I would say that KBtoys when it was around here had an annoying return policy. You had to have your drivers license and you could only return so many items a month. It's like wow... No wonder they went out of business around here.
No joke. Circuit City is much closer to me than Best Buy or Conn's or Fry's, but I'll be taking my business elsewhere from now on.

I've had problems with Best Buy.
Another vote for Zappos being the best!
Way, way back I worked at KMart in women's RTW. We took back anything and everything. People would bring back clothes their kids must have worn for a year, completely worn out and ripped up. Some people actually brought in things that were obviously hand made and we gave them $$. I don't know if the other departments were that liberal but it was ridiculous. I know they don't do it anymore, who could afford to?

I bought a carpet spot scrubber at Best Buy recently and it didn't work, so I took it back. I didn't have any trouble whatsoever getting a refund.

And, Circuit City has a 15% "restocking fee" or something that they take off any item that is returned if it is electronic. ( for them putting the item back into its box).

Wal-Mart has one of the most lax return policies ever!

You don't need a receipt. You can have the item for however long, but if they still sell it, you can return it.

If you have the receipt, you can get cash if originally paid through debit or cash. If it was credit, it goes back to the card. If it was check, then it's a long process - best to say no receipt for that one!

If you don't have the receipt, they give you a gift card - which could re-buy the product... or get something else entirely!

Default Repulsed

I am skeeved out thinking that I am buying brand new clothes when in reality someone has worn them, sweated in them and decided...nope these pants aren't for me and returns them.. UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!! Thanks for providing a list of stores that takes back worn clothes because I can surely guarantee those stores will never get my business.

Not at my Wal Mart. We had a woman come in a week ago and try to return used kids shirts and used bras. Needless to say she didn't walk out very happy.

At the Walmart I used to work at.. we had a woman return a dress after 7 years of wearing. I didn't approve the transaction. Best part, she said it no longer fit is the reason she was returning it. It was a woman's size 38.

Many times, customer service will take back anything that has a UPC - no matter the condition. They deal with so many people, they just want to appease the customer. It's a lot easier to return an item that shouldn't be.. than to fight tooth and nail over everything.

Oh yikes! Glad Wal-Mart didn't take back the merchandise. Trying a top or bra on is one thing...trying to return skanky worn clothes is another!
