Best Return Policies From Online Retailers

Returning anything after buying it online can be a huge pain.

Some retailers still require a receipt or have a very small window for how long you can keep something before giving it back. Not these retailers, however.

From Nordstrom to Zappos, these online stores make it easy as pie to return things you don't like, want, or need in your life.

Scroll below for a handful of other retailers that offer exceptional return policies!


Nordstrom notes that they handle their returns on a "case-by-case basis," but they're almost always approved. They always do their best to take care of the customer, so you know they'll have your best interest at heart. The only thing is you can't return products from Nordstrom Rack to a Nordstrom store nearest you.


Zappos offers one of the best online return policies out there. They let you return anything within a year of purchasing it, so long as it's unworn. Zappos even has a return label you can print out for free.

Lands' End

While many retailers set a limit on when you can return an item, Lands' End doesn't. Their return policy states that you can send something back "at any time for an exchange or refund of its purchase price."

Bed Bath & Beyond

Even if you need to return something without a receipt, Bed Bat & Beyond makes it easy. They'll help you find the purchase through the debit or credit card you used with their simple returns policy.


Returning anything on L.L.Bean is fairly simple. They'll accept returns on items for up to a year. If you're returning something online, they'll waive the standard shipping fee, but you will be charged $6.50 to ship the returned item. L.L.Bean Mastercard members won't have to pay that fee, however.


Merchandise ordered online at Kohl's can be returned by mail or at a Kohl's store, though you won't be refunded for shipping costs. They do try to make the process as hassle-free as they can though.


At Ikea, you can return any item within a year for a full refund. You will need proof of purchase, of course. But if it's dirty, stained, damaged, or abused, the item can't be returned for a refund or exchange.


There's not really a limit to when you can return an item from JCPenney, but there are still some restrictions that apply. It just depends on what you ordered and when it's being returned.


If you're not happy with what you received, Walmart offers free and easy returns. You can do it by mail or in store, whichever is easiest for you.


For items purchased at Gap, Old Navy, or Banana Republic, there's a 45 day return policy, but it's free to return them even when mailing them back. For items purchased at Athleta or Hill City, they can be returned at any time.
