If you have a Dowdle Traditional Jigsaw puzzle with a missing or damaged piece, we will replace it with a bag of pieces of the same puzzle. We DO NOT replace single pieces. Due to the increasing number of donated, traded, and second party puzzle sales we have been forced to tighten our policy. The "No Missing Pieces" policy is limited to only newly purchased puzzles (with proof of purchase) of current titles in stock and is limited to addresses in the USA and Canada. We DO NOT replace puzzles with a different title.
Keep in mind that the piece number is a gauge of difficulty and not a hard count of the number of tiles in the image. Thus, the only way to be sure a puzzle is complete is to finish the puzzle. Before you proceed with your claim, we ask you to complete the puzzle. We have heard of puzzle pieces sneaking off and hiding in the strangest places so do a thorough search for the missing piece. It may be:
1- Hiding in the box or on the table:
2- In pockets, folds, cuffs, and creases:
3- Under table or chair legs:
4- Under cushions:
5- Under baseboards or doors:
6- The Dog ate it, no seriously:
7- The Baby (child) ate it:
8- In a drain:
9- In floor vents:
10- In a refrigerator:
OR- Is there, by chance, in your circle of influence a demented soul that would deliberately take a puzzle tile to put in the last piece, after all your hard work.
This guarantee does not cover puzzles damaged by household accidents or events (but give us a call if there was an accident. We will see how we can help.) All requests will be processed within 30-60 business days. Please submit your request, including the following information in the lines down below:
Receipt or proof of purchase.
Image of the completed puzzle and missing spaces.
Title and piece size. (Example: Sydney, 500)
Your name and address (Available in the USA and Canada.)
