Returns/ Exchanges


  • Destination Kona wants to make your return easy!

If you return merchandise that originally qualified for free shipping, you will be credited the purchase price less the shipping costs that were incurred on the original shipment.

While credits are transmitted from our bank on the same days they are processed, your bank may take several days to assign the credit to your account. Please allow 1 - 2 billing cycles for the credit adjustment to appear on your statement (or check your bank's policy for exact timelines).
