What Is Amazon's Return Policy?

Everything You Need to Know About Amazon's Return Policy

If there's one thing you can rely on in this world, it's Amazon. Groceries, ebooks, last-minute necessities (thank you, Prime), it's got you. And when your purchases don't quite work out, most of them are refundable through Amazon's standard 30-day policy. See exactly what you can and can't return below.

Refundable Items

  • Amazon devices: Items including Kindle ereaders, Fire tablets, Amazon Echo devices, and Amazon-branded accessories purchased from Amazon.com can be returned within 30 days of the delivery date. They must be in new condition.
