Please know that along with this benefit comes a responsibility to act in good faith. Companies will revoke pro deals from individuals and organizations that abuse them, rightfully so. We are confident that our Members are people of strong character and integrity, and we're trusting that you will use these pro deals according to the companies' policies. In order to safe-guard this benefit for our Members, we will be alerted to suspected abuse, and may terminate any pro deal account at any time. Abuse of pro deal privileges (including buying things for other people) will reflect poorly on you as a member, and may result in suspension of your Mountaineers membership.
