We are happy to assist you in the cancellation of any order prior to shipment. Please call our customer care advocates at (866)344-3875 to request cancellation of your order.

Once an order has already shipped, it cannot be canceled, rerouted or redirected. If you would like to return the item, you will need to follow the "Standard Return Policy".
