Are there any other rules about credits?
Credits can redeemed at any time during the checkout process and applied to any purchase
Please note that credits will not be issued to people living at the same address, using the same shipping address, or using the same credit card
Credits cannot be redeemed for cash and have no value outside of Beyond the Rack
If you invite a friend, and they return their first order, you will lose the credits for that friend
We reserve the right to remove any member who has gathered credits through fraudulent activity. Under those circumstances, all credits will be forfeited

We also enable you to personalize the message.
When do I receive credits for friends I invite?

How do I use my credits?
"BTR credits" can be located on the top left hand corner of the page. These credits are automatically deducted during the checkout phase. The system will still prompt you to add your credit or Visa Debit card information, even if your total is zero, as an account verification tool. Credits will always be deducted first and any additional funds will be charged to the credit card.
Merchandise and shopping
How are the products chosen for each event?
Our merchandising team works with our diverse brand partners to select the best product assortment for an event.
Am I guaranteed to get the product that I choose?
When you save an item into your shopping bag, this item is reserved for you for the following 20 minutes. This should give you sufficient time to continue shopping and check out. A timer will tell you how much time you have left. Please leave yourself sufficient time to complete your check out. Since the demand for items in an event can often exceed the available inventory allocated to us by our suppliers, we limit the amount the time that items can remain in shopping bags before we put them back on sale. After 20 minutes, the item will remain in your shopping cart, but other people will be able to purchase the item or place the same item in their shopping bag.
How many items can I place in my shopping bag?
In order to ensure all members have equal access to our merchandise, you may only place 30 items
in your shopping bag at any given time. If you would like to buy more,
please check out and pay for these items prior to going back into the event to add additional
items to your cart.
Can I view the products before an event starts?
You will only be able to view the products for an event once the event starts. We recommend that
you log in early to ensure you have the best choice of products, sizes, and colors.
How do I know that the merchandise is really from the designer?
We guarantee the authenticity of all our merchandise.
How do I know if what I buy will fit me?
We provide a universal size chart and ring sizer that will help you purchase products in your size. If you are unhappy with the size or fit of your product, you may return it, subject to and in accordance with our returns policy (described below).
Can I order by phone?
To help keep our prices low, all purchases can only be made through our website.
Are some events going to be guaranteed for Christmas?
Yes, some events will be guaranteed for Christmas, these will be clearly indicated on the site.
What if I order an item that is guaranteed for Christmas with one that isn't? Will I get both in time for Christmas?
You may, but items guaranteed for Christmas will be prioritized and may ship earlier than others.
What are your customer service hours for the holiday season?
Our customer service hours are Monday-Friday 8AM-8PM ET and weekends from 9AM-6 PM ET.
What is your return policy for items purchased for Christmas?
Most items we sell are now returnable for up to one year from the time you receive them. Non-returnable items are always indicated on the item page and include toiletries, cosmetics, lingerie, swimwear, earrings, some leather goods, duvets, pillows, goods that are liable to deteriorate or expire rapidly, furniture, and goods sold as "clearance" and/or "final sale”.
Do you offer gift cards for the holidays?
At this time we do not offer gift cards.
Do you offer gift wrapping?
At this time we do not offer gift wrapping.
How do I send somebody a gift?
To send a gift, place your order in the usual way. At checkout, make sure to fill in the name and address of the
person you shopped for in the Recipient Details box. Next, check the "Is this order a gift?" box which appears
just below the shipping and billing information area, and add a personal message if you wish. If your gift
recipient is not already a Beyond the Rack member and wishes to return their gift, the return can only be
processed under your account. However, the paperwork which comes with their gift will feature a special
invitation link they can use to become a member.
The first time your gift recipient makes a purchase we'll put a $10 credit in your account.
Payment and processing
What forms of payment do you accept?
We currently accept payment by Visa credit & debit, MasterCard credit & debit, American Express and Discover Card. You may also pay for your purchase using your MasterPass account.
What currency can I pay in, and how will I be charged?
All prices are shown in US dollars for US members, and Canadian dollars for Canadian members.
You will be charged in the currency of your country of residence.
Once you have registered your country of residence, you are not able to change it yourself.
To request a change to this account setting, please use the form on the Contact Us page.
When will I be charged?
Our real-time ordering system will authorize your card the moment you place your order and a settlement (debit)
will likely occur within 24 hours.
Why do you charge me before the brand sends you the merchandise I ordered?
We only authorize our suppliers to send us their merchandise once the event closes, at which point we know
exactly what to order for our membership as a whole. As a private shopping club, we're actually ordering
select merchandise on your behalf. Working this way helps us secure great prices and selection for our
members on an ongoing basis, which is what BTR is all about.
Are the transactions secure?
Protecting the safety of your credit or debit card information is extremely important to us. We use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology to help protect the security of your credit or debit card information as it is transmitted to us. SSL is a highly sophisticated method of scrambling data as it travels from your computer to our Website's servers. As an added security feature, we do not store your credit or debit card data on our servers once the transaction is completed.
Can I be assured that my personal information will not be sold or rented to anybody else?
Beyond the Rack values its members and respects their privacy. We only collect customer information to fulfill
your order, to improve your shopping experience, and in order to communicate with you about our products, services,
contests, and promotions. We do not sell or rent your personal information to third parties. All promotional emails
that we send have an easy unsubscribe feature that allows you to remove yourself from future mailings.
What happens if I forget my password?
Go to www.beyondtherack.com, and click on the "Forgot password?" link below the email address field on our home page.
Fill in the email address you provided during registration, and we will send an email to that address which contains
the password hint we have on file. If you are still having trouble, please get in touch with us by clicking on the
Contact Us link at the bottom of any page on our site.
Who do I contact for billing or payment-related questions?
Please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-877-733-4660
Monday - Friday from 8AM - 8PM ET, Saturday - Sunday from 9AM - 6PM ET. We'll be happy to help!

