Thanks for visiting the 2dqcard.co.nz website of Two Degrees Mobile Ltd (2degrees) and Q Card. By using our website you agree to comply with all applicable New Zealand laws and to be bound by the following terms and conditions.

What’s the 2dqcard.co.nz shop?

The 2dqcard.co.nz shop is your place to get a 2degrees SIM card loaded with 12 months’ worth of $19 Carryover Combos and purchase the latest top-brand mobile devices using your Q Card or Q Mastercard.

Important things to know

When you shop online with us, we’ll assume you’ve read and agree with these things along with any other terms and conditions that we show you while you shop. If you have any questions that aren’t answered here, feel free to call 2degrees on 0800 022 022 day or night.

Who’s who?

As you read through, we’ll often use the word “you”. This refers to anyone who uses the 2dqcard.co.nz shop. Similarly when we say “we”, “our”, “us” or “2degrees” we’re talking about Two Degrees Mobile Limited and/or Q Card and any related company that provides you with 2degrees goods or services.

Buying things

You need to have a Q Card or Q Mastercard to use the shop. Also, it’s important that you give us all the information we need otherwise we may not be able to complete your order.

When you place an order, you’re making an offer to buy something from the 2dqcard.co.nz shop according to these terms and conditions. From there, we’ll most likely accept your order by processing your payment and sending you the things you bought. But we may, for any reason, decline your order or a part of it. If that happens we’ll always let you know using the email address you’ve given us, or by phone. We don’t consider any order to be accepted until we’ve processed your payment and sent out the things you bought.

Keeping things accurate

We always aim to make sure everything you read in the 2dqcard.co.nz shop is both up to date and accurate. But you need to know that occasionally information in the 2dqcard.co.nz shop might have errors or omissions. While we do our best to avoid that, we can’t take any liability for these errors or omissions. Also, we may change the information in the 2dqcard.co.nz shop from time to time without notice.

Choice of colours

We always do our best to accurately display and describe the colours of anything you see advertised in the 2dqcard.co.nz shop. Having said that, we can’t guarantee the colour of anything delivered to you will exactly match the colour you see on your screen. Partly that’s because the colours on computer screens and printers can vary quite a lot.

What you pay

All prices are in New Zealand Dollars and include GST.

If for some reason we have something listed with the wrong price or some incorrect information, or we are out of stock, we reserve the right to cancel your order (regardless of whether you’ve paid for it). But if you’ve already paid for an order that needs to be cancelled we’ll refund you in full and let you know what we’ve done using the contact details you gave us when you placed your order.

Finally, the things we sell in the 2dqcard.co.nz shop (and the price of them) may change at any time without notice.

The way you pay

You can buy things from the 2dqcard.co.nz shop with a Q Card or Q Mastercard on a Flexi Payment Plan, just as long as those cards are valid.

Cancelling or changing your order

When you make an order and get your order number, you have committed to buying the item(s) from the 2dqcard.co.nz shop. Having said that, we understand that sometimes people make mistakes. So if that happens, call 2degrees on 0800 022 022 straight away (and in any case within 7 days) and we’ll do our best to fix any problems. As long as your order hasn’t been processed, we should be able to make any changes you need. We may even be able to cancel the transaction if that’s what needs to happen.

Our “Change Your Mind Guarantee”

We know that sometimes things arrive that aren’t quite what you wanted. So we’ve designed the “Change Your Mind Guarantee”.

If you need to return a mobile device just call us within 20 days of your order. As long as the mobile device is still packaged up like new, we’ll take it back with no questions asked. By “packaged up like new” we mean the mobile device is in its original box, the box is unopened and undamaged, and all external wrapping and seals are intact.

If you change your mind on a mobile device, call 2degrees on 0800 022 022 and we’ll send you out a postage-paid courier bag, together with a Change of Mind form.  You need to complete the Change of Mind form and post this back, together with your unopened mobile device, to the address given on the form within 30 days of purchase.

If you return a mobile device that we don’t consider to be “packaged up like new”, we won’t be able to refund you. Instead we’ll give you a call and we may also ask you to pay for the handset to be sent back to you.

Unfortunately, the “Change Your Mind Guarantee” doesn’t apply to SIM cards.

However, if we consider that your new handset is not “packaged up like new” then we won’t be able to refund you and you will have to pay us the remaining balance outstanding on that handset or an early termination charge (as the case may be) if you wish to terminate the Plan to which your new handset is connected to. We may also ask you to pay for the handset to be sent back to you.

Getting things delivered

We can only deliver things you buy from the 2dqcard.co.nz shop to physical addresses in New Zealand. This doesn’t include PO Boxes or Private Bags.

