Target Diaper Return and Exchange Policy Explained

Short Answer: You can return diapers to Target — if the diaper package is unopened, you have 90 days from purchase to make a return or exchange, with or without a receipt. If the package of diapers has been opened, you can still return or exchange, as long as you have the receipt. For more on the Target diaper return policy, see below.

Target Diaper Return Policy

You can return or exchange unopened items — including diapers — with or without a receipt at Target stores within 90 days of purchase, according to Target’s general return policy. You can also return or exchange opened packages of diapers as long as you have the receipt, a Target customer service representative said. In some instances, returns and exchanges will be subject to a store manager’s approval. If you lost your receipt, you have two options:

  • If you made a purchase online and you have a Target account, you can look up your receipt at Target.com. You can return items purchased online at Target stores.
  • If you made an in-store purchase with a credit card, bring the credit card you used to the customer service desk and a Target store employee will look up your receipt.

There are also a few exceptions to the general return policy:

  • If you used your Target REDcard to buy diapers, you get an extra 30 days to return or exchange items — a total of 120 days after purchase.
  • If you purchased Up&Up brand diapers, you have one year to return or exchange them, since Up&Up is a Target-owned brand.

Target’s return hours are generally the same as its store hours. When you make a return, you will be refunded to your original form of payment.
