How do I track the status of my return?

If you have returned a product to us, the 'returns’ section of the relevant ‘order history’ page in your account will show you the status. These are some of the statuses you may see:

  • 'Refund actioned' - This shows you that your refund has been completed. Please allow up to 14 days for the credit to appear in your account. If you request a replacement and we have no stock, we'll give you a refund. You will receive an email to confirm this
  • 'Replacement actioned' - This shows you that your replacement order has been created. You'll receive an email to confirm this. We'll also send you another email when we despatch it
  • 'Cancelled' - If you see this status you should have been contacted by Boots Customer Care to explain why we aren't able to process the return
What is your returns policy?

You can return any unwanted products free of charge within 35 days for a refund or replacement. Unfortunately we aren't able to exchange products. Any Boots Advantage Card points collected against any product(s) you return for a refund will be removed in accordance with the Advantage Card terms and conditions. When returning health and fitness equipment, please disassemble it prior to collection to assist our couriers.
