minimum purchase volume or who do not pay within
the assigned payment terms. Closing credit accounts or revoking credit extensions is
standard practice for Bulbs.com for customers with slow payment history. All Bulbs.com
customers are strongly advised to remit payments according to the payment terms assigned
in order to maintain an open account status.
You are responsible for the payment of any state and local sales or use taxes that
may apply to your order. The sales tax is calculated based on the full invoice price,
and may include charges for shipping and handling, if required by law. By law, Bulbs.com
must collect sales tax for orders SHIPPED to the states of Michigan, Massachusetts, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Virginia or Tennessee.
If you order by 4 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, the in-stock items ordered will be shipped
that day (Monday through Friday delivery days) via ground transportation to most locations.
Upgraded shipping services (Next Day, 2nd Day) are available at an additional charge.
Bulbs.com may select an alternative shipper depending on the size and weight of your item.
In the event only some of the product is in stock at the time an order is placed, the
available product will be shipped via the upgraded service and the backorder will ship
via Ground service when stock is replenished. While Bulbs.com will make every reasonable
effort to ship your orders within these time frames, Bulbs.com is not responsible or
liable for any delay in receiving or completing your order that is caused by an event
beyond Bulbs.com's reasonable control. Such events may include, but are not limited to,
fire, flood, accident, strike, riot, civil commotion, act of God, war or other hostilities,
acts or omissions of carriers, transmitters, phone companies, Internet Service Providers
or Internet backbone providers or a failure, interruption or delay of the server or this
Web site caused by an event outside the direct control of Bulbs.com, including without
limitation, power outages or attacks on this Web site such as by persons known as "hackers."
Bulbs.com will ship to addresses within the contiguous United States for a shipping charge of $11.95.
The order minimum for orders outside the 50 United States is $100.00 (U.S). Shipments to Alaska,
Hawaii, other US Territories, Canada, and Mexico will be arranged and additional shipping charges
will apply. For customers seeking to have bulbs delivered to all other countries, Bulbs.com will
ship via DHL, UPS, FedEx or through a U.S.-based "Freight Forwarder" of the customer's choosing.
Additional shipping charges will apply. The customer is responsible for payment of taxes, duties,
tariffs and any other charges levied by government agencies. Payment must be made in full using a
credit card or bank transfer at the time of shipment. Title and risk of loss of the products pass
to the customer upon delivery at the "Freight Forwarder."
Shipping & Handling (S & H) Charges
A S & H charge applies to all orders. Additional S & H charges will apply to orders
shipped outside the 48 contiguous states and to orders shipped via upgraded services
(Next Day, 2nd Day, etc). In the event only some of the product is in stock at the time
an order is placed, the available product will be shipped via the upgraded service and the
backorder will ship via Ground service when stock is replenished. S & H charges, along
with any charged Freight, are non-refundable in occurrences where Bulbs.com has made no
error in merchandizing or shipping.

products or use thereof, express or implied, including warranties of merchantability, non-infringement,
title or fitness for a particular purpose. Some jurisdictions may not allow the exclusion of certain
implied warranties, so some of the above exclusions may not apply to you.
Promotional codes are valid only during the time period stated in the offer, must be used at the

whether such claim is based on warranty, contract, tort (including negligence or strict liability) or

the company for the applicable order or product out of which liability arose. These limitations shall
apply notwithstanding any failure of essential purpose of any remedy. Some states and/or jurisdictions

may not apply to you.

law by a court of competent jurisdiction or arbitral tribunal, such provision shall be deemed
severed from these Terms of Sale and the validity of the remainder of these Terms of Sale shall
