    How can Kohl’s and Costco (and others) put no deadline on their returns? I just don’t see how that can be economically feasable in this day and age.

    What if I buy a plasma TV at Costco and try to return it two years from now? Will the give me all my money back?

    Don’t get me wrong, I ain’t complaining. I just don’t see how they can justify doing that internally.

    Well I’m sure if it wasn’t broken you’re not going to keep your receipt for two years…and it’s probably limited to the warranty period of the item. For example, if your TV has a 1 year manufacturers warranty, they’ll probably stick take it back 364 days after you bought it. Costco rocks, i’ll have to try Kohls when I go back home for the holidays.

    Just an added point to the return policies above you say 90 days from purchase with target and wal mart and you show the dates they will accept returns with others, but a key thing forgotten is that most of these places need a receipt, I can’t tell you how often I get somebody who tries to return an item without a reciept and then yells at me for saying “the only way to return an item without a receipt or the original tender used to purchase the item(i.e. debit/credit card, check, gift card) is with a valid form of Federal ID which you can do for two items in a 12 month period.
