Big Box Retailer Return Policies

One of the more popular posts on this site is Costco’s incredible return policy [3] where you can basically return anything non-electronic whenever you want. It can be open and you may have lost the receipt, but they’ll take it back. It’s one of the most liberal policies and one of the reasons why we shop there (in addition to the great prices) – why worry about returns when you know you can return anything. Even the recent change, of limiting electronics to six months, didn’t dissuade us. Six months is forever!

That made us wonder – how does that compare to other retailers? A lot of folks shot at the likes of Wal-Mart, also for their low prices, so how do other big box retailers compare? Their policies weren’t as good and their list of exceptions can often be a mile long.

Check out the nifty table Brandon put together comparing Wal-Mart, K-Mart and Target. There’s 3 tabs that show more detail of each retailer’s policy.
