90 Day Change of Mind Returns Policy

BIG W gives you 90 days to return a product that you’ve changed your mind on. This policy is in addition to your rights under the Australian Consumer Law, which are described in our Faulty Goods Returns Policy.

Returns within 90 days

BIG W will happily give you a refund or exchange within 90 days of purchase, provided you have proof of purchase and the product:

  • is still in its original and saleable condition and packaging, with all accessories included
  • has not been worn or used and, if a perishable product, is not expired
  • is not a personalised item, digital download, pre-paid card, voucher or clearance item

Returns can be processed at any BIG W store, including online orders. Refunds will only be made using the original payment method stated on your proof of purchase. Please note that delivery fees paid for online orders are non-refundable for change of mind returns.

For layby returns, please refer to BIG W’s Layby Policy, available at https://www.bigw.com.au/lay-by. For buy now, pay later purchases such as Afterpay, please follow the returns process outlined in your parcel.

Faulty Product Returns Policy

Our goods and services come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law. For major failures with the service, you are entitled:

  • to cancel your service contract with us; and
  • to a refund for the unused portion, or to compensation for its reduced value.

You are also entitled to choose a refund or replacement for major failures with goods. If a failure with the goods or a service does not amount to a major failure, you are entitled to have the failure rectified in a reasonable time. If this is not done you are entitled to a refund for the goods and to cancel the contract for the service and obtain a refund of any unused portion. You are also entitled to be compensated for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage from a failure in the goods or service.

Returns of faulty products

If the problem is major, you are entitled to a replacement, repair or refund. Examples of major failure are when the product:

  • has a problem that would have stopped you buying it had you known about it;
  • is unsafe;
  • is significantly different from the description of the product; or
  • doesn’t do what we said it would do,

but does not include damage caused by misuse or returns simply due to change of mind.

If the problem is not major, we may choose to give you a free repair instead of a replacement or refund if this is possible.

If we cannot repair the product within a reasonable time, you can choose a refund or replacement. We reserve the right to refuse to provide a refund, repair or replacement if the problem has, for instance, arisen because the product was misused by the customer.

Proof of purchase

Returns must be accompanied by a receipt or other itemised, verifiable proof of purchase such as a Woolworths Rewards statement. In certain circumstances, you may be required to provide further information such as photo identification for loss prevention or legislative requirements. Information collected in this manner will be stored securely in accordance with BIG W’s Privacy Policy. BIG W retains the right to refuse a refund for unverified purchases.

Remember to backup your data

If you need to return a product that contains user-generated data (such as cameras, mobile phones or storage drives), please remember to backup any data in an alternative location as the repair or replacement may result in loss of data.

Manufacturer’s warranties

Some products come with an additional manufacturer’s warranty as indicated in the documentation provided with the relevant products. Should you wish to make any claim under a manufacturer’s warranty, you can do so directly with the relevant manufacturer. However, our friendly customer service team can also assist you with an enquiry of this nature.
