Returning an Item

Online purchases cannot be returned to our stores. We apologize for any inconvenience.

2013 Holiday Return Policy

During the busy holiday shopping season, we're making things a little easier on you. Our normal 30-day return policy has been extended for all holiday purchases made between November 1 and December 31, 2013. If you are not satisfied with your gift purchase made during this time, simply return it by February 20, 2014 by following our Return Instructions. The item must be returned in good condition, in original boxes (whenever possible), and with all paperwork, parts and accessories to insure full credit. All items properly returned under this policy are eligible for a full refund of the purchase price, minus the shipping, handling, gift wrap, or other charges. Our Standard Return policies do not apply to all items. For a list of exceptions to our Standard Return policies and instructions on how to return these particular items please read our Return Exceptions policy.

The packing slip in your package will contain detailed return instructions for all returnable items. There are two return options for most items:

  1. Pre-paid Return Shipping (preferred method, available for most orders)
  2. Standard Return Shipping

1. Pre-Paid Return Shipping

For convenient return processing on most orders, your packing slip will include a pre-paid, pre-addressed label for your return package.

  1. Pack the item(s) securely in the original product packaging, if possible. Please include all paperwork, parts, and accessories. All products must be returned in good condition, to ensure full credit.
  2. Complete the return reason questionnaire on the packing slip. Remove the mailing label portion and include the remainder of the slip in the return package. Please do not tear the pre-paid mailing label down the middle perforation. The entire label must be used.
  3. Affix the pre-paid label to the package. Before sending your return shipment, please remove all extra labels from the outside of the package.
  4. Send your package via US Mail by giving it to your postal carrier or dropping it at a local post office or mail drop point.
  • No postage is required. The fixed shipping rate of $6.50 will be deducted from your refund. You will not be charged postage until the return is processed.
  • To receive credit, items must be returned within 30 days of delivery.
  • You can expect a refund in the same form of payment originally used for the purchase, within 30 days of our receiving the returned order.
