Our Pricing Policy
Our prices are all in Australian dollars (AUD) and include GST (Goods and Services Tax). Subscriptions will be indexed in line with the CPI (Consumer Price Index) or can be subject to increases at our discretion at any time. If our prices are updated, we will inform you within two business days.
You agree that your membership fees will be deducted by us from your nominated credit or debit account as provided by you and authorise us to debit your membership fees for the duration of your membership term in accordance with the payment schedule advised by us. By providing us with your credit or debit account details, you warrant that you are the authorised cardholder or have the consent of the authorised cardholder.
Auto Rebilling of Membership subscription
We utilise recurring memberships on all packages for your convenience. Your membership will automatically roll over for a further term and be billed to your credit card after your initial membership period has expired unless you cancel yourself, or advise us not charge you at least 1 day prior to the expiry of your membership term. If you fail to do so, we are not liable for any refunds associated with the automatic renewal of any of your subscriptions.
We allow members to pause services for bona fide reasons, e.g. if they are going on holiday or wish to take a break. You can pause your services for a minimum of 7 days, and for a maximum of 28 days per year. After that time the services can be automatically resumed, or if the expiry date has passed, the services can be terminated without credit.
Anyone found abusing the pausing system can be charged immediately for unpaid portions of their membership.
Note that if a service needs to be paused due to the suspension or postponement of competition, or due to the analyst taking a break for whatever reason, then we will of course permit pausing for as long as it takes until the service resumes.
If you change your mind or make a wrong selection, we will not normally provide a refund, so please choose your package carefully.
If an analyst for a particular service changes, but the service continues with a new analyst, this in no way entitles you to have any portion of your membership payment refunded or otherwise changed. Memberships are not transferable in any manner regardless of performance, personnel or change of mind. The membership you buy is the membership you get. However we do consider providing credit to use towards another service if a membe wishes to immediately terminate a service.
We will not provide a refund due to the suspension or postponement of a service due to the suspension of postponement of competition, or due to the analyst taking a break for whatever reason. We will simply pause the service until the service resumes (which means you will not be charged during the period the service is paused, and your subscription expiry date will be extended by the period of time the service is paused). However we may provide you with a credit in the system if you would prefer to immediately terminate the existing service and use the credits towards switching to another service of your choice.
If a service is permanently cancelled, you will be offered the opportunity to transfer to any other service of your choice for the remaining period of your membership, or to receive credits for the pro rata unused period, that you can use at any time in the future. You will not however be entitled to a refund. We are always generous in our offers in these circumstances, always offering more value than the pro rata refund calculation.
You are not entitled to a refund for any unused portion of your membership should you decide to cancel. However you can request a credit to be used at a future date. Chargebacks are not permitted. To cancel your membership, please contact us or do so in the Subscriptions section of the Member Login area. Nothing in these terms restricts the rights which you may have under the Consumer Guarantees in the Australian Consumer Law.
The following policy applies for events out of our control, such as:
- cyber warfare, cyber attacks, ransomware attacks or cyber-sabotage;
- war, hostilities (whether war is declared or not), invasions, acts of foreign enemies, civil war, sabotage or piracy;
- rebellion, terrorism, revolution, insurrection, military or usurped power, riots, civil
- commotion or disorder;
- operation of the forces of nature such as earthquakes, hurricanes, lightning, typhoons or volcanic activity;
- work stoppages
- outbreaks of disease, epidemics, pandemics or quarantine; and
- acts of government authority, whether lawful or unlawful.
If a Force Majeure event impacts on a sporting competition and the season is postponed but officially completed at a later date within the same year (with less rounds), refunds are not applicable, and no time extension will be provided to the relevant sporting service, unless Winning Edge Investments decides otherwise at its discretion.
If a Force Majeure event impacts on a sporting competition and the season is not able to be completed, refunds are not applicable but a time extension on your end subscription date will be provided to cover for the amount of time or number of rounds that were missed (whichever is most applicable at Winning Edge Investments' discretion).
If a Force Majeure event impacts on horse racing, refunds are not applicable but the service and memberships will be paused until it can resume (hence no time will be lost and your membership will be extended by the period of time the service had to be paused).
Refer a Friend Program
Winning Edge Investments reserves the right to amend, change, review or cancel any member’s account should that member be deemed to have abused or obtained an unfair financial benefit from the Refer a Friend Program.
Loyalty Bonus Credits
Loyalty Bonus Credits can only be used to purchase existing or new subscriptions, and cannot be claimed, redeemed or paid out as cash.
We may amend the earning rates of Loyalty Bonus Credits at any time, and may suspend or revoke the earning and redeeming of Loyalty Bonus Credits at any time.
Profit Guarantee Refund
The purpose of our Profit Guarantee is to prove that we absolutely have ‘skin in the game’ with you. The vast majority of tips and/or ratings services do not offer any sort of compensation if you lose following their selections. We offer one so that during a period of variance, you can continue receiving the service without the added cost of a membership payment.
All Winning Edge Investments services come with our Ongoing Exclusive Profit Guarantee Refund for all Quarterly and Yearly Memberships. We’re so confident in each package, if you don't profit over the period of your subscription based on official results, we will refund your next payment in full! Simply send us an e-mail after your payment is made to request the immediate full refund.
Note this profit guarantee is very generous. If a service makes a 100-unit profit in the first quarter, and then makes a 1-unit loss in the next quarter, you still get your next quarter for free! Our Profit Guarantee applies to all Quarterly or Annual memberships.
If the service does not show a profit based on our official results during the period of your subscription, then we will refund the payment you make for your next period's subscription. It is not a refund of that current period's subscription. If you cancel or do not make your recurring payment on or before your subscription recurring date, you are not entitled to the Profit Guarantee Refund.
