How to return goods to us
There are different methods of returning goods. You must contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org before you return your item and can use any one of the options listed below:
- You may drop off the item at one of our stores in Sandton City, Menlyn Park, Canal Walk or Gateway. There is no cost associated with using this method;
- You may select a pick-up date and the item will be collected from you. We will charge a fee for this service.
How to package an item you want to return
The item to be returned must be packed in its original packaging in another box with as much padding as possible so that it can be returned safely to us. If the returning product has not been packaged properly and is damaged, then we simply cannot give you a refund. It is your responsibility to package the item safely. Please make sure that you include all the items to be returned, including any FREE gifts, gift-with-purchases or promotional items that you received.
How we handle your refund
Returns within 30 days
You will be offered a GYBC gift voucher, a money refund or an exchange for another LEGO product. Refunds are handled within 10 working days of us acknowledging your return (refunds can take up to 3 working days to reflect in your account).
Refunds are handled within 10 working days of logging the return with us and can take up to 3 working days to reflect in your account. Replacement products might take longer as it depends on whether we have stock available. Your exchange will be expedited to the best of our ability but we cannot guarantee availability.
Goods purchased with vouchers or E-Gift cards
We have two types of vouchers:
- a fixed amount gift, e.g.: R200 paid by gift giver (E-gift voucher)
- a promotional fixed Brick Rewards voucher, e.g. R250 off
Gift vouchers and Brick Rewards are treated the same way. We cannot refund in cash any purchases made with a gift voucher or Brick Rewards. We will either reinstate the used gift voucher or issue you with a new one if you choose to return the goods to us.
If you use a voucher to pay for an order and you later cancel the order (or part thereof) prior to delivery of the goods, or you return one or more goods in accordance with this policy, the value of the fixed voucher will be deducted off the purchase price of the cancelled or returned goods. We will credit you for the balance, if any (or refund you if that is your preference). We will also provide you with a replacement fixed voucher of the same value as the original fixed voucher used. We may in our sole discretion impose restrictions on the use of the replacement fixed voucher. For further information on restrictions on promotional vouchers, please see our voucher terms.
Goods Purchased while a Promotion is running
If you have purchased an item that you wish to return / exchange at the same time that a promotion is running, such as a FREE gift-with-purchase offer, please note that there are very specific terms and conditions governing these FREE promotional items and gifts. You may not return a product that you have purchased while such a promotion is running without returning the FREE promotional item at the same time. For further information on specific terms and conditions related to promotions, please see our Offers page.
Online transactions cooling-off period
Section 44 of the Electronic Communications and Transactions Act (2002) may apply to your electronic transactions. If you qualify as a consumer under the ECT Act, you may be entitled to cancel some electronic transactions within seven days, without reason or penalty. 'Cancel' means each party will be placed in the same position that they were in before the transaction took place. This means that you have to return new, unused goods and we will refund the purchase price. Section 44 is only applicable if you are a natural person – in other words, a human being, and excludes a transaction from a company. You must also be the end user of the goods or service. The transaction must be an electronic transaction — a transaction concluded via (in whole or in part) the website, email, or SMS. You must return any goods in new condition with all original packaging and materials (including any accessories or parts). We will refund the purchase price of the goods within 30 days of the date of cancellation. Please send an email to email@example.com and we will assist you to return the goods to us.
