QFC (“we,” “us,” “our”) wants you to be fully satisfied with every purchase you make from our website, mobile app or stores. This Return Policy describes how you can exchange or obtain a refund if you are unsatisfied with your purchase.

Please review this policy before making purchases to understand exclusions and requirements. Contact us at or (800) 555-1234 for assistance.

Returns Overview

Most non-perishable items in new condition and still in original packaging can be returned within 90 days of purchase for a full refund if you have the original or gift receipt.

Some products have more restrictive policies due to health regulations or customization – see category details below for limitations.

If you followed all guidelines when returning your item and met eligibility criteria for a return, refund will equal amount paid initially including taxes and shipping costs. We will process returns within 10 business days from receiving it back.

You may exchange your item for something else, or request refund applied to original payment method. Gift card refunds apply back to card used for buying.

Please note returns received that do not meet policy criteria can be sent back to you without processing refund or exchange if issues cannot be resolved.

General Requirements

To be eligible for return, items must meet the following criteria:

Do not write on, mark, sticker, or damage item packaging to keep new condition intact. Carefully repack items with assembly components secured during transport. Follow category guidelines below for safe transport of breakables like glassware or screens.

Upon receiving your return, our warehouse inspects condition and confirms order records to verify policy compliance. If paperwork is missing or product returned used/damaged/incomplete, we cannot process refund but will recycle item responsibly.

Time Limit

You have 90 days from ORIGINAL purchase date to return most items. Some goods have more restrictive limits – see categories below for specifics.

Returns outside the eligible window, without receipt/order verification, or not meeting other policy criteria will be denied refund or exchange. We can try to locate order in our systems from your name, credit card, address etc but cannot guarantee recovering data beyond 90 days.

Sale items or price adjustments cannot be refunded for more than amount paid. The 90 day limit also applies to gifts – please retain gift receipts for easy returns.

Return Shipping

Customers cover return shipping costs for online orders delivered to your home or work. Free convenient options:

If using your own shipping method, insure package appropriately in case of further damage or loss – we are not liable for return transit mishaps out of our control. Send returns ONLY to our central returns facility address:

Returns Dept.
456 Return Way
Seattle, WA 98104

Include all parts/accessories, original packaging, receipts/invoices, and contact/order info inside box. Use sturdy outer box with sufficient padding to avoid breakage. Seal securely.

Returns delivered to other locations may fail to reach our facility. This can cause refund denial if we never receive the item back from you. Please use approved channels above to prevent issues.

In-store purchases must be returned to a QFC store location. Bring items, receipt and accessories to Customer Service desk within 90 days along with payment used. This facilitates immediate refund or exchange.

Refund Method

Once we receive and inspect the complete return, refunds will be issued within 10 business days – usually much sooner:

For online returns, expect refund back to the same card, account or gift card used when ordering initially.

Contact support if you need payments directed somewhere else. We aim to make returns and refunds easy for your convenience. Please reach out if any questions.

This covers the major product categories and respective return policy nuances to be aware of when considering an item return. Of course customers should ALWAYS feel empowered to exchange any goods received scratched, defective or differently than displayed at time of purchase – just follow category rules above and general policy to process successfully.

Please reach out to our Customer Service team with ANY issues or questions regarding returns. We want you completely satisfied with your QFC shopping experience.

Lost Receipts or Gifts

No need to worry if you lost your receipt or ordering paperwork. For online purchases, we can look up previous orders placed under your account or tied to method of payment. Just have ID matching details used.

Returns under $100 process without receipts – just bring government photo ID matching our existing name/address records so we can manually locate order internally. Keep gift receipts attached to presents if recipient may need to exchange something.

If we cannot find original order internally, refund amount depends on item category limits below based on selling price:

Of course having the receipt speeds processing since it confirms details instantly. But don’t stress if you misplaced papers – we make every effort to find your transactions in our systems and take care of return needs!
