Writing your order number on the outside of the package helps us quickly identify your return.

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM YOUR APPLICABLE REFUND:

Original shipping charges you paid are non-refundable.

New items in original packaging are returnable for full refund of item's price within 30 days of original ship date.

Lightly used and/or out of wrapper bats returned within 14 days will be subject to a 15% restocking fee that will be deducted from your refund. Used or out of wrapper bats returned after 14 days will not be accepted. Demo bats, used wood bats, used fielding gloves/mitts, used bags/backpacks, used helmets, used catcher's gear, and used accessories are not returnable.

Broken, cracked, dented, heavily used, abused and/or incomplete items will not be accepted and no refund will be provided

Missing bat warranty stickers, holograms, serial number stickers - Your return will be declined or subject to a restocking fee if the sticker or hologram that came affixed to your bat is not returned, which is required for bat warranty purposes.

Defective or broken bats - These items must go back to the manufacturer for replacement if there is an applicable warranty. If your item does not have a warranty, then no replacement will be provided. If you do return your broken bat to us we will just request for you to send us a label to ship the item back to you. Each manufacturer has their own bat warranty process that they handle directly with you, which is industry standard. When you do contact the manufacturer to start your warranty claim process, please have your order information ready as they'll need that as your proof of purchase.  If you need a copy of your order confirmation, feel free to email us at sales@cheapbats.com and we will happily provide that for you.

Any manufacturer warranty is voided if you purchased a "USED" or "SLIGHTLY USED" item.

Returning a bat with Free Return Shipping AND other items that do not have Free Return Shipping? Shipping charge(s) are as follows: 

$15.00 First item + $5.00 each additional item returned will be deducted from your refund.

If you received free shipping with your order and then you ship back only part of your order as a return, we will deduct a shipping charge from your refund for what you kept if the item(s) would not qualify for free shipping.

Warranty Bats - What Bat Will I Get In Return?

There is no guarantee which bat the manufacturer will send as a replacement. They decide and send you the most similar bat available.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Bats sent in for warranty with older stamps and or certifications that are no longer being made or no longer available from the maker of your bat may be replaced with the newest certification available, and NOT the exact same bat you sent in.

This is an especially important fact for purchasers of 1.20 USSSA stamp slowpitch softball bats as old bats sent in for warranty purposes will be replaced with the newest USSSA slowpitch stamp bats.

CheapBats.com does not accept warranty replacement bat returns for credit or exchange.
