Can I place orders over the phone?
We’re sorry, but we can only accept orders through the website directly. We cannot accept orders by phone, fax, postal mail, or email.
I am trying to find a specific item but don't see it?
We have made finding an item much easier on our new website. The easiest way is to enter an item name or number into the site search bar and the site will search our product catalog for you to try to find the specific item or items like it.
As an alternative, you can shop and locate items by selecting from the tab choices presented in the top navigation bar on the site. When you rollover each heading, a short menu will appear that further narrows merchandise selection by sub-category and merchandise type.
To find specific sizes, colors, fabrics or items in a particular price range, once you are in one of our sub-categories, there will be filtering choices along the left side navigation bar. You can “edit” your selections and the products shown will change as you narrow your choices.
If you still can’t find an item, please send us an email through “Contact Us” on the website and provide as much product information as you can – manufacturer, item #, color, size, fabric, etc. and we will contact you shortly.
Can I zoom in and see other views of a product? What about seeing items in different colors?
Yes, there are several ways. To enlarge an image on a product page, all you have to do is hover over the main image and click. You will then be able to zoom in and see product features and fabric details.
To view the product in different colors, when this feature is available, click on one of the swatches (color chips) on the right side of the product page. If we have photos of the image in the alternate color, the main image on the left will change. If not, it will stay static. We still have the item available in the other colors, but may not have had time to prepare the photo in the alternative or full range of colors or finish.
For many items, there are also Alternate Views provided to the lower left side of the main product photo. When you click on these images, the main photo will be replaced with the alternative view. Remember that alternate views are often only shot in one color of the item, so colors may not correspond directly to the color you are interested in.
When will I receive an item that I have asked to be Express or Priority shipped?
This depends on the time of day and the day of week upon which we receive your order and if the product qualifies for express shipping. Generally, for most items, if an order is received by 3 pm eastern time, it will be packed in our warehouse and provided to our shipping company within two business days. Express shipped items should then be received either the next day or the day after. For Priority shipped orders, they will then be received in 2 to 4 days.
If the order was presented after 3pm or on Saturday or Sunday, it will typically be packed the next business day (usually on Monday for weekend items, unless the Monday is a holiday, then it will be packed on Tuesday) and will be sent out to you that day. Express shipments will then be received in one to two days and Priority orders will be received in 2 to 4 days.
For items that are being sent from other than our warehouse or that are otherwise designated as ineligible for Express or Priority shipping, these items will be sent out standard shipping once the order has been confirmed and presented to the shipping company. This time frame will vary by item (see the product page for specific typical shipment time frames) and once it is shipped, it will usually be received within five to eight business days. When these items are included in your order, all items must be shipped via the Standard shipping option and Express and Priority shipping choices will not be offered. If you wish to have all but the ineligible item shipped using Express or Priority modes, we suggest that you order the ineligible item in a separate order. Then your other items may be delivered with expedited shipping and the ineligible item will follow using Standard shipping.
The product detail page will also provide you with estimated shipping times for each item.
Please note that when orders are placed with multiple items and Express or Priority shipping is selected, but one (or more) item is not eligible for rapid shipping, then you will receive multiple shipments on the order. Those products eligible for Express and Priority shipping will be received and shipped in the selected manner, but the ineligible item(s) will ship via standard methods as explained above.
For more information on shipping, see the "Shipping and Delivery" section below.

