Order Security

We want your Carsons.com shopping experience to be safe and secure. Therefore, we use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to encrypt your credit card information as it travels over the Internet. SSL is a standard technology used by many other E-Commerce websites. This means that using your credit card to place an order with Carsons.com is as safe as giving us your credit card information via telephone. Some computers may not be able to "communicate" with our secure server. If you experience any difficulty, please feel free to contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-945-4438 to place your order.

In addition to encrypting your credit card information while it travels over the Internet, for your convenience, we store your credit card information on our systems in encrypted form.

For extra protection, we will do the following for you. If you make a purchase online at Carsons.com and as a result, through no fault of your own, the credit card information is stolen and fraudulent charges are made to your account, you will not have to pay the first $50 of those fraudulent charges. Simply do the following:

  • If you use your Bergner's, Bon-Ton, Boston Store, Carson Pirie Scott, Elder-Beerman, Herberger's, or Younkers credit card, just call the number listed on your billing statement or on the back of your card to speak to a Customer Care Representative.
  • If you use any other credit card, you must first notify the issuer of your credit card in accordance with the issuer's rules about fraudulent charges. If your credit card company makes you pay any part of the first $50 of these fraudulent charges (under federal law your credit card company can only make you pay up to $50), Carsons.com will reimburse you for the amount your credit card company required you to pay, up to $50.

If you prefer to submit your order by telephone, please call us toll free at 1-800-945-4438, 6am-12am (CST) Monday -Sunday.
