Wilfrid Laurier University has signed a contract with Corporate Express to provide us with office supplies at special prices which are lower than regular catalogue prices and often are lower than prices marked NET in the catalogue.

Returns to Corporate Express

If you want to return an item, call Corporate Express at 1-877-272-2121 and ask for the Order Desk. Tell them what you are returning and why and give them the packing slip number. They will give you a return authorization number (RA #). Corporate Express will not pick up anything without a return authorization number.

Write the RA # on the packing slip. Photocopy the packing slip and tape it to the outside of the package. Please do not return items in an inter-office envelope. Highlight the item(s) being returned, the packing slip number, your name, your department and the RA #. Send the package to Shipping.

Corporate Express will fax a copy of the return authorization to our Shipping Department. Shipping needs this information to control the flow of goods and therefore it is important for them and Corporate Express that return packages are properly labelled. We appreciate your cooperation in this matter.

Credits for Returns

When the Order Desk staff take the information from you about the item(s) you are returning, they will also arrange for a credit to appear on your next monthly Pcard statement.
