Crate and Barrel’s return policy is very strict.
However, Crate and Barrel will try to work with you on proof of purchase. Even if you don’t have a receipt, they will take almost any proof of purchase, or try and look it up for you.
Crate and Barrel’s exchange policy is the same as their return policy.
- For non-furniture items, you have 90 days to exchange an item and must provide proof of purchase unless you want to exchange for the same item.

Crate and Barrel require some proof of purchase for a return. If you only want an exchange for the exact same item, you may not need a receipt. However, to exchange for a different item or to get a return, some proof of purchase is required.
Almost anything can be used as proof of purchase:
- Original receipt
- Gift receipt
- Original packing slip
- Gift packing slip
- Order number
- Gift registry number
- Email address used to receive the e-receipt
- Crate and Barrel Credit Card

If the item was a non-furniture item, it can be returned for up to 90 days.
For furniture, rugs, and basic freight items, they must be returned within 30 days, and only after making a call to return the item within the first 7 days.
Gift cards, customized items, and botanical items all cannot be returned to Crate and Barrel. Cut yardage is also a final sale and cannot be returned.
Items that were floor samples, or items that were worn, washed, or not in good condition are not eligible for returns. Also, any items purchased during a final sale are unable to be returned.
For credit cards, the amount can take 1-3 days to hit your credit card after the item has been successfully returned to Crate and Barrel. For cash, you will receive the first $100 immediately. For the check, they will send it by mail, which can take roughly up to a week, depending on the speed of the post office.
Does Crate and Barrel Give Full Refunds?
Crate and Barrel does not give any refunds for shipping or delivery fees. They will pay you back the full cost of the item you purchased.
Can I Return a Crate and Barrel Product After Use?
If non-furniture items have been worn or washed, they are not eligible for returns. The Crate and Barrel website doesn’t state anything about furniture, we would assume that as long as they are still in great condition, they can be returned.
How long is the Crate & Barrel return window?
Customers have 30 days to return to their store.
Crate and Barrel’s return policy is relatively straightforward. Larger items like furniture and rugs cannot be returned online, and instead only sent into the store.
For these large items, you must also call customer service within the first 7 days after delivery and return within the first 30 days to get a full refund.
For other items, you have 90 days to return the item for a full refund.
