Tips for Navigating our Site
• Daily Deal: With a new deal every 24 hours, A4C offers you great items at competitive online pricing. Check our site every day for the Daily Deal and save loads on Bluetooths, Cases, Chargers and other accessories. The Daily Deal ticker lets you know how much longer you have to order our special of the day, but order quick, as the Daily Deal is only available while supplies lasts. You can access the Daily Deal page here.
• Strike through pricing: Crossed out pricing on our website that is posted next to our actual sale price, is the original MSRP or list price for a brand new product. The advertised sale discount amount therefore will be comparing the pricing of our product (which may be refurbished or preowned - if stated in the product title) to that of a brand new product as purchased directly from the manufacturer.
• Finding Product Information: All the information that we can provide you with about an item is listed on our site under the 'Description' and 'Specifications' tabs. If you do not see the information you are looking for, try contacting the manufacturer for more information about specific product specifications.
• How to Use the Shopping Cart: Please understand that placing an available item in the shopping cart does not reserve it for you. An item is only assigned to your order once your order has been placed. Once an item is in your shopping cart, you can update it by deleting it from your cart or changing the quantity. After the item has been added, you can proceed to checkout or continue browsing our site, but remember, items won't stay in your cart forever.
• Search Terms: If you are shopping for a specific item, type a few keywords into the search box to see if we carry it. You can also try searching by category under Shop in the navigation bar, i.e. Tablets & eReaders, Audio, Cases, or by manufacturer.
• Creating an Account: Personalize the way you shop on our site by creating an A4C account. With an account, you can move through the checkout process faster, store multiple shipping addresses, view and track your orders in your account, add items to your Wishlist, easily compare items, and more.

• What if I see something I like but don't want to buy it just yet? If you see something you're interested in but aren't ready to make a purchase, you can add it to your Wishlist. That way, you won't have to search for the product when you're ready to order it. When you are ready to make the purchase, simply click the "Add to Cart" button and proceed to checkout.
• What if the product I want is out of stock? Due to our popular prices and high demand, an item you want may go out of stock before you have a chance to purchase it. We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience, but what you can do is click on the "Notify When In Stock" button and we will inform you when the item is back in stock.
• Quantity Limits: In order to ensure that the majority of customers can enjoy our great prices, we may place quantity limits on certain items.

• Refurbished Items: All products marked as Refurbished have been reconditioned here at A4C. We rigorously conduct a multi-step test process on each refurbished item to ensure they operate as intended. While small scratches may exist on these products, their performance and functionality have not been comprised. We guarantee all refurbished products to be fully functional. Products we sell as refurbished come with our 90 Day warranty.
•Certified Refurbished Items: Products marked as Certified Refurbished will be in better cosmetic condition than the 'refurbished' mentioned in the paragraph above. They have been certified by A4C (the seller of record) to look like new, and have been professionally personally inspected by our QC to pass a rigorous visual inspection. Each certified refurbished item ships with a full 90 warranty from A4C.
•Pre-Owned Items: The 3rd condition of items sold at A4C is Pre-Owned . These items too have been thoroughly tested by our engineers to ensure that they are in 100% full working condition, and they are covered by our risk-free 30-day "just because" return policy. There may be, however, visual signs of use from a previous owner. The item can show wear from consistent use, but it remains in good condition and works perfectly.

Please be patient when it comes to shipping as it will take a bit longer for you to receive your package, due to travel time and customs.

• Why doesn't my tracking number give me any information about my order? A4C does not provide tracking numbers for shipments weighing less that 3 oz. Therefore, if you placed a small order, you may not get any information about the location of your order when you click on the tracking number. That number simply lets you know that postage has been paid.
