(Updated 2/17/19) The Bed Bath & Beyond return policy, while still mighty fine, has been restricted a little bit in recent years. Especially when you lose your receipt. So I thought it was time to break it all down for you. Here is exactly how the BB&B return policy works. Hope this helps and answers all your questions.
How Many Return Days With a Receipt?
You get 1 year from date of purchase to return items.
Yes, that’s right, the Bed Bath and Beyond return policy gives you 365 return days to return items.
It should be noted that this does require a receipt. Which leads us to our next question.
What If I Lost My Receipt?
If you lose your receipt, your return window is still 365 days.
Bed Bath & Beyond will use one of the following methods to try and find your purchase history:
- Credit card
- Debit card
- Store or merchandise credit number
- Gift card number
- Checking account number
If they CAN’T find any evidence of your purchase, they’ll let you complete an exchange (or get store credit) minus 20% of the current price.
If you prefer cash back, you’ll have to complete a “corporate refund request”, just tell the employee and they’ll help you out.
Do Items Have To Be In Original Packaging?
No, absolutely not.
Just bring the item back in, apparently in whatever condition, and they’ll refund 100% of your money if you still have your receipt.
Bed Bath & Beyond can do this because they have a strong relationship with their suppliers, many of whom will refurbish returned items and resell them at a discount.
Can I Return Items to Any Bed Bath and Beyond Location?
Yes, just bring back your items to any BB&B location and get your return processed.
Is Anything Non-Refundable?
Yes, there are a few items that cannot be return to BB&B. Here they are:
– Gift Cards: Completely non-refundable.
– Shipping, Delivery Charges: No refund on these, sorry.
– Assembly Charges: If you pay someone from Bed Bath and Beyond to build something, you can’t get your money back if you decide to return the item.
– Monogrammed, Personalized, Custom-Made Items: Non-refundable.
– Special Order Items: Non-refundable.
– Baby Clothing and Destination Maternity Items: These can only be returned with the original tags still attached and your receipt.
– Breast Pumps: Can only be returned unopened and with your receipt.
What About Returning Online Purchases?
When you order something from the Bed Bath & Beyond website you’ll find a FedEx return postage label included.
On the return label you’ll need to circle the item you’re returning, the reason why, and add your phone number.
Just pack up the items in the original package, include the bottom portion of your invoice, stick the FedEx label on it, and drop it off at a FedEx pickup location.
You’re done, go enjoy a cold pop.
What’s the Scoop on “Truck Delivery” Returns?
When getting a truck delivery from Bed Bath & Beyond I have some tips for success.
When the item(s) gets delivered, be sure to open the box and inspect the item for damage before the driver leaves.
If you see any damage, decline the delivery and write “Package Damage” on the delivery form. Then call BB&B at 1-844-4BBBHOME to report the damage.
If the damage is minimal, you can accept the return then call the above number and they’ll send out a replacement part or product.
Call within 48 hours for best results.
Can I Return a Mattress?
No, not exactly.
But if you’re having a tough time adjusting to your new mattress, they give you 120 days from delivery date to do a 1-Time mattress exchange.
After that you’re stuck with it, so choose wisely.
It should also noted that you’re on-the-hook for all shipping charges.
Call Bed Bath & Beyond at 1-844-4BBBHOME to schedule your mattress exchange.
