How does your free shipping work?

We offer "free shipping" or "free shipping and free returns" on many of our products. "Free shipping" refers to standard shipping; express delivery and second day charges are extra. Our "free shipping and free returns" offer is available to the lower 48, continental U.S. states only, not available on orders to Hawaii, Alaska, Canada, Mexico or other international destinations. Lamps Plus Open Box orders also do not qualify for "Free Shipping". Products that ship by freight are not eligible for free shipping or free returns. "Free returns" does not apply to items with giclee art shades, Color Plus and Tiffany Color Plus brand items, or certain products with designer shades.

Do Lamps Plus Open Box orders qualify for Free Shipping?

Lamps Plus Open Box orders do not qualify for Free Shipping. Items available for sale on Lamps Plus Open Box are previously returned, or lightly used, and are available at discounted rates up to 70% off. All Open Box items are meticulously inspected by our warehouse team to make sure they are in good working condition prior to being listed online. As items available on Lamps Plus Open Box are sold at a discounted rate, and must undergo an extra inspection, they do not qualify for Free Shipping.

To do this, simply click on the "Store Pick Up" option that appears on either the Product Page or the cart checkout page and fill in the necessary information. When your order has arrived at the store, you will receive an email confirmation that it is ready for pickup. Please wait for the pickup confirmation email before going to the store location.

What kind of packing materials does Lamps Plus use?

We are committed to using eco-friendly packing solutions whenever possible. We use air-filled pillow bags that efficiently pack into boxed shipments and reduce the amount of packing material needed for each order. We also use 100 percent biodegradable starch pellets as packing materials. These static-free pellets have the look of the old-fashioned plastic packing peanuts, but are made to degrade quickly in landfills and are completely petroleum, CFC and HCFC free.

Returns & Replacements

What is your returns policy?

If for any reason you are unsatisfied with a purchase, it can be returned within 60 days of the date you receive it. Absolutely no returns or exchanges will be made after 60 days. Note that other conditions and terms apply. To ensure that your return is processed accurately and promptly, please review our complete returns policy.

Do you carry lamp parts?

If we do not have a part in stock we will gladly refer you to a vendor that carries it.

How does your "no restocking fee" policy work?

If your return falls within our 60 day return policy, we will not charge a restocking fee on items purchased that are part of our regular assortment from a Lamps Plus store, in-store kiosk or online at This includes items depicted in a Lamps Plus print catalog and other advertising materials.

We do apply a restocking fee to items that are special ordered and not included in our regular assortment online or in-store. Special ordered items that are returned or cancelled are subject to a restocking fee of 20% of the item price.

Room of Choice Delivery items are also subject to a restocking fee of 10% of the item price. This policy only applies to returns for refund that do not involve shipping damage or product defect.

Please note that all returned merchandise must be in the original packaging. Merchandise returned with cut wires or loose crystal will be subject to a $50 fee. For more information, view our complete returns policy.

PayPal and PayPal Later are available as payment options at checkout. Personal checks, purchase orders and money orders are also accepted, but you must first call in your order to 800-782-1967. For personal checks, purchase orders and money orders, please note that we cannot ship your purchases until these funds clear our bank, a process which may add additional time to your order. Purchase orders must be faxed to us at 818-341-1618 with the original signature attached, then the form must be mailed to us to complete final processing.

How does PayPal Later work?

Lamps Plus uses PayPal Later, a leading buy now / pay later company, to offer a flexible payment option to our customers. You will see PayPal Later listed on our product pages, and it will show as a payment option in your shopping cart at checkout if your order qualifies. At this time the minimum PayPal Later order is $30.

If you are a PayPal customer you can log into your account at

Do you have a minimum order policy?

We require a minimum online order of $10 at The vast majority of our items are more than $10 so this usually isn't a problem, but for smaller items, we need a minimum dollar amount in order to meet minimum shipping and handling charges.

When and how do you charge my card? What is an "authorization hold"?

If you are paying by credit card or debit card, an authorization will be placed on your card to hold funds for the amount of your order.

