Returns & Exchange Policy
Returns & Exchanges
Michael Stars wants you to be completely satisfied with your purchase and will gladly accept returns or exchanges of unwashed, unworn or defective merchandise with original receipt and tags attached up to 45 days from date of online purchase. We guarantee all merchandise to be free of manufacturing defects* and will accept any imperfect items for full refund or exchange.
We offer free return shipping for all full-price merchandise within the USA. Intimates, jewelry and sale items 50% off or higher are FINAL SALE and an $8 processing fee will automatically be deducted from your refund if returning/exchanging these. Orders with promotional items or gift with purchase (GWP) are eligible for a refund only when the GWP or related items purchased are included; otherwise, only an exchange of merchandise will be authorized.
When making an exchange be sure to specify the new item(s) requested by including the style/color/size on the return/exchange form. Note that standard shipping fees will be charged for the delivery of all exchanges. Balances owed will be credited to the original credit card/tender used for online purchase. Refunds will be issued if items requested for exchange are not available online at that time.
Please allow up to 2 weeks for your return package to reach our facility. Your refund or exchange will be processed within 5-7 business days once received. Full refunds will only be issued on the original credit card/tender used for online purchase and may take up to one complete billing cycle to display on your credit card statement.
Send all returns/exchanges in the original packaging. Your package will be returned to us via the United States Postal Service. Affix our prepaid label to your package and take it to your local post office or place it in a USPS mailbox.
If you decide to use your own shipping carrier, you will need to cover the cost of the return postage. We recommend choosing a carrier that offers insurance and tracking services for your protection. Only merchandise received by our Return Department will be refunded/exchanged. Send package(s) to the following address:
