Target Breast Pump Return Policy

How Can I Return A Breast Pump To A Target Store?

To return a breast pump to a Target store, you have to bring the unopened breast pump with the original receipt or return the barcode within 90 days of purchase unless stated otherwise.

When in-store, customers can visit the customer service desk or checkout counter to have their return processed.

When at the customer service desk, you will have to show the cashier a valid government-issued photo ID (along with the receipt or return barcode) for verification purposes.

Once your return is processed, you’ll be offered total cash or card refund.

Note that refunds are issued with the same method you used at the time of purchase, so you’ll need to bring the original payment card with you.

Although cash refunds are dispensed immediately, you will have to allow 1-5 days for card refunds to process.

How Long Do I Have To Return A Breast Pump To Target?

Regular customers are provided a 90-day time frame beginning on the day of purchase or delivery date to return breast pumps.

However, Target Circle members or those who paid using the Target RedCard are entitled to an additional 30 days and so have 120 days to bring back breast pumps.

Additionally, customers who purchased or received a breast pump from a baby registry list will have one year from the due date to return an unopened breast pump.

Can I Return Used Or Open Breast Pumps To Target?

Can You Return Used Or Open Breast Pumps To Target?

Unfortunately, you cannot return a used breast pump to Target under any circumstances due to hygiene reasons. Breast pumps are only accepted for a return if these are unopened with all the seals intact.

However, Target generally issues full refunds or replacements for breast pumps delivered to the customer that are defective or damaged.

Can I Return A Breast Pump To Target Without A Receipt?

You can return up to $200 worth of items (including breast pumps) to Target without a receipt per year.

Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to identify your breast pump purchase at Target if you have lost the receipt.

For example, proof of transactions made using Target RedCard (debit, credit, or Target MasterCard) and third-party credit cards powered by Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover are easy to look up at the till.

You must remember to bring a valid government-issued photo ID for Target to verify your details. Once the transaction is verified, you’ll receive a full refund or exchange.

If you cannot prove the purchase, returns will be at the store manager’s discretion.

Provided the breast pump is fully sealed, you may receive a store credit on a merchandise return card at the product’s current sale price.

Can I Return A Breast Pump Purchased With A Target Gift Card?

You can return a breast pump if you purchased it with a Target gift card to any store within 90 days of purchase.

You will have to bring the sealed breast pump and the gift card you used to make the payment since the funds will be reloaded to the same card.

Note that Target encourages customers to keep hold of any used Target gift cards after purchase until they are 100% sure of the product since these are required at the time of return.

How Can I Return Breast Pumps Purchased Online?

Breast pumps purchased online are returnable in-store or via free mail through’s online return center.

To start a return, access your online Target account, click on ‘Purchases’ under the Orders tab and specify the unwanted breast pump by selecting ‘Return an Item.’ You can either return to the store with a unique printable barcode or return by mail.
