In order to make becoming a new parent just a little easier, Amazon offers a Baby Registry service in which families can choose the items they need for their little ones and either make the purchases themselves when they want or send the registry list to loved ones, so they get what they actually need.
As convenient as this service is, it’s still possible to end up with too many of one thing, so let’s find out what the Amazon Baby Registry return policy is!
Amazon’s Baby Registry return policy states that if the registry’s owner made the purchase, they have 90 days from the shipment date to return it for a full refund. If the item was gifted, the receiver has 365 days from the shipment date to return it for a full refund.
In this article, we will discuss absolutely everything you need to know about Amazon’s Baby Registry return policy, including how to return something, if the sender knows the item was returned, and so much more.
Amazon’s Baby Registry option is a great way to organize what you need to prepare for your baby’s arrival. You can add onesies, diapers, a crib, a stroller, and so much more on one convenient page.
You can then make purchases yourself as needed or share the page with loved ones so they can confidently get what you actually want and hopefully ensure you don’t get multiples of the same item.
However, life doesn’t always go according to plan, and you may need to return something that either you or a sender purchased from your Amazon Baby Registry. Luckily, you can absolutely return something from the registry, no matter who bought it, and receive a full refund from Amazon!
The Amazon Baby Registry return policy states that any item purchased by the owner of the registry can return the item within 90 days of the original shipment date for a full refund, and items purchased by another sender can be returned up to one year after the shipment date, also for a full refund!
Will the Giver Know About Amazon Registry Returns?
Of course, you may want to return an item from your Amazon Baby registry for a number of reasons, but you probably don’t want the giver to know you didn’t want or need their gift.
Well, there’s good news! The giver will never know if you return one of your Amazon Baby Registry gifts! Unless, of course, they ask to see your baby in their gift, but there’s really nothing Amazon can do about that.
The price paid does not have to be returned to the original payment method; in fact, when you initiate a return for an item sent to you by a friend or family member from your baby registry on Amazon, you can receive the full refund on an Amazon gift card that will be available on your account to purchase anything else you might want.
Now that you know that you can certainly return an Amazon Baby Registry gift and that the giver never has to know, you might be curious about how to return the gift.
Here are Amazon’s instructions on how to return a baby registry gift:
- Log in to your Amazon account.
- Navigate to the Accounts & Lists menu on the right corner of the screen.
- Click on your Baby Registry Page.
- Select the Thank You Lists and Returns.
- Choose the item you wish to return.
- Follow the prompts to choose how you want to return the item.
That’s all there is to it! If you purchased the item yourself, you could opt to have the refund sent back to the original payment method, or if it was paid for by a giver, the refund would be added to an Amazon gift card which will be available for you to use on Amazon.
Once you have followed the above steps to initiate a refund for an item from your Amazon Baby Registry, you probably want to know how long you’ll have to wait to receive the funds.
Amazon states that you should expect the money to be returned to your original payment method or be ready to be used on an Amazon gift card within three to five business days.
If, for some reason, you have not received your refund within a week, there could be a problem with your return. You will need to reach out to the Amazon support team in order to ensure it is actually on the way.
If you opt to return an item from your Amazon Baby Registry, you will be sent a shipping label from Amazon free of charge. You just need to attach it to your package and have it ready for the delivery person who is coming to pick it up.
Once it’s on the way, you can track your Amazon registry return by following these instructions:
- Log in to your Amazon account.
- Click on the Accounts & Lists menu on the top right corner of the page.
- Select Your Orders.
- Click the View Return/Refund Status menu.
- Your registry return will be listed below, including where it currently is.
Usually, Amazon won’t release the refund until they receive the item and it’s checked for damages in the warehouse. If this process takes longer than expected, it may take more than a few days to get your money refunded, but at least by tracking the item, you’ll understand the delay.
Amazon has an entire page dedicated to its Baby Registry customer service center.
If you have questions about how the Baby Registry works, how to initiate a return or anything else you might need to know, you can find the answer right on that page!
The Amazon Baby Registry return policy states any gift ordered from your registry by a sender can be returned within one year of the shipment date for a full refund. Items purchased by the registry owner can be returned within 90 days of the shipment date for a full refund.
