Returns & Exchanges
What's your refund policy?
Please choose carefully, as we do not refund if you change your mind or if you made a mistake when ordering from the website.
For products purchased in our retail stores we are happy to exchange products within 7 days of purchase, providing the goods are in resaleable condition and you have proof of purchase.
For products purchased from our website we are happy to exchange your goods within 28 days with proof of purchase, providing the goods are in re-saleable condition.
If you exchange a product that was purchased on special for a different product, you will have to pay the full retail price, not the special price if the promotion has ended.
If the product returned is faulty, we will meet our obligation to provide a remedy under the “Consumer Guarantees Act”.
When a customer is purchasing a gift, a Whitcoulls Gift Exchange receipt can be provided. This is valid for 2 months from the date of purchase. If you don’t wish to exchange a returned item, we will refund the original purchase price excluding freight charges, onto a Whitcoulls Gift Card.
If the product being returned is faulty, and the Consumer Guarantee Act applies, Whitcoulls will meet our obligation to provide a remedy under The Consumer Guarantees Act.
DVDs, electronic games & eReaders cannot be returned unless faulty or defective.
