Costco Return Policy Review

Costco Return Policy Review

Membership Club Costco is another retailer trying to make returns easy.  They will even cancel and refund your membership in full at any time if you are not satisfied.

Shoppers are members who pay fees to join, so “we will refund in full at any time (if) a member is dissatisfied,” says Franz Lazarus, an executive vice president with Costco. Members generally get the refund in the same form they paid, while nonmembers would likely get cash or store gift cards, he says.

With consumer electronics, which tend to have a shelf life, there is a 90-day window to return, he says. “That’s the only exception.”

The Best Store Return Policy

Costco’s return policy is so good they even have a better return policy for the items and companies they sell. Lets take for instance Dyson vacuum cleaners. Dyson has a 30 day return policy. Now, if you purchase it from Costco they will honor a 90 day return policy. Now that’s a great company.
