- Pricing, Taxes, Order Requirements, and Promotions
Pricing and Reported Savings
HOUSEWARE-US continuously works to offer competitive prices on everything we carry and we try to offer the lowest prices whenever possible. In certain instances and for certain products, we also report suggested savings as a percentage. The percentage savings we report are based on a comparison of prices for bulk or wholesale sizes of products available on the HOUSEWARE-US Sites against the prices for equivalent or similar bulk or wholesale sizes of products or retail sizes available on national e-commerce retail websites and mobile applications.
Items sold on the HOUSEWARE-US Sites or through the HOUSEWARE-US Services may be subject to tax, governmental charges, or deposit fees. In most cases, prior to submitting your purchase request, you will see an estimate of the taxes and other fees to be collected on your order. This amount will depend on various factors, including the items purchased, the shipment destination, and, in certain circumstances, the identity of the seller (if not HOUSEWARE-US). In certain limited circumstances and for certain third-party sellers, the tax amount may be included in the price of a product.
With respect to those products that are not sold by HOUSEWARE-US, such products will be subject to tax based on the sales tax collection obligations of the applicable seller. Applicable tax on such orders will be applied to the item price indicated by the seller. For these items, savings amounts will not always reduce the price at which tax is charged.
HOUSEWARE-US only ships to the 48 contiguous states and the District of Columbia. Due to carrier restrictions, items requiring truck delivery cannot be shipped to Alaska, Hawaii, U.S. territories, APO/FPO or internationally. Shipments are delivered by UPS®, FedEx®, or other LTL carriers. The exact delivery date of your order may depend on several factors, including, without limitation, the date and time you place your order, the schedules and processes of our shipping partners, holiday schedules, weather, and other factors. Even though we try to anticipate delays, we cannot predict or always prepare for delays caused by carriers, mistakes in delivery or shipment information, changes to orders, strikes, bad weather, or other similar circumstances. If there is a delay, we will do whatever we can to help move things along, although we cannot promise we’ll be able to resolve the delay. Please review our full shipping terms here. If you have questions about your delivery, please contact us at [email protected].

- Disputes – Agreement to Arbitrate Controversies
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY — IT SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT AND TO HAVE A JURY HEAR YOUR CLAIMS.
HOUSEWARE-USN and you agree that these Terms, and the use of the HOUSEWARE-US Sites and the HOUSEWARE-US Services, involve and affect interstate commerce and that the Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply govern the interpretation and enforcement of this Section 22.
In these Terms, the capitalized word “Dispute” shall mean any dispute, claim, or controversy arising out of or relating to the Terms (including, for example, any dispute about the validity or enforceability of the Terms), the HOUSEWARE-US Services, the HOUSEWARE-US Sites, your use of any of the HOUSEWARE-US Services, HOUSEWARE-US Sites, Promotions, or to any products or services sold or distributed by HOUSEWARE-US or otherwise through the HOUSEWARE-US Services or the HOUSEWARE-US Sites, your access or any other party’s access to and/or use of the HOUSEWARE-US Services and the HOUSEWARE-US Sites, and/or the provision of content, products, services, and/or technology on or through the HOUSEWARE-US Services and/or the HOUSEWARE-US Sites.
In the event of a Dispute, HOUSEWARE-US or you must give the other party notice of the Dispute. This notice must include a brief written statement that sets forth the name, address, and contact information of the party giving it, as well as the facts giving rise to the Dispute and the relief requested. You must send any such notice to HOUSEWARE-US by email and by U.S. Mail to 3033 N. 44th St., Ste. 330, Phoenix, AZ 85018. If HOUSEWARE-US has your contact information, we will send any such notice to you by U.S. Mail to the address you have set in your account settings and to your email address.
