Should the product require repairs in terms of the warranty during the course of the joint warranty period, Cook4life will collect the consumers’ product in order to submit the product for repairs.
Kindly note that the extended warranty is a repair warranty and does not automatically entitle the Purchaser to a replacement of the product or a refund.
Upon submission of the product, the Purchaser must supply Cook4life with a proof of purchase of the original product.
After any repairs have been conducted on the product, Cook4life will notify the Purchaser that the product is available for collection. Cook4life will deliver the product to the consumer once it has been repaired within a period of 3 (three) months.
During the extended warranty period, should it not be possible to repair the product for whatever reason, Cook4life will replace the product with a new product to the same or better specifications than the original unit purchased. This new product may not include an extended warranty, but will carry a standard manufacturer’s warranty, starting on the date of issue of the new product.
If, for any reason during the extended warranty period, Cook4life is unable to supply a product with the same or better specifications than that of the original unit purchased, during the extended warranty period, Cook4life will supply the customer with an Cook4life gift card or online voucher to the same value of the original purchase, as indicated on the proof of purchase (invoice). Any special promotions or discount at the time of purchase, will not entitle the Purchaser to a higher value than the price paid for the product.
If, at any time, Cook4life should decide to refund any money paid for a product, the refund will be equivalent to the value (price) paid for the product at the time of purchase, as indicated on the proof of purchase (invoice). Any special promotions or discount at the time of purchase, will not entitle the Purchaser to a higher refund than the price paid for the product.
All Cook4life products are backed up by a manufacturer’s or supplier’s warranty within the first year of purchase. For more details on the exact manufacturer’s warranty of a product, kindly refer to the documentation supplied with your unit, on the manufacturer’s website or enquire at your nearest Cook4life branch.
This extended warranty will be added and registered to the specific product and to the Purchaser as a value added product and is not refundable or transferrable in any way
