Course Offer QuestionsAre the Deal Caddy Course Offer deals returnable or refundable?
Each Deal shall have a “Purchase Value” (i.e., the actual amount you spent to purchase the Deal) and a “Promotional Value” (i.e., the total value of the Deal you purchased). The Promotional Value of the Deal will expire after the date noted on each individual Deal, but the Purchase Value of a Deal shall be valid for a much longer period of time (as determined by the Partner and in accordance with applicable law). For example, if you purchase a Deal with a Purchase Price of $50 for which you receive a “Stay and Play” package valued at $100, the Purchase Value of that Deal is $50 and the Promotional Value of that Deal is $100. Upon the Expiration Date of the Deal you will be unable to redeem the full “Stay and Play” package, but you will be able to redeem $50 (the Purchase Value) worth of goods/services/experience from the Partner, for so long as the Partner honors the Purchase Value. Please refer to the Terms of Service for further explanation. If you have a special circumstance, please contact Customer Service at email@example.com.Can I cancel my Course offer purchase?
You may only cancel your purchase if the deal has not yet tipped. To cancel, contact Deal Caddy Customer Support at 800-332-8229.What if the Course offer expires before I redeem?
Unfortunately, expired Deal Caddy deals can’t be redeemed. It is important to redeem your deal before the offer expires. After expiration, you may use the purchase value worth of goods/services/experience from the Partner.I cannot find how to redeem in my account.
You cannot redeem a deal until after it has tipped by meeting the minimum number of buyers required. Once the deal tips there will be either a Print link to download and print a PDF voucher or a Redeem link that will allow you to redeem the deal online.I got rained out at the course, what do I do?
Please contact the course directly to have them issue you a rain check. If you have any issues with receiving a rain check, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Double check that someone else didn’t accept the delivery, and if you still cannot find it, we recommend to wait until the end of the day. Sometimes packages can show delivered when they’re still in transit.My package shows as being undeliverable. What does this mean?
There are several reasons that could account for why your package is undeliverable. Below are a few of the main reasons:
- Incorrect address. If the address we received is incorrect or outdated, then your package will be returned to us.
- P.O. Boxes. If you are having your item shipped to a P.O. Box, sometimes the item is too large and we must have a street address to deliver it.
