How to Return Merchandise
Micro Center Online will gladly receive any merchandise you would like to return, provided it meets the guidelines in our Return Policy. You can return merchandise by shipping it to our Distribution Center, or by taking it to your local Micro Center Store.
If you are shipping the product back to us, contact Customer Service first.
Returns for orders being shipped back require an RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization) Number, which is valid for 10 days. To obtain an RMA Number, contact Customer Service. Product being returned at a retail store does not require RMA- just bring in your packing slip.
When you call, please provide the Customer Service Support Representative with:
- Order Number
- SKU Number of each product
- Name or Description of each product
- Nature of the problem
After the Customer Support Representative has taken the necessary information, he or she will process it and provide you with an RMA Number. No returns will be accepted without an RMA Number.
After you have obtained your RMA Number, follow the appropriate steps to return the merchandise.
Return to a Store
If you prefer, you may return items you ordered from Micro Center Online to your local Micro Center Store in person. To return the items, you will need to bring:
- The item and the original packaging. Include all contents
of the original package such as manuals, discs, cables,
etc. If all contents are not included, you will be charged
an Open Box fee on certain categories of products, as described
in the Return
- Credit or Debit Card used to purchase your order
- Complete packing list that came with your order
When returning an item to your local Micro Center Store, we reserve the right to decline a return if it is not in "like new" condition.
Take your items, credit / debit card, and the packing list to the Customer Support Department. Any of our Associates in Customer Support will be glad to process your return.
