Amazon Tip #9: Use the Return Policy

So you used the previous 8 tips and went crazy buying gear on and now you realize that this product wasn’t quite what you wanted or you have buyer’s remorse on that other product. That’s ok! If the product hasn’t yet shipped, you may be offered the option to cancel the order. Just log into your account, view your orders, and see if cancelling your order is one of the available actions. If the product has already been shipped, that’s still ok! Learn to return!

I always find it difficult to return items from online stores because of the fact that they don’t refund the original shipping price. But guess what? With Amazon, most of the stuff I purchased comes with free shipping, so no money lost there! For the few times that I’ve returned items, Amazon paid for the return shipping and there was no restocking fee. All I had to do was sign into my Amazon account, report that I wanted to return an item, follow the directions, print out the labels, pack the box, label the box, and drop it off. Amazon has the motto “Returns Are Easy” and the return policy truly lives up to this moniker. If you are more of a visual person, Amazon also offers a short video tutorial on the return process. The shipping policy varies so make sure you check out the return policy before purchasing an item.
