A survey from the National Retail Federation estimates nearly two-thirds of people made at least one return during the 2016 holiday season. For example, Nordstrom and Costco will allow you to return just about anything, no matter how long it's been, for money back or in-store credit.

If your gift is from Macy's, you're in luck. And if you spend more than $3,500 per year, you can make those returns up until February 13. The bookseller gives you two weeks to return items bought online or in-store if you want a refund. Do not assume that you have the right to return or exchange an unwanted present for equal/lesser value or even at all. And you can not return if you didn't buy it directly from an Apple Store or Apple online. However, the store extended its window for the holidays until January 15. No refunds. Many items, including music, movies, software and video games, are not eligible for return if their packages are opened. The item just needs to be in its "original" condition, and you'll need proof of purchase, which can be a receipt or the credit card with which the item was purchased. Walmart says the window for items with 15-day or 30-day return policies won't start until December 26. If you don't shop at the store for which you received the card, you can trade the cards for one you'll actually use. Some items, including consumer electronics, space heaters, and grills, will have a 15 percent restocking fee if used and if they are not in their original packaging.
