Our Thinking:

We want you to be happy with every single item you order from our site. If you aren’t happy, we want to make it right. We pick great products from manufacturers who stand behind their brand, so dealing with returns is something we are happy to help with. It’s why we offer free shipping for most returns and why we extend our return period significantly longer than most stores. The only thing we don’t like is when people try to take advantage of us. Be honest and fair with us and we will always be honest and fair with you.

Any original shipping charges will not be refunded.

If your return places your original order value under $49, we will deduct the $6.95 flat rate shipping from the amount refunded to you. The reason we do this is because some sneaky people (we know it's not you) will intentionally order an extra item they don’t need in order to get free shipping and then they will return the unused item hoping we don’t catch on. This hurts us and ultimately hurts you in terms of what we need to charge to cover our costs, which is why we include this in our policy
