Is it important to you stores have return policies?

Stinkytofu10 Stinkytofu10
I always feel like if a store doesn't have a generous return policy, there's something fishy about their product. I pretty much boycott clothing stores that only allow you to return cloth into store credits (Forever 21, Akira ect).

This is one of the reasons why I buy my toys on Eden. Eden offers a very generous return policy in term of toys, and I can feel confident about the product I receive.

How important is return policy for you?

Return policies are very important to me, especially when you're buying something online or something with mechanical parts. It could be messed up or not like you expected and you'd never even know it! If you can't return it, that's a total crock.

Return policies are somewhat important because there are times that something doesn't work right out of the box, I think they should be willing to take it back without giving me hassle. It's not like I broke it with my mind or something, you know?

I very rarely, if ever, return things to a RL store. If it is clothing, I have already tried it on there, so I know if it works. I don't recall ever getting home with anything defective, but if I did, I would want to know I could return it.

That's actually what prompted me to buy my first toy on Eden instead of elsewhere (Which then led to me reviewing, then to discovering more about myself sexually, etc). Especially when buying something mechanical it's a big deal to me!

I stopped shopping at F21 because of that. It wasn't always that way (that you could only exchange or get store credit), and I was pissed off the first time I found out that the policy changed after trying to return something. And then it changed from a month time period to 21 days because that just seemed like a cute thing to do since it matched the store name, supposedly. What the heck?

In any case, it is very important to me to be able to return something. I obviously will exchange if I have to, though. I won't stay stuck with a bad product.

It really depends on the store for me. For instance, if Eden didn't have a return policy that wouldn't bother me at all, but if Walmart said SORRY NO RETURNS! I wouldn't shop there anymore.

I agree. Its a pain in the ass to return something I probably wont return it. I most likely will just keep it and never buy anything in the store again.

That's the same reason I came to Eden!

Extremely important to me, have already had to live with it and without it I would have for example quite a few defective toys around already!!! ^^

It's nice to be able to return things, but I understand stores that don't have return policies. You never know what problems that person could have had or what they did to the item before returning it. What if someone who unknowingly had bed bugs returned a sweater that had eggs in it? That would be a huge issue for the store to deal with.

Definitely important to me that stores have a good return policy. It's just good business sense and goes a long way to promoting good customer service with me.

Internet businesses need a liberal return policy. When you are buying a product sight unseen - mistakes are going to be made. I have to know that I can return it with a minimum of grief.

I have only had to return a few things and I give EF 5 stars for their policy.

That's the same reason I stopped shopping at forever 21 a long time ago. It was 7 years ago and I was still in high school. I bought a jacket in a rush. After I walked out of the store, upon closer inspection, I realized the jacket was really terribly made. There was a lot of lose thread everywhere.

I went back and tried to return it. They told me I could only get store credit (which was news to me). So I took the jacket, and told them I will never shop there again. I was true to my words I never walked into that store again.

Anyways, I love Nordstrom. I love their forever return policy. Doesn't matter if you have tag/receipt or if things have been used or worn. Surprisingly I think after years of shopping with them, I've only returned things to Nordstrom maybe 3 times.

They are definitely important to me. I need them to be reasonable. Sometimes items just don't work out!

Yes, for me they are. Especially on expensive items.

I feel that even if there is no return policy, or it is crappy, and the store sells me a crappy product I can always get my money back. Maybe I'm being a little too cocky tho. LOL.

YES, I like return policies. The more expensive the item, the more neccesary the return policy.

I like to know that store will take care of the product if something is wrong with it.

I work for a store with an extremely liberal return policy. You can basically return anything for any reason at any time. You would think there would be a lot of abuse of something like that but it turns out the customers love to have the option even if they don't use it much. We don't actually get many returns since we carry high quality products.

I work in an adult store and for obvious reasons (that very few of my customers seem to understand) we do not give refunds or exchanges. We do offer a small exception when it comes to vibrators and DVDs through. If there's a manufacturer's defect we'll exchange the item for a similar one within 7 days of when it was purchased.

I just hate when people try to bring back things because they didn't like them. I don't get paid nearly enough to handle used sex toys.

Totally agree with this. There's a huge difference between seeing a product in action and reading reviews that you have to trust to be unbiased.
