      Your refund will automatically go back to the original form of payment used for the purchase. In the event you used multiple forms of payment, your refund may be issued across all payment methods used. If your order is split between any form of payment and Steinhafels financing, your refund amount is first applied to your Steinhafels financing account. Refunds to a credit card typically take 3-5 days. Refunds for payments made via cash or personal check will be mailed in the form of a check and may take up to 10 business days.

    At Steinhafels we always guarantee you the lowest price possible. If the item you purchased at Steinhafels is sale-priced lower within 30 days of your purchase, we will issue you a refund for the difference upon request.

    At Steinhafels, you never need to shop anywhere else to find a lower price. However, if you do find a lower price on any item of the same brand, model number, and material at a local or online retailer during your shopping, tell us and we will match the price by crediting you 110% of the difference towards your purchase price. If within 30 days after your purchase, you find a lower price, Steinhafels will gladly issue you a refund for 110% of the difference. Price matches must also take into account sales tax, delivery type and delivery cost to the customer's door. Price match items must be available for immediate delivery from local or online retailer. When matching "pick-up" pricing, the competitor must have a pick-up location within the Wisconsin and Illinois delivery areas in which we serve. We will confirm the competitive price along with any costs of providing equivalent Steinhafels services in order to determine the price we will be matching.

       An item not stocked in our warehouse.

       An item displayed in our store, but available in a different color, size, or finish.

    • Our 15 Day Happiness Guarantee does not apply to special orders. However, factory warranties and Steinhafels one-year service policies do apply.
    • A qualifying deposit of 30% is required to be placed on credit card, cash or check. Only the remaining 70% may be financed.
    • You have up to 72 hours to cancel your special order from the time you place your order in our store. After this time, special order merchandise is non-refundable and non-returnable.
    • If your merchandise does not fit in your room (down the hallway, up the stairs, etc.) it cannot be returned since our manufacturers will not allow returns. Do not special order if you feel this may be a problem. Please take accurate measurements before ordering.
    • Dye lots on fabric samples may differ in shade from those actually delivered by the manufacturer. Steinhafels is not responsible for any dye lot differences.
    • If an item arrives damaged, our extensively trained, skilled craftsmen can restore the piece(s) to original condition. Furniture manufacturers, like auto and computer manufacturers, repair/replace component parts and do not replace the entire item.

    • Repair or replace merchandise at the discretion of Customer Service.

    Our buyers will audit the sales contract for pricing accuracy. If adjustments are needed you will be contacted for approval before your order is placed with the manufacturer.
