General Returns Policy

You may return new, unopened items sold and fulfilled by within 30 days of delivery for a full refund. Items should be returned in their original product packaging. We'll also pay the return shipping costs if the return is a result of our error. Just visit our online Returns Center, and we will guide you through the process and even supply you with a return mailing label you can print out.

You should expect to receive your refund within four weeks of giving your package to the return shipper, however, in many cases you will receive a refund more quickly. This time period includes the transit time for us to receive your return from the shipper (5 to 10 business days), the time it takes us to process your return once we receive it (3 to 5 business days), and the time it takes your bank to process our refund request (5 to 10 business days). We'll notify you via e-mail of your refund once we've received and processed the returned item.

Items Purchased from Other Sellers

As the Web site offers items for sale both by and by registered third-party sellers, it is important in the returns process to know from whom the item was purchased.

  • Visit Your Account and view the order. Click on the order number and the seller is listed at the top of your order information.

If the item to be returned was not sold by, you will need to contact the seller directly or follow the specific Amazon Merchant's return instructions found in the order summary of Your Account.

For more about third-party seller return policies and additional instructions, visit the following pages:

Subsidiaries subsidiaries operating on third-party platforms, such as Warehouse Deals, may have different policies. Merchant policies are accessible before ordering, wherever product details are made available.

Large Items Shipped By Specialty Carriers

We are happy to accept returns for large items that are shipped via our specialty shippers. These items do require a special type of return and cannot be returned with a pre-paid return mailing label like standard shipments. If you need to return an item shipped via a specialty shipper, you visit our online Returns Center and request the return. We will follow up with instructions for returning the item. Note: Returns that are not the result of our error will be subject to a return shipping fee which will be deducted from the refund.

In-Store Returns

Items purchased from cannot be returned to a physical store (such as Borders, Target, or Office Depot stores). Items purchased from Amazon Merchants such as Eddie Bauer or Macy's are subject to the individual merchant's return policy; please click the related link in the order summary in Your Account for more information.

Using our Return Mailing Label

The return mailing labels obtained from our online Returns Center are valid only for returns shipped within the U.S.

Each return mailing label is coded for a specific shipment. Please do not include items from other orders, or other shipments from the same order, in the same box, or you will not receive the correct refund. Each shipment must be returned using a separate mailing label.

If you use this mailing label and the return is a result of our error (you received an incorrect or defective item, etc.), we'll pay the return shipping costs.

If you use this mailing label and your return is not the result of our error, the shipping cost of that returned item will be deducted from your refund. The amount deducted will be equivalent to our standard shipping cost for that item.
