Answers VBS Return Policy

In an effort to simplify and expedite the accurate processing of any necessary returns and to ensure that you receive full credit or reimbursement in a prompt and timely manner, Answers in Genesis (AiG) requires that a Return Authorization (RA) number be assigned to all returns prior to their shipment and that shipments be prepared as follows.

The RA number is mandatory before returns can be accepted and processed by AiG.

To obtain an RA number, either:

  1. Complete the RA form at Answersingenesis.org/go/returnrequest. Once submitted, this request will automatically be sent to our offices. (A representative will then contact you via email to provide an RA number or get clarification if needed.)
  2. Or, phone a Customer Service representative at 1-800-778-3390. You will need your original invoice and quantities to be returned, so please gather this information before calling.

Ship all returns in sturdy, well packed containers clearly identified with your RA number, to:

Answers in Genesis
Attn: Returns (RA#__________)
2095 Global Way
Hebron, KY 41048

For your protection, we suggest that you ship your return in a trackable manner (USPS Priority Mail or UPS). AiG cannot be responsible for items lost or damaged in transit.

General Guidelines
