Best Of Return Policies, Worst Of Return Polices

To aid you in your post-Christmas return-a-thon, WalletPop has put together a capsule list of the best and worst return policies.

This is all subjective, but the post works as a quick, informative way to let you know whether or not it’s worth braving the lines to take something back. In the post, Laura Heller says that Bed Bath & Beyond and Costco have among the most lenient holiday return polices:

Bed Bath & Beyond
The home goods retailer has a generous return policy year round, with no time limit for either in-store or online returns as long as you have a receipt. The one painful part: There’s often a long wait for service.

The warehouse club takes everything back as long as you have a receipt. Electronics are the one exception, but even the policy for those items is among the most generous in the retail industry: Shoppers have a 90-day window to return electronics and there is no restocking fee.

Heller says Best Buy, Amazon and Home Depot have some of the least forgiving policies. What are your thoughts on who has the kindest and harshest policies?