Shipping and taxes
Where do you ship from?
We ship orders from our warehouses located in New York state, Las Vegas, and Montreal.
What are your shipping rates?
We now offer low base rate shipping. Additional shipping may apply, and is calculated on your ship-to address and the weight or size of the parcel. Some events or items are subject to flat-rate shipping or White Glove Service (see White Glove FAQ below); this is indicated on each item’s page.
What is the BTR Free Shipping Pass?
As always, we offer the BTR Shipping Pass.
If your order qualifies, you’ll enjoy free shipping for the duration of the pass.
Orders above 20 pounds will attract additional shipping.
Shipping passes typically last three days, but are sometimes extended.
When offered, Shipping Pass extensions are indicated on our home page.
What is flat-rate shipping?
Certain larger and heavier items, as well as items which ship directly from the vendor, are subject to flat-rate shipping. This is indicated on each item’s page. If you shop from more than one flat-rate event you will be charged flat-rate shipping once per event. You can purchase as many items as you want from a flat-rate event and will only be charged flat-rate shipping once per order. Items that ship directly from a vendor are not returnable. Flat-rate shipping is not part of base shipping.
How long will it take to receive my shipment?
Every item page on our site includes a ships-from-BTR date and a link to a delivery schedule map.
Some items are eligible for 5-day shipping (unless it applies for consolidated shipping), while others can take 2-3 weeks from the time you
click the Process Order button. Please allow one week from the date of shipment for your order
to be delivered to you. The reason BTR delivery time differs from traditional e-tailers is that
we only authorize our brand partners to send us what our members have ordered after each event
closes. This helps us provide you with a great selection of merchandise at even greater prices
every day; which is what an exclusive shopping club is all about! As merchandise arrives at our
Order Processing Center, our team assembles and ships your order very quickly. To make sure you
know what's happening with your order, we'll send you a series of emails including:
A confirmation as soon as we receive your order
An update when your merchandise has arrived at our Order Processing Center
A note to let you know your order has shipped that includes a tracking number
If one of our brand partners is delayed in sending your purchase to us, we'll make sure you know
what's happening with a special update email. We work hard with our brand partners to make sure
delays don't happen, but with so many brands in our growing portfolio we sometimes encounter
unforeseen issues. Please note: Packages cannot be shipped to post office boxes.
Is my merchandise insured?
Beyond the Rack insures all shipments against theft and accidental damage, at no cost to our members,
up to a value of $100. Once the merchandise has been delivered, the insurance ceases to be in effect.
Do you ship to international addresses?
Please note that Beyond the Rack no longer ships orders to addresses outside of North America.
Will I be charged sales tax?
The sales tax charged depends on where you ask us to ship the order as follows:
United States - New York: 7-8%, depending on the county (the actual tax will appear on the checkout page)
United States - Nevada: 6.85-8.1%, depending on the county (the actual tax will appear on the checkout page)
Canada - Quebec: 5% GST + 9.975% QST
Canada - Ontario, Newfoundland/Labrador, and New Brunswick: 13% HST
Canada - Prince Edward Island: 14% HST
Canada - Nova Scotia: 15% HST
Canada: all other provinces: 5% GST
Will everything I order be delivered in one shipment?
Note that if you purchase more than one item from the same event, or shop from more than one event, we may not
receive all of your merchandise from our suppliers at the same time. In this case, we may decide to ship to you
the item(s) that arrive first right away, then follow up with a second shipment (shipping for the second item(s)
is on us, of course) with a separate tracking number when the remaining item(s) become available. Also, Beyond
the Rack has several warehouses, so your merchandise may come in several shipments. You will be updated by email
regarding the status of your shipments and when they are packaged.
Why does Beyond the Rack need my Social Security Number (SSN) or IRS Number?
Under certain circumstances, and typically only for orders valued at $2,000 and more, Federal Government regulations require etailers like Beyond the Rack to capture this information as part of the ordering process. If you would like detailed information about why this is so, we invite you to visit the appropriate government Webpage.
What is consolidated shipping?
A consolidated shipment is a process put in place to ship a customer’s items together. If we have more than one package ready to be shipped to you, we will attempt to consolidate them into one shipment.
Why consolidate my shipments?
We know that you would rather receive your orders in as few shipments as possible, especially if you are not present when a delivery is made. This will reduce the amount of trips you need make to your local post office, and you may even save on shipping!
Will it take me longer to receive my shipments if the orders are consolidated?
We will make every effort to not delay any orders or items. As per our shipping policy, every item page on our site includes a ships-from-BTR date and a link to a delivery schedule map. Some items are eligible for 5-day shipping, while others can take 2-3 weeks from the time you click the Process Order button. Please allow one week from the date of shipment for your order to be delivered to you.
How will I know if my orders will be consolidated?
There is no way for you to know if your order will be consolidated. Once you receive your parcel, only then will you see on the packing slip that multiple items/orders are consolidated. For this reason we urge you to validate your orders.
How do I validate my orders once received?
Each parcel will contain a packing slip that will include the items shipped as well as the order number. We strongly suggest checking the packing slip to make sure every item listed is received. If there is ever a discrepancy, please contact customer service by phone or email.
What do I do if I am short shipped on a consolidated shipment?
If the number of items doesn't match what’s on the packing slip, you must let us know within three (3) days of delivery. We will then ask you to send us a copy of the packing slip. Once the copy of the packing slip has been received, we will investigate the whereabouts of your missing item. We will make arrangements to either ship you a replacement item or issue a full refund for the missing item as per your original method of payment.
Can I cancel orders that are consolidated?
An order can be cancelled and a refund applied (in the same manner of payment) before an event closes or prior to the item(s) being shipped, whichever occurs first. To cancel your order, please email email@example.com with your order number. A confirmation will be sent to you once we have successfully cancelled your order or item(s) on your order. Please allow 24 hours for the cancellation to go through. If your order has been shipped out, or is in the process of being shipped, we will be unable to cancel your order. You will need to follow the return and exchange procedures listed in the FAQ's section.
Will consolidated shipments cost me more?
No! Consolidating your orders may actually cost you less. If you qualify for a consolidated shipment, we may be crediting you the cost to ship one of your orders (*).
Will I receive a credit for my shipping if my orders are consolidated?
Yes, BTR will notify you by email that the lowest value of shipping has been applied to your BTR account. These shipping credits will not expire and will automatically be applied to your next order. Please note that orders with free shipping do not qualify for the shipping credit.
* In order to qualify for the consolidated shipping credit, two of the consolidated orders will have to have been shipped complete or the number of shipments required < the number of orders.
In other words, if two part-orders ship, you will not qualify for the shipping credit.
Can I choose to qualify for consolidated shipping?
No, unfortunately our system is automated to consolidate shipments when possible. It is not something you can opt in or out of.
How do I return orders/items if they come from a consolidated shipment?
The same return policy applies.
If you're not satisfied with an item, simply return it in its original condition within one year of receiving it and we'll apply a credit to your BTR account for the purchase price, less return shipping and handling charges. Credit will be applied once the item has been received and accepted by our Order Processing Center. In order for your credit to be processed promptly, please follow the Return and Exchange procedure listed in the FAQ’s section.

