Holiday Return Policy
Any orders placed after Thanksgiving qualify for our holiday return policy, which is 14 days (as usual) or January 15th, whichever comes later. Damaged items need to be reported within 14 days for claims purposes. After the 14 days, we will still issue an RMA for the damaged product (until January 15th) but you will be responsible for the return shipping.
We primarily use Federal Express Ground to ship all of our orders.
We cannot ship to PO Boxes or APO addresses. We ship to physical addresses only.

Shipping Costs & Availability
- Shipping cost is based on what you order and determined both by size and weight.
- The shipping price listed on the product page is the base shipping price for the item. If an item has more than one size the shipping price will increase depending on the size you order. This increase will be displayed in the shopping cart.
- The shipping cost will be displayed for you before you finalize your order and before you give credit card information.
- Heavy or oversize items may be subject to a Freight Surcharge in addition to the regular delivery charges.
- Most in-stock items are shipped within 24 hours and should arrive within 3-5 business days (these estimates apply to in-stock items shipping within the Continental US).
- Shipping transit time can vary depending on location and shipping option.
We want you to be completely satisfied with your purchase, but we understand that sometimes things need to be returned. We will be happy to credit, exchange or refund the purchase price of your item, less any shipping or handling costs.
- Please contact us within 14 days of receipt of your item to arrange a Return Authorization Number (RMA).
- Returns without an RMA number or items not in the original packaging will not be processed, or will be assessed an additional fee at our discretion.
- Shipping costs are non-refundable unless the return is a result of a manufacturing defect or our shipping error.
- We reserve the right to refuse returns or exchanges of items that are not in new condition due to damage or misuse by the customer.
- Items must be returned within 30 days of the issuance of the RMA number, and must be received in the original packaging.
- Upon receiving your RMA, you may return the product, at your cost, using your preferred shipping method. Alternatively a pickup can be scheduled with our shipping company for a fee that will be deducted from your refund. Refunds will be issued in the same method as the original payment.
- Refunds generally appear on your credit card statement in one to two billing periods.
- Please do not request a chargeback with your credit card company while waiting for a refund. This will only make the process longer and more complicated. If you have any concerns, please contact us first for resolution.
- For health and safety reasons, bedding, towels, pillows and related items are not returnable. Please review the color, design and dimensions carefully on the product page before placing your order.
We will accept a cancellation for full refund if the order has not shipped yet. If the order has been shipped, the standard return policy will apply. Deliveries refused for any reason other than damage will be charged the appropriate return shipping fees.
