Today the stores will be filled with “gift getters” returning things that they may not have been totally satisfied with.

Americans return nearly $90 billion worth of gifts over the holiday season, and the day after Christmas is usually when shoppers make their returns.

My firends at ABC 11 have put together some tips to make sure your returns are quick and easy:

First, make sure you check the company’s return policy and deadline for returns. You may be eligible for returns with free shipping.

For the most part, if you have a receipt or purchased with a debit or credit card, you’ll receive a full refund. Some stores offer store credit.

At Target, if you have a receipt, items can be returned within one year. Unopened items in new condition may be returned within 90 days.

Most items sold at Toys “R” Us qualify for a 90-day return period. But items like cameras and video game hardware must be returned within 30 days.

Walmart’s policy varies depending on the item. Some fall under a 15-day return window, while other items can be returned within 30 days.
