Whether you’re shopping for yourself or someone else, knowing a store’s return policy is important if you want to be a savvy shopper. You never know if the shirt you bought on a whim is going to fit funny, or if your mom won’t like her birthday gift this year.  In any case, the last thing you want is to lose out on getting a refund simply because you weren’t aware of the store’s return policy.

Many stores have excellent policies that are intended to make sure customers are 100% satisfied with their purchase and experience. Other stores, however, may not have as flexible a policy, and it could cause you to lose out.  Check out these 10 stores that have the best return policies, so you can be sure you’ll have the best shopping experience possible even if you end up making a return!


Nordstrom wants you to be completely happy with your purchase, so they don’t put a time limit on returns or exchanges. They also allow returns without receipts for store credit.

The store reserves the right to refuse returns on a case-by-case basis, but any customer will tell you their return policy is one of the best around. Use this coupon to receive free shipping on any online orders.


Another reason to love Costco (besides their free samples) is their 100 percent satisfaction guarantee policy. If you’re not happy with your purchase, you can expect to get a full refund, even without the receipt. Some items must be returned within 90 days, such as electronics. Otherwise, Costco is known to make returns even after months have passed.


Target is known for having a great return policy, albeit confusing at times. They have different policies for different items. All Target brand items can be returned with receipt within a year. Other items can be returned within 90 days so long as they are in new conditions.  Electronics can only be returned within 30 days.

Currently, you can receive 20% off Women’s fashion accessories and footwear with this code from Promocodes.com.  Enter this code to receive a $40 gift card when you spend $150 or more on home sale items. 


Like many department stores, Macy’s goes out of its way to ensure customers are happy with their purchases. The store offers up to 180 to make a return. That being said, some items must be returned within 30 days, including electronics. Don’t have a receipt? Don’t worry! Macy’s will still offer you store credit.

Bath & Body Works

Who doesn’t love a sweetly scented candle? Well, in the odd chance that you’re not completely happy with your Bath & Body Works purchase, their 100 percent satisfaction guarantee will make sure you get a full refund. Even if you don’t have a receipt, you’ll be refunded the lowest selling price for the item. Use this coupon to get 20% off sitewide.

L.L.  Bean

Similar to Nordstrom,  L.L. Bean doesn’t put a time limit on returns. Rather, their policy commits itself to returning any item that doesn’t live up to the customer experience.

The store does have the right to refuse refunds, and they say they will do so if there are missing tags, the product has been damaged through wear, or if the reason for return is unrelated to customer satisfaction. 

Bed Bath & Beyond

Bed Bath & Beyond is all about making returns easy. Full refunds are issued if you have the receipt, and store credit is given for gift receipts. If you don’t have a receipt (and it was purchased in the last year), the store will attempt to find a record of it. If they can’t, they’ll offer store credit for the item’s current selling price minus 20%. Use this coupon from Promocodes.com to receive 20% off a single item in-store or online. 


With their “No-Nonsense 365 Days to Change Your Mind” policy, Ikea will give you an entire year to make a return. This makes Ikea hands-down one of the best (and most affordable) places to purchase furniture. The only catch? Just make sure you have the receipt!


Zappos is another retailer that gives you 365 days to make a return- they’ll even pay the return shipping! That means you can shop online for clothes for the whole family without worrying about what you’ll do if they don’t fit quite right or look how they did in the picture. Online shopping has never been easier! Use this coupon to receive free shipping on your online purchase.


Bloomingdale’s allows for up to 365 days to make a return, so long as you have the receipt. Without a receipt, the store will attempt to find the purchase in your Bloomingdale account. If they cannot, you’ll be credited for the lowest selling price of the item.

These excellent return policies will ensure that you’re completely satisfied with your purchase and that you’re not wasting money on items you won’t use. Being a smart shopper starts with knowing what stores are committed to customer experience and contentment, so you can always have the best experience.
