3 Legitimate Reasons For Getting An Immediate Product Refund


 3 Legitimate Reasons For Getting An Immediate Product Refund

It's always nice to get a refund, but sometimes it doesn't seem clear when the time is right. When is an item too old for a refund? Are store-swaps allowed? Is there a time limit for refunds on furniture?

That's why we've compiled this short guide on when you can request a return or product refund — to make sure that you never have to miss out on those extra pennies. With this article as your handy guide, you'll be able to tell the difference between those scenarios in which getting your money back is ok, and those where it isn't.

Why should you get a refund? Three legitimate reasons listed! Read on, now.

Here are three legitimate reasons why get an immediate product refund:

1. You changed Your Mind (even if just a little)

We all change our minds. Whether it's something as small as not liking the colour of that new kitchen stool, or something as big as realizing you don't like the design of your new bedroom set after all — it happens to everyone and is completely normal. The same goes for products: having second thoughts isn't always a bad thing and it doesn't mean you're doing anything wrong — sometimes we just need to think things over.

If you decide to get a refund for your item within 30 days of purchase, the store you purchased it from will have to honour the request and give you back your money. (I'm sure they would love to, but there are some exceptions that apply.) The item needs to not have been worn, used, or damaged at all. (That's why these things last so long, and are perfectly fine if you don't wear them.)

2. You Got A Better Offer From Another Store

Shopping is a lot of fun — but there always comes a point where you're looking for something piece-of-mind and need an extra discount or something special. By getting a refund, you can save some money and still receive the item.

If you need an item for a specific time and are having trouble finding it, or if you just want to receive your item from another store, you can request a refund on items purchased up to 60 days after your purchase. (That means if that chair's been sitting in your living room for over 60 days, it's too old.)

3. The Store Manager Said It Wasn't Acceptable

Sometimes things happen that aren't fair and aren't always easy to ask.


If you have one of the above-mentioned reasons for getting a refund, then go ahead and request it. You will need to return the item to its store of purchase within a reasonable time window in order for them to take care of the refund. In most cases, this should be done within two weeks. Keep in mind that if you purchased an item over 60 days ago, you won't receive a refund — it just means that you'll have to sell the item back or re-gift it. Once your store receives your returned product, they'll review its condition before issuing your refund.
