Firearms, ammunition, and food are not returnable or refundable, but items other than these are eligible for refund, credit, or replacement as long as you follow the website’s return protocol. Products must be returned in original packaging or they are subject to a restocking fee.

Surprisingly, you do not need any special licenses to purchase items including guns from their website.  However, buyers must be at least 21 years of age and willing to provide waivers and age statements when purchasing products such as ammunition.

I would buy from them again
September 23, 2022

I bought two items from them and they were shipped in less than a day and came before the due date. No one else had these products in stock. I think that justified a bit higher cost.

When I received the products I realized they were not compatible. This was my fault. I didn't know Daniel Defense lowers had a different grip.

I called them and they answered the phone quickly. They sent me a return label and refunded my money.

I myself would buy from them again. Thanks

Misleading Company Name
July 3, 2022

Buyer beware, the name is def misleading. Do your research first. Ammo is outrageous compared to other companies.

Magpul clips are $19.95 here compared to $14.95 other places. Company is a rip off!! False name, def not cheaper. Order wasn't even processed yet and wouldn't cancel my ammo.

What customer service they have as well, won't even give me a veterans discount. True joke.

Better people to buy from with more integrity
January 23, 2021

They have fast delivery and good products, but they ripped me off. I bought the Springfield SAINT Victor Pistols with SB Tactical. After purchasing from Cheaper than Dirt numerous times before, I thought they had good prices. I was wrong. The retail of the gun I bought from the manufacturer is $1,125 MSRP.

Cheaper than Dirt charged me $2,000 with no option to return item. I was naive and taken advantage of. I spoke with their customer support, and he bragged about having 7 warehouses. In addition, they are enjoying the higher demand for their products right now.

He called it a market economy and they are taking advantage of it and those who buy from them. There are better people to buy from with more integrity in this world.

Magazine Policy punishes Coloradans
February 18, 2020
I live in Colorado. Colorado limits the sale of magazines with a capacity greater than 15 rounds. Many of us are trying to get this changed. Cheaper than Dirt for no reason other than "their policy" limits the capacity to 8 rounds for residents of Colorado making our situation worse. This is hardly a 2nd Amendment friendly policy.

Rude customer service
November 10, 2013

My husband really wanted a gun case that was in his cheaper than dirt magazine. I pretended not to notice and ordered it for Christmas. I thought he would never guess and was sure it would be a surprise. I filled out my billing information as I do on all online sites I order from. I do most of my shopping online.

Everything seemed to go through fine, on Sunday the phone rings and my husband answers it, the woman on the phone tells him she's from cheaper than dirt and needed to confirm our billing information for an order I placed. When I got on the phone I told her it was a Christmas surprise and asked what was wrong with the billing information I had submitted online? She said they don't process any orders until they call you and confirm your billing information.

I think they should have this information on their website when you order! ! Especially being being close to Christmas. She was very rude and told me no one else ever cares when they call like that. I only tried to explain to her that they should post this on their website. She wasn't hearing it and instead of being nice and saying " sorry, I will suggest that to management" all she can do is get an attitude and tell me no one else cares.

That was the first and last time I order from them. Good customer service is everything.
