Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From “Here are the holiday return policies for 31 popular retailers, including Best Buy, Apple, and Amazon”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Whether they're being given or received, gifts are a huge part of the holidays. Once all the unwrapping action settles down, you'll probably have to make some returns. Maybe that sweater from your aunt and uncle is too big. Maybe you already own that sheet set from cousin Joe. Whatever the case, holiday returns shouldn't be a hassle — and most of your favorite retailers know that. 

Many online retailers will extend their return window or tweak other parts of their policies come holiday time. To make your holiday shopping even easier, we've put together a list of the holiday return policies at some of your favorite retailers. Even if they don't have any holiday-specific policies, many stores and brands on this list offer pretty generous return windows year-round. And since gifting season is a few months away, some retailers have not yet released their holiday return policies just yet — we'll update this list when they do. 

Usually, Best Buy gives customers 15 days from the day they received their order to make a return on most standard products. An exception applies to cell phones, cellular tablets, and cellular wearables, which is 14 days. Best Buy Elite and Elite Plus members get 30 and 45 days, respectively. Last year, Best Buy offered an extended return window for the holidays. While we don't know the dates yet, we'd expect a similar extension this winter. 

Usually, Apple gives shoppers 14 days after the date received to return an item. Around the holidays, Apple typically extends this period to about a month. Last year, Apple gave shoppers until January 8, 2019, to return items purchased between November 14 and December 25, 2018. While we can't be sure of the exact dates, we expect a similar policy this year. 

Year-round, you'll get 30 days to return your Amazon purchases. During the holidays, Amazon extends this policy. Any items shipped by Amazon between November 1 and December 31 of this year may be returned until January 31, 2020, for a full refund.
