Amazon Holiday Return Policy Now In Effect

Just a reminder that Amazon’s holiday return policy is now in effect.  All purchases made directly from Amazon.com from 11/01-12/31 can be returned until 01/31/13!

If there’s an item that you wanted to test out for a few months then now is the time!  And don’t forget to weigh the benefits of using Amazon gift cards bought at an office supply store to earn 5 miles per dollar versus the extended warranty that American Express offers.

    @moshe:
    Just go into your local Office Max, Office Depot, or Staples and they sell gift cards.
    Amazon and Kindle gift cards both work at Amazon.com

    @bs:
    What do they consider abuse? You would probably have to do dozens of returns before they might take any action.

    @bs:
    Sure, but how many other total returns on “defective” items did he do?

    I really don’t think they’re shutting down anyone’s account for 2 returned items.

    Dan,
    I bought T Mobile Gift cards at Office Depot and was charged a fee. There are some gift cards with fees.

    You could also just pay the few dollars to ship it back and not Claim it was defective

    I bought a ton of Amazon Kindle gift cards at Office Max with my Ink card when they were on sale for 20% off (plus 10% back with Ink).

    There were definitely no fees on any store gift cards there.

    You have a point Joseph. We don’t need to take advantage of every opportunity given. After all we are being watched…

    I used to work for a (Jewish) company that sold on amazon and also FBA. they lost a lot of money from people buying and then returning claiming “defective”. They used to test all the products returned as defective, and then fight with amazon to get their money back as the item wasn’t really defective. (as an aside, Amazon keeps tabs on those who buy and return often, as the companies file claims with amazon that the item really works fine.) Additionally, they lost money on shipping, which is often free. It is DISHONEST to say something is defective if it isn’t. you can always buy something, and then depending on the company’s return policy try to return it and pay for return shipping / restocking fee if there is one. If the item sent is not exactly what it is supposed to be, or differs in any way from the item details or description,all money is refunded without a problem.
