Therefore, we recommend that you please read them carefully before you use this website.
The Price Match Guarantee
PLEASE NOTE our Price Match Guarantee applies only to identical lighting products from the same manufacturer. The competitor must be an AUTHORIZED DEALER of the product, and it must be a stock item available in our store or available for shipment and not on a manufacturer’s extended back order status. We must be able to identify the competitors product with a manufacturer’s item number and product size description. For local competition, a written quote from a competing vendor (dated within the past 10 days) for the same product(s) must be presented. To match online pricing we must be provided the website link, and be able to verify any online price the same day you are in our store. The website must be a manufacturer’s authorized dealer site. Shipping & handling (if applicable) will be factored in to determine final price. Our Price Match Guarantee does not apply to products seen or obtained through on-line flash sales, buying clubs/membership sites, Ebay, or similar unauthorized online competitors. Price Match Guarantee does not apply to clearance/closeout or discontinued items.
Coupons cannot be combined with any other special offers, instant quotes, or quoted discounts. Coupons are limited to one per customer per order and are available for one-time use only. Coupons and other discount offers are not transferable or redeemable.
We are obligated by Kansas, Missouri and Florida law to charge sales tax on items delivered to addresses in those states.
We offer free ground shipping for specific manufacturers in the 48 continental United States on most orders over $100.00. All orders under $100.00 will be charged a $20.00 shipping and handling fee. If an order is modified after the time of sale and the order balance falls below $100.00, the customer will be charged a $20.00 shipping and handling fee.
Free shipping does not apply to selected manufacturers, sale items, and oversized or special order items. We will notify you of the additional charges when the order is received if applicable.
We ship within the 48 contiguous United States.
We are unable to ship to P.O. Boxes or military APO/FPO addresses.
Most shipments will ship via United Parcel Service or Fed Ex.
Shipping fees are based on a per item charge based on the weight of the item, the size of the box, and the final destination. Delivery of in stock items can take from 5 to 21 business days depending on the final destination of where the product is being delivered.
Shipping charges incurred due to incorrect address, zip code, or the refusal of an item will be charged back to the customer.
If a product is backordered and has a lead time exceeding 60 days, Lightstyle of Tampa Bay will notify you and provide 24 hours to cancel the order of the backordered product free of charge.
If your purchase or project is time sensitive, we suggest that you contact us via phone to inquire about expedited shipping services.
We are not responsible for any costs associated with shipment delays. We strongly suggest that any professional services required to install your product(s) not be scheduled until your order has arrived and has been inspected.
If you require signature service, please place your order with a sales representative. Signature service is not included in our default shipping service, and Lightstyle of Tampa Bay cannot be liable for items lost in shipment.
Some larger items or orders may have to be shipped via common carrier. In this case, you are responsible for removing the items off the back of the truck to your home. A responsible party, over 18 years of age, must be present to accept delivery and sign for the shipment. Extra charges may apply to common carrier truck shipments and you will be notified of these prior to shipping. Oversized items may be subject to additional shipping charges.
If you wish to pick up your purchase at one of our showrooms you must first call to place your order with a representative.
You will receive an order confirmation email with a list of all items ordered. Please check this email to confirm its accuracy and contact us immediately if you have any questions. Lightstyle of Tampa Bay is not responsible for items purchased in error and will not assume any cost to exchange items ordered in error.
Pricing and Product Information
We make every effort to assure accuracy in pricing and product information within our store and on our website. From time to time pricing or product information provided by the manufacturer may be inaccurate. In those cases we reserve the right to verify the correct price and/or product information with the manufacturer and make the pricing and/or product information correction on our website or in our store prior to selling the item. In cases where incorrect pricing and/or product information errors occur our Price Match Guarantee is void. For online orders, we reserve the right to cancel the order. A complete refund will be made for any items that have not yet been shipped. In the event of inaccurate product information or pricing information, our sole responsibility will be to accept the product return and provide a customer refund.
Changing or Cancelling Your Order
Lightstyle of Tampa Bay attempts to process orders as soon as they are submitted. We will make every effort to handle these with the same speed and efficiency as we handled the original order. However, we cannot accept changes or cancellations for orders that have already been processed or shipped.
Customers wishing to change or cancel their order may contact us via phone, before 4pm. If you need to contact us for a cancellation or a change after 4pm, please email or fax your request.

If the product is refused upon delivery, the standard return policy will not apply. The customer will be responsible for the manufacturer’s restocking fee which will be a minimum 25% of the purchase price of the item; as well as both initial and return freight charges.
Accepting Shipments and Damaged Items
Before accepting a delivery, you are required to inspect each and every box for damaged or missing items. By accepting delivery of a shipment, you acknowledge that the items were received in 100% usable condition and that you have received every item listed on the packing slip. Please be aware to note on the shipping receipt any and all visible damage to the packaging of your items. Customers who sign for delivery and fail to notate any damage on the delivery receipt, assume responsibility if the merchandise is damaged. Any damages not noted on the delivery receipt may be exempt from any refunds or credits.
Refunds will only be issued under the following conditions:
The customer must notify us in writing via email or fax within 15 days of receipt of the delivery that they wish to return the product. Returns cannot be accepted 15 or more days after delivery. A customer service representative will provide you with instructions for returning the product using a Return Goods Authorization number. Returns will not be accepted without a Return Goods Authorization number.
In order to keep our low prices, the items must be suitable for resale. The customer will be responsible for minimum 25% restocking fee, the original shipping fees incurred by Lightstyle of Tampa Bay, as well as all return shipping and handling fees. Once we have received the returned item and inspected the item for damage, a refund will be issued.
We cannot accept returns of merchandise that has been installed, altered or damaged in any way.
To return a product, you must request a Returned Goods Authorization Number prior to returning the product. Products without a valid RGA number will not be accepted or refunded. A Return Goods Authorization may be requested by contacting us. Once we issue a RGA, we must receive the product within 15 days or no refunds will be given.
When returning an item, please be sure to pack the product properly. Please write the Return Goods Authorization number provided to you on a blank piece of paper, and tape it to the package. Use all original packaging materials, original box and all parts and accessories must be included. There should be no signs of installation, cut wires, alteration or missing parts. We recommend that you purchase shipping insurance, and obtain tracking information. We cannot provide a refund for any product received in our warehouse in damaged condition. In such a case, you must file a claim with the shipping company and advise us as what to do with the damaged product. We will hold your product for 20 days, after which the product will be destroyed.
We must receive the returned item within 15 days of the date the Return Goods Authorization was issued.
You may have the option to return your products to our showroom location. Please call for more information regarding in-store returns.
