Frequently Asked Questions
Can I use a credit voucher in another Babycity store?
Yes, the vouchers can be used in any of our stores throughout New Zealand.
Do I have to print out the coupon when I earn it?
No, you can ask our staff to print out the coupon whenever you are ready for it. Just don't leave it too long as points do expire after 12 months, which might affect your eligibility for the coupon!
How do I know my order has gone through?
When you process your order on the payments page the page will confirm your order. You will also receive and email confirmation from Baby City that we have received your order. If you do not receive the order please check your 'junk mail' folder just in case. If you still have not received and email please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The item I’ve seen online no longer seems to be in stock?
If an item is sold out or not currently available online it will say ‘In Store Only’.
