Returns, Warranty and Related Policies


Returns Policy

You may return most new, unopened items within 30 days of delivery for a full refund. We'll also pay the return shipping costs if the return is a result of our error (you received an incorrect or defective item, etc.).

You should expect to receive your refund within one week of giving your package to the return shipper, however, in many cases you will receive a refund more quickly. This time period includes the transit time for us to receive your return from the shipper (5 to 10 business days), the time it takes us to process your return once we receive it (3 to 5 business days), and the time it takes your bank to process our refund request (5 to 10 business days).

If you need to return an item, simply login to your account, view the order using the "Complete Orders" link under the My Account menu and click the Return Item(s) button. We'll notify you via e-mail of your refund once we've received and processed the returned item.

  • RMA# is required for all returns:  See "return procedures" below.  RMA = "Return Merchandise Authorization"

  1. Please re-package the items in the original packaging.

Upon receipt at our Arizona office:  Our shipping/receiving person logs all incoming RMA packages in our RMA database:  You will receive an email acknowledgement when the return-package is logged into our RMA database.  Shortly after this we will either replace the item or refund, based upon the RMA request and circumstances.
