It might be the thought that counts, but you can keep the thought and still return the Santa brought you that you don’t like or need . Trust me, you won’t be the only one. If you’re like me, you’re probably itching to get to the store with (or without) the receipts and return the unwanted gifts. The most important thing to know before you get in line at the stores is the exact return policy. It’s going to save you time and quite possibly a hassle.
To get you started, here are the holiday return policies for a few of the biggest retailers.
Bed Bath and Beyond
Michael’s Craft Store
Barnes and Noble
And it also helps to know if there are any policies that impose a restocking fee for opened items, so to be on the safe side, if you so much as think that you might want to return it – don’t open it!
Most retailers will have extra customer service staff on hand on the day after Christmas, but make no mistake about it — you’ll still going to be standing in long lines to make your returns. Now that you’re armed with the return policies, you can wait a few days – or even a few months depending on the store – to make that return.
So tell me, do you have any returns this year?
