Didn’t get exactly what you wanted during the holidays? Well, good news: you still have a chance at getting the gift you really hoped for. That’s because a number of retailers are offering return policies so you can exchange unwanted gifts for something a little more to your liking. Many have extended their return period as well, so there’s no need to worry about rushing out to get a refund before the new year.
For your convenience, we’ve collected the current return policies for a number of major retailers below, highlighting which will give you a little more time to make that refund.
Returns: Items shipped by Amazon between October 11th and December 25th can be returned for free until January 31st, 2023. Note that this policy applies to both Prime and non-Prime buyers.
Returns: Most products purchased online through the Apple Store and received between November 4th and December 25th can be returned through January 8th, 2023. Please note that this only applies to items that were purchased directly from Apple or an Apple retail store. Otherwise, you need to follow the specific retailer’s policy.
