What is Tech? What to know about returning items after Amazon Prime Days

Job :

Unsurprisingly, the Amazon Prime Days event was another hit, becoming the biggest online shopping event in history. Amazon said that during the 48-hour sale event, shoppers purchased more than 300 million items.

What we will never know is how many of these items will be returned.

Many Prime Day shoppers know they’re going to return something they’ve ordered before they even open the box. Although Amazon makes most returns easy, there are some things you need to know that cost you dearly.

Returns of Prime member purchases sold and shipped by Amazon are free, with some exceptions. Simply click through your orders and choose the item you wish to return.

You will be asked for a reason. None of them are “I changed my mind”. Amazon asks if the product is faulty, didn’t arrive on time, or if you found it for a better price elsewhere.

You then print a shipping label, package the item, and ship it back yourself. Or you can take it to a UPS shipping location or Kohl’s Department Store. Read the return instructions carefully, don’t put it in a box if you’re returning it to the store, just take it inside and let them scan a QR or barcode that Amazon will email you .

Tip: When you receive the QR code from Amazon, take a screenshot on your phone in case you can’t get a good internet signal when you get to the store.

Tip 2: Keep the return receipt to prove that you returned the item in case it gets lost. You should receive an email shortly after depositing it stating that it has been received and your refund has been returned.

If you purchased the item from a third party seller who shipped it, you may have 30 days to return it for a refund, but each third party seller has their own return policy. You may be able to get a refund, but you’ll probably have to pay the shipping costs. On a $10 item, you may need to pay a minimum of $5.99 to return it.

There are items that cannot be returned. Computers after 30 days, non-UPC items, software, some jewelry, health and grocery items, and live insects. Yes, Amazon sells live crickets, worms, and cockroaches. You must keep them.

Amazon keeps track of how many items you return and for what reasons. If you return 5-10 items per month or more than 10% of what you order for no reason other than, you have changed your mind, you may receive a warning from Amazon that if you continue to return items, your account will be suspended or you’ll even be banned from Amazon.

Beware of impulse purchases.
