Special Offers & Promotions

If you choose to return part of an order, you may no longer qualify for all special offers associated with your purchase. For example, if you received a free gift with purchase you may be required to return the gift in order to receive full credit for your return.

ShopRunner Returns

If your order was placed using a ShopRunner account, your member benefits include free return shipping via UPS. Once you confirm that your return meets the eligibility requirements above, you can complete your return using a ShopRunner return label. Please note that you must use ShopRunner’s UPS return label to guarantee free return shipping. Using a different shipping method may delay processing of your return, and may result in shipping or processing fees being deducted from the value of your return.

Return Shipping and Processing

If you still have it, the box your order arrived in should be sufficient to make sure that your return arrives back at our distribution centre undamaged. Padded envelopes are not an effective way to protect your return shipment, as items may be crushed during transit. Please pack your return shipment securely to ensure that the items are not damaged in transit.

We will provide free return shipping if your return is the result of our error (damaged, defective, or incorrect item, etc.) and for our 100% color guaranteed products. In other cases, a return postage fee of $4.99 will apply. A 10% re-stocking fee will be applied on all returns over $200 that are not the result of our error.

Items that require special handling or scheduled delivery are sent directly from our suppliers, not from our main distribution centers. If you choose to return an item that was sent with special handling, you need to contact us to request return authorization and a shipping label to have the item returned to the correct location. Returning your items to the wrong location may greatly delay the processing of your return and credit.

For order shipped from our distribution centers, please print a return shipping label. This return shipping label is for the United States Postal Service (USPS) only and cannot be used with other shipping carriers.

Once we receive your return, we will issue a credit or refund within 30 days and send you an e-mail confirmation. Please bear in mind that it can take several days for the transaction to appear on your account, depending on your financial institution.
