B&H Return Policy
B&H has a 30-day return policy that allows you to return an item for a full refund if you’re dissatisfied with it for any reason.
You can either return the item by shipping it back to B&H, or you can make an in-person return if you’re in the New York City area.
There are caveats to make a return, of course…
A returned item must be in new condition packaged in the original, unaltered box. All packing materials, blank warranty cards, manuals, and other accessories must be included.
The refund applies only to the price of the purchased item - shipping and handling fees will not be refunded.
Some items cannot be returned, like TVs or computers that have been taken out of the box and electronic downloads of software. Special order merchandise (i.e., a custom-configured computer) is not returnable either.
If you exchange the returned item for another one, B&H asks to allow 3-5 business days for the transaction to complete. If you return an item, it takes 5-7 days to credit your account.
B&H Photo Video Credit Card
B&H has its own credit card with special financing options that make it an attractive option for photographers.
If approved, you get six months no interest on purchases of $199 or more and 12 months no interest on purchases of $599 or more
There is no annual fee, you can apply online, and get an instant credit decision.
