Our online Returns Center will guide you through the process--you can even print out a mailing label so you won't have to wait in line at the post office. Just leave the package for your mail carrier to pick up, and we'll notify you via e-mail when we've processed your refund.
You'll be pleased to know we'll accept returns of items purchased between November 15, 2001, and December 31, 2001, until January 31, 2002.Returns Policy

Amazon.com can exchange items only if they are defective or damaged. To exchange an item, visit our online Returns Center.Refunds
We'll notify you via e-mail of your refund once we've received and processed the returned item. You can expect a refund in the same form of payment originally used for purchase within 7 to 14 business days of our receiving your return. If your return is not due to our error, we will deduct the shipping costs from your refund.Returning a gift?
If the item was marked as a gift when purchased, you'll receive a gift certificate for the value of your return, which can be used at any time toward your purchases at Amazon.com. The gift certificate will be mailed to you at the same address to which the order was shipped. (Don't worry--we won't let the gift giver know about your return.)
If the item wasn't marked as a gift when purchased, we will send a refund to the gift giver, and he or she will find out about your return. To determine whether your item was marked as a gift, check the packing slip that came with your gift shipment. If it shows prices, your item wasn't marked as a gift.Did you use a promotional code or certificate?
If you paid for all or part of an item you want to return with a promotional coupon or code, that part of your refund will be credited to your account, available to use the next time you place an order at Amazon.com. Please note, however, that promotional credit may be refunded and reused only if the promotion has not yet expired.Packing and Sending Your Return
Just a few simple steps:
Please note that return mailing labels obtained from our online Returns Center are valid for domestic returns only. In addition, if you use a mailing label provided by our Returns Center and your return is not the result of our error, the shipping cost of that returned item will be deducted from your refund.Lost Your Packing Slip?
Don't worry! If you ordered the item yourself, you can still return it via our online Returns Center. What if the item was given to you as a gift, and you don't have the packing slip or the order number? No problem. Enclose a separate sheet of paper noting the name and e-mail address of the person who purchased the gift, along with the reason for your return, and send the package to the appropriate address below:
