Target Diaper Return Policy

Target accepts returns on unopened and unused diapers within 90 days of purchase if you have the original receipt or an alternative proof of purchase. Diapers can be returned in-store or through the mail and exchanged for different sizes within 90 days.

Can I Return Opened Diaper Packages To Target?

If you are within the 90-day window and have the original receipt, you can return opened diapers (including brands such as Huggies, Up&Up, Pampers, Luvs, and Honest) to Target for a full refund or exchange.

Since diapers are sanitary products, they cannot be resold under any circumstances, so Target will be taking a loss by returning opened diapers.

However, you are more likely to get a refund if the diapers are defective or have caused an allergic reaction or another serious issue for you or the baby.

Anecdotal online stories have described people pleading their case often to levels of success, but in the end, the decision is left to the store manager’s discretion.

Can I Return Diapers Without A Receipt To Target?

You can return diapers to Target without a receipt if you provide alternative proof of purchase.

Target can find your order online if you purchased Target RedCard, Visa, Mastercard, AmEx, Discover, personal check, or Target gift card (which you must have retained).

Alternatively, you can access the digital barcode or receipt from your account to prove your purchase.

If you cannot provide proof of purchase, you will be refunded with a ‘merchandise return card.’ This is only valid in-store and cannot be redeemed online at

For all the above cases, you must present a valid form of government-issued photo ID for verification purposes.

Can I Return Diapers To Target After 90 Days?

Can I Return Diapers To Target After 90 Days?

You can return diapers to Target after 90 days, but you will be given the value of the lowest price of the item within the last 90 days to a merchandise card, which can only be used in-store.

However, if you purchased diapers using your Target RedCard, you will have 120 days to return them with a receipt after the purchase.

Moreover, if you purchased a Target-owned brand of diapers such as Up&Up, you will have up to one year to return the unopened diapers with the original receipt.

Can I Exchange My Diapers For A Different Size At Target?

If the diapers are sealed and unopened, you are within the 90-day return window, and you have the original receipt, you should be able to exchange them for a different size or brand at Target.

How Do I Return My Diapers To Target?

Diapers purchased on or at a Target store can be returned to any store to the Customer Services Desk with the original receipt or the barcode found in the Target app, Target delivery, or shipping confirmation email, and the original form of payment.

You can also return diapers bought at via mail, but you will have to cover the return shipping fees (unless Target made a shipping error).

Here are the typical waiting times you will face based on the mode of payment:

  • Target RedCard – 1 to 2 days
  • Third-party credit card – 1 to 3 days
  • Cash – 1 to 2 days

Requesting a Target refund through an Online Return Center may take up to 5 days to process.

Can I Return Diapers Purchased In A Different Store To Target?

You cannot return diapers purchased at a different store to Target.

Even if Target sells the same brand or type, the diapers must have been purchased at Target, and you must have proof of purchase to return the diapers to Target within 90 days.
