Changes to Gift Return Policies





Looking to return or exchange some of the holiday gifts you received this year?

Read on to find out the best way to successfully return items at some of the most popular stores in the country.

Returning a holiday gift? Here are some helpful tips

Play Video – 3:22

It may seem obvious, but many people forget this step!

If you’re giving a gift, make sure to provide a gift receipt. If you’re the gift recipient, stash that receipt away somewhere safe until you decide on whether or not you want to keep the item. While some retailers may give you store credit if you show up with no receipt, most retailers will require proof of purchase if you’re looking to get cash back.

2. DO keep the item’s original packaging

Rushing to open your gift can be exciting, but if you accidentally damage the box or plastic wrapping that your item came in, you jeopardize your chances of getting a full return. Some stores offer store credit, but will charge you a re-stocking fee if the original packaging is missing or damaged. Others will charge you a small fee if you try to return an item with a dirty or missing user’s manual.

3. DON’T return used items

Having second thoughts about a pair of boots you’ve already worn once? Used or worn items are usually non-refundable, unless the product is defective in some way. A few stores like Nordstrom and Sephora have a more lenient policy, but in general,you won’t get a full refund if your item is used or previously worn.


4. DO be prepared to have proof of identity

In an effort to prevent retail fraud, a number of retailers are relying on refund verification systems to keep track of customers’ spending and return habits.

This means they’ll ask you for a government-issued ID every time you make a return and will keep track of your activity. Some stores, like Walmart, will allow you to make a maximum of three returns (without a receipt) in 45 days. If you try to make a fourth in that time span, they reserve the right to ban you from making any further returns. Meanwhile, has been known to suspend users’ accounts if they suspect fraudulent return habits.

5. DO return electronics in a timely manner

Most stores offer a shorter, 15-day return window for electronics versus the traditional, 30-to-60-day window for clothing and other items. Although, some retailers are extending their policies just for the holidays. Apple is extending its return window to Jan. 8 and Best Buy will give until Jan. 15 to return unwanted electronics.

6. DO know which retailers are the most lenient

Most retailers have a time-sensitive return policy, but a handful of popular retailers will accept returns no matter how much time has passed. It’s true!

Nordstrom is so liberal with their return policy that you can return gifts and purchases at any point for money back or store credit. At Costco, you can return most items (except some types of electronics) whenever you wish. There are also no time limits on returns at Bed, Bath & Beyond unless you purchase mattresses.

But do note: If you don’t have the original packaging, proof of purchase or receipt, Bed, Bath and Beyond policy states that you’ll lose 20 percent of the original selling price.

7. DON’T make returns during peak times

Instead of going to the stores the day after Christmas, hold off a day or two. Not only will you be in a less hectic shopping environment, but chances are your salesperson will be less crazed, too. He or she might be more willing to help out if you’re trying to make a more complicated return.

8. DO practice kindness

Be nice and smile! Store clerks are facing busy times and tough customers this time of year. If you’re extra gracious, they’ll be more likely to go out of their way to help you. And why not keep the holiday spirit going!

Important Information

Concerning Your Top Load Washer

Updated – Sept. 27 2016

Consumer Notice

We are in active discussions with the CPSC to address potential safety issues related to certain top-load washing machines manufactured between March 2011 and April 2016. In rare cases, affected units may experience abnormal vibrations that could pose a risk of personal injury or property damage when washing bedding, bulky or water-resistant items.

Samsung is recommending that consumers with affected models use the lower speed delicate cycle when washing bedding, bulky or water-resistant materials. There have been no reported incidents when using this cycle. It is important to note that Samsung customers have completed hundreds of millions of loads without incident since 2011.

CPSC and Samsung are working on a remedy for affected consumers that will help ensure there are no further incidents. We will provide updated information to the public as soon as possible on this website.

Affected Models

This notice only applies to certain Top Load Washers manufactured before April 18, 2016. Front Load Washers are not affected.

New Jersey Firm Recalls Breaded Chicken Product For Possible Listeria Contamination

Class I Recall 055-2014
Health Risk: High Aug 27, 2014

WASHINGTON, August 27, 2014 – TNUVA USA, a Fairfield, N.J., establishment is recalling approximately 8,316 pounds of Mom’s Chicken Extra Thin Cutlets product due to possible contamination with Listeria monocytogenes (Lm), the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.

The product was produced on August 18, 2013, and shipped to the company’s distributor in New Jersey. FSIS will post complete store locations as the list becomes available on its website at The following product is subject to recall: [View Labels (PDF Only)]


Bags bear the Israeli establishment number “209” within the Israeli mark of inspection. The product’s expiration date is February 18, 2015, and bears the following UPC number on the packaging: 843426005866.

The problem was discovered when FSIS personnel conducted a routine sampling of product which tested positive for Lm.  FSIS held the product and it did not enter commerce. Further investigation by FSIS determined that other products were produced on the same line without clean up between products. FSIS and the company are concerned that some product may be frozen and in consumers’ freezers. FSIS and the company have received no reports of illnesses associated with consumption of these products

Consumption of food contaminated with Lm can cause listeriosis, a serious infection that primarily affects older adults, persons with weakened immune systems, and pregnant women and their newborns. Less commonly, persons outside these risk groups are affected.
