Conditions of Use
Welcome to Amazon Local. AmazonLocal LLC and/or its affiliates ("Amazon") provide the Amazon Local website (local.amazon.com), phone and tablet applications, and other online features to you subject to the following conditions. If you visit or shop at Amazon Local, you accept these conditions. Please read them carefully. In addition, when you use any current or future Amazon Local service, you also will be subject to the guidelines and conditions applicable to such service. If these conditions are inconsistent with such guidelines and conditions, such guidelines and conditions will control.
Please review our Privacy Notice, which also governs your visit to Amazon Local, to understand our practices.
When you visit Amazon Local or send e-mails to us or text us, you are communicating with us electronically. You consent to receive communications from us electronically. We will communicate with you by e-mail, texting or by posting notices on this site. You agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.
Amazon Local is a platform through which you can buy deals ("Deals") and claim coupons ("Coupons") that are redeemable for goods and/or services generally from local businesses in your area (collectively, these are referred to as "Merchants"). We refer to Deals and Coupons collectively as "Vouchers". Amazon Local is only a platform enabling you to purchase Deals and claim Coupons directly from Merchants. Amazon is not the seller or issuer of Vouchers that Merchants make available on the Amazon Local website. As seller or issuer of the Voucher, the Merchant (and not Amazon) is fully responsible for the terms and conditions for each Voucher, and for any and all injuries, illnesses, damages, claims, liabilities and costs suffered by or in respect of you or any other customer caused in whole or in part by the Merchant or its products and services. The Merchant is also responsible for complying with unclaimed property laws with respect to any unused Vouchers. Some states' unclaimed property laws may allow you to recover some or all of the value associated with unused Vouchers after a period of time. If you have questions regarding this, please contact the Merchant or your state's unclaimed property administrator, and not Amazon.
In addition to the conditions that apply to your use of the Amazon Local website and purchase or claiming of Vouchers generally, each Voucher you buy or claim through the Amazon Local website is subject to certain additional terms between you and the Merchant that apply to that Voucher ("Voucher Terms"). The Voucher Terms specific to a given Voucher appear in the "What You Need to Know" section of the page where you purchase or claim the Voucher and on the "Additional Standard Voucher Terms" page linked to from the What You Need to Know terms. The complete Voucher Terms (the What You Need to Know terms and the Additional Standard Voucher Terms) are also displayed on the printed Voucher. The applicable Voucher Terms form a contract between you and the Merchant. If you buy or claim a Voucher, you accept those Voucher Terms with the Merchant. Please read them carefully. Amazon is not a party to any of these terms between you and the Merchant. Vouchers are redeemable in only the state (or states) where the Merchant's locations specified on the Voucher exist.
IMPORTANT -- VOUCHER EXPIRATION POLICY: Most Vouchers sold or offered by Merchants will specify an amount that you pay for the Voucher (the "paid value") and an amount in excess of the amount you paid (the "promotional value"). Merchants may specify that the paid value or promotional value (or both) may expire after a specified date. For Vouchers redeemable for goods or services, Merchants are not permitted to expire the paid value in less than 5 years in all states. Further, Merchants are not permitted to expire the paid value of Vouchers that are redeemable in any state that prohibits expiration periods, including CA, CT, FL, MA, ME, MN, MT, NH, ND, NJ, OR, RI, and WA. Merchants are solely responsible for complying with all laws applicable to their Vouchers, including laws related to expiration.
If you are purchasing or claiming a Voucher that is redeemable for an event that is to take place on a specific date (e.g., a concert, art show, cruise, etc.), you must redeem the Voucher before or on the event date since the Voucher will not be redeemable thereafter. Unless otherwise specified in the Voucher Terms, you will not be eligible to receive a refund from the Merchant or use the Voucher if you fail to redeem the Voucher for the stated event date. Event dates are not treated as expiration dates under our Expiration Policy. Merchants are prohibited from incrementally reducing the paid value of a Voucher over time due to non-use or otherwise (e.g., through dormancy, service or similar fees).
For more information on expiration dates, please see our FAQ page and carefully review the Voucher Terms of each Voucher you purchase or claim to identify the expiration date(s) applicable to that Voucher.
BUYING OR CLAIMING VOUCHERS
When you buy or claim a Voucher we will send you a confirmation containing a link to the "Your Vouchers" page on the Amazon Local website where you can print out a copy of your Voucher. To redeem your Voucher, you generally will bring the printed Voucher to the applicable Merchant. However, specific redemption instructions may be included on the Voucher that will describe other redemption methods (such as entering the Voucher's code into a website or displaying the Voucher to a Merchant via a mobile device). Your Voucher will generally not be usable until the day after you purchased or claimed the Voucher. We will maintain the copy of the purchased or claimed Voucher on "Your Vouchers" page so that you may print it at any time, unless we issue you a refund.

TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY APPLICABLE LAW, AMAZON, LIVINGSOCIAL, AND MERCHANTS DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. NEITHER AMAZON, LIVINGSOCIAL, NOR ANY MERCHANTSWARRANT THAT THIS SITE; INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) OR SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THIS SITE; THEIR SERVERS; VOUCHERS SOLD OR MADE AVAILABLE THROUGH THIS SITE; OR ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS SENT FROM AMAZON ARE FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS.

Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your visit to Amazon Local or to products or services sold or distributed by Amazon or through Amazon.com or local.amazon.com will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this agreement.
There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of these Conditions of Use as a court would.
To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our registered agent: Corporation Service Company - CSC, 300 Deschutes Way SW, Suite 304, Tumwater, WA 98051. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules, including the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. The AAA's rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules. We will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. Likewise, Amazon will not to seek attorneys' fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location.
We each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration we each waive any right to a jury trial. We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
By visiting Amazon Local, you agree that the Federal Arbitration Act, applicable federal law, and the laws of the state of Washington, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern these Conditions of Use and any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and Amazon.
