Updated Store Return Policies
Now that the Christmas holiday is behind us and we are into 2020, check out what has changed before you hit the return line.
It's time to think about great sales and returning the stuff that doesn't fit or isn't even fit to re-gift. According to consumerworld.org most retailers return policies haven't changed much from last year but a few have made some adjustments...
- Kohl's eliminated its longstanding no return deadline policy in favor of requiring most returns in 180 days.
- Bed, Bath & Beyond reduced its return period again, this time to 180 days. Just last year it replaced its no-time-limit return policy with a one-year deadline. In addition, this year electric items must now be returned in 90 days instead of a year.
- Walmart cut the return window for TVs from 90 days to just 30. However it increased the return period for other electronics from 15 to 30 days.
- Best Buy now excludes major appliances from its extended holiday return period and no longer provides 15 to 30 extra return days for those items for elite members.
