Before buying anything at this time of year, you need to ask a simple question. What is your refund policy?
Don’t assume you can get your money back on something bought as a gift.
Some stores give exchanges or credits only. Some stores give refunds, but deduct a restocking fee of 10 to 20 per cent.
Retail chains have different refund policies for different items. So, it’s worth checking what they say at their websites.
