Do I need to return the packaging and everything that came with the product?

This includes promotional gifts, gift cards or shopping cards provided with the purchase.

What is considered a bulk/volume purchase? Is it returnable?

A bulk/volume purchase is defined as a single order of ten (10) units or more of the same item within a 24-hour period; multiple orders of ten (10) units or more of the same item within a 24-hour period; orders of two or more units that exceed $10,000; or five-hundred (500) orders within a rolling twelve (12) month period. Bulk/volume purchases cannot be returned, except in the case of manufacturer defects or damage. Submit all damages with photos here within 72 hours after delivery for online purchases. Sam’s Club members who request online orders to ship to a third-party facility or to a freight forwarder are responsible for auditing and ensuring their orders arrive complete and free of damage.

What if my order is not delivered?

Packages may be returned to us as undeliverable

When a package isn’t delivered by our carrier, we’ll issue a full refund to your original payment method. We’ll also send a corresponding email to confirm the return and your refund details.

Reasons your package may not be delivered:

  • Wrong or outdated address. Make sure the address you’ve entered is accurate. To add, edit or delete addresses, go to Address book
  • Our system doesn’t recognize the address entered, or our carrier can’t deliver to that address
  • The package was damaged during transit. If this happens, the carrier may choose to return it to us without attempting delivery
  • The address was illegible. Address labels can occasionally be damaged or smeared. In those cases, the package is returned to us
  • The carrier attempted delivery but failed. Our carrier will make multiple attempts, but if all should fail the package is returned to us

We’re unable to re-ship items that our carrier deems undeliverable and returns to us. To purchase an item that wasn’t delivered, you’ll need to place a new order.

If you haven’t received word about an order being returned nor received a refund a month after the estimated delivery date, contact us
