Best Price Guarantee: IR will guarantee that Products purchased through IR will have the lowest combined price of the IR posted lowest market price, less any loyalty currency (“Combined Price”) over a market price of any other qualified seller available to the general public.

1. Notifying IR of a Claim. Member must notify IR concierge within twenty-four (24) hours after purchase to make claim under the Best Price Guarantee. Verifiable proof is required of the public availability of the lower price. If Member finds a price lower than the Combined Price by greater than one (1) U.S. dollar and Members’ request is approved, IR will match the verified lower price. Member may be responsible for any change or cancellation fees. To verify a lower price, Member may be required to provide proof by providing website addresses as directed by an IR representative. IR reserves the right to determine the validity and authenticity of the proof provided. All Claims are subject to verification by IR.
