    Default One time courtesy

    Hello

    What does one time courtesy mean?

    For example: We do offer a one time courtesy refund

    Thanks

    They are breaking their rule or custom and giving you a refund "this time" - but don't expect them to do it again.

    jlinger is correct.

    It's not 'one time courtesy' but 'one time refund as a courtesy' or 'one time courtesy-refund' in sense.