The Profit Guarantee Refund is for genuine, bona fide ongoing members only. Hence we cannot advise of Profit Guarantee eligibility ahead of the next membership payment, but you can easily check this yourself using the results spreadsheets. Profit Guarantee Refund requests must come after being billed (not before). If the request comes longer than 72 hours after being billed, the refund will be provided as a credit instead. If the request comes before the payment has been made, it will be ignored.
If a service changes substantially from one period to the next, or the analyst changes for the same type of service, then the profit guarantee does not automatically apply. However we will assess on a case by case basis and may offer service credits.
If a service is completely cancelled by you or us, and you are transferred to a new service of your choice, the previous profit guarantee no longer applies.
If you extend your service period through the use of loyalty bonus credits, the profit guarantee applies only to the original period of the subscription. As the membership period provided through loyalty bonus credits is delivered at no cost, it stands to reason that the profit guarantee does not apply for this period. This is also to avoid people 'gaming' the system by increasing their expiry date through the use of loyalty credits in order to attempt to gain an additional profit guarantee period.
Profit Guarantees do not apply to free trial periods.
Our decision in relation to the profit guarantee refund is final and no correspondence will be entered into.
At certain times during the year, analysts may choose to take a small period of 'annual leave', usually 1-2 weeks, to refresh or perform analysis. Consider it a small spell or let up. Leave is a standard acceptable request and does not grant an automatic extension of your membership. Due to the administrative burden of extending every member's membership by a leave period, Winning Edge Investments reserves the right to offer a generous opportunity of a free or low cost (e.g. $1 or less) trial of another service of your choice for a longer period than the leave break in order to ensure you continue receiving high quality tips during the break period, or to replace the leave period with a selection of other services. We trust you will find these offers generous and more than equitable for the lost service period.
Free Trials / Competitions
Profit Guarantees do not apply to free trial periods.
Free Trials are to be used for a new service of which the winner is not currently a member, and cannot be transferred to another service.
Free Trials auto recur at the ongoing monthly rate once the free trial has completed, however you can cancel beforehand at any time, there is no lock in commitment.
Winners of multiple free trials /competitions must have had an equivalent period of paid services to the number of free trials they have won, or else they are no longer eligible for further free trials / competition wins.
Free Monthly trials are to a maximum value of $287. Free Quarterly trials are to a maximum value of $787. Free Annual trials are to a maximum value of $2870.
Social Media Competitions
We regularly run social media competitions (on Twitter, Facebook & Instagram) to win a free service for a certain period.
These free periods are set up as free trials, so they auto recur at the monthly rate once the free trial has completed, however you can cancel beforehand at any time, there is no lock in commitment.
Winning Edge Investments reserves the right to exclude certain services from being an option for a free period.
Our Responsible Gambling Policy
Winning Edge Investments maintains and projects a strong commitment to provide all our members with quality betting Information, methods and practices.
For non-professionals, gambling should be enjoyed as a recreational activity to which genuine profits may be obtained. However, gambling may also cause a problem for some members in some circumstances.
Winning Edge Investments may at its discretion prevent access to our products and services and our site if we believe any member is displaying behaviour, sending correspondence or giving indications that could be viewed as:
- Indicative of being compulsive.
- Providing us with reason to suspect that the person may have a gambling problem.
- Betting to excessive or unsustainable levels.
- Engaging in practices that could be viewed as being irresponsible gambling, or lacking discipline.
If a third party connected to a member contacts us and gives us similar reason to stop, cease or put a membership on hold, Winning Edge Investments may at its discretion comply with that request.
Winning Edge Investments encourages responsible gambling. Winning Edge Investments wants members to be in control of their gambling at all times and not allow member’s gambling to control them. Please ensure that when implementing Winning Edge Investment's tips, you do so in a controlled manner with the key principle to only gamble what you can afford to lose. If you have a problem and need help then contact G-Line free call 1800 858 858.

Member's Code of Conduct
You accept and understand that our interests are aligned with yours. Unlike most questionable tipping organisations, we do not make money from bookmaker affiliates based on your losing bets. Your memberships are guaranteed via our profit guarantee, and your betting banks are protected by our conservative staking. You receive detailed, quality, unbiased education to improve your punting, and our achievable odds are recorded fairly based on our members approved odds recording methodology that aligns your interests with ours. In return, we expect your support and positive interaction whether that be directly with us or our analysts via e-mail, in our member chat rooms, or through any other public or private mediums including social media. You will treat all analysts and other members with the utmost respect.
Our analysts are professional and profitable, but are also human. Negative comments and feedback (which can often come from uneducated sources), has the ability to negatively impact the mindset and results of our analysts. Hence we promote and expect positivity in all interactions from members with us and our team, and you can expect the same in return. Any member not aligning with these principles risks having their membership terminated without refund for breaching this agreement. We absolutely welcome all feedback, questions, concerns and constructive criticism, but respectfully ask that you contact us via e-mail and we commit to responding promptly and comprehensively to address your queries. Member feedback helps us to improve our services and we also conduct annual surveys to gather feedback and always implement improvements on the back of this. However criticism or queries through any medium that we deem as unfair, unwarranted or deliberately malicious will result in Winning Edge Investments taking whatever action it deems fit, including but not limited to removal of loyalty bonus credit entitlements or immediate termination of your membership for life without refund. Neither having a bad run, nor a losing day, nor any other reason will not be considered acceptable excuses. Our decision will be final, and we will immediately treat such negative public comments as confirmation that you no longer wish to be a member of our exclusive club or any of its services for life.