You agree to try to resolve any Dispute with us through informal negotiations which are to begin within 30 days of the date that any notice of Dispute is sent by email and U.S. Mail to the other party. You and we agree to use reasonable, good faith efforts to settle any Dispute through consultation and negotiations. If after 30 days of such consultation and negotiation, we still cannot resolve the Dispute and if you or HOUSEWARE-US do not want to continue reasonable, good faith efforts to settle the Dispute through consultation and negotiations, HOUSEWARE-US or you may then resort to the other alternatives described in this section.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Section 22, Disputes concerning patents, copyrights, moral rights, trademarks, and trade secrets and claims of piracy or unauthorized use of the HOUSEWARE-US Services or the HOUSEWARE-US Sites shall not be subject to the notice, 30-day negotiation period, or arbitration as otherwise required by this Section 22. Except as otherwise specifically set forth in this Section, if a Dispute of any kind between you and HOUSEWARE-US remains unresolved after 30 days of reasonable, good-faith efforts to settle the Dispute through consultation and negotiations, the Dispute shall be resolved by binding arbitration. This arbitration provision will also apply to any Dispute between you and any present or future parent, subsidiary, or affiliate of HOUSEWARE-US, or any employee, officer, director, or investor of HOUSEWARE-US.
Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court in that there is no judge or jury in arbitration. Arbitration seeks to resolve disputes more quickly and court review of an arbitration award is limited. Instead of a judge or a jury, the case will be decided by a neutral arbitrator who has the power to award the same damages as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow these Terms as a court would. HOUSEWARE-US and you agree that dispositive motions, including without limitation motions to dismiss and motions for summary judgment, will be allowed in the arbitration. The arbitrator must follow these Terms and can award the same damages and relief as a court, including injunctive or other equitable relief and attorney’s fees. HOUSEWARE-US and you understand that, absent this mandatory arbitration provision and other applicable Terms, HOUSEWARE-US and you would have the right to sue in court and have a jury trial. HOUSEWARE-US and you further understand that, in some instances, the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation and that the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court.
The arbitrator’s award will be in writing, shall be binding, and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Arbitration under this agreement shall be conducted by a single arbitrator, and at a location, governed by the Consumer Arbitration Rules and the Consumer Due Process Protocol (collectively, “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by these Terms, and administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and fee information are available at www.adr.org. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of any state or federal court to compel arbitration, stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules. You are responsible for all other additional costs that you may incur in the arbitration including, without limitation, attorney’s fees and expert witness costs unless HOUSEWARE-US is specifically required to pay such fees under applicable law. If for any reason a Dispute between HOUSEWARE-US and you is before a court (e.g., if the arbitration provisions are found unenforceable), HOUSEWARE-US and you agree to waive, to the fullest extent allowed by law, any trial by jury. As more fully set forth above, we also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights. If any provision of this arbitration agreement is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision shall be severed, and the remaining arbitration terms shall be enforced.
- Class Action Waiver
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS.
For purposes of this Section 23, we will also use the capitalized word “Dispute” to mean any dispute, claim, or controversy arising out of or relating to the Terms (including, for example, any dispute about the validity or enforceability of the Terms), the HOUSEWARE-US Services, the HOUSEWARE-US Sites, any products or services sold or distributed by HOUSEWARE-US or otherwise through the HOUSEWARE-US Services or the HOUSEWARE-US Sites, your access or any other party’s access to and/or use of the HOUSEWARE-US Services and the HOUSEWARE-US Sites, and/or the provision of content, products, services, and/or technology on or through the HOUSEWARE-US Services and/or the HOUSEWARE-US Sites.
HOUSEWARE-US and you agree to resolve any Dispute will be brought in an individual capacity, and not on behalf of, or as part of, any purported class, consolidated, or representative proceeding. HOUSEWARE-US and you further agree to not participate in any consolidated, class, or representative proceeding (existing or future) brought by any third party arising out of or relating to any Dispute with a third party.
If any court or arbitrator determines that the class/consolidated/representative action waiver set forth in this section is void or unenforceable for any reason or that arbitration can proceed on a class, consolidated, or representative basis, then the disputes, claims, or controversies will not be subject to arbitration and must be litigated in federal court located in Phoenix, Arizona. If any clause within this Class Action Waiver section is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that specific clause will be severed from this section, and the remainder of its provisions will be given full force and effect.
This Class Action Waiver section will also apply to any claims asserted by you against any present or future parent, subsidiary or affiliated company of HOUSEWARE-US, or any employee, officer, director, or investor of HOUSEWARE-US, and to any claims asserted by any of them against you, to the extent that any such claims is a Dispute.
