CDW offers leasing options for businesses on all of our products. To find out more, please contact Sales Support.


Special Offers

How often are the special offers on your site updated?

Special offers and pricing are updated in real time. For the latest offers, please visit our CDW  Deals page.

I saw an advertised price in an ad for CDW, but it’s a different price on your website.

Prices in the technology industry can fluctuate quickly. The prices on our website are updated in real time, but many ad campaigns are prepared ahead of time. If you see a price discrepancy, let us know and we’ll try to honor the lower price. Also, be sure to look for rebates on your product that can affect the price listing.

I just bought an item and noticed there is a rebate available. Where can I find the form?

Select the View Details option from the product information page for more information on available rebates.

You advertise a rebate, but when you click to see more information, it says it can’t be found.

This is usually caused by a rebate expiring. When this happens, we make every effort to get the listings removed from the site as soon as possible.

Why aren’t Florida and Canada residents eligible for some contests?

Restrictive laws in these areas prevent us from offering some promotions in these areas. Contact your individual locality for more information.

Where can I request a charitable donation from CDW?

At CDW, we have a strong commitment to our community and the communities of our customers. For more than sixteen years, the CDW family of coworkers have given generously to many national and local charities. If you would like to request a donation, please fill out our online donation request form.

Not finding what you need?

Tracking & Shipping

How can I get tracking numbers?

Tracking numbers are stored by order number within the Recent Orders history of your CDW account. You can also search for an Order Number by date or P.O. number.

Select an Order Number you wish to track. This will take you to the Order Details page where you can view full shipment details. Under the Product Details section, you will see your order's tracking number. By selecting a tracking number, you will be redirected to the appropriate shipping carrier site for tracking information, including proof of delivery. If you can’t find your order tracking number, or if you require further assistance, please contact Customer Relations.

Note: If you did not select “ship all items at once” when you placed your order, there may be more than one shipment and therefore more than one invoice.

How do I check my order status?

CDW's Quick Order Status tool makes it fast and easy to check the status of an order.

When will my order ship?

Once your order is placed, you can check your account's Recent Orders history to confirm the status of your order, including estimated ship date. You can search for any order from the last three years, using order number, date or P.O number. Select the Order Number you wish to track to view complete details, including current status.

I received an order confirmation. Does that mean my order will ship today?

The order confirmation is an acknowledgment that we have received your order. It does not guarantee shipment. You will receive a shipment confirmation email once your order has been successfully processed. For additional questions, please contact your account manager or Customer Relations.

Note: If you are paying for an order via check, the check will be held for up to ten days for processing before your order is released.

What is the shipping policy?

We have a highly automated and efficient inventory, shipping and delivery system along with a dedicated team to manage complex logistics movements and services. There are also a wide variety of shipping choices, including special offers and white glove deliveries. Carriers include: FedEx, UPS, DHL, USPS, CEVA, UPS Freight, Veterans Messenger Service and T-Force.

For placing international orders and inquiries, please visit our International Solutions page. Orders for shipment outside of the U.S. are subject to shipping fees, applicable customs, duties and taxes, all of which are the responsibility of the customer. Additional information on CDW’s international shipping policies can be found on our related Terms and Conditions page.

Can I use my company's shipping carrier accounts?

You may save your company’s shipping carrier accounts as part of your CDW account's Profile and Preferences. Select Shipping and in the dropdown menu, select Shipping Accounts. You can then add and fill in the required information fields. If you require additional assistance with your company’s shipping carrier accounts, please contact your account manager. If you do not have a dedicated account manager with CDW, please contact Sales Support.


Returns

How do I request a return?

To return a product, you will need to access the Recent Orders history of your CDW account. Select the Order Number for which you would like to request a return (you can also search for an order by date or P.O. number.)

You will be taken to the Order Details page. In the Product Details section, you have the option to select "Request a Return." Select the item(s) you wish to return. Please detail the reason for your request. When your return is approved you will receive an RMA number, which must be included with the returned merchandise. Your RMA number is valid for 10 business days.

Returns within 30 days from invoice date can be for exchange, replacement refund or credit at CDW’s discretion. Please be aware that specific manufacturers have more restrictive return policies and may be subject to a return fee. If the product is accepted after 30 days, credit will be issued toward future purchases only. For more information, see CDW’s full product return policy (PDF).

