Return Policy

Items must be returned within 90 days in original condition to receive a refund or exchange. Original condition means the item is not washed, worn (aside from trying it on), damaged or altered and returned with all hangtags and original packaging where possible. Any item not meeting the timeframe or condition of this policy will be returned at the customer’s expense.

How to Make an Exchange, Replacement or Return

Process your items online within 90 days to create Instant Store Credit.

  • When you follow our online process, a credit will be instantly placed and stored on your Sierra Trading Post account for 60 days. The credit can be used instantly to order an exchange or replacement item, even before the return merchandise has been received (must be received within 10 days). Since items tend to sell out quickly; we recommend immediately placing an order for replacement items. After 60 days, any unused credit will refund to the original method of payment.

    Use the return label provided during the online process or in the original box to ship the return item back to Sierra Trading Post. The return item must be received by Sierra Trading Post within 10 days or a charge will incur for any amount of the credit applied to a new order. Online exchange and replacement orders receive discounted $2.95 return shipping and $2.95 shipping on the next order using the Instant Store Credit.*

    *$2.95 shipping through Instant Store Credit is valid only for addresses within the contiguous 48 United States only. Excludes AK, HI, all U.S. territories, possessions and all international orders. Orders placed within the last 90 days are eligible for Instant Store Credit (Exchanges and Returns FAQs*).

  • You may choose to take a refund during the online process. Print your return label then select the “Process My Refund” option on the final page of the process. The item must be received by Sierra Trading Post within 10 days or a charge will incur for any amount of the credit applied to a new order.

    If the item is received and meets our return policy timeframe and condition guidelines, the refund will reconcile to the original method of payment. A $6.95 ($10.95 AK.HI) shipping fee will apply to returns for refund. This fee covers return shipping from you to us. Original shipping cost will not be refunded unless there was a Sierra Trading Post error.

  • If you prefer a Traditional Exchange, Replacement, or Return simply print and fill out this form and use the prepaid UPS return shipping label included within your package. If you choose not to use our prepaid label, you will be responsible for paying all return shipping costs up front.

    We will process your return or exchange after it arrives. Requests for item exchange using the traditional method will be subject to availability.

    A $6.95 ($10.95 AK.HI) shipping fee will apply to returns for refund. For exchanges and replacements, a $2.95 shipping fee will apply on the return and $2.95 will apply to the new order.
