Gift Cards/Certificates

Redemption

Life Without Plastic gift cards/certificates ("Gift Cards") must be redeemed through the Life Without Plastic website toward the purchase of eligible merchandise. Purchases are deducted from the Gift Card balance. Any unused balance will be placed in the recipient's Gift Card account when redeemed. If an order exceeds the amount of the Gift Card, the difference must be paid with an additional payment method. Mama Mundo can provide Gift Card purchasers with information about the redemption status of Gift Cards. To redeem or view Gift Card balances, please sign into your account via the "My Account" link in the top right corner of the Life Without Plastic website.

Limitations

Gift Cards cannot be used to purchase other Gift Cards, such as gift cards or certificates issued by third parties. Gift Cards cannot be reloaded, resold, transferred for value, redeemed for cash or applied to any other account, except to the extent required by law. Unused Gift Card balances in a user account may not be transferred.

Risk of Loss

The risk of loss and title for Gift Cards pass to the purchaser upon our electronic transmission to the recipient. We are not responsible if a Gift Card is lost, stolen, destroyed or used without your permission.

Fraud

Mama Mundo will have the right to close customer accounts and request alternative forms of payment if a fraudulently obtained Gift Card is either redeemed through the Life Without Plastic website or is redeemed and used to make purchases on the Life Without Plastic website.

Limitation of Liability

Mama Mundo makes no warranties, express or implied, regarding Gift Cards, including without limitation, any express or implied warranty of merchantibility or fitness for a particular purpose. In the event a Gift Card redemption code does not work, your sole remedy, and our sole liability, shall be the replacement of such Gift Card.
