Original Shipping is non-refundable, and Return Shipping is the customer's responsibility, except in the event the item is damaged or mis-shipped. All PSG Program returns require a RGA (Returned Goods Authorization) number, which can be obtained by calling (877) 423-2311, or emailing info@TheDeckStore.net.
PSG Return Policy
There are times when you may order an item and then find out it wasn’t exactly what you wanted. We get that some items don’t look the way you thought they would, so we've tried to make returning them simple. The Product Satisfaction Guarantee return policy applies only to items with the Product Satisfaction Guarantee label on the item page. PSG Program items can be returned with a RGA number:
- Within 90 days of purchase – Product qualifies for a full refund or equal exchange.
- Between 91-179 days of purchase – Product qualifies for store credit.
- 180 days after purchase – We are unable to accept returns or issue credits.
Refund, Return, and Replacement Policy
For all non-PSG items: You must contact customer service within 30 days of receiving the product to obtain an RGA (Returned Goods Authorization) number. After an RGA is issued, your RGA number is valid for 14 calendar days. Any product shipped back to us without a valid RGA number may be refused. Returned product(s) MUST be in its original packing and never installed. Once inspected and approved, a refund will be issued by the same means of purchase. Refunds are calculated by the total amount paid for the product on your original invoice minus original shipping on Free Ship Items. Once product has been inspected and deemed returnable you will be credited. A minimum of 10% or $5 whichever is greater applies to non-PSG returns.
If you are making an exchange, TheDeckStoreOnline.com in most cases will attempt to waive the restocking fee. The customer in this case may be responsible for the shipping charges if the product was a free ship item, that is the fee TheDeckStoreOnline.com incurred originally to ship this item(s) and pays to ship these items back to TheDeckStoreOnline.com. An RGA is still required and can be obtained by contacting a customer service representative.