If you require additional assistance or have further questions, please contact your account manager. If you don’t have an account manager with us, please contact Customer Relations.

What is CDW's return policy?

CDW allows customer returns based on the policies of the original product manufacturer. Software is not returnable if the packaging has been opened. If software was distributed electronically, it is not returnable if the licenses were downloaded. Customers should contact Customer Relations to initiate a return or for additional information. Customers must notify CDW Customer Relations of any damaged products within fifteen (15) days of receipt.

For more information see CDW’s full product return policy (PDF).

How do I view the status of a return?

You can view the status of all completed or pending returns from your CDW account.

How do I cancel an order?

Orders placed on CDW.com cannot be canceled online. You will need to contact your account manager directly to update, edit or cancel an order. If you don’t have an account manager with CDW, please contact Customer Relations. Once placed, your order is processed right away. For that reason it’s possible that we've already shipped the order to you. In that case, you will need to follow the CDW return procedure. For more information, see CDW’s full product return policy (PDF).

How do I update an order?

You can select the View Cart feature from the top menu of our site in order to see your current order. Continue adding items to your cart. If we’ve already begun processing your order, you may need to create a new order. Just continue shopping and check out as usual. When you complete an order, we’ll confirm that order with you via email. You can also check the current status of an order through your CDW account.

I have a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number, how do I complete the return?

When you pack the return, the RMA number should be clearly noted on the shipping label of each box, or you may write it on the shipping box. Please do not record the RMA number on the original manufacturer’s box. The return box should contain everything from the original shipment, including the original manufacturer’s box and packing material, all accessories, UPC bar codes, manuals, etc. that came with the original shipment. If you are returning a printer, fax machine or copier, please remove all toner and ink cartridges to prevent spillage during shipping. The toners/cartridges should be packaged separately, either in another box or sealed inside a plastic bag within the return item’s box.

If you have multiple packages to return, please make photocopies of the return address that was emailed to you and tape one on each package. All boxes should be securely packed to prevent possible damage during shipping. We are not liable for damage that occurs during shipment back to us and suggest that you insure these return items in case of lost merchandise.

Some returns may be eligible for pre-paid freight by CDW.  If your return is eligible, you will receive a pre-paid freight label via email.  Print the label and use clear tape or a carrier pouch with a self-adhesive back to affix the freight label to your package.  Please remove or cover any existing freight labels on the package. You can either give the package to your regular UPS driver or drop off the package at any UPS drop off location.  If your package is over 150 pounds, CDW Customer Relations will schedule a pickup via a heavyweight carrier and will contact you with additional details.

All international duty fees must be paid by the sender. We recommend that you use one of the following carriers to help ensure your packages clear customs: UPS, Federal Express or DHL for lightweight orders.

Returns should be sent to:

CDW
Attn: Returns Dept. / RMA # ____________
220 North Milwaukee Ave.
Vernon Hills, IL 60061

For specific types of returns, including items for repair, see CDW’s full product return policy (PDF). You can also contact Customer Relations or your account manager for further information and assistance.


Billing & Invoices

How do I print an original invoice?

Original invoices are available through the Recent Orders history in your CDW account. Select the Order Number for which you would like to view your invoice (you can also search for an order by date or P.O. number.) 

Each Order Number includes an option to View Invoice. This will take you to an overview of your order's invoice list, where you can print a copy of your invoice. You can also review order details and shipping status, and read and print your order's packing list.

How do I change my billing address?

Our credit department must make any updates to the billing address you have on file. Submit a billing address change request or contact Customer Relations for further assistance. Please note that it may take up to 24 hours for the request to be processed. If you require immediate assistance, please contact your account manager.

How do I save favorite billing, shipping and payment preferences?

When you are ready to check out, you can edit, select and save your preferred shipping address, billing information and payment preferences from the checkout page while completing your most recent order or purchase. Select the checkboxes that correspond to your preferred information to set your defaults moving forward. If you just need to change your shipping address, you can do so from your CDW account's Profile and Preferences.

How do I establish credit terms for my business?

CDW offers Net 30 days terms to government agencies, schools and qualified businesses. Please contact your account manager for details. If you do not have a dedicated account manager, please contact Sales Support to create an account. We do not offer credit terms to individuals.

