Voucher code terms and conditions
Official SCI-MX voucher codes entitle you to an extra percentage, value or free item (or any other specific terms of the voucher code in question) off your next online order from sci-mx.co.uk.
To claim your discount, you must enter the specific code at the basket page at the time of purchase. Voucher codes can only be used once per customer and household unless stated otherwise. Customers may not create additional accounts in order to use single use codes more than once and SCI-MX reserves the right to cancel such orders.
Only one voucher code or referral code can be used per order. Voucher codes cannot be used in conjunction with referral codes or other promotions or offers. Voucher codes remain our property and are not transferable. There is no cash alternative.
Unless stated otherwise, voucher codes and other offers are not open to employees of SCI-MX or Supreme Imports Ltd, and we reserve the right to withdraw them, refuse or restrict the order at any time.
Voucher codes and/or discounts purchased (or provided) from third party voucher code websites will be subject to any further Terms and Conditions found on the website (or the third party's website's email) in question.
By registering for an account with SCI-MX and placing an order with us you are automatically enrolled on the referral scheme. You are eligible to receive SMX Points for referrals made after you have placed your first order. There is no earning limit on referral programme points.
New customers must enter your referral code when they purchase. Strictly only one SCI-MX account per individual and per household. We use sophisticated technology to check for this. The issuing of points is subject to a 7-14 day delay to allow anti-fraud checks. During this period points will be marked "pending" and will not be available for use until checks have been adequately passed.
All points have a 365 day expiry date. SCI-MX reserves the right to withdraw or amend this scheme at any time without prior notice. SCI-MX reward points are non-transferable and have no cash value. Cancelled and partially or fully returned orders are not eligible. Any review or decision made by SCI-MX is final and not open to further correspondence.
A "cash out" option is available to those customers who have referred 20 customers or more and have at least 20,000 SMX Points in their account which are active. Cash out is paid on application via PayPal to the verified owner of the account, typically within 7-14 days after checks have been passed.
Having an account with SCI-MX will give you access to the reward scheme programme. We reserve the rights to change the reward scheme at any time without prior notice. The points balance on the reward scheme is not a recognised currency. The points cannot be transferred, exchanged or reproduced. Your points can only be redeemed at sci-mx.co.uk.
All points that have been issued to you will have a 365 day expiry date. You will use your older points first. The points you collect must be used for online purchases - they cannot be used via any other purchasing method. Only one account can be created per customer. Any abuse of this system will result in a suspension of both accounts created (see point 12 in our terms and conditions).
Reward points are issued for each £1 spent (rounded down to the nearest pound) on individual products and not the total basket. We hold the rights to remove or suspend the points gained from the reward point scheme at any point.
Customers can view an audit trail of all orders and referral transactions that affected their reward points in their Profile section.
Points cannot currently be used to pay the balance on an entire order. Customers can use points to settle up to 90% of their order's balance.
If any concerns or queries arise, please do not hesitate to contact us.
