Vistek Return Policy
Return of Product
Vistek offers a 14-day refund and/or exchange for most merchandise. All returns are subject to inspection by a Vistek Associate and approval by Management. Any item considered for refund must be returned in as-new, unopened condition. We believe strongly this policy provides maximum protection for all Vistek customers.
Refund and Restocking Policies
When an item is approved for return, the following conditions must be met in order to process a refund.
The item must be accompanied by the original invoice (not a copy)
The total will be refunded in the fashion it was paid (debit, credit, etc)
If refunding is to a debit or credit card, the original cardholder must be present
Cash purchases totaling more than $200 must be refunded as a Vistek Gift Card or by cheque issued by Head Office
If Management determines that an item is returnable but does not meet all guidelines, Vistek reserves the right to charge a Restocking Fee.
This fee will vary depending on the item's condition and value; the minimum restocking fee is 10%.
Used and Refurbished Merchandise
Used items may be returned within 14 days of original purchase; to qualify, items must meet all guidelines laid out for standard returns, including packaging and item condition. Exceptions to policy may be made to accommodate used equipment condition.
