Where the purchase price of merchandise or services is in excess of the outstanding balance on the Gift Card, the difference may be paid through any payment means accepted by ARDENE. The remaining balance on a Gift Card may be verified at any ARDENE Store or here. No outstanding balance on a Gift Card is redeemable for cash, except where required by law and, in such event, only at an ARDENE Store.

Merchandise or services purchased with a Gift Card shall be subject to the same exchange and return policies as are applicable to merchandise or services purchased at ARDENE Stores or through the Site using other methods of payment.
