Sporkabowl currently accepts Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express for all orders. Payment for Products ordered will be processed at the time of placing such order. You agree to pay promptly all charges to your account (which includes items purchased and applicable taxes) for any order placed by you or anyone who you allow to use your customer identification number or password, including members of your family, friends or any other person. For your order to be accepted, your method of payment shall be validated and must have enough available funds required for the transaction. Upon approval, the order will be accepted for shipping and delivery. Sporkabowl reserves the right to establish a spending limit for your account. Your right to order Products is also subject to limits established by your payment card issuer.
If you are dissatisfied with a meal, meal ingredient or a meal’s appearance on arrival, please contact us at email@example.com and our customer service agents will we research the incident, and at their discretion, may offer a credit to the customer account. We may require photographic documentation of any meal with which you are dissatisfied before we issue a credit. Meals that did not meet your taste expectations are covered by a money-back guarantee of up to $100. Guarantee applies to your first order only. Refund requests in accordance with this guarantee must be made by phone or email within 7 days of delivery. Meals that arrive unfit can be credited to the account for use in a future order. We value photos of any improper food arrival to continue improving our packaging. A customer service agent may request photographs be sent to accompany the reported complaint. We encourage all customers to remove meals immediately from their box and place in the refrigerator, inspecting containers as they are transferred. Meals delayed by our third party courier must be communicated with our team in urgency so we may try to resolve this issue. Credit on orders that did not arrive due to courier or Sporkabowl fault will be given in the form of a credit to the customer account. Sporkabowl is not liable for packages undelivered due to incorrect addresses submitted by the customer, and a re-delivery fee may be charged to the customer account. Orders may be modified at any time until the weekly cutoff of Wednesday at 11:59 pm PST via our website or by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are unable to modify or cancel orders once the cutoff has passed as ingredients have been ordered.
We use reliable third-party delivery companies to deliver your meals, that will generally deliver your meals prior to 7 pm PST on your delivery date. Each box is carefully packaged to stay fresh until at least 10 pm PST on the day of delivery. However, to maintain the highest quality and integrity of the meals after delivery, we recommend that you immediately refrigerate the items when you receive them. Furthermore, you should inspect your package to ensure the contents arrive in a cool, refrigerated condition. The best way to do this is to check the meat and fish with a thermometer to ensure their internal temperatures are 41F or below. If a fresh food product arrives at above 41F, you should contact our customer service and discard the item.
If you are not home when a delivery arrives, our delivery person will leave the package for you at your door. Again, since our food is packaged with insulated liners and gel packs, it will remain cold and fresh until at least 10 pm PST.
In the case of inclement weather, we will deliver your order as soon as reasonably possible when the conditions permit. If your designated delivery location is inaccessible, rendering us unable to make the delivery, we will contact you to determine the best alternate location and/or date for the delivery.
For your convenience, Sporkabowl offers subscription services whereby you select a set of meals and a delivery date of your choosing and Sporkabowl sends those meals to the location you have selected on a weekly basis.
For subscription customers Sporkabowl will bill the credit card on file at the time of the purchase. By subscribing to our service you are agreeing to pay recurring periodic subscriptions for an indefinite period of time until paused or cancelled by you or us. You will not receive any advance notice of this payment but you will receive post-payment confirmation by email. It is your responsibility to maintain current, valid payment information with Sporkabowl. If your automatic recurring payment is declined, you will be contacted by phone or email. If we cannot contact you we cannot guarantee that your meals will be shipped.
Subscription customers have the ability to select, change, or cancel a meal delivery any time prior to the weekly cut-off time on Wednesdays at 11:59pm PST. Orders cannot be modified or cancelled after the cut-off time. Unless notified by the subscriber prior to the cut-off, Sporkabowl will prepare and ship the meals selected in accordance with subscription terms and bill the credit card on file in accordance with our normal billing procedures. Order cancellations must be submitted prior to the cut-off time to take effect for the next week’s delivery.
You can pause your subscription at any time; however, if you pause the subscription after the cut-off time has passed and an order has been placed, your order cannot be cancelled or changed. You must pause your subscription prior to the cut-off time to take effect for the next week’s delivery. You may un-pause at any time provided that Sporkabowl reserves the right to not permit the un-pausing of a subscription where Sporkabowl has previously elected to terminate a subscription by you.
