Can online items be returned in a store?
No, American Greetings retailers and Carlton stores will not be able to refund items purchased online. To receive your refund you must ship your item back using the label provided by customer service.
How is sales tax calculated into my order?
The tax rate that is applied to your order is combined with state and local rates for the address where your order is being shipped. American Greetings charges sales tax on orders being shipped to Ohio, Florida, New York, Texas and California.
Are the ornaments sold online the only ornaments American Greetings offers?
No, the ornaments that are sold online do not represent the entire ornament collection. Our retailers may have some or all of the ornaments that are being sold online. You can find additional ornaments at some of our retail partner locations. There is a possibility that a retailer may have a different version of an ornament that we are selling online. If you have purchased an ornament online and you have found the ornament at a cheaper price, we can provide you with a price match. Please visit the contact us page to contact customer service.
Are the items offered online also available in store?
Greeting cards and greeting card bundles will vary by retail partners and locations. Party supplies, gift wrap and stationery sets can be found online and in store.
Do you have personalized cards?
AmericanGreetings.com offers a membership to our printable cards, which can be personalized and printed at home. In addition, our sister site cardstore offers a variety of cards that you can personalize and have shipped to (or mailed for) you.
