Balance Inquiries
To check your balance please call the JTV call center at 1-800-619-3000 (available 24 hrs/day).  

Usable for JTV Goods and Services Only
Remember that your Gift Card is redeemable ONLY to purchase JTV merchandise and services offered on JTV’s television broadcast, online at JTV.com or on the JTV mobile Apps. You cannot use the Gift Card with other merchants. For information on JTV, visit JTV.com.

To avoid any confusion, let us clarify a point about how you’ll use JTV Gift Cards.  Except for the exceptions we cover in these terms and conditions, you can use your Gift Card to purchase anything JTV sells, whether you see it on JTV’s television broadcast or on jtv.com or one of our mobile Apps.   But to redeem your Gift Card on the items you want to buy, you must call the JTV Call Center at (800) 619-3000 (available 24 hrs/day).

Limits on Cash Redemption
Unless otherwise required by law, your Gift Card is not redeemable for cash. A limited number of states have enacted statutes that require gift cards to be redeemable for cash in certain circumstances that are set forth in their statutes. For inquiries or additional information, contact us at 1-800-619-3000 (available 24 hrs/day).

Recurring JTV Payments
JTV’s StretchPay™ Program allows you to pay for our merchandise in installments.  You can use your Gift Card to make the first StretchPay payment (we call this your “deposit”), although we may need to make a small adjustment to that payment to set up your method of payment for future installments. More on this below. You can’t use your Gift Card to make payments on any existing installment plans, such as those you may have for previous StretchPay™ purchases.  Gift Cards also can’t be used to make payments on any credit account, such as a Discover Card or a JTV credit card.

If your Gift Card balance won’t cover your first payment on your Stretch Pay™ purchase (and the difference is more than $1), you may simply apply your Gift Card balance to the first payment, and we’ll charge your method of payment for the remaining amount. For example, if your first payment is $100 and your Gift Card balance is $40, we’ll reduce your Gift Card balance by $40 and charge your method of payment for what’s left over ($60).

If your Gift Card balance is larger than the amount of the first payment, we’ll need to add one small step--charging $1 to the method of payment you’ll use for your future payments. This allows us to set up your method of payment and verify that it’s valid for your installment payments. We’ll also need to add this step if you want to use your Gift Card and Brilliant Cash Rewards to make the first payment and the combined balances exceed the amount of that payment.  

Here’s an example of how this will work.  Nadine is purchasing a $500 item on Stretch Pay™.  She’ll have a total of five payments of $100. Nadine has $75 in her Rewards account and a $50 JTV Gift Card.  She wants to use them both for her first payment.  We’ll reduce her Rewards balance by $75.  We’ll then reduce her JTV Gift Card by $24 and charge her VISA card for $1. At that point, Nadine will have made her first StretchPay™ payment, and she’ll still have $26 left on her JTV Gift Card.  Her remaining StretchPay™ installments will be charged to her VISA card.

Purchase of Other Gift Cards; Returns of Gift Cards
You may not use a Gift Card to purchase another Gift Card or to make payments on any credit account, including a credit card balance. Purchases of both eGift Cards and Physical Gift Cards are not refundable and may not be returned once they are purchased.
 
Other Prohibited Uses
Your Gift Card cannot be used in any illegal transaction.

Card Not Present Purchases
Remember that your Gift Card is usable to make "card not present" purchases. As a result, you may use the card to make purchases over the phone.

Reduction of Card Balance
The initial available balance on your Gift Card will be an amount set at the time of activation and/or purchase in any amount from $25-$500. Thereafter, the available balance will be reduced by each authorized use of the Gift Card or as otherwise provided in the Terms and Conditions, except as prohibited by law.

Purchases for Less than the Card Balance
Remember that if you use your Gift Card to make a purchase for less than the available balance of the Gift Card, the remaining balance will not be paid in cash to you, unless a cash payment is otherwise required by law. See Goods, Services & Cash above. You will be able to use the remaining balance on the Gift Card to purchase other JTV merchandise and services by calling 1-800-619-3000 (available 24 hrs/day).

Purchases for More than the Card Balance
Your Gift Card is redeemable ONLY up to the available balance of your Gift Card. Any purchase amount greater than the available balance of your Gift Card must be paid with an alternative method of payment approved by JTV (for example, through use of a credit card).

Purchases using Gift Cards and Brilliant Cash Rewards
You can combine Gift Cards with your Brilliant Cash Rewards to make a purchase from us.

Returns and Exchanges of Purchases made with Gift Cards
Returns of JTV merchandise and services, which are purchased in whole or part with a Gift Card, are subject to our standard return policies and procedures.  For any purchases made only by redeeming a Gift Card, the item’s purchase price will be refunded in the form of a credit to your JTV account. Any charges connected with the return such as shipping or restocking fees (“Return Expenses”) will be deducted before the credit is made to your JTV account. Amounts paid using multiple methods of payment, such as a Visa card and a Gift Card, will be refunded in the same amounts to the original method of payment accordingly, less Return Expenses.  

For example, imagine Betty Lou bought a beautiful chrome diopside and zircon ring set in sterling silver for $89.99, and she snagged an offer with free shipping.  To buy the ring, she used the $50 balance on her plastic Gift Card and put $39.99 on her VISA card.  She later decided to return the ring and incurred a $6.99 shipping charge to return this item.  JTV would issue a $43.01 credit to her JTV account ($50 gift card amount less shipping charge of $6.99). JTV also would credit her VISA card for $39.99.  

Purchases made in whole or part using rewards from the Brilliant Cash Program and returns of those purchases are subject to additional terms under the Brilliant Cash Program 

See Terms and Conditions for the Brilliant Cash Program here.

Limits on Gift Card Purchase Amounts
The maximum value that can be associated with any one Gift Card at any given time is $500.00.  The total value of Gift Cards purchased in a single transaction cannot exceed $1,000. No single individual may purchase Gift Cards with a total value of more than $10,000.00 on any one calendar day.  

The minimum Gift Card purchase is twenty-five dollars ($25).

Card Type
Your Gift Card is a limited-value and limited-use card. It is not a credit card, a debit card, asset account, or a deposit account. Your Gift Card is not a bank issued card. The funds loaded on the Gift Card are not segregated or kept in a fund pending use of the card. Therefore, the Gift Card obligation is not backed by segregated cash funds. Gift Cards may be purchased and given as gifts or retained by the purchaser.  

Safeguarding - Lost, Stolen or Damaged Cards
Remember to safeguard your Gift Card. Although it is not a cash equivalent, it contains value and you should safeguard your Gift Card like cash. Your Gift Card will not be replaced if it is lost, stolen or used without authorization. Therefore, you will bear the risk of any Gift Cards that are lost, stolen or used without authorization.  

For physical Gift Cards (paper or plastic), risk of loss passes to the recipient as soon as the Gift Card is delivered to the designated carrier. JTV is not responsible for Gift Cards that are undeliverable or not received due to a purchaser’s failure to provide an accurate physical address or email address for the recipient.

See CashStar’s Terms and Conditions for eGiftCards for additional information if you or your recipient did not receive your eGift Card.  You may also contact Customer Support at (800) 619-3000 (available 24 hrs/day).
