Goods will not be dispatched until this pre-authorisation check has been completed. Your card will be debited once the order has been accepted.
Promotional discount codes - We may from time to time offer promotional discount codes which may apply in respect of any, or certain specified, purchases made though this Website.

5.E.1. Gift Cards
Gift cards may be physical gift cards or E-Gift cards that are sent in an email. Gift cards are issued in specific currencies, so that cards issued in New Zealand dollars are redeemable in New Zealand stores and on the new Zealand website, whilst cards issued in Australian dollars are redeemable in Australian stores and on the Australian website. They are not redeemable for cash or travellers cheques. No change will be given for a purchase made with a gift card. The gift card expires twelve months from the date of issue (or date of purchase for E-Gift Cards). Gift cards are partially redeemable and it is up to the cardholder to use the full value within the validity period. Any unused balance will not be refunded or credited when the card expires. When the cost of a purchase exceeds the available card balance, the cardholder will be required to make up the difference with an alternate form of payment. Gift Cards should be treated like cash. Politix disclaims all responsibility for lost or stolen cards.
