Sometimes buying gifts for someone can have a good or bad outcome, but if you weren’t too happy with your gift, more than likely you’ll be here at the mall or another retail store.
According to a recent survey from Oracle, 77 percent of consumers said they plan to return a portion of their gifts, with nearly 20 percent expecting to return more than half of their presents.
According to a survey worldwide, Generation Z plans to return the most presents this year.
If you plan on heading out to stores to return items, here are some things to be aware of because every store has its own exchange and return policy.
Keep the original packaging intact otherwise, retailers may charge you a restocking fee, especially for electronics.
Also, keep your receipt that way you can get a full refund otherwise you’ll get store credit.
Lastly, bring your ID, because some stores use computerized return systems that detect abuse and you may be required to show identification.