Shipping & Delivery
How long will it take to receive my order?
In most cases, orders received into our system before 3pm eastern time will be processed and shipped that day. For orders received after 3pm, they will generally be processed and shipped the next business day. If you are ordering on Saturday or Sunday, these orders will be processed on Monday, unless it is a holiday, and then they will be processed on the following Tuesday.
Once an order is processed, speed of delivery will be determined by shipping mode selected as follows::
- For Standard Shipping – these items usually arrive in 5 to 8 business days.
- For Priority Shipping – these orders usually arrive in 2 to 4 business days.
- For Express Shipping – these orders usually arrive in 1 to 2 business days.
- Please refer to your order confirmation page for estimated shipping times.
If an item is not available for immediate processing or will take extra time to prepare for shipping, this is generally indicated on the product page or will be indicated during the checkout process. A disclosure will appear stating that an item “Usually ships in XX days” or similar language. For these items, we generally cannot fulfill them same day or next day and will generally ship them to you using Standard Shipping.
How is the shipping cost calculated?
We have recently moved to flat rate shipping for most orders based on the weight of the item(s).
To determine shipping cost, we first determine how many items are in an order and then calculate the total weight of the order. We then apply a flat rate to ship that order.
For Standard shipping, the following flat rates apply:
$5.99 flat rate for orders with total weight up to 10 lbs
$8.99 flat rate for orders with total weight between 10 - 15 lbs
$13.99 flat rate for orders with total weight between 15 - 20 lbs
$21.99 flat rate for orders with total weight between 20 - 30 lbs
$26.99 flat rate for orders with total weight between 30 - 70 lbs
Items over 70 lbs or other items that are otherwise considered to be over-sized or that require special handling may be shipped via an alternative carrier or a trucking company as freight. If this is required, an additional shipping cost will apply and will be calculated as part of the checkout process.
For Priority shipping, the following flat rates apply:
$14.99 flat rate for orders with total weight up to 10 lbs
$16.99 flat rate for orders with total weight between 10 - 15 lbs
$23.99 flat rate for orders with total weight between 15 - 20 lbs
$29.99 flat rate for orders with total weight between 20 - 30 lbs
$36.99 flat rate for orders with total weight between 30 - 70 lbs
Items over 70 lbs or other items that are otherwise considered to be over-sized or that require special handling may be shipped via an alternative carrier or a trucking company as freight. These orders cannot be shipped using Priority shipping.
For Express shipping, the following flat rates apply:
$17.99 flat rate on orders with total weight up to 10 lbs
$22.99 flat rate for orders with total weight between 10 - 15 lbs
$28.99 flat rate for orders with total weight between 15 - 20 lbs
$36.99 flat rate for orders with total weight between 20 - 30 lbs
$42.99 flat rate for orders with total weight between 30 - 70 lbs
Items over 70 lbs or other items that are otherwise considered to be over-sized or that require special handling may be shipped via an alternative carrier or a trucking company as freight. These orders cannot be shipped using Express shipping.
When Free Shipping is offered as part of a promotion, we will ship all items via Standard Shipping unless otherwise noted.
- Standard Shipping is via ground service and will be delivered by one of several carriers, including Fed Ex, the US Postal Service or UPS among others. We will determine which carrier will be used to ship your package at the time of actual shipment and you will be able to track the package using links from the My Account pages on the website and the carrier’s website as indicated on your shipping confirmation email.
- Note that certain larger and heavier weight packages (typically greater than 70 pounds) may be sent via a freight carrier or other special service. Freight carrier items are delivered by truck and may require a scheduled delivery.
- Total shipping fees are shown in your shopping cart.
- We do not currently ship to Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, or any Canadian or International addresses.
- We do not deliver to P.O. boxes or military (APO, FPO, PSC) boxes.
- We do not deliver to penitentiaries.
- Occasionally packages are returned to us as undeliverable (see explanation below). When the carrier returns an undeliverable package to us, we will cancel the order and refund the purchase price less the shipping charges.
- We are unable to re-ship orders that are returned to us as undeliverable. If you would still like to purchase items that we were not able to deliver, please place a new order on our website with a deliverable address.
- If you suspect your order cannot be delivered as addressed and you have not received confirmation of its return or refund after 4 weeks from the estimated delivery date, please Contact Us.
Our carriers may deem a package undeliverable for one of the following reasons
- Incorrect Address. If the address is incorrect or outdated, the carrier or the unintended recipient usually returns the package to us. Please double-check your address carefully when placing a new order.
- Failed Delivery Attempts. Most of our carriers make three attempts to deliver a package. If the driver believes it is best to obtain a signature but no one is present to accept the delivery, after three attempts, the package will be returned to us. Orders shipped by freight carrier may have other conditions.
- Refused by Recipient. If a gift recipient is not expecting a gift, the recipient may refuse the package if they believe it was sent in error. If you want to send a gift, we strongly suggest that you let the recipient know that a gift is on the way.
Orders Requiring Multiple Shipments
If you order multiple items in one orders and one or more of the items will need to be shipped using special handling or from a different warehouse, you will receive multiple shipments, each with only part of your order. When this happens, we cannot split the order and ship one part using expedited delivery (Express or Priority services) and we will ship the entire order using Standard shipping. These multiple shipments will likely be shipped on different days and the shipping estimate that will be stated in your checkout will pertain to the time period from when the item is shipped to when you should typically receive it. You will receive separate shipping confirmation emails for each part of your order and separate tracking numbers for each shipment.
To avoid delay in receiving your items, if you notice that one of your items will not be shipping the same or next day, we suggest that you enter a separate order for that item. The other items in your order can then be shipped with Express or Priority shipping and the delayed item will come to you via Standard shipping.

How can I track my order as it is shipped?
To see your order status or tracking information, click "My Account" at the top of any page. Log in with your email address and password. This will take you to the "My Account" page. Click the "Order History" tab which will list the orders you have placed.

Will you match competitors' prices?
Yes, we will match prices charged by other major websites or competitors for regularly priced merchandise provided it is identical in brand, style, and color. Price matching is subject to verification and approval. Some reasons why we may not match a competitor's price:
- The competitor's product is not an exact match (identical in brand, style and color) with ours.
- The competitor's total price (including shipping, handling, rebates, membership fees, taxes, etc.) is higher.
- The competitor with the lower price does not have the item in stock.
- The competitor's product is refurbished, reconditioned, or a floor model.
- The product is a closeout or clearance item (at our store or our competitor's store).
- The competitor is not authorized by the manufacturer.
To receive a price match, please contact Customer Service
Bulk Orders & Discounts
Can I receive a discount for a large or bulk order?
We do not offer additional discounts on large orders of a single product or on large orders of many individual products on-line. However, you may contact your nearest store location, which may offer a discount on bulk orders. Also, please note that orders placed for a large quantity of an individual item may take longer to ship.
Will you adjust price if an item goes on sale right after I buy it?
We work hard to offer you everyday low prices and value on every item. If an item goes on sale after an order has been submitted, adjustments cannot be made to that order. Please note that prices may vary between BurlingtonCoatFactory.com and BabyDepot.com and the Burlington Coat Factory and Baby Depot stores. To notify us of pricing issues, please click here

Gift Notes & Wrapping
Do you offer the ability to include a gift note with an order and can it be gift wrapped?

