Tri-Media stands behind our products and services to guarantee 100% deliverability of our lists. In the event of non-delivery, a 3rd class mail refund will be issued to cover USPS costs up to .57/piece for manual returns and .31/piece for automated returns. (Since USPS does not charge for 1st class mail returns, the refund will be based on rental rate per thousand cost.) Returns must be received within 90 days of the invoice date, and only one check will be issued per invoice. No refund will be issued for postal return errors, or for refunds of less than $5.00.