Attention: International Prepay

Do you accept cashier’s checks?

Cashier’s checks are accepted for amounts up to $24,999.00. Please plan to pick up your order during regular banking hours as CDW will need to call the issuing bank for approval of the check.

My company does not use purchase orders. Can I reference the date as my purchase order number?

If your company does not use hard copy purchase orders, please verify with your account manager that your account is authorized for verbal PO and that your name is on the approved list of people authorized to make purchases for your company using verbal PO.

I set up my order under my personal account, but I would like to pay with a company check instead.

The account must be set up with the same information that is on the check. In this case, an account would need to be created with the business information to be billed out. All checks received at CDW Will Call will be approved through our check approval system.

Note: If the order is billed out under the wrong account and there is a product return, the refund check will be cut according to the information listed on the account.

I am tax exempt. What proof of tax exemption do I need to bring with me to pick up my order?

The purchase must be made with a company-issued form of payment on the CDW company account. In all instances listed below, tax can be taken off at the time of purchase when the fully completed form (including date and signature) is submitted and the account will be labeled “EXEMPT” by the tax department. The purchaser name on the certificate must match the purchaser name on the account.

Common types of Illinois exemptions include:

Resale Exemption (IL Certificate of Resale Form CRT-61)

Equipment Exemption (IL Equipment Exemption Certificate Form ST-    587)

Government/Education/Non-Profit Organizations: You must present a copy of the Illinois Tax Exempt Certificate with the Illinois tax I.D. number listed on it. Tax-exempt numbers will start with an E. The certificate must have a valid expiration date. If the expiration date is prior to the purchase date, the tax exemption cannot be honored.

How do I get a copy of my packing list?

You may request a copy of your packing list for any product shipments, which is available as a PDF attachment or as a link within the email response. Go to your CDW account's Recent Orders history and select the corresponding Order Number for complete details.

From the Packing List tab, you can check the packing list(s) you would like to receive and whether you would like to receive the list(s) as a downloadable PDF or email and then submit your completed request.

Note: The email response link may only be viewed by the person requesting the packing list.

Why is sales tax charged?

CDW is required to collect sales/use tax on all taxable goods and services we sell and required to self-assess and pay sales/use tax on all taxable purchases. This can be an administrative burden for many customers. CDW simplifies and reduces this tax burden by collecting and remitting sales/use tax on behalf of its customers. If you are exempt from sales tax, please file a tax exemption form and submit it to CDW at the time of purchase. The seller name should be listed as “CDW” and the description of purchase is listed as “technology products and services.”

For any questions, please contact your account manager. If you do not have an account manager with us, please contact Customer Relations.


Will Call

Do you have a pickup location?

CDW Will Call has two pick-up locations in Las Vegas, Nevada, and in Vernon Hills, Illinois. Both locations offer repair services and accept local returns as well. Please visit our CDW Locations page for hours of operation and directions.

What do I need to bring with me to Will Call?

For will call orders placed through the website using a credit card as the payment method, the cardholder must present their credit card and driver’s license at pick up. The 800 number provided on the back of the credit card will be called to confirm that the person in the store is authorized to use the credit card. For will call orders, the credit card is not charged until the product is picked up.

If the cardholder cannot be present, the person picking up the order must present the credit card and cardholder’s driver license as fraud protection for both the cardholder and CDW.

A cardholder and the card itself must be present at the time of purchase. Credit card numbers alone will not be accepted for picking up an order.

I need to return a product, but I don’t have a Return Merchandise Authorization number. Can I come to CDW Will Call and have the return number processed there?

While we can process customer returns at CDW Will Call, it is much more efficient when you come in with a pre-approved RMA. To obtain an RMA number, please contact your account manager. If you do not have an account manager with us, please contact Customer Relations. You may also request an RMA number through our website.

I sent a copy of the purchase order to my account manager. Do I still need to bring a copy with me for pick up?

Please make sure to confirm with your account manager that the purchase order was received and saved into our system. This will ensure your order is processed in a timely manner.

Not finding what you need?

Customer Relations can assist with recent orders, including status, cancellations, edits, updates and returns.

Where can I find serial numbers for products I have purchased?
