If you purchased an LWW product from a retail location (school bookstore, Amazon, etc.) and not directly through us, you must contact that retailer to process your return/refund.


You may return your book within 30 days for a full refund. Please note your book will be ineligible for return if any access code has been scratched off (activated or not). Please follow the physical return instructions below.

For physical product returns, please follow these three easy steps:

  2. Please include the invoice/packing slip for the products you are returning inside the package. This will allow us to easily locate your account and the order you are returning. You can print your invoice here. If you do not have your invoice and you are unable to print it, please include the name associated with the order, the complete shipping address and a contact phone number so we can properly credit your account.