We’ll email you confirmation when your order is sent. If we’re sending something in or around Auckland it should arrive ‘next working day’. Any orders sent to the rest of New Zealand could take up to two working days to arrive. But whenever you place an order we’ll send a ‘track and trace’ ID with your confirmation email so you’ll always know exactly where your order is.

Getting things delivered on time is important to us, but we can’t guarantee delivery times. So we can’t be liable for any loss, cost or expense caused by delay in delivery.

Couriers need a signature before they’ll hand over an order and they won’t deliver to addresses that are obviously unoccupied. So if you’re not there, or they aren’t sure that everything is as it should be, they may decide that it’s best not to deliver your order. In that case, they may leave a card for you to call them and arrange for your order to be redelivered or picked up from the nearest depot.

We’re responsible for the items you’ve ordered until the order is signed for by you or someone on your behalf. Once you’ve got the order, it’s yours and you’re responsible.

Paying postage

For a limited time we’ll pay all courier charges for all the purchases that you make from the 2dqcard.co.nz shop. When we change this we’ll make it very clear on the website.

Sending things back (Returns Policy)

If for any reason the handset or SIM card we send you isn’t exactly what you ordered, or turns out to be faulty, we’ll do our best to get that fixed really quickly.

Just contact us on 0800 022 022 day or night as soon as possible and we’ll send you a postage-paid courier bag so you can send the order back to us.

Change of Mind / Wrong Device

If you wish to return a mobile device because you have changed your mind or the device is not what you thought it was, then you may be able to do so. Please see the “Change Your Mind Guarantee” section above for more information.

In addition, we if have sent you the wrong device, we’ll replace it for you at no cost. Just make sure that the box of the device you receive is unopened and undamaged, and all external wrapping and seals are intact.

You’ll also need to fill out a form that we’ll send with the courier bag and include a copy of your receipt. It’s important to note that we’re not responsible for the items you send back until they arrive at 2degrees.

Faulty Device

If somehow the device we sent you turns out to be faulty as soon as you open it up then we will replace it for you at no cost.  Just call us within 7 days of purchasing your device on 0800 022 022 and we will send you a courier bag so you can return it.  A different process applies if you purchased an Apple device – please see below for details.

If we take a look at your handset and it turns out not to be faulty then we’ll send it back to you without replacing it or giving you a refund.  

If the device you purchased from us stops working at some point during the applicable manufacturer’s warranty period, just call us on 0800 022 022 and we will let you know how you can return the device for repair.

At this point, you may need to pay a bond to cover the cost of inspection by the manufacturer. If there is a genuine fault with your mobile device you’ll get the bond back and the manufacturer will repair or replace your mobile device as stated in their warranty terms. Warranty claims are also subject to the other terms and conditions that you’ll find in the manufacturer’s warranty applicable to your device.

If you need to send a mobile device back for repair or replacement, there is the chance you might permanently lose any contacts, ringtones, messages, games or other downloads that you have saved into your handset. So we recommend that before you send a handset back to us, you make a back up of this data. 2degrees isn’t responsible for any loss of data from your handset in the case of repair or replacement.

Apple Devices

Please note that if you have purchased any Apple device and on receiving the device it turns out to be faulty or is faulty at any time during the manufacturer’s warranty period, just call us on 0800 022 022 and we will let you know how you can return it for repair.  We will not require you to pay a bond in respect of your Apple device and if there is a genuine fault with the device the manufacturer will repair it or replace it in accordance with the terms of their warranty. Please read the manufacturer’s warranty that comes with your Apple device carefully.

How the law looks after you

Whenever you buy something as a consumer you’re looked after by the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993. 2degrees is totally committed to meeting all our responsibilities under the Act. The only time you aren’t covered by the Act is if you’re buying something for a business (see below). Also, there are the other things that we’ve mentioned in these terms, or elsewhere in our Prepay Terms and Conditions that apply to your use of the 2dqcard.co.nz shop and the purchase of products from it that may limit our responsibilities outside of the Act.

If you buy something from the 2dqcard.co.nz shop for your business, the Consumer Guarantees Act does not apply. So that means that our liability to you (or anyone claiming through you) is limited to the amount you paid for the specific product that your claim relates to. This doesn’t affect your rights under our “Change your Mind” guarantee or our Returns Policy.

Looking after your information

We take this very seriously and will comply with the 2degrees Privacy Policy. When you use the 2dqcard.co.nz shop we understand that you accept this Policy as the way we collect, hold and manage your personal information.

Your order number

If you buy something from the 2dqcard.co.nz shop and need to talk to us about it, it’s much easier if you can give us the order number. If you don’t have that, you’ll need to know the credit card number you used to complete the order. That’s so we can make sure you are who you say you are.

Credit Card Security

It’s really important that you can use your credit card safely in the 2dqcard.co.nz shop. All of the payments are processed by Flexi Cards own gateway that complies with best practice and industry security standards.

Changes to these terms and conditions
