19 Retailers That Let You Return Used Items for a Full Refund

January 27, 2017

Ever buy a new pair of shoes that seemed great in the store, but after an hour of wearing them, you realize they are horribly uncomfortable? Or maybe the lipstick you just bought looks hideous with your skin tone. Did you know some retailers will accept used items and give a full refund, no questions asked? Do not be a sleazeball about this. AKA: Be a grown-up and don’t take advantage! But you should know these 19 retailers are stellar because of their return policies alone: 1. Return the hairspray you’ve been using all week, but hate, to Sephora. It’s hard finding makeup and hair products that are right for you. Sephora lets you return gently used items for a full refund if it’s within 30 days, with a receipt. (Check out all the other Sephora Hacks we uncovered.) After that, you can exchange the item or get store credit. But, even if you don’t have your receipt, they can look it up with the debit/credit card you used or your Beauty Insider account number, and still you can get a full refund within 30 days. Amazing. 2. Get a full refund for your broken blender from Costco a year after you bought it. Costco has the. best. return policy around. Costco guarantees satisfaction on any product they sell, no time limit. For example, if your blender breaks after a year, they’ll exchange it, or give you a full refund.

Yes, that means you can return anything (except premium electronics) at any time if you have a receipt, and if you don’t, they can look up your purchase on your Kohl’s card if it’s been in the last 12 months. Without a receipt, you’ll get store credit or an exchange. AT. ANY. TIME. Freaking amazing. 4. Return a torn shirt to L.L.Bean for a full refund years later. Okay, here’s another one without time restrictions. L.L.Bean guarantees 100% satisfaction at any time. If something doesn’t last as long as you think it should, just send it back. They’ll give full refunds with a receipt, and exchanges or store credits without one. Even if your shirt gets a hole in it, they’ll agree that shouldn’t happen with their products, and they’ll send you a new one. 5. Return those leggings that sag during yoga class to Athleta. Who knew so many clothing companies stand behind their products so fiercely? Athleta’s give it a workout guarantee means you can return worn clothing for any reason, without time restrictions. Even leggings, even swim wear, even sports bras. Wow. 6. Return those uncomfortable shoes to Nordstrom. Nordstrom’s return policy is right in line with their incredible customer service.
