The receipt of an order number or an email order confirmation does not constitute the acceptance of an order or a confirmation of an offer to sell.

Verification of information may be required prior to the acceptance of an order. Prices and availability of products on the Sites are subject to change without notice.

About Our Prices
Where a product listing on our Site references a higher price, typically denoted by a strikethrough (e.g. "$549"), such higher price represents the retail price suggested by the manufacturer or supplier. In the absence of a price suggested by the manufacturer or supplier, this price represents the highest price at which we offered or sold the product at some point in the past. For “Flash Deals”, where a product is temporarily being sold at a reduced price, an additional strikethrough price is presented that represents a recent previous price before the Flash Deal promotion. For members of the MyWay Program, if such higher price is accompanied by the MyWay logo, such price represents the offer price before applying MyWay Program benefits. The "Sale" tag on a product listing on our Site signifies that we are selling the product at a discount from a price in the previous 90 days. The Sandia International's Choice badge represents a shortlist of highly-rated, well-priced products we know customers love.
When we use the term “Closeout,” we mean either that the product has been permanently reduced and will not return to the original price or that the product is temporarily being sold at a reduced price in order to clear an overstock of either Sandia International or supplier inventory. Prices of products listed on our Site as “Closeout” may fluctuate during the “Closeout” promotion period for such products. For temporary “Closeout” pricing, such products may return to prices that are equal to or greater than their original prices upon expiration of the applicable “Closeout” promotion period.
