Amazon's return policy in 15 seconds or less...

  • Returns must be made within 30 days of the receipt of shipment.
  • Return shipping isn’t free unless you’re returning because of an Amazon error.
  • Exchanges and replacements are available for some items.

Time Restrictions

In most cases, you can return items shipped from Amazon.com within 30 days of receipt of shipment. Some products have different policies.

Cost of Shipping

Amazon offers prepaid return shipping methods, but unless you’re returning your item due to an Amazon error the cost of return shipping will be deducted from your refund unless your item qualifies for free returns. If you’re making the return because of Amazon’s error, you will receive a refund for return shipping costs up to a maximum amount. Items that need to be shipped by a specialty carrier will cost you a $50 flat fee to return.

Refund Options

Amazon refunds are either issued back in your original payment method or as an instant refund if you don’t want to wait for your return to be fully processed. With the instant refund option, you’ll still need to return your items within 30 days.
