These are the terms and conditions (the “Sale Terms”) that apply when you purchase products on our website including gift cards and e-gift cards (“merchandise”) from Hollister Co. By placing an order for merchandise through HollisterCo.com, Hollister Co. microsites or mobile sites, or mobile applications (collectively our “Website”) or by phone, you accept these Sale Terms and agree to be bound by them. Because these Sale Terms are subject to change, please review and save a copy of them for your records prior to placing each order. If you have any questions about the Sale Terms or any aspect of your order, please e-mail our Customer Service Department at HollisterCo@HollisterCo.com or call 866-426-1285 or +614-219-3019.
Order and Acceptance
- Each part of an order that you submit to us constitutes an offer to purchase merchandise. If you have placed your order through our Website, after we receive your order you will receive an email from us confirming receipt of your order, usually in minutes. If you do not receive an email, contact us before you try to place another order for the same merchandise. You should note that the email that we send to you confirming receipt of your order does not constitute acceptance of your order.
- Hollister Co. is not deemed to have accepted your order (or any part of your order) until the requested merchandise is shipped and we have sent a shipment confirmation email. You can track the progress of your order by clicking here.
- If we reject your order because of an error in pricing or other information about the merchandise, we will notify you at the email address you provided and ask you whether you would like to re-submit your order to purchase the relevant merchandise once we have corrected the error. If we have notified you that we have accepted your order by sending you a shipment confirmation email, you will not be required to pay more than the price that was displayed on our Website at the time that you placed your order. If we have sent you merchandise which is different from the description of the relevant merchandise on our Website at the time that you place your order, you can return or exchange it. For more details, please see the return and exchange policy.
Although it is rare that Hollister Co. would refuse to accept an order, we reserve the right to deny any order for any reason, including where the following situations arise:
Error in Billing, Payment or Shipping Information
Some orders cannot be processed due to an error in information you have provided, which includes, but is not limited to:

- or any suspected fraudulent information.
Merchandise Shipping Delay or Unavailability
If an item of merchandise is delayed out of our fulfillment center or becomes unavailable, or if there is an error on our Website relating to the order (for example, an error relating to the price or description of merchandise) Hollister Co. may cancel the order. If this occurs we will contact you so you are aware.

If your order has already been processed, you may exchange or return the merchandise purchased on this Website to a Hollister Co. store located in the US, or send the merchandise back to us (attention, “Returns Department”) in accordance with the terms of our return and exchange policy. Please note, this excludes gift cards and e-gift cards for which all sales are final and are subject to the terms and conditions found in the details links on the gift card and e-gift card pages.

Merchandise on Backorder
Merchandise on backorder is temporarily out of stock. If we are unable to ship any merchandise on backorder within thirty (30) days from the date of your order, we will notify you at the e-mail address that you have provided. You will not be charged for merchandise on backorder until it ships. Shipping and handling for each item in an order is distributed so it is directly proportional to the cost of an item and will not be charged in the applicable proportional amount until the respective item(s) ship(s). All items in an order will be shipped via the shipping service type selected when placing the order. The status of a backordered item will remain open on an order until the merchandise is in stock and we take payment and ship the merchandise, or until we contact you that that item was cancelled, or if you contact us to change or cancel your order.
Prices and Payments
Hollister Co. may vary the price of its merchandise at any time. After we accept an order, we will not alter the price, except for merchandise eligible for price adjustment.
For orders shipped to the US and Canada, we are happy to process a price adjustment for you if we reduce the price of any merchandise (in the same color and size) that you have ordered from us within fourteen (14) days from the date that you submit your order. We offer price adjustments only for merchandise purchased at the original price. Each item that you purchase from us is eligible for only one (1) price adjustment. To request a price adjustment, please contact Customer Service by email at HollisterCo@HollisterCo.com, including your order number and details of the eligible merchandise.
Payments by Credit Card
When you pay by Credit Card, Hollister Co. reserves the right to request additional evidence or proof of billing information. Debit payment methods will be processed as credit. The charge for your order will appear on your credit card statement as ‘ANF*HollisterCo.com’.' If you contest the validity or amount of a charge related to an order with Hollister Co. and believe it to be fraudulent, please email us at Hollister_OrderService@HollisterCo.com.
Hollister Co. will prosecute to the fullest extent of the law any fraudulent activities related to the reversal of a valid charge for an order filled and delivered to the customer. Should your order be cancelled, any 'authorization holds' will drop of your account within three to five business days.
Shipping and handling charges will depend on the value of your order, the country to which the merchandise is being shipped, and your required shipping time. You can find a list of our shipping and handling charges and our delivery terms here.
