Neiman Marcus Return Policy

Due to the high-end nature of their products, Neiman Marcus' return policy is pretty strict. While it is possible to return or exchange Neiman Marcus merchandise within 30 days of purchase, the item should be so pristine that it could realistically be put right back on the rack or shelf.

Neiman Marcus isn't the sort of store where you're able to buy an item, wear it once, and expect a full return. In order to retain any hope of a full refund, the item in question needs to be "salable." What exactly does that mean? Basically, it should be in the same condition as it was when you bought it.

Clothing items should still have all their original tag and be unworn/undamaged in any way. Any other items should still be in their original packaging and look brand new. Not sure whether your item qualifies? It's always worth a shot at taking it to the store to find out, but just be aware that Neiman Marcus reserves the right to decide whether or not an item still qualifies as salable.

On a more optimistic note, Neiman Marcus does offer price protection for up to 10 days of purchase. If you buy something for full price, only to see it offered at a discount within the 10 day period, you can always request a price adjustment for the difference.

If you do plan to make a purchase at Neiman Marcus, it's highly advised that you first create a free Neiman Marcus account online or in store. This will serve as an easy way to track your order history and provide proof of purchase for any items you may wish to return or exchange.

If the merchandise in question has been worn, damaged, or is no longer in the original packaging, then you may be out of luck. Clothing should still have the original tags, so make certain you try everything on before removing them.

If your item does not meet these standards, it may be worth contacting customer service or visiting a Neiman Marcus store in order to verify whether or not you have any options. While there are no guarantees that you'll be able to qualify for a return or exchange, it never hurts to ask, especially if you are a regular customer and don't make returns or exchanges often.

Gift Returns

While gift returns work similarly to regular returns, there are a few differences. The most important thing to keep in mind is that Neiman Marcus issues Merchandise Credit Gift Cards rather than refunds on gift items. The only exception is if your gift is valued at over $2,000.00, in which case federal law requires that you be issued a check for the item's value instead.

Otherwise, use this link to create a gift return slip if you know your order number and follow the above steps to return the item either in-store or through the mail. If you do not have a gift receipt or know your item's order number, then you'll want to reach out to 1-888-888-4757 for assistance.

Neiman Marcus does not offer returns on any items that have been altered, on special orders, personalized or monographed items, perishable items, "final sale" items, or cloth face mask coverings. They are also unable to process returns from their subsidiary stores, such as Bergdorf Goodman, Last Call, or Horchow stores.

How to find deals at Neiman Marcus

While Neiman Marcus tends to be a pretty pricey place to shop, it's also possible to find amazing deals from time to time. Be sure to check out the store's sales page, where you'll find designer clothing and accessories offered for up to 50% off.

Additionally, you can download the Neiman Marcus app and/or enjoy a discount on your first purchase by signing up for the free Neiman Marcus newsletter using the signup box at the bottom of the page.

Neiman Marcus also offers an additional rewards program called InCircle for Neiman Marcus or Bergdorf Goodman credit card holders. If you are a frequent Neiman Marcus shopper, then the program is definitely worth checking out. Every InCircle member enjoys perks like the ability to earn bonus points, access to certain shopping events, and exclusive publications.

Additional benefits are unlocked as you ascend to different "tiers" based on how much you've spent on your qualifying card. These include things like free 2-day shipping, perks cards, an InCircle concierge, and more.

Final Score

We give Neiman Marcus a return policy score of 2.5 out of 5 based mostly on how strict it is when it comes to returning items in pristine condition. In all fairness, it's pretty easy to understand why a luxury retailer would impose a return policy with such high standards. Due to their reputation as a high-end retailer, Neiman Marcus is unable to recoup their losses by offering damaged or used items for resale.

That said, they do understand that occasionally mishaps do happen, which is why they make it fairly easy to return items to customers who realize that they aren't going to work out relatively quickly after making a purchase. In order to be on the safe side, it's always best to try on any clothing items you plan to buy in store before checking out or keep a thorough record of your transaction if you plan to buy online.
