Eligible Reasons (Detailed)

Invalid Phone: An "invalid phone" is a number that is disconnected, leads to a fax line, or is not in a valid format. Examples include numbers that result in a "no longer in service" message, or connect to fax tones.
Invalid Email: An "invalid email" is an address that bounces back as non-existent or returns an error indicating it is unserviceable. Examples include emails that return a "recipient address does not exist" error or indicate the address cannot be reached.

Duplicate Lead (30 Days): Refundable if the same lead for the same product is received within 30 days. Same leads requesting different products are not refundable.

Ineligible Product: Refundable if the product type doesn't match the criteria (e.g., receiving a renters insurance lead instead of home insurance lead).

Ineligible Geography: If a lead is received and does not match geographical filters. For example, agent is eligible to receive home insurance leads in Florida and receives home insurance lead in California.

Obviously Fake: If lead received is clearly fake ("Mickey Mouse", "asdf asdf", etc.)

Test Lead: It's against our Terms to submit test leads through our quoting funnel, however in the case a lead is confirmed to be a test lead, the lead is eligible for refund. Supporting details are required to approve test lead refunds.

Ineligible Criteria (Custom Filters): In some cases, agents may select additional lead filters. If a lead does not match the criteria of these custom filters, it is eligible for return. Lead criteria are based on the information available at the time of delivery.
