6th roll concept
What is 6th roll concept?
You will receive 1 point for each roll of snus that you buy and when you have collected five points you will get the following roll at HALF THE PRICE. Accordingly 1 roll = 1 point and at 5 points you can buy the 6th roll at half-price. The 6th roll concept means that it should be profitable for you to recommend your friends and relatives about our site. This is one of the reasons behind this concept; you will benefit from ALL purchases that people you have recommended have done (only valid when purchasing rolls).
I have placed an order but no points are shown on my account, how come?
The reason for that you have not received any points for you purchase are that you have not bought whole rolls of snus, just single cans. You will receive 1 point for each roll of snus that you buy.
What happens with my personal data?
We only use your data in purpose to perform your order as efficient as possible. You can therefore be calm that we will NOT give third part any data.
Is the snus really fresh?
We get deliveries from the producer several times per week so the snus is always as fresh as it could be. As a result you are always guaranteed to get perishable goods directly sent home to you.
Why can I not order American snuff?
We are sorry to say that we only sell Swedish snus, the American snuff are not available in the Swedish market. The moist snuff products of Swedish Match America are only sold throughout the US.
How is it with the durability?
Durability is a matter of many parameters that are difficult to prevail over. Our recommendation is to store the snus dark and cold. Snus is perishable and will best be stored in a refrigerator. If you store snus right the shelf life for portion-packed snus is about 20 weeks, loose snus 14 weeks, and for the dry assortments about 30 weeks. Some snus brands have even longer storage times such as the Offroad snus.
Could I cancel my order?
If you have changed your mind and want to cancel your order is this possible until the order has entered the shipping process. After your order is sent it is not possible to cancel your order. You need to contact us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org if you like to cancel an order. If you by mistake have ordered the wrong snus or changed you mind we will not accept returns or replacements. Swedish snus is a perishable item that cannot be sold again. The same applies if there is any damage or loss that is out of our control during shipping.
BuySnus.com shall have no liability to you for any failure to deliver goods you have ordered or any delay in doing so or for any damage or defect to goods delivered that is caused by any event or circumstance beyond its reasonable control.
