Product Pricing and Availability

- All products are subject to availability.

- As part of our policy of continuous product development, all specifications, descriptions, images, prices and availability may be subject to change at any time without prior notification.

- Weights and dimensions are approximate.

- We pack some sizes of bag including our 5kg bags at the point of purchase. Unfortunately this can sometimes add an extra day to the time taken to dispatch your order.

- We endeavour to get the weights for our products as close as possible but there can sometimes be a small variance (particularly with products such as fat balls where one ball can make quite a bit of difference).

- Fat balls are sold by weight, with approximate numbers for your convenience. As such, the number may be slightly more or less than the advertised number.

 

Orders and Payments

- We accept payment by most major credit and debit cards, as well as via PayPal. Payment will be taken from your account at the time of ordering.

Buy Now Pay Later (BNPL)

- We offer several options at the checkout which can be used to spread the cost of your order over a period of time. The options available will vary depending on the service you choose and what is available to you. It is the BNPL providers decision on whether they offer you their services, we have no control over their decision. Not all methods may be available at once.

- Refunds for an order bought using a BNPL provider are exactly the same as standard orders. If it's a part refund and you still have a remaining balance left to pay, then your payments will be adjusted. If its a full refund then any future payments will be cancelled.

Competitions

We run competitions on our website, social media channels, blogs and through our emails periodically. The below terms and conditions set out your rights when you participate:

- All prizes are as stated, non-transferable, cannot be exchanged and have no cash value.

- If you send us your photos for any reason (not just competitions), you agree that we may use these in our marketing materials. Where appropriate and at our discretion, we will give credit to the photographer.

- Winners have 30 days to claim their prize from when we first attempt contact. We will do our utmost to contact the winners using the details provided.

- If the winner does not come forward to collect their prize within 30 days, we reserve the right to contact the next runner up, or withdraw the prize completely. If you are contacted and do not make arrangements with us to collect your prize before the 30 days are up you lose your right to any prize.

- While we do not anticipate needing to, we reserve the right to alter or withdraw the prize at any time.

- The closing date is stated on each competition. Any entries received after that date will not count.

- No purchase is necessary (unless stated otherwise - e.g. place an order for your chance to win).

- Competitions are open to UK residents only aged 18 or over (unless stated otherwise, e.g. kids colouring competitions).

- Prizes are shipped out as quickly as possible, but may take up to 28 days to arrive.

- By entering any of our competitions, you agree to the storing of your information inline with the competition and that we may use your details to contact you should you win. Where stated we may also use your details for marketing purposes.

- Unless stated otherwise, you can only enter each competition once.

- Please refer to the marketing material for any additional terms and conditions relating to that competition (e.g. if its a competition, check the email for additional terms).

- We reserve the right to withhold prizes in extreme circumstances, although we will do our best to avoid this (for example, but not limited to if an entrant/customer is found to have abused the process or cheated)

 

Discounts and Promotional Offers

- All discounts are as specified in the marketing material associated with them. Refer to this page for accompanying conditions.

- To redeem discounts using a promotional code, the discount code must be entered into your order at the time of purchase (at the basket stage). Discounts cannot be applied retrospectively after you have placed an order and it is the customers responsibility to ensure this has applied to an order.

- If you successfully add a discount voucher to your order, then alter your order, you may lose your code. i.e. if your amended order no longer qualifies for the discount. Please make sure you double check BEFORE placing your order

- Promotional offers/discount codes cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer unless specified otherwise on the marketing material. If you have multiple discount codes, it is up to you which one you want to use. You cannot use more than one at once.

- We reserve the right to withdraw any offer at any time, although we will try and avoid this

- We reserve the right to alter the discount or gift at any time. Again we will try and avoid this if we can.

- All discount codes are single use unless we specifically specified otherwise.

- We reserve the right to prevent certain offers from being used alongside other offers.

- All offers have a specified time frame on them. We cannot accept offer codes after the expiration time - even just a few minutes past.

- Many 3rd party websites claim to offer discount codes for our site. Only official codes from Bargain Bird Food are valid on our sites, we will not accept any codes found to be available on 3rd party websites and reserve the right to withdraw these codes immediately if a code is leaked to a 3rd party site.

- For promotions requiring a minimum spend, e.g. 'spend over £100 for a free gift', the £100 refers to the amount you actually pay. Not the amount before any other discounts are applied.

- Any delivery offers (such as 'Free Express') exclude heavy orders, large items (e.g. furniture) and made to order products (e.g. stone bird baths).

- We take every precaution to maintain our promotions for the stated period of time, however on occassion we may need to revoke a discount before it's expiry date. For example - in situations out of our control that could have an adverse effect on the business.

- Quantity based promotions (e.g. x% off 2 or more items) apply to individual items only. A bundled products made up of other products still counts as 1 item.

- We reserve the right to prevent certain offers from being used alongside other offers to prevent code stacking and any other situation where we would lose money.

- Certain products are excluded from discounts. These include, but are not limited to; gift cards, furniture and some sale products. For example we sometimes heavily discount our sunflower hearts, but the use of a discount code on them would mean we lose money. Hence we reserve the right to temporarily add and remove products from discount codes to protect our business.

- We reserve the right to cancel any order found to be abusing the terms on this page. i.e. using discount vouchers to get more than intended off the purchase price. Whilst we do everything we can to avoid this, we do reserve this right to protect our business.

 

Email Offers

- Offers, gifts and discounts cannot be added to any order after the order has already been placed.

- Please follow the instructions in the email (or landing page if applicable) to get the specified offer.

- Certain offers may require you to take a secondary action to add your item. For example manually add the item via a popup after entering a discount code.

- When we advertise an offer with a specific weight, multiples or bundles are not included unless explicitly stated otherwise. For example if we offer a discount on a 12.55kg bag, the 25kg (2x 12.55kg) bundle is not included unless stated otherwise.

- All of our email offers include the dates and details for the offer. These are final.

- We do our absolute best to make sure that our emails go out with the correct information. If something slips through the net (for example an incorrect price), we will send out a follow up email to correct the price as soon as we can. Unfortunately we cannot honour any mistakes as these would be at the detriment of the business.

- We sometimes do fantastic discounts via email. However if these leak out to discount sites we may need to pull offers early to protect those offers intended to be exclusive to our loyal customers.
