Smart Betty offers great daily deals on tasty things to eat, new places to visit, great gifts to give and exciting things to do in your area. We are able to offer these terrific discounts because we provide participating businesses the promotional tools to maximize the response to their Daily Deals. Smart Betty will also donate 10% of our revenue on every purchase that is done through our site to the charity, non-profit or organization you choose when you register. Smart Betty’s corporate offices are located in Mississauga, Ontario but our franchisees work in local communities throughout Canada and the United States to offer these great local deals.

Does there need to be a minimum number of vouchers sold for the Smart Daily Deal to become active?
No, there is no minimum number of purchases required for you to take advantage of the Smart Daily Deal.
I'm trying to place my order and it's asking for a CVD number - what is that?
Most credit cards now include a 3 or 4 digit verification number, which is not part of the regular credit card number. CVD (Card Verification Digits) seeks to ensure that the purchaser has the physical card in hand when placing a phone, mail, or Internet order, and to verify that the card account is legitimate. The number is not contained in the magnetic strip information nor does it appear on the sales receipt, which is what makes it a good security feature. The CVD number can be found on the back of Visa and Mastercard credit cards to the right of the magnetic strip.
How do I use the Smart Betty Voucher I have purchased?
Once your account has been charged, you will receive two e-mails from Smart Betty - one with a payment confirmation, the other with your voucher for your deal. Full instructions on how to redeem the Smart Betty Deal will be on the voucher. You can also access the voucher and this information by going to My Coupons or My Orders under your Profile page.
Will I be charged sales tax or any additional fees when I use my Smart Daily Deal?
Most jurisdictions have differing tax laws, so it all depends on where you use your Smart Betty Deal as to whether you are charged sales tax. ANY additional costs to the deal will be indicated on the deal write-up, so please read it over carefully!

My order was placed last week and the site still says 'Ready for Shipping'! When can I expect to receive it?
The status update in your Smart Betty account is independent of the status of your shipment with the supplier. If the merchant provides us with a tracking number, we get that information to you and change the status of your item to 'Shipped'. If the merchant doesn't get that information to us, then the status remains as is, even though it may have been shipped to you already. Please review the voucher details for your deal in order to get an idea of the time needed for delivery.
I have a question about the deal - what can I do?
E-mail us with as much information as possible at email@example.com or call us at 1-905-364-1374. We'd be happy to help!
What if the business I purchased the Smart Daily Deal from goes out of business?
If anything happens to the business you purchased the Smart Daily Deal from before you can redeem it, we guarantee that your money will be refunded.
I won't be able to use my voucher, can I get a refund?
The Smart Betty refund policy can be found in Section 11 in the Conditions of Use and is also summarized on each voucher. As each deal is different, the conditions for a refund can vary as well. Provided that your voucher has NOT been redeemed and it’s been 30 days since you’ve made your purchase, you may request a refund by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org with more information.
