The general terms of the Dollar Tree return policy are:
- Returns and refunds—Dollar Tree considers all in-store sales final, which means you can’t replace your products or get a refund
- Exchanges—You can exchange your products for others of the same value if you bring the receipt and the unopened item. If you discover that a product is faulty only after opening the package, Dollar Tree will let you pick an article with the same price. In that case, you should still keep the original packaging because of the barcode
- Time limit—The company has no specified time limit for returns and exchanges. As long as you have the receipt, you’re good to go
Unlike its sister company—Family Dollar—Dollar Tree doesn’t offer many options if you end up with a damaged or faulty product. To put things into perspective, Family Dollar gives its customers 30 days to return such items.
Dollar Tree doesn’t offer a more merciful return policy for online orders. If you received a faulty item, you should contact customer support. You can do that by dialing 1-877-530-TREE (8733).
Customer support will offer to replace your product or give you store credit to use in the future, but you can kiss your money goodbye as they still won’t refund your item or the shipping fees.
If you bought seasonal merchandise at Dollar Tree, unfortunately, you are stuck with it. The company will not allow you to return or exchange the products.
You can’t redeem Dollar Tree coupons or gift cards for cash. You also won’t get cash back even if, for example, the price of an item is $0.5 and the value of your coupon is $0.6.
Dollar Tree doesn’t offer gift card cash back except where the law requires the company to do so, which is unfortunate because you can’t reload Dollar Tree gift cards after you spend the entire balance.
