Return Policy

As our guarantee states "Every item we sell will give you complete satisfaction or you may return it for a full refund" You can follow one of our three simple ways to return.

Free Exchanges

By Mail

Complete the exchange portion on the back of the Order Summary form and include it with your returned item. We will send the new item out to you and we will pay for the shipping.

By Phone

To receive your exchange item even faster, simply place your new order at 1-800-426-8020. We will charge you for the purchase price of your exchange and will waive shipping. Once your return is received we will credit you for the cost of the original item.
