How do I claim a Start Card?
When you purchase the Start Card from us, you authorize us to charge your credit card, debit card, or other chosen electronic payment method.
The dollar value of the Start Card is a prepayment for a participating service. Participating services can be found on the program page.
We will send a purchase receipt to the email address you provide us at checkout. The Start Card receipt will have a unique order number associated with it that we will require to redeem the Start Card.
Treat your Start Card like cash! At our sole discretion, we will only redeem or refund unused Start Cards with a valid order number and the original receipt. Used or partially used Start Cards cannot be refunded.
Where is my Start Card purchase receipt?
Please check to make sure the email address is correct and contact us. We are not responsible for Start Cards that are undeliverable or not received due to your failure to enter an accurate email address.
If you have provided a correct email address, but the purchase receipt has not been received within a reasonable period, the following is a list of common reasons why delivery may have failed:
- Spam filter blocked the email;
- Recipient’s firewall blocked the email;
- Email inbox is over size limit; or
- Invalid email address.
Can I get a refund?
Unless otherwise required by law or permitted by the Start Terms, the dollar value of the Start Card is nonrefundable and may not be redeemed for cash.
Can I gift a Start Card?
Yes. Do not disclose your Start Card information to anyone unless you authorize them to use it. By disclosing your Start Card information, you hereby authorize the recipient to use your Start Card on your behalf.
Restrictions apply for the use of Start Cards for business or professional purposes:
- Start Cards may be used as business gifts, but may not be used for marketing, advertising, or promotional activities; and
- Start Cards cannot be resold absent our written consent. Any resale will only be authorized for the Start Card’s face value.
What if I lose my Start Card?
You are solely responsible for all transactions using your Start Card, including unauthorized transactions. Anyone who obtains possession of your Start Card information may use it.
We have no liability to you for any third-party fraud or unlawful activity associated with any Start Card balance. If we discover a Start Card or Start Card balance was sourced or derived from unlawful means, we may in our sole discretion, cancel all impacted Start Cards and retain all related Start Card balances without notice to you.

Start Cards have no expiration date nor does the value on the Start Card ever expire. There are no activation, service, dormancy, or inactivity fees in connection with your Start Card.
What is my Start Card balance?
When you purchase or use your Start Card, we will provide a receipt to the email address associated with the Start Card or Client account.
The receipt will indicate that the purchase was made using a Start Card and will provide the remaining balance of your Start Card. We will not send you statements of activity for your Start Card.
We will correct the balance of your Start Card if we believe that a clerical, billing, or accounting error has occurred. Please contact us If you wish to dispute a transaction applied to your Start Card. We are not obligated to review or correct billing errors unless you provide us sufficient notice for us to review your claim within sixty (60) days of the date of the transaction in question.
Assuming you provide sufficient details, we will review your claim. We will correct any errors promptly after our review. If we do not find any errors, we will explain what we found.
We reserve the right to change, end, or pause, any eGift program, as well as any Member’s ability to participate or receive Start Cards at any time and for any reason.

9. Dispute Resolution
The Parties will attempt to resolve any dispute out of or relating to the Start Terms through friendly negotiations amongst the Parties. If the matter is not resolved by negotiation, Parties will resolve the dispute using the below Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) procedure.
The Start Terms will be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of New Hampshire without reference to its conflict of law provisions. Any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to the Stype Start Program, the Start Terms, or the breach thereof will be settled by arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its Commercial Arbitration Rules, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
The place of any such arbitration will be in Hillsborough County, New Hampshire. The Parties also agree that the AAA Optional Rules for Emergency Measures of Protection will apply to the proceedings. This section provides the sole recourse for the settlement of any disputes arising out of, in connection with, or related to the Style Start Program or the Start Terms. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any action seeking injunctive relief will be submitted to the courts and will not be subject to this provision.
No arbitration relating to the Start Terms will include any additional person not a party to the Start Terms except by written consent of you, us, and the additional persons in question.
In no event will any demand for arbitration be made after the date when institution of legal or equitable proceedings based on such claim, dispute or other matter in question would be barred by the applicable statutes of limitation.
If the disputed amount is less than the jurisdictional limit for small claims, such a court will be used in place of arbitration.
Should there be any legal action between the Parties or arising out of the Start Terms, the prevailing party will be paid reasonable legal fees agreed upon through arbitration.
Any claim not subject to arbitration will be governed by the laws of the State of New Hampshire, without reference to its conflict of law principles and jurisdiction of any and all such disputes will lie in the state and federal courts sitting in Hillsborough County, New Hampshire. You consent to personal jurisdiction in the state and federal courts located therein and hereby waive all defenses of lack of personal jurisdiction and forum non-conveniens.
10.1 No Waiver
Any failure of either party to enforce any provision of the Start Terms, or any right or remedy provided for therein, will not be construed as a waiver, estoppel with respect to, or limitation of that party’s right to subsequently enforce and compel strict compliance or assertion of a remedy.
If any provision of the Start Terms is or becomes illegal, unenforceable, or invalid, such provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permitted and the remainder of the Start Terms will remain in full force and effect without being impaired or invalidated in any way.
Any rights or obligations contained herein that by their nature should survive termination of the Start Terms will survive, including, but not limited to representations, warranties, indemnity obligations, limitations of liability, and dispute resolution clauses.
10.4 Jointly Drafted
Each party has participated in negotiating and drafting the Start Terms, such that if any ambiguity or question of intent or interpretation arises, the Start Terms will be construed as if the Parties had drafted it jointly, as opposed to being construed against a party by reason of the rule of construction that a document is to be strictly construed against the party on whose behalf of the document was prepared.
