Holiday return information

For your convenience, we’ve listed the return information policies for popular retailers. Do make note of the exceptions on their Return Policy pages, however. Some categories of products (like cell phones) have much shorter windows for returns, regardless of the holiday shopping period.

Amazon - “You may return most new, unopened items sold and fulfilled by Amazon within 30 days of delivery for a full refund. During the holidays, items shipped by Amazon between November 1st and December 31st can be returned until January 31st.”

Best Buy - “Almost every purchase made throughout November and December can be returned through January 14, 2018.” 

B&H - “As a courtesy during the busy holiday season, we have extended our usual 30-day limit on returns and exchanges. Purchases made between November 1, 2017 and January 1, 2018 may be returned or exchanged through February 1, 2018 (or 30 days from date of purchase, whichever is longer). All other standard return policy conditions apply.”

BuyDig - No obvious holiday return policy. Items can be returned for any reason within 45 days, provided they meet the specific criteria listed in BuyDig’s return policy.
