Can You Return Air Mattresses to Walmart?

Walmart lets you return unopened air mattresses for a full refund or exchange within 90-days. However, if you’ve opened the air mattress, then you can only get an exchange for the same or similar item within the same 90-day return period. You will need to return all packaging, provide a receipt, and bring your photo ID.

If you open your air mattress and find it has damage or won’t inflate, then you can return it, but your options are to exchange it for the same or similar items. Once an air mattress has been opened, there are health issues, and Walmart can not repackage or resell the product.

If your air mattress was purchased from the Walmart marketplace, you need to double-check the return policy for that specific seller. However, sellers have lower requirements to accept returns, including shorter timeframes, which could be as low as 30-days.
