Picture it: It’s mid-November and you are a Smart Sally. Your Christmas shopping is nearly finished! You’ve ordered gifts online, you’ve bought gifts in stores, you’ve meticulously saved all your gift receipts in case something doesn’t fit or you’ve plain missed the mark, and you’ve even visualized your gift wrap color scheme. Smart Sally! Come December 24 you will be cool as a cucumber, no last minute jaunts to the mall for you!
But wait! Come December 26, your gift recipients may be plum out of luck if the return policy on their gift is good for only 30 days and that sweater you picked out just doesn’t fit…
Yikes! What’s a careful present planning gift-giving girl to do? Especially when gift returns can sometimes be the best part of the post-Christmas season? Let’s not leave our gift list hanging!
After the jump, I’ve compiled the return policies of 21 of our favorite national retailers. This was entirely fascinating to put together, I hope it is just as helpful to you!
