We look at used items on a case-by-case basis, though our standard policy is to only accept returns on used items if there is a defect (see 5th bullet point below). If requesting an exchange, we do cover USPS or ground shipping on the new item being sent to you (excluding international orders), but you are responsible for all return shipping to our store. Please allow 7-14 business days to process your exchange/refund. If an exchange is needed sooner, please contact Customer Service by email or phone at 877-788-9962 (8am-5pm MTN M-F) for alternate options.
