Wayfair Rug Return Policy: Time Limit, Return Shipping Explained

According to Wayfair’s return policy, you have 30 days from the date of delivery to return a rug for a refund or store credit. However, you will be responsible for the return shipping costs and must return the rug in its original packaging and condition. Here’s what else you need to know about returning a rug to Wayfair.

Wayfair Rug Return Policy Explained

According to three different Wayfair customer service representatives, Wayfair rugs fall under the store’s standard return policy. This means that you have 30 days from the date of delivery to return your rug and receive a refund or store credit (you decide which one you want).

There are two exceptions to this rule:

  • The rug can’t be returned if it is a clearance item (unless it arrives damaged or defective)
  • The rug can’t be marked “Non-Returnable” on the sale page

If you’d like to return a rug to Wayfair, you’ll need to log into your Wayfair account or contact Wayfair customer service and tell them you want to return your purchase. Then, the Wayfair service team will send you a shipping label that you can print and tape to your return box.

Keep in mind that you’ll need to return the rug in its original condition and packaging. If you’ve damaged the rug in any way, you will not be able to return it. “Original packaging” simply means that you need to put the rug back in the packaging as best as you can. It does not mean that you can’t return the rug if the packaging has been ripped or damaged while removing the rug.

Once Wayfair accepts the returned item, you will receive store credit or a refund issued to your original method of payment, minus return shipping costs. Return shipping costs can vary greatly depending on the size of the rug and your shipping location. Find more information on Wayfair’s return shipping costs in our article.

The Wayfair rug return policy is straightforward. You have 30 days from the date of delivery to return a rug, and you’ll receive a refund or store credit, minus shipping costs. However, the rug usually can’t be returned if it’s a clearance item or it’s marked as Non-Returnable.
