Reason for return (please check one):
Thank you for your business! If you have any questions, please contact our customer service
center by email and please be sure to include your order number.
Books or audiovisual media must be returned in their original condition; items ordered as "new"
must be returned with no markings or other damage. Any software media that may be included in
the book must also be intact. Movies and games may not be returned once the shrink-wrap or
packaging seal is broken, unless the product is found to be defective.
The shipping fee paid by the customer at the time of purchase will be refunded only if the return
is due to our error (i.e., we sent you damaged items or the wrong items).
We will notify you via email of your refund once we have received and processed the returned
item. Your refund will be in the same form of payment originally used for purchase. This process
usually takes about 10-14 business days.
Items that are returned more than
days after order confirmation will be subject
to an additional restocking fee at the discretion of Akademos.
* Certain items are sold as non-returnable items for a variety of reasons. We are unable to
offer refunds on such items. You will be made aware of the non-returnable status of such an item
at the time of purchase.
For rented books being returned at the end of the rental period
By the last day of your rental period, you must either extend your rental or mail your rental book back.
To mail the book back:
Log in and go to your Purchases page, then click on the Rental Control Panel link for your rental book you want to return. Here you will find option to print both shipping label and packaging slip.
Print your FREE shipping label and packing slip.
Put all of your rental books and the packing slip in one box, tape the box shut and then tape
the shipping label onto the outside of the box. If you rented more than one book, you can still
put all of the books in one box, just include all of the packing slips in the box too.
Drop off the box at any UPS shipping location by the last day of your rental period and THAT'S IT!
