5. Smith membership terms and conditions
Membership can be obtained by signing up online, by booking through Smith, entering a competition, making a purchase from the gift shop, or by registering the card that comes with every Smith guidebook purchased.
Smith members are eligible for several types of offers. Smith extras are additional gifts or services provided by the hotel for anyone booking that hotel through the Mr & Mrs Smith website or Smith24 team. Hotel offers, such as free nights, reduced rates, or other special deals are available for limited periods and may be booked online or through the Smith24 team ([email protected]; 0330 100 3180 or +44 20 8987 4312). Please note that the Smith extra may not be available in conjunction with hotel offers – see the individual offer for details. Shopping offers are subject to the terms and conditions of the offer provider – see individual offers for details. Smith members may receive hotel vouchers during promotional periods; the use of these is restricted to one voucher per member and one voucher per booking. All offers are subject to availability.
Any hotel participating in an offer to Smith members must agree to honour the offer (subject to availability).
Smith members receive a monthly newsletter, Room Service, which includes updated offers and competitions. Your email address is not sold to or shared with third parties for marketing purposes but we may invite other companies to participate in our newsletter. If you wish to unsubscribe, you can do so here.

Alteration of service or amendments to the conditions
We reserve the right to make changes to our website, policies, and these conditions of purchase at any time. You will be subject to the policies and conditions of conditions of purchase in force at the time that you order goods from us, unless any change to those policies or these conditions is required to be made by law or government authority (in which case it will apply to orders previously placed by you). If any of these conditions is deemed invalid, void, or for any reason unenforceable, that condition will be deemed severable and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining condition.
Events beyond our reasonable control
We will not be held responsible for any delay or failure to comply with our obligations under these conditions if the delay or failure arises from any cause which is beyond our reasonable control. This condition does not affect your statutory rights.
6. Gift card/e-voucher/loyalty money terms and conditions
All non-promotional vouchers/gift cards are purchased at their full face value in order to be valid.
Mr & Mrs Smith reserves the right to refuse redemption of vouchers if they believe that the vouchers have been obtained by fraudulent means.
Vouchers/gift cards/loyalty money
From 23 February 2015, BlackSmith members will no longer earn loyalty money on bookings. Existing loyalty money held by BlackSmith members will remain valid for 24 month from completion of the qualifying stay. Vouchers/gift cards/loyalty money are redeemable for stays at hotels in the Mr & Mrs Smith collection when booking via the Mr & Mrs Smith website or the Smith24 team. Vouchers/gift cards/loyalty money are not redeemable directly with hotels or in any way with hotels that are not part of the Smith collection.
Loyalty money is given on all hotel stays booked by SilverSmiths or GoldSmiths through mrandmrssmith.com or through our Smith24 team. Loyalty money is not given on any bookings made directly with hotels.
The amount earned is based on membership status at the conclusion of the stay.
When a hotel stay has been part-paid using loyalty money, further rewards will only be accrued on the portion that has been paid for in cash or by debit/credit card.
Hotel stays paid in whole or part with a gift card/e-voucher or loyalty money must be pre-paid in their entirety at the point of booking (except when the value of the gift card/e-voucher or loyalty money is less than the deposit amount). Though we understand that this can sometimes be a slight inconvenience, this is the best way of ensuring there is no confusion over payment when you check out at the end of your stay.
Vouchers/gift cards can be used multiple times until the value associated with the unique gift card code reaches zero or the gift card money expires.
Vouchers/gift cards are valid for 12 months after purchase. Loyalty money is valid for 24 months from completion of the qualifying stay after which it will automatically expire. Bookings must be made within this time, but stays can be taken outside of the validity period.
Vouchers/gift cards/loyalty money are redeemable only against accommodation costs. They may not be redeemed against incidental hotel costs or additional services.
Any outstanding unused credit will be held against the unique gift card/e-voucher code until used or the gift card/e-voucher/loyalty money expires.
Where a refund is applicable for cancelled bookings, the amount paid with vouchers/loyalty money will be refunded by the same method.
Vouchers/gift cards/loyalty money cannot be exchanged for cash.
Mr & Mrs Smith reserves the right to decline to accept vouchers/gift cards where, in its opinion, a gift card/e-voucher is invalid for the booking being made.
Lost or misplaced vouchers/gift cards may be replaced subject to submission of proof of purchase, and the purchaser’s confirmation of the voucher’s/gift card’s intended recipient.

5. A Smith voucher will be created for any unused amount in your gift list once hotel accommodation has been paid. This will be valid for one year (see voucher terms and conditions above)
