Returns & Exchanges
We love to sort out returns, exchanges and resolve any quality issues ASAP!
365 Day Returns
We understand life with babies and children is busy, and sometimes you just don't get around to returning something quickly. Or you might find something tucked away that you never actually used!! You're most welcome to return an item for refund within 90 days from purchase. Please note your refund will be returned to the original payment method. Alternatively items can be returned up to a year from purchase and receive a store credit or exchange. Returned items must be unwashed, unused and unworn items, in perfect condition including the packaging. Please ensure you carefully package items so they are received back in perfect, saleable condition.
- Please Note:
- You will receive a store credit for sale items which have since been discontinued from our range.
- Shipping is not refundable on returns.
- Sorry we can't accept change of mind returns where the item has been used.
- We do not accept refunds on change of mind electrical items. We will give a store credit for electrical items purchased within 30 days.
- Any bath or health products are not able to be returned.
- Please note the customs limit for New Zealand is NZ$400. Please see below if you are returning an item with a value over NZ$400, as fees apply to returns in this situation.
Download our Returns Form
Simply download our returns form below, fill it in and package it with your items and original receipt so we can process your refund for you. Don't have a printer or can't find your packing slip? Don't stress, just send as much info as you can.
Alternatively we can organise a Parcel Point link so you can post within Australia rather than back to us in New Zealand. The approx. cost is $10 per parcel. You can drop off your parcel at any parcel point. With 1400 locations around Australia , there should be a parcel point in your neighbourhood, close to home or work. However, please note that this process can take up to approx. 3-4 weeks as packages first ship to the Parcel Point depot, are then consolidated and shipped monthly back to New Zealand.
You will need to email email@example.com for a returns link.
How to Exchange
If you would like to exchange an item – please place a new order for the item you would like. Please note in the Delivery Instructions box as you checkout your new order that this is an Exchange. Whichever option below you choose, please include your details with your return! Preferably include your original packing slip. See link below to download our returns form to complete. Refunds are subject to our 365 day returns policy above.
Option 1: Pay for the new order and return the other item for a refund.
We will then ship the new item out to you immediately and as a bonus for selecting the easy option – we’ll include a Parcel Point label for you to use to send the item back to us for a refund. Please note it can take 3-4 weeks for a return to get back to us in New Zealand using this process.
Important: You must note that it is an Exchange in the Delivery Instructions box for us to know to send you the return label otherwise you will be responsible for the return shipping cost.
Option 2: Return the item first and we will manually process the exchange.
If you do not wish to pay for new order – please select “Customer Service – Extra Payment” option at checkout as the Payment Option. You do not need to pay for anything at this point and please don’t redeem any store credit. Placing your order this way will ensure that the product is held for exchange. On your returns slip please note your new order number and our returns team will be in touch when we receive it.
You'll be responsible for the cost of shipping in both directions for your manual exchange. However customers can usually cover the cost of their return shipping from their SleepPoints balance - just let us know on a note with your return if you want to spend SleepPoints rather than pay for your shipping.

More Returns Info
How we can help you with your return?
Returns over $400 are liable for all NZ customs charges
All packages with a declared value of NZ$400 or over are likely to be stopped by New Zealand customs. Please note that if you return something to The Sleep Store with a declared value over NZ$400, you are liable for ALL customs and clearance charged to release your return from customs. Please note New Zealand Post's minimum clearance charge is NZ$80 plus an applicable tax and duty charges. The Sleep Store will deduct all customs charges including the $80 clearance charge from any returns which are stopped by New Zealand Customs. In addition you will be charged a $20 admin fee if you require us to arrange for the customs clearance of your package. While we will endeavour to assist you to customs clear returns sent to The Sleep Store, we do not take responsibility for ensuring this occurs given you have chosen to export a package to New Zealand. If you post a package back to The Sleep Store, it is your responsibility to ensure it gets to us and it is your responsibility to cover all costs associated with returning the package to us, including the minimum $80 customs charge, the $20 admin charge and any other related costs.
Discontinued or Sale Items
Sale or discontinued lines can still be returned for a store credit under our 365 day returns policy.
Miracle Blanket Returns
100% money back guarantee if you're unhappy/dissatisfied with the product – Within 30 days of your purchase
Faulty or Damaged Items
Very occasionally a product may develop a manufacturers fault or arrive damaged. We will do everything we can to resolve this situation to your satisfaction, and often give you options to ensure you get the best outcome for you.
We will happily meet our obligations under the New Zealand Consumer Guarantees Act if our products have been wrongly described, develop a fault or are not fit for the purpose described. Please email with details of the fault including a photo if possible. See link below to download our returns form to complete.
Please note our 365 day returns policy DOES NOT apply to electrical items.
Change of mind electrical items can be returned for a STORE CREDIT ONLY and must be returned within 30 days.
Before returning a battery operated item which you consider faulty, we require that you have tested your item with a brand new set of high quality batteries, such as energizer or duracell. The majority of 'faults' are due to the use or poor quality batteries, such as using a mix of old and new batteries, using rechargeable batteries or cheap chain store or $2 shop batteries.
See link below to download our returns form to complete.
SleepPoints Reward Program
If an item is returned, any SleepPoints earned on that item at time of purchase will be debited from the purchaser's points account. If a person returns an item and their current points balance is less than the points earned on the item returned, then the points balance will be returned to zero, and the dollar value of the points shortfall will be deducted from the refund or credit given for the returned item.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about your purchase, either by email or phone (09) 8168706.
