How Do I Return an Item to Amazon from Their Cyber Monday Sale?

This article discusses returning an Amazon item or items you bought during Amazon's Cyber Monday sale. A set of instructions for the return are given. The difference between buying something from Amazon and buying something from a third party seller through Amazon is discussed, as well as how the difference affects return policies.

Amazon holds a yearly Cyber Monday sale with discounts on many electronic items and accessories. If you purchased something at this sale and need to return it, keep on reading for a description of Amazon's return and refund policy and its return procedure.

Amazon's Return and Refund Policy

You must initiate the return within 30 days of receiving the item you purchased at the Cyber Monday sale.

Amazon will refund your money or give you an exchange after they receive the item you are returning. It might take up to 25 days for Amazon to receive and process the return. It will then require 2 more business days to process the refund and 3-5 business days for your account to be credited.

When you mail the item back to Amazon, you will need to pay the postage cost, but you will automatically get a refund of up to $20 for the cost after Amazon gets your package. If the postage cost you more than $20, contact Amazon's customer service department to request a refund of the rest. You will automatically receive a full refund of the postage, no matter what the price, if you are returning the item because it was defective or missing parts.

If you made the purchase from a third party seller, you cannot return the item to Amazon. You have to send it back to the seller, who has his or her own return policy.

Making the Return

  1. Go to Amazon's webpage.
  2. Click the Sign In link.
  3. Sign into your account.
  4. Go to Your Orders.
  5. Select the order that includes the item you are returning.
  6. Select Return or Replace Items.
  7. Select the item you are returning.
  8. Select the reason for the return from the menu.
  9. Select a return method.
  10. Print out the return label and the authorization that Amazon sends you.
  11. Put the item you are returning in a box.
  12. Attach the return label.
  13. Mail the box.

If you chose the label-free, box-free return method in step 9, skip steps 10-13. Instead, save the QR code they send you and make note of the return location they specify. Bring the item (no need for putting it in a box) and the QR code to the location that Amazon specified.

If you have questions about the return, you can contact Amazon's customer service department. It has phone, email and chat options.