You will be asked if you want to do this as you go through the checkout process, and will then be prompted to enter your message. This message will appear as text on the packing slip that is sent with each order.
Baby Registry Questions
Why should I create a Baby Registry? How far in advance should it be created?
Preparing to welcome a new addition to the family is an exciting time, but it can also be very busy and hectic as well. With so much to manage, it's good to know that a Baby Depot Registry is a great way to organize and keep track of everything you will need for your newest family member. It will also make it easier for your family and friends to share in this exciting time.
You can start your registry whenever you like, but we suggest that you create it at least 5-6 months prior to your expected due date. That will give you plenty of time to plan for this big event.
How do I create a Baby Registry"
It’s easy to create a Baby Depot Registry and tailor it to your own wants and needs. You can start a registry on-line at any time (just click here to get started) and follow our three step process from our Baby Registry Home Page.
Step 1: Create A Registry: Click the Create a Registry section and complete the information on the form that is provided. We ask that you share some information about your upcoming event as well as some information about you so that we can help you manage your registry easily. Once completed, you will have a chance to review and modify any information before you save it. Then, your registry is ready to go!
Step 2: Add Products: Now, it’s time to have fun. As soon as you finish the set-up, you will come to our Welcome page. Here you can see some great product suggestions, use our checklist and review other useful tips to help you decide just what you want for your new baby, or you can just start exploring the site. Whenever you see an item you want, you can just click on the Add to Registry link that you see on the product page and it will be automatically added to your
Registry. Best of all, you can come back and add or make changes to your registry at any time in the future online or in any of our stores.
How long will a Registry remain active at Baby Depot?
A Registry will remain active in our system for 18 months after the expected arrival date of your baby. This way you can plan ahead now and keep track of new products you will need over time. After all, newborns grow so fast and their needs will change.
Can the registry be listed in two last names?
Yes, each registry allows up to two “Registrants” to be named. The first registrant will be considered the primary registrant and will be able to access and update the registry (select items to add/delete from registry, set-up shipping information, send emails, etc.). The second registrant will have view only access, but will be able (if authorized by both the primary registrant and themselves) to receive update emails regarding the registry. The last names do not need to match for Registrant 1 and 2, and when someone comes on-line or into our stores to look-up your registry, both names will be presented.
How do I let people know that I have a registry open at Baby Depot?
Once you have created a registry and added products to it, you will be provided with the opportunity to “Share” your registry with family and friends. This can be done from the My Registry section of the site which can be reached once you log in. To log in, just click any Baby Registry link at the top of any page or the Baby Depot promotional tiles on the home page for Baby Depot.
Sharing options include posting a registry announcement to Facebook, Twitter or Google + accounts, as well as sending emails to a contact list. The choice is yours and it’s easy. Also, we have an option for you to print out Registry Announcement cards from the registry if you prefer this option. Just give each person you want to notify a card and add your name, your expected arrival date and the registry # and its ready to put in the mail!
Can I go to the Baby Depot/Burlington Coat Factory store and add items or make changes to a Baby Registry that I have opened on-line?
ABSOLUTELY! You can open a registry in-store or on-line and make changes wherever you please. Just know that not all items in a store will be available on-line and vice versa. Items which are available only in-store will be noted that way on the website so your family and friends won’t be confused.
To manage a Baby Registry on-line: Just go to the Baby Registry home page and click “Update Your Registry.” Sign in (with your email and password) and you will be able to review your information and product selections. Then, feel free to make any updates or modifications. Remember to save your changes when you are done and your registry will automatically update.
To manage a Baby Registry in any store: You can make the same changes to a Registry in any store from our kiosk/terminal in the Baby Depot department. And, if you want to shop around to add products to your registry, that’s easy too. A store associate will be happy to assist you.
It is always a good idea to regularly check your registry to be sure it is up-to-date. Some gift purchasers may forget to inform us that they are buying an item from a registry or you may sometimes receive gifts purchased elsewhere. An updated registry will ensure that you receive just what you want and will avoid confusion or duplicate purchases.
Can family and friends shop from my registry in any store?
Yes. Once you have created your registry, it is available on-line and in our stores. A sales associate will be happy to assist your family and friends who visit any of our stores. Should they wish to purchase any item on your registry that is not carried in that particular store, it can be purchased on the kiosk/terminal and shipped to you.
How do I find a Baby Registry?

If the search returns no possible matches, just try to re-enter the information (and check spelling, too!). Or, it may be that the registry has not been set up yet.

You can also always have the products you purchase from the registry sent to your home or another address. This information will be requested when you Checkout and complete your purchase.
