3. Ship your Return – alight recommends you track your return so that you may confirm that we have received it. The U.S. post office offers delivery confirmation for an additional fee. Also, we strongly suggest you insure your return. This protects you in case the shipment is damaged or lost in transit. Just take your package to a U.S. post office service window and a representative can add these options for you. If you elect to use another carrier to ship your return, we recommend you use a carrier such as UPS or FedEx that provides tracking information.

If a coupon was used with the order, the coupon may be voided on certain conditions. For example, if a coupon for $5.00 off of minimum purchase of $25.00 was used and the items kept do not total $25.00, then the coupon will be voided and the $5.00 deducted from the credit due.
