What Is Curry’s PC World’s Laptop and Computer Returns Policy? The Short Answer

In short, if you’ve changed your mind you should return a laptop or desktop PC within 14 days of purchase if purchased online and within 21 days if purchased in-store. If the item is faulty this is extended to 30 days from purchase or delivery.

We’ll cover the details below in more detail…

How to Return My Laptop or Desktop PC to Currys PC World

You can either return your laptop/PC in-store (to any of their stores) or online using the DPD pickup service using this form.

As above, if purchased in-store, you should return your item within 21 days of purchase if you’ve simply changed your mind and don’t want the product. If purchased online this is shortened to 14 days.

If you want one of Curry’s delivery partners to pick your computer up then complete this form which should be done within 14 days if you’ve changed your mind or 30 days if there’s a fault with the product.

Speak to their handy webchat if you have any issues with your return.

Do Curry’s Offer Free Returns?

Yes, they provide free returns using DPD courier.

You will also be refunded any delivery charges for having the product delivered in most cases.

Does Curry’s PC World Require a Receipt to Return a Laptop/PC?

Curry’s official no-receipt policy is that you do need a receipt to return a product to them.

However, they will also accept a sales invoice (this should have been emailed to you if you purchased it online) or a bank statement.

What About Packaging and Accessories?

Curry’s PC World stipulates that you should return your item with all packaging and accessories.

They state that the product should also be unused if you’ve purchased it in-store and you’ve changed your mind. Clearly, if you’re returning the products because it’s developed a fault then it’s expected that your laptop/PC will have been opened.

How Long Will it Take to Receive My Money Back?

It can take up to 14 days to process your refund but can depend on your bank or credit/debit card issuer and whether you return your item in the post by mail or in-store (the former will take longer).

If you haven’t received your money within 14 days then speak to webchat.
