Return Protection can refund you for eligible purchase(s) charged entirely on an eligible American Express® Card. Coverage is limited to 90 days from purchase, up to $300 per item and up to a maximum of $1,000 per Card Member account per calendar year. Shipping and handling costs for the purchase will not be refunded. Items are eligible if they are in “like new” condition and if they cannot be returned to the merchant from which they were originally purchased. Certain purchases are not eligible for refund, e.g. motorized vehicles, perishable items, computer software, and jewelry. Other important exclusions apply. Purchases must be made in the 50 United States of America, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico or the U.S. Virgin Islands. You may be required to send the purchased item to us, in which case we will reimburse you for shipping cost. To be eligible for claim payment, your account must be in good standing on the eligible card that maintains the original charge. Return Protection is subject to additional important terms, conditions and exclusions.
