V. 30 Day Money Back Guarantee™
14. We stand behind our products. We will offer a 30 Day Money Back Guarantee to provide a refund for any single division of the Ultimate Whole Enchilada ($189.00 or less) within thirty (30) days of purchase if you are not satisfied with our product.
15. In order to receive the refund, all files must be verifiably deleted and all exam simulator accounts will be terminated. Your IP address may be recorded. If your IP address is used after the refund, you will be billed for all products in use.
16. Our 30 Day Money Back Guarantee is only applicable to a single division study package (max. $189.00). The guarantee does not apply towards the purchase of the ALL 6 Divisions Ultimate Whole Enchilada, our PLATINUM Program, or any of our coaching. There is NO REFUND offered on these products.
17. You must contact us by email within thirty (30) days from the date of purchase. Older requests will not be honored or considered.
18. The purpose of the 30 Day Money Back Guarantee is to allow you to try and test our products without worry. The 30 Day Money Back Guarantee is not designed for use if you failed your exam and are upset about it, nor is it a guarantee that you will pass.
19. LIMIT ONE SINGLE DIVISION REFUND PER CUSTOMER. Maximum refund amount is $189.00 for any single customer based on purchase price. The 30 Day Money Back Guarantee can only be used once.
VI. The 8 Month Challenge™
20. We want you to finish. We offer a challenge to encourage candidates to use our study packages to finish their ARE quickly. If you take and pass all 6 of your exams within 8 months from the date of purchase, you are eligible to receive a full refund on your purchase price of our BUY ALL 6 Divisions Ultimate Whole Enchilada Package (up to $949.00 based on your purchase price). Unfortunately, we’ve had some unscrupulous types try (and fail) to receive a refund they didn’t deserve, so we’ve had to set some fair rules.
21. In order to qualify for the refund, you must present unaltered copies of your NCARB score reports for review and evidence. Candidates testing outside of this 8-month deadline window will be rejected and your refund will not be processed. Candidates unable to provide their score reports will be rejected and your refund will not be processed.
22. In order to qualify for the refund, you must also record and provide a video testimonial for us to use to promote our study packages. The video testimonial must be usable (following our format guidelines, proper lighting, proper sound, and emphatically encouraging the use of our study products to pass the ARE.) Unusable testimonials will be rejected and your refund will not be processed. Your video must be submitted within 30 days of passing your last exam. Failure to submit an approved video within 30 days forfeits the challenge and your ability to receive a refund. We don’t care if you’re “shy” or an “introvert”, you need to submit a video.
We reserve the right and have sole authority to reject any video testimonial that is deemed not usable by Architect Exam Prep LLC. In the event a video testimonial is rejected, the candidate will have one opportunity to resubmit a new video. Architect Exam Prep LLC reserves the sole right to determine if the video is prepared according to our guidelines and usable on our website.
23. If approved, you will only be refunded the amount you paid (up to a maximum of $949.00). If you upgraded to the ALL 6 Package from a single exam package, the timer starts at your first purchase, not at the date of the upgrade.
VII. The Platinum Pass Guarantee™
24. We know candidates need an incentive to stick with any program in order to finish. We offer a guarantee for those purchasing a one (1) year subscription to our Platinum Package. If you participate in our program, we will guarantee that you’ll pass all six exams or will provide you with another six (6) months of access for free (no cost to you!).
25. Candidates must participate in six (6) consecutive coaching groups for that entire year and take each of the 6 ARE exams within the 2-week window we outline in the coaching study plan (typically the last two weeks of that two month period.) Candidates must also take at least two (2) exam retakes as directed and needed within that one year period. (We will advise you on this retake timing as part of our regular coaching.) Candidates that are not participating in coaching calls, not participating on our Slack workspace, not following our study plans, really are disqualifying themselves from this Pass Guarantee. (Remember, if you commit to us, we commit to you!)
26. This offer is invalid if: the candidate doesn’t follow this testing plan; doesn’t take each of the six exams of the Architect Registration Exam (ARE5.0); doesn’t participate in all 6 bi-monthly groups of the coaching; doesn’t schedule their exams within the recommended testing windows; or doesn’t complete their exam (no walk-outs, no-shows, or cancellations allowed.) You have to actually do the work!
