How do I cancel my order?
All products with written or expressed warranties will be gladly satisfied, replaced or credited within the warranty time limit. If you wish to cancel your order, call our Customer Service Department during normal business hours. Unless the order is for a specialty item or the product has already shipped, your order will be cancelled without penalty. If your order is for a specialty item, we will have to verify with the manufacturer that the order can be cancelled. You would be responsible for any restock fees charged by that manufacturer. If your order has already shipped, you will have to request an RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization) by following the Warranty Info Link prompts in the Customer Care Center. You will be responsible for returning the shipment. There will be a restocking fee and no reimbursement for the original S&H charge.

What methods of payment does Lightbulbplanet.com accept?
We accept Visa, Master Card, and American Express. If you prefer to purchase with a cashier's check, money order, personal check or purchase order, you must contact an account manager in our sales department. They will be happy to take your order, determine the freight and sales tax if applicable and advise you of the total. An order paid with a personal check will be held until all funds are available. This may cause up to a 3 week delay.

How fast can Lightbulbplanet.com get my order to me?
