What is a Core Charge?

A “Core Charge” is similar to the deposit you might pay for a can or bottle of soda. In many states, to promote recycling, you are charged a deposit when you purchase a can of soda and you receive your deposit back when you return the empty can. Many automotive parts have a Core Charge, or Core Price, that works the same way as a soda can deposit.


Here’s how the Core Charge works:

  • The part you are purchasing contains a component that is recyclable
  • The Core Charge deposit is charged at the time of purchase
  • When the recyclable component from your old part is returned to us, the charge is refunded to you

To receive your Core Charge refund, you will need to do the following:

  • Mail the part back to Infiniti Parts USA, shipping pre-paid, following the directions located on our Returns page. Please see our Returns page on how to obtain a RMA (return merchandise authorization) number. All returns require a RMA number in order for any and all credits to be processed.


If you have any questions, please contact our Returns Department.
