Return a Gift

The Online Returns Center allows gift recipients to return items marked as a gift at the time of purchase. The type of refund or credit you receive depends on how the gift was purchased and how it's returned. Gift recipients won't be eligible for exchanges or instant refunds.

Need to return a gift?

To return a gift:

  1. Go to the Online Returns Center.

    Select Return a gift and sign-in with your Amazon account.

  2. Enter the gift order number and select Search.

    Your 17-digit order number (or "Order ID") is on the left side of your packing slip. If you don't have the packing slip, contact us.

    Note: To help us locate the order, provide us with ordering information like the tracking number, name of sender, shipping address, email address or phone number. This information can usually be found on the shipping box.

    Note: If the item was not marked as a gift at the time of purchase, you'll be prompted to contact Customer Service.

  3. Select the items you want to return from the order.

    For items sold by a third-party seller, you'll see "Submit return request." Some Amazon sellers review return requests before authorizing them.

  4. Select how you want to send your item back.

    Select your return shipping options and how you'll obtain your return label. Each return label is assigned to a specific return. Go to About Return Shipping for more information.

  5. Put the return authorization inside your package and attach the label to the outside of it.
    If your gift return is authorized, Amazon or the Seller will process your refund as an Gift Card after your return is received. We'll add the Gift Card to the account you used to generate your return from the Online Returns Center. Once the refund processes, we'll send you a confirmation e-mail. If you're the gift giver, your refund will be processed to the original payment method. All refunds are subject to our refund policies outlined in About Refunds.

    Note: A-to-z claims for gifts purchased from a third-party seller must be filed by the original purchaser, not the gift returner. If you need to file a claim for a gift return, please contact the original purchaser. Go to About A-to-z Guarantee for more information.
