If the items returned bring the remaining total below the minimum purchase level of the offer, then the discounted amount will be deducted from the refund amount. For example, a 10% discount (with a minimum purchase amount of USD 100) will be removed if the returned product(s) brings the total order value below USD 100. In case of a promotion with staggered prices, always the lowest amount will be refunded.
