Wayfair return policy

Wayfair's return policy clearly states that a customer can return a package within 30 days of receiving it if it does not meet your standards. However, the package needs to be returned in its original condition and packaging for it to be accepted.

There are a few items whose return Wayfair will not accept. These items include clearance items, gift cards, personalized items, bundled products sold at discount rates, items that have already been assembled and goods marked 'non-returnable' on the sale page.

You can return a bundle of discounted items if they are in their entirety. You can also return damaged and defective products to Wayfair.


Wayfair does have special return policies for some items and special purchases such as:


All mattresses from Wayfair have a 100 day free trial period. If you still do not like the mattress after 100 days, then you can return it for a refund or a replacement. You can only return one mattress per order.

Large Appliances

Wayfair return policy on large appliances is that you can return them within 30 days if the appliance has not been installed and provided it is returned in its original packaging and condition. Some sellers will require you to pay them a restocking fee but this rarely happens.

In order to return a large appliance to Wayfair successfully, you should do the following as soon as it arrives:

  1. Scrutinize the packaging for signs of damage
  2. Confirm that the product's name and model number match the item in your order
  3. Remove the packaging and thoroughly inspect the appliance for any defects

Don't accept the delivery if you find any of the three issues above.

Wedding registry policy

Items on a wedding registry can be returned to Wayfair at no cost in exchange for store credit as long as they are returned within 90 days of the wedding. To initiate a wedding registry return on Wayfair, call a Registry Specialist with the product details, order number and reason for the return.
