Holiday Gift Returns May Be A Little Different This Year

If you're still working on returning Christmas gifts that weren't quite right for you, be aware that the pandemic-fueled increase in online shopping may have you dealing with a different set of rules than in years past. According to an NBC News story at KPRC 2, stores may have new return policies in place and some may require you to return items purchased online through the website and ship them back rather than in person. They spoke to an expert who recommends, among other things, taking a photo of your receipt to make sure you have a good record of it, and reading the fine print to avoid the frustration of trying to return things the wrong way.
