You can return or exchange almost everything within 15 days for a full refund. Simply bring your item(s) to us with all contents and packaging, proof of purchase and ID, and we will process your return or exchange.
If you are not already a member, please consider joining our My Best Buy program. It is easy and free. You will not only enjoy points from your Best Buy® purchases, but as your points add up, you can reach Elite and Elite Plus status, and receive an extended return and exchange period of 30 or 45 days, respectively, instead of 15 days, on most purchases.
You can return or exchange mobile phones and other carrier connectable devices within 14 days for a full refund. This return period also applies if you are a My Best Buy Elite or Elite Plus member.
Opened computer software, movies, music or video games can only be exchanged for an identical item.

There are two ways to return your phone or device and cancel your service:

If you no longer have the gift card used for an order, please call us at 1-888-BESTBUY (1-888-237-8289), with your order number handy, and we'll be happy to send you a replacement.
