Description of products

Each Product purchased is sold subject to its Product Description which sets out additional Specific Conditions related to that Product including, without limitation, terms and conditions concerning estimated delivery dates and times, warranties, after-sales service and guarantees.

We will take all reasonable care to ensure that all details, descriptions and prices of Products appearing on the Website are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system. Although we aim to keep the Website as up to date as possible, the information including Product Descriptions appearing on this Website at a particular time may not always reflect the position exactly at the moment you place an order.

Alcoholic merchandise

johnlewis.com may sell products containing intoxicating liquor. For clarity a drink containing alcohol is classified as intoxicating if it contains more than 0.5% of alcohol by volume (0.5% abv). Vintages, labels and closures may vary. All wines are 75cl and all spirits and liquors 70cl unless otherwise stated.

Under the Licensing Act 2003 it is an offence to purchase or attempt to purchase alcoholic liquor if you are under the age of 18, or liqueur chocolates if you are under the age of 16.

johnlewis.com is committed to upholding both their legal and social obligations as a retailer of intoxicating liquor. To achieve this we have a number of control checks throughout the purchase and physical distribution process (e.g. requesting your date of birth when the order is placed).

In accepting these Conditions you agree to provide johnlewis.com truthful and accurate information and act in accordance with the Licensing Act of 2003.

Ordering, cancelling and returning products


We will take all reasonable care, in so far as it is in our power to do so, to keep the details of your order and payment secure, but in the absence of negligence on our part we cannot be held liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorised access to any data you provide when accessing or ordering from the Website.

  • If the product is being delivered direct to you from a supplier, for instance in the case of larger products such as electrical appliances and furniture, you may be charged at any point between confirmation of your order and despatch. The exact timing of this will vary according to supplier and the product you're ordering

Non-acceptance of an order may be a result of one of the following:

  • The product you ordered being unavailable from stock
  • Our inability to obtain authorisation for your payment

  • You are entitled to cancel your contract if you so wish, provided that you exercise your right no longer than 14 days after the day on which you receive the goods or services.
  • Your right to return or cancel products does not apply to goods that are made to measure or are made to your specification, that have been clearly personalised or which by reason of their nature cannot be returned or are liable to deteriorate or expire rapidly. This doesn't affect your statutory rights if goods are faulty or not as described.
  • If you wish to exercise your right of cancellation, you are obliged to retain possession of the goods and take reasonable care of them.
  • To exercise the right to cancel, you must inform us of your decision to cancel your contract by a clear statement, including details of your name, geographical address, details of the order you wish to cancel and, where available, your phone number and email address.

This includes the cost of delivery (except for the supplementary costs arising if you choose a type of delivery other than our standard and least expensive method of delivery).
  • We may make a deduction from the reimbursement for loss in value of any goods supplied, if the loss is the result of unnecessary handling by you. We will make the reimbursement no later than 14 days after the day we receive back from you any goods supplied.

Guarantees and accidental damage insurance

Until June 2014, we offered John Lewis Service Plans, which took part of the payment that you made to purchase Accidental Damage insurance on your behalf with London General Insurance Company Ltd. Read more about making a claim under a Service Plan.

From 14 June 2014, accidental damage insurance is available for small appliances, technology and TVs via Added Care. Read more about Added Care including full terms and conditions.

Guarantees for large domestic appliances and consumer electronics products

We always honour the manufacturer's guarantee period where offered; these are usually one year unless otherwise stated. Please see individual product pages for details.

In addition to the first year manufacturer's guarantee on all electrical and technology products we provide a second year service guarantee at no extra cost, and it's 5 years on all TVs. We also include a 2-year guarantee on all lighting, except Christmas, solar-powered and nursery lighting.

What does the guarantee cover?

Our guarantees provide full cover against mechanical breakdown through normal use. This means that if your item develops a fault during the guarantee period, we'll arrange for it to be repaired free of charge, including all parts and labour. Your guarantee is transferable with ownership, so if you give or sell the item to someone during the guarantee period, it's still covered.

Large domestic appliances include the following ranges of products: washing machines, tumble dryers, washer dryers, dishwashers, fridges, freezers, fridge freezers and cookers (excluding microwaves).

How does it work?

During the guarantee period, if your product develops a fault that needs to be repaired, look for visible signs of the breakdown and consult the fault-finding guide in the manufacturer's handbook, if any.

If that doesn't resolve the issue, please contact your local John Lewis shop and talk to one of our Partners. You'll need to provide us with details of your item, including the model number and date of purchase. You'll find all of this information on our original receipt – this acts as your guarantee, so please make sure you keep it safe.

If we can't repair your item, we'll replace it with an item of equivalent specification (or if you have an electrical lighting product, we may supply spare parts instead). If no equivalent product is available, we'll either ​offer you the nearest equivalent specification or its selling price value​, and we'll always do our best to make sure you're satisfied with the outcome.

What's not included?

There are some specific exclusions from our guarantees, as follows:

  • Repair costs caused by external factors such as computer viruses, faulty software, fire, theft, and weather (including lightning damage)
  • Accidental damage, for example if your item has been dropped. You may find that this type of damage is covered by your household contents insurance policy
  • Image ghosting or screen burn. These can appear on a screen that's left operating for a prolonged period with either a still image or a channel constantly displaying a logo
  • Pixel spots. These are tiny dark or bright spots that may become visible on a screen
  • Digital television picture affected by any of the following: a misaligned or unsuitable aerial, climatic conditions, geographic location, poor quality or low strength broadcast signal
  • Consumables such as batteries, ink cartridges, storage media, rear projection television bulbs, fuses, light bulbs etc
  • Battery-operated toys
  • Nursery, solar-powered and Christmas lighting
  • If the product has been used commercially or for business purposes (with the exception of computers)
  • Data loss
  • Cosmetic damage such as cabinet trim, scratches, dents, corrosion or colour where the function of the product is unaffected
  • Unblocking drainage channels in refrigeration equipment
  • Frozen food loss as a result of the product breaking down
  • Any loss suffered as a result of not being able to use the product, or any loss over and above the purchase price of the original item
  • Servicing, inspecting or cleaning of the product; and failure to follow the manufacturer's instructions and/or installation guidelines
  • Deliberate damage or neglect of the product
  • Please note that our guarantees provide services for goods bought and used in the UK, the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands

Disposal of electrical products and WEEE regulations

WEEE compliance

John Lewis is a producer of Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE) and is therefore obligated under the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations. We are fully compliant with all responsibilities as a registered member of a UK government approved WEEE Compliance Scheme, Comply Direct. Our WEEE producer registration number is WEE/DC0065TW.

The UK WEEE Regulations were first introduced in 2007 with the aim of reducing the amount of EEE ending up in landfill. As per the requirements of the Regulations, we finance the recovery and recycling of WEEE when it reaches the end of its life and ensure our EEE products are marked accordingly with a crossed out wheeled bin symbol and a date mark. We also provide information on reuse and environmentally sound treatment of the products.
