You can reach our customer service department by e-mail or mail.

Please note that order support e-mails are answered Monday to Friday during business hours EST. Please include your name and e-mail address.

If you are contacting us about a specific transaction, please try to include as much information as possible, such as order number and date, what items were in the order, and the total amount paid.

2. What if I have a problem with something I buy?

The Criterion Collection will refund the full purchase amount (including any applicable sales tax, but excluding any shipping and handling fees) if an item is returned within 30 days of the date we ship it to you. Shipping and handling will only be refunded if the problem is the result of our error. All returns are subject to a 10% restocking fee based on your merchandise total.

DVD returns/exchanges will only be accepted if the outer shrink-wrap is intact.

T-shirt and hat returns/exchanges will only be accepted if the item is unwashed and unworn.

Recipients of gifts (as designated in the ship-to address of the order) may exchange items only for ones of equal or lesser value. Refunds can only be made in the original form of payment and only to the original purchaser.

Returns, exchanges, and defective discs should be sent to:

The Criterion Collection

5. What if I want to cancel an order?

If you have received a shipment confirmation e-mail from us, your order cannot be changed by you or by our customer service department. We try to ship every order as soon as possible, so we cannot cancel orders for in-stock items once received. For return instructions, please contact customer service at orders@criterion.com.

8. Is it safe to use my credit card?

Shopping online with us is very secure.

All pages in the store that ask for or display personal information, including your credit card information, are secured by 128-bit SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption. Shopping online with this industry-standard technology is extremely safe. You can use your web browser to confirm you are on a secure page. (Many browsers, including Internet Explorer, display a closed-lock icon to indicate that you are secure.) Also, a URL that begins with “https” indicates that you are on a secure page.

9. What is your privacy policy?

The Criterion Collection is committed to protecting your privacy. We do not sell, trade, or rent your personal information to others, period.

10. How do I know if my order has shipped?

When you place an order online, you’ll get an e-mail confirmation. Then you’ll get another e-mail when the order has actually shipped, which will include a tracking number. You can also check your orders page by signing in to Criterion.com and selecting “My Account” at the top of any page.

11. How do your T-shirts fit?

Please consult our sizing charts on the product pages for proper fit. T-shirts are fitted and run slightly small. If you’re not sure what size to get, we suggest you order a size larger than you would normally buy. We recommend low-heat, tumble, or air drying.

12. Do you offer institutional sales?

13. Do you have a loyalty program for people who buy directly from your website?

We appreciate the loyalty of our customers, and we do offer a loyalty points program. Here’s how it works: every dollar you spend at the Criterion store earns you a point. When you get to 500 points, we will send you a $50 gift certificate. To take advantage of this, you must register for a customer account at checkout with a valid e-mail address, so we can keep track of your total and credit your account. Shipping fees, sales tax, and gift certificates do not count toward the loyalty program.

14. Do you offer wholesale pricing?
