Being able to make purchases with the peace of mind knowing that you will be able to return it for a full refund makes shopping a lot easier. However, Best Buy, in the past, has enacted a policy called the restocking fee, which charged 15% on general electronics and 10% on phones if you decided to return it. As you can imagine, customers would only purchase things they knew they needed, because who wants to lose money on a purchase that you end up returning?
I use the phrase “in the past” because Best Buy has recently announced that it has removed the restocking fee. The new policy was effective December 18 and will continue from here on out. In case you have any last minute Christmas shopping to do, Best Buy wants you to shop with the peace of mind knowing every purchase will be fully refunded. The full announcement can be read below:
Best Buy continually listens to our customers, and they told us they want to give confidently this holiday season and every other day of the year — and with that comes easier returns. Effective Saturday, December 18, Best Buy is improving its return policy by removing restocking fees for all products except special orders. Customers can visit BestBuy.com for further information.
