The Ins and Outs of the L.L.Bean Return Policy

If you want to return an L.L.Bean purchase but you’ve never made a return to that company—or at least not after the L.L.Bean return policy change—this guide is for you. Here, you can find up-to-date information about the L.L.Bean return policy, learn how to submit a return request, and get your money back in a flash!

The General L.L.Bean Return Policy

L.L.Beans allows you to return items within one year of purchase for a refund. After that time, any returns will undergo quality control and will be eligible for a refund only if the products are defective or poorly crafted.

All L.L.Bean returns require proof of purchase. In most cases, the company has a sales record that employees can use to look for their transactions when they request a return. You should still keep your receipt or order confirmation just in case, though.

Circumstances Under Which L.L.Bean Won’t Accept Your Return

L.L.Bean’s return policy is generous, but the company won’t accept your return if your product is damaged by:

  • Misuse
  • Accident
  • Negligence
  • Natural disaster

Other reasons L.L.Bean might not consider your return and issue a refund are as follows:

  • The products are entirely functional, but you want to exchange them or get rid of them for personal reasons
  • You lost your items
  • The products are soiled or contaminated—you need to clean and decontaminate them before requesting a return
  • You’re trying to return ammunition in store or by mail
  • The products require an import license
  • You’re returning items with restricted import
  • Item labels are either unclear or missing
  • You abused the L.L.Bean return policy in the past
