Return Shipping

Return Shipping Costs

You'll be charged a single flat fee for each return shipment, plus a smaller fee for each item in that shipment. In each return shipment, the item with the highest per-shipment cost determines the per-shipment fee; per-item charges are applied according to the products you're returning.

If you can't be home when the pickup occurs, please leave the package in a secure location where the UPS driver will have access to it.

After the first pickup attempt, call UPS at 1-800-PICK-UPS (1-800-742-5877) and try to cancel future pickup attempts. Be sure to have your tracking number handy if you do call them.
