11. Discount Policy

We at Barbelle Health have taken great care to ensure our pricing reflects a fair exchange for our high-quality Service. In our experience, discounts largely devalue a Service over time and create price wars amongst local small businesses which do the opposite of fostering a sustainable economy.   

In saying this, we do believe that Discounts have a certain role in our business to ensure inclusion and affordability for all. 

This section outlines our Discount Policy, Terms and Conditions. Discounts cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer unless the specific terms relating to the Promotional Discount Codes state that you can combine the specific discount code with other offers.   Our standard terms and conditions of sale apply in respect of any orders placed using Discount Codes and the Website Terms of Use for using our site also apply. We reserve the right to vary or discontinue the Discount Policy at any time.

In most cases we will ask for written consent from a parent / guardian and request the parent / guardian to accompany you to your Game Plan appointment. The parent/guardian must either sign or witness and approve the student’s signature on our Waiver of Liability.  We will then apply a discount to the membership of your choice. Presently, you must be at least 16 years of age to join Barbelle Health. We reserve the right to ask for proof of age when any person requests a student discount. 

B. Household Discount

 A 10% discount is offered per person to members joining Barbelle Health and living in the same household. We reserve the right to ask for proof of address in these circumstances.