Unfortunately, White Glove service is not available in all areas.
What if my item is damaged upon delivery?
Should any of your White Glove items be delivered to you in a damaged condition, is the incorrect item, or if the number of items delivered doesn't match the delivery slip, you must describe the damages or missing item clearly on the White Glove Service delivery slip.

How do I cancel an order that is being delivered by White Glove Service?

To cancel your order, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your order number. A confirmation will be sent to you once we have successfully cancelled your White Glove order. Please allow 24 hours for the cancellation to be processed.

Important: You must include this sheet with your return—we encourage you to keep a copy for your records
Shipping Method A: Your order includes a return shipping label. The cost of using this label is $9.95, which will be deducted from your BTR account credit for the item(s) returned. To use this label: (i) identify the carrier who will be completing the return. This information can be found directly on the label; (ii) securely affix the label to the front of your package, then (iii) contact the carrier to either (a) arrange for a pick-up your package, or (b) get the address of their drop-off location closest to you, and bring it there.

Please hand-write on your package, the BTR Returns Centre address which appears on the pre-paid shipping label included with your order.
Please note: Our policy is to refuse “collect” packages. If we receive a collect package in error, the collect cost will be deducted from your BTR account credit.
What is a BTR account credit?
When a member returns merchandise under the satisfaction guarantee, they receive a BTR account credit that can be
applied to future purchases on our Website. The member is credited for the entire cost of the purchase less shipping
cost. We do not charge you a handling fee for your returns. Note that if a member returns merchandise because it is
damaged on delivery or faulty, Beyond the Rack will refund the purchase price, including shipping and handling, as
per your original method of payment. For example, if you paid the purchase price in part with an existing BTR
account credit and the rest with a credit or Visa Debit card, the credit or Visa Debit card portion will be refunded to your card, and your
BTR account will be credited with the account credit portion.
Can I return clearance or final sale items?
From time-to-time, we hold final clearance sales on items offered at extra discounted prices. Unfortunately, we cannot

are aware they are purchasing a no-refund/no-exchange item, unless defective.

credit card hasn’t been charged yet, your transaction will simply be voided. If you need to modify an order you’ve already
placed, please submit a new order for the item you want and proceed to cancel the item you no longer wish to keep.
