  • Labor, delivery and/or completed installation services.
  • Items that have been damaged through customer use or abuse.

(3) Defective merchandise exchange:

  • Defective merchandise can be exchanged within 30 days of purchase as long as you have the original packaging and warranty card and the warranty card has not been filled out. If you do not have the original packaging or have already filled out the warranty card, you will need to send the defective item to the manufacturer.

(4) Refund of promotional items and bundles are subject to the following:

  • Samy's Camera sometimes offers promotional items and savings with a purchase or extra savings on a bundle of items when they are purchased together.
  • When a promotional item is returned, the value of the promotional item will be deducted from the refund amount. For example, if you purchase a camera and get a free camera case and memory valued at $40, the value of $40 will be subtracted from your return.
  • When an item included as part of a promotional bundle is returned, the bundled discount is void and the value of the bundled discount will be applied to the refund. This occasionally results in additional funds being owed to Samy's Camera. For instance, if you receive $200 in savings when you purchase a laptop and a printer together and you return either item, the $200 amount will be subtracted from your refund.

If conditions are not met, Samy's Camera reserves the right to refuse the return or charge a restocking fee up to 15%.
