Order Acceptance

Please note that there may be certain orders that we are unable to accept and must cancel. We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to refuse or cancel any order for any reason. For your convenience, you will not be charged until your payment method is authorized, the order information is verified for accuracy and your order is shipped. Some situations that may result in your order being canceled include limitations on quantities available for purchase, inaccuracies or errors in product or pricing information, or problems identified by our credit and fraud avoidance department. We always make every effort to deliver to you the exact item that you purchased. However, at times items are lost or stolen, damaged or recalled by a team or athlete. If for any reason we are unable to deliver to you the item you have purchased, while we may assist you in trying to find another comparable item, you agree that your sole and exclusive remedy, and our sole obligation, is to provide you with a refund of the money paid for such item.

We may also require additional verifications or information before accepting any order. We will contact you if all or any portion of your order is canceled or if additional information is required to accept your order. If your order is canceled after your credit card has been charged, we will issue a credit to your credit card in the amount of the charge.

Some products consisting of sports equipment are not intended for use in connection with any physical activity, such as used merchandise which may no longer be suitable for its original purpose or promotional items that were never intended to be used in connection with any physical activity.

Pricing Information

BUYFORACAUSE.COM offers customers charitable pricing at a discount to Steiner Sports’ typical and average retail pricing for a particular item  and provides the eligible organization that you support by buying items from their landing page a donation of twenty percent (20%) from the purchase price. Since Steiner Sports may, from time to time, offer special promotions, “flash sales”, auctions or combine products on its STEINERSPORTS.COM website, it is possible that pricing on BUYFORACAUSE.COM may be temporarily higher for a particular item, than the best price found for such item on STEINERSPORTS.COM. It is not uncommon for item to be sold at a significant premium over the manufacturer’s suggested retail pricing at a charity auction to support a cause. Accordingly, users of BUYFORACAUSE.COM understand that BUYFORACUSE.COM will not match lower pricing of a particular item on the STEINERSPORTS.COM website. However, products found on the BUYFORCAUSE.COM website will always be priced at the charitable rate pricing at a discount to the average and typical retail pricing found on STEINERSPORTS.COM.

While BUYFORACAUSE.COM strives to provide accurate product and pricing information, pricing or typographical errors may occur. BUYFORACAUSE.COM cannot confirm the price of an item until after you order. In the event that an item is listed at an incorrect price or with incorrect information due to an error in pricing or product information, BUYFORACAUSE.COM shall have the right, at our sole discretion, to refuse or cancel any orders placed for that item. In the event that an item is mispriced, BUYFORACAUSE.COM may, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation.

We strive to provide you with the best prices possible on BUYFORACAUSE.COM. Prices and availability are subject to change without notice.

Quantity Limits & Dealer Sales

BUYFORACAUSE.COM reserves the right, at our sole discretion, to limit the quantity of items purchased per person, per household or per order. These restrictions may be applicable to orders placed by the same Buyforacause and/or Steiner Sports account, the same credit card, and also to orders that use the same billing and/or shipping address. We will provide notification to the customer should such limits be applied. BUYFORACAUSE.COM also reserves the right, at our sole discretion, to prohibit sales to dealers.

Promotions & Promotional Rules and Conditions

BUYFORACAUSE.COM may feature special sales, savings, promotions and incentives. Promotions are by default, limited to one of any/each item available, per person, or as specified in the specific terms expressly stated as a part of any promotional endeavor. BUYFORACAUSE.COM’s web site may initially accept an order which violates these terms or conditions. In these cases, and at BUYFORACAUSE.COM’s sole discretion, we reserve the right to limit, modify or cancel any order(s) or transaction(s) which purposely or accidentally violates the aforementioned terms of promotional participation. See "Quantity Limits & Dealer Sales" section for more information on quantity limits. Wholesale accounts are not eligible to participate in any web promotions or special offers. Any order(s) suspected of being placed by a wholesaler, or for the express purpose of re-sale by an individual via any web promotion will immediately be canceled with or without notice at the discretion or BUYFORACAUSE.COM. Promotional Codes may not be combined or used, under any circumstances, on Game-Used or Team-Issued items, items which are already discounted (red slash-off pricing), Derek Jeter, Yogi Berra, Tom Brady, Odell Beckham Jr. or Henrik Lundqvist items, UDA authenticated items, event purchases or auction lots. Other exclusions may apply. Any order containing a promotional code or discount code on any item such above is expressly prohibited and will be subject to cancellation at the sole discretion of Steiner Sports. In the event of any promotional pricing, the eligible organization will receive twenty percent (20%) of the promotional purchase price.
