Retail return policy and deadlines for unwanted holiday gifts: Walmart, Target, Amazon, Apple, etc.
People have had months to take advantage of this year’s holiday deals, but that doesn’t mean they got what you really wanted. Whether it’s a hideous shirt, three-size shoes that are too small, or something you already own, you’re hoping to get it back. And who can blame you?
Whatever the problem, if you’re looking to bring it back to the store, the clock is ticking. How long will the return window open—and will they buy the gift back in early October?
The answer depends a lot on where it was purchased, but overall, there’s a good chance you can still get it back. Of course, return policies vary by store, and some gifts cannot be returned at all. That said, here’s the deadline for returning your unwanted gifts in 2022.
