Returns & Exchanges
General Returns Information
You are entitled to a replacement, credit or refund where item(s) are:
- wrongly described
- different from a sample shown to you.
We are not required to replace your product if you simply change your mind.
However, if you are not happy with your product, our Store Managers may, at their discretion, decide to exchange or provide you with a rebel Gift Card, providing the product is returned to us in its original new condition with proof of purchase. Please let us know if you are unsatisfied with a product or the service you have received from us.
How long do you have to return a product?
Consumer guarantees under the Australian Consumer Law are not limited by a defined time period and can vary from product to product depending on the nature of goods, price and statements made on packaging and product labels. Our Store Managers can assist you with further information about the warranty period for the product you return.
Expenses relating to product returns
Any expenses relating to the return of your product to a rebel store will normally be your cost. For online store purchases that meet the return criteria, we will pay for return freight for any parcel under 20kg in weight. Parcels in excess of 20kg will need to be assessed by our Customer Care Team. Should a Store Manager, at their discretion, refund an online purchase if you change your mind, the refund or rebel gift card issued will be for the value of the purchased items online, excluding any delivery fee incurred.
Some products need to be assessed
We may need to assess your product to determine whether a repair, replacement or refund is appropriate. Products that may need to be sent to the manufacturer or their repair agent for assessment include:
- cricket bats, tennis racquets and similar items
- heart rate monitors and other electrical or technological products
- clothing, compression garments, some footwear
- bulky goods such as treadmills, exercise bikes, and home gyms.
Liaising with the manufacturer
For some product assessments you may have the option to liaise directly with the manufacturer or their repair agent. Our Store Team Members can provide you with the relevant manufacturer contact details.
Products assessed as having a minor fault will be repaired by the manufacturer and returned to you within a reasonable time. We will offer a refund or replacement if the product is assessed as having a major failure.
In some cases a refund, replacement or repair may not be offered if you:
- substantially modify the product
- misuse the product contrary to user instructions or packaging labels
- simply change your mind.
Products that are usually excluded under our Returns Policy unless they are faulty include:
- tailor-made customer orders
- underwear (thermals and swimwear) and socks
- rebel Gift Cards, vouchers, credit vouchers.
Special procedure for the return of certain products
The repair of certain electrical or computing goods may result in the loss of user-generated data. Please ensure that you have made a copy of any data saved on your goods. Goods presented for repair may be replaced by refurbished goods of the same type rather than being repaired. Refurbished parts may be used to repair the goods.
Bulky product returns
For safety reasons, please contact your nearest local rebel store before returning any bulky products. We may be able to organise a supplier’s technician to inspect these products at your site:
- exercise bikes
