Fred Meyer Return Policy

Rewards makes returns even easier!

It’s a snap to make a return if you showed your Rewards Card when you made the original purchase:

Just present the same Rewards Card along with the item you’re returning.

That’s all we need to look up your purchase and credit back or refund the exact amount you paid if the purchase was made within the last 90 days.

Your refund will be based on your original form of payment:

  • Credit card purchases will be credited back to the same card
  • Debit card purchases will be refunded in cash
  • Personal check purchases will be refunded in cash. If your personal check purchase was made within the last 10 days, additional verification will be required

Didn’t use a Rewards Card? Just bring your receipt to our Customer Service Desk. Most merchandise can be returned within 90 days of the purchase date. See below for exceptions.

If you don’t have a receipt and you didn’t show your Rewards Card when you made the original purchase:

We will try to find your original transaction in our database based on your form of payment.

If we can’t find your original transaction:

  • You will be required to show identification. A state-issued driver’s license or identification card is preferred
  • Your returned item will be refunded at its lowest price within the last 90 days
  • All returns over $5 without a receipt will be credited to a Fred Meyer Merchandise Return Card
  • A Customer’s first return without a receipt will be accepted to a maximum dollar amount of $50.
  • If the Customer presents another return request without a sales receipt, it will be declined.