This authorization hold means you cannot use the amount of funds needed for your order total, but the funds have been reserved for us, but not yet been transferred to us. This hold ensures that the funds will be available on your account when your order is processed. Depending on how long it takes for your order to ship it may be necessary to process a new authorization hold.

Most authorization holds last from 3 to 7 days, but may vary depending on the bank or financial institution you are using. For specific information please contact your card-issuing bank or institution for its policy.

As your merchandise leaves our warehouse, we'll charge the form of payment that you used when placing your order and will send you a shipping confirmation email. Your card will only be charged when your order ships and you will only be charged once for what you have ordered.

Pricing & Warranties

What do "sale prices," "strikethrough," and "regular prices" mean, and how does Lamps Plus calculate them for advertising on its website and in its stores?

Lamps Plus offers some items for sale at a reduced price for limited periods of time. A "sale price" is a reduced price at which Lamps Plus is offering a particular item for sale for a limited period of time which will not exceed 44 out of the last 90 calendar days, and is frequently less. When Lamps Plus is offering a sale price on an item on its website it utilizes the following description: (a) the product page lists the sale price; (b) below the sale price Lamps Plus lists the regular price with a strikethrough mark; (c) adjacent to the regular price is a notation of the savings available during the sale period; and (d) Lamps Plus lists the end date for the sale (i.e. item A’s sale price is $75, the regular price is $100; the savings available is $25 and the sale ends on April 15, 2023).

Please note that a "regular price" or "former price" is a price at which Lamps Plus has offered the item in question for the majority of the last 90 calendar days. However, a number of factors can affect an item’s price and value in a particular locality or at a particular time. Therefore, Lamps Plus cannot guarantee that this price reflects the lowest price in the marketplace for the item in question, or the prevailing market price at any given time in any given geographic region for similar items. Again, the "regular price," the "former price," or the price noted by a strikethrough is the price that Lamps Plus offered the item during the past 90 days. Please refer to "Other Discounts and Reduced Pricing" in the following section for a more detailed explanation of other discounted pricing.

Please further note that sale pricing is valid only through the dates displayed on individual product pages. Please note that quantities may be limited, and that offers are good only for in-stock merchandise. Sale pricing is first come, first served, and no rain-checks will be issued. The pricing is not valid on special orders, previous orders, or with other coupons or discounts. Lamps Plus also lists sale pricing in emails, catalogs and other printed materials. Typographic, photographic and/or descriptive errors both in print and online are subject to correction. Please contact us if you have any questions about a sale price by calling 1-800-782-1967 or by asking one of our in-store associates or sales staff.

What are Lamps Plus' other discounts and reduced pricing, and what do they mean?

Clearance Pricing means a special price for an item that will be discontinued and no longer sold by Lamps Plus for the foreseeable future and which may contain a reference that compares the special clearance price to the initial offered price for the item.

“Open Box” items are items that have been returned, or otherwise have missing/irregular packaging; and items that have been discontinued by Lamps Plus or the manufacturer. Lamps Plus will sometimes reduce or discount the price of certain irregular merchandise. In the event an item’s price has been reduced or discounted for these (or similar) reasons, Lamps Plus provides a description re: the reason for the discount, i.e. the item offered for sale will be described as “opened box” or “discontinued item”. Lamps Plus may also include a reference to the current price for the same item in new condition.

"Professional," "Pro Member Special," "Pro Special Price," "Trade Price," and "Hospitality Price" are references to special prices that are only available to professional trades, companies in trade services that have special pricing, or hotels. Such pricing sometimes references or compares normal prices available to the general public.

“Kit” or “bundled” items (two or more products sold together as a unit) may be offered at a single price. The price of these items may be impacted by the sum of the kit or bundle’s multiple components.

How does your Price Matching Policy work?

We want you to shop Lamps Plus with the confidence that we offer the best prices anywhere!

If within 60 days of your purchase, you find the identical product advertised for less by one of our competitors, we will match that price and refund the difference! Please note, price comparisons using different systems of currency are excluded. For a complete description, see our Price Matching Policy page.

Lamps Plus reserves the right to revoke any stated offer and to correct any error, inaccuracy or omission, including after an order has been submitted.
