Returns

Home Theater Gear accepts returns of most non-defective, non-custom-order items within two weeks (14 days) of delivery for a 30% restocking fee, plus any shipping and handling fees. To begin the return process, please contact Home Theater Gear Customer Service. Returned items are eligible for either exchange or refund (customer's choice). If an exchange product is requested, the customer will still be billed the applicable shipping and restocking fees for the returned item, as well as any shipping fees for the new exchange item.

Custom order items, such as made-to-order theater seats, couches, and licensed sports team items may be returned for a 50% restocking fee, plus shipping and handling fees. Our Quick Ship Palliser home theater seats do not qualify as custom order products, and may be returned for the 30% restocking fee. If you received free shipping with your purchase, the shipping fees originally covered by Home Theater Gear will be deducted from your refund or billed to your account if you are requesting an exchange. Non-defective returns must be returned in the original packaging, including all papers such as instructions or warranties, and must be in new, unused condition.

  • Any product that has been used, installed, or modified after shipping from Home Theater Gear

Defective/Incorrect Products

If for any reason you receive an item that is damaged, or you receive the wrong item due to an error on Home Theater Gear's part, contact Home Theater Gear Customer Service within 10 days of receiving the defective item for a replacement. Home Theater Gear issues exchanges for defective items, not refunds.

Upon contacting Customer Service about a defective item, you will be issued an RMA number, to be included with the defective item being exchanged. Home Theater Gear will cover all shipping costs for defective items. If you do not contact Customer Service within 10 days of receiving the defective item, the return will be treated as a warranty issue, and will not be accepted as a defective item return.

Items Not Eligible for Defective Product Returns:

  • Any return not requested within the 10 day period after delivery of the product
  • Any item that is not damaged or defective, or does not constitute an error on Home Theater Gear's part
  • Clearance items (all clearance items are sold as-is, no returns)
  • Items not purchased from Home Theater Gear

Note: Home Theater Gear will not issue refunds or exchanges until after receiving the item being returned. This includes made-to-order items such as theater seats, couches, and licensed sports team products that typically take two weeks to ship; Home Theater Gear will not place the order for the replacement until the item being exchanged has been received.


Warranty Information

Out of Stock / Backorder Products

Pricing

Home Theater Gear will match any reputable competitor's normal retail price on any product. Simply call 281-550-9600 and refer the customer service representative to the website with the price you wish to match. Some restrictions apply, see our Price Match Guarantee for details.


Sales Tax

Home Theater Gear is required by law to collect sales tax on orders shipped anywhere in Texas. If your order qualifies for sales tax, the correct charges will be automatically added to your purchase total and displayed on the shipping and payment page during checkout, after you have entered your shipping address.

Although we are not required to collect tax on orders shipped to other states, some states require shoppers to file sales/use tax annually on any items ordered online or by other remote means. These sales/use taxes apply to any taxable item that did not have tax automatically removed by the retailer at the time of purchase. We recommend that all our customers check with their local tax authorities to determine if their purchases require sales/use tax to be filed.
