Returning gifts: ‘Mondays with Morrisey’

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

Now that your presents are opened, you may be thinking of returning some of them, but there are a few things you need to know before you head to the store.

West Virginia's Attorney General Patrick Morrisey explains in this week's edition of 'Mondays with Morrisey.'

"Now we're sure some people got some incredible gifts for Christmas, but every now and then, consumers want to make sure that they're returning gifts and get something that may be a little bit more tailored to your taste.

If you're going to take a gift back, make sure you know the return policy from the retailer. Some items don't actually allow returns. You should know that up front when you purchase the product.

Second, if there is a return policy, know what the deadline is. Whether it's seven days, 21 days, know that in advance. It also may help you to go quickly because after the Christmas sales, when things have died down a little bit, that actually may be a really good time to go to avoid a lot of the long lines.

And finally, make sure that you actually keep the identification tags on it. If you get rid of the tags or some of the parts of the package, you may not be able to get your money back. Make sure that you go out there and have a great shopping experience after the holidays," said Morrisey.
