Satisfaction Guaranteed — Our Policies
We want you to be completely happy with your purchase or gift from The Passionate Collector® and stand behind our products. If you are not satisfied, please let us know how we can help.
We will cheerfully exchange or return any full-priced item within 30 days as long as it is in the original unworn, resalable condition and accompanied by the receipt.
If you weren't happy with the item you purchased and want to try another (with the exception of sale items), absolutely no problem. Make sure we have your contact information, just in case we need to reach you. We will be happy to ship your exchanged item to you (by ground) free of charge. A tracking confirmation will be sent to you.
Just want to return it? We will process your full-priced return promptly, although it may take 1-2 billing cycles for your refund to appear on your credit card. We will email you upon the receipt and processing of your return. Returns apply to online purchases only.
The only exception to our Exchanges/Returns policy regards Sale Merchandise. Sale Merchandise is not exchangeable or returnable because of the deep discounts on these pieces.
Gift Exchange Policy
Gifts (with the exception of sale items) may be exchanged for credit in the amount of the item or for other merchandise. If the merchandise you are requesting exceeds the original item price, your credit card will be charged for any balance due. When you choose your new item, we will be happy to ship it to you free of charge. Please note that gift items cannot be credited back to any credit card other than that of the original purchaser.
