Holiday Shopping FAQs

Free holiday shipping options and extended returns.
Shop and ship early!

As with last holiday season, online shopping volumes are expected to be extremely high this holiday and global supply chain will continue to experience unprecedented demand. As a result, delivery delays are expected. We encourage you to shop early this year, to ensure that your items arrive on time.

1. What is the HP Store holiday return and exchange policy?

To allow time for holiday shopping and gift giving, purchases made between November 1st and December 25th may be returned until January 15th, 2023, or up to 30 days after the delivery date, whichever is greater. Non-returnable items remain non-returnable. A restocking fee of up to 15% may apply unless the return is due to an HP Store error.

More information is available at: https://www.hp.com/us-en/shop/cv/returnsandexchanges.

2. What is the last day to order to receive before Christmas?

Our customized laptops and desktops have specified lead-times, please ensure your “Ships on” date is December 16th or sooner or choose a ready-to-ship computer. Note that our commercial series products (including Z, Elite, Pro) have an earlier cut-off date (review the product for details).

Ship on date

For ready-to-ship products with a lead-time, please ensure that the estimated ship date and shipping speed will meet your needs for delivery.

Please understand that supply constraints may unexpectedly prevent us from shipping on time for Christmas delivery. Therefore, if time to receive is critical for you, please consider a ready-to-ship computer which you can find here:

For in-stock products, please be sure to order in time for the shipment to reach you and remember to select the appropriate shipping method. Between the dates of 12/3 – 12/22, please use the ‘Express’ or "Priority" shipping option to ensure your order arrives when you need it and/or prior to Christmas (12/25).

3. What should I know about shipping times this holiday season?

HP and all retailers are expecting a very busy holiday season again this year. Shipping carriers including FedEx and UPS are expecting record package volume through November and December. While we have prepared for increased volume, there may be unanticipated delays that arise in the shipping and delivery process. Please keep this in mind and use your shipment tracking number/s to track your packages.
