Gifts unwanted -- surge Gibson don't fit. To the store are against -- Edward two wars game with consumer world on Tommy joins us now on the WB in line behind you -- -- -- doing this morning. Good morning you know stores have return policies we know that some of those stores have these policies posted. In the conspicuous -- to do buyers pay attention to that stuff Edgar. Well unfortunately they'd down so that means if they're going back to return all those on wanted chris' presence today -- big TP. In for a little bit of shock. The the term policies have gotten so complex lately it's it's no longer. This store has a ninety day policy disasters this period ultimately have to know different categories divided into different return period. -- electronics might be a much shorter period than say clothing. And there were a couple stores -- several this year that. Kind of change their policy shortening the windows two I understand. Well we had the -- retailer that we had tonight retailers that sometimes the combination of both. Best buy it really surprisingly. Cut their return window and half from thirty to fifteen days from both customers. And fears are major appliances and vacuums also cut its return window from sixty to thirty day. So the clock is ticking got to know that but my advice is go get those after Christmas sales today. Don't wait in line with both of the crazy people -- you could have had kind of a miserable time waiting along time. Edgar looks like gifts are bought online. That need to be returned might take a little longer -- with FedEx and UPS admitting many packages guaranteed for Christmas. Never admitted to their destinations because of bad weather and because these delivery companies have a middle they've been overwhelmed. But the number of things that they have to deliver how different is returning something that you want online. Then. Returning -- to a brick and mortar store. All the policies and not necessarily the same but the advantages if you buy from an online store that as a brick and mortar equivalent. In almost all cases. You can just bring it back to the brick and mortar store when you bought it why it happened the sports authority is the exception. If you bought its sports authority dot com you have to return at the sports authority dot com obviously the benefits to consumers did. You don't have to pay the shipping and handling charges and the brick and mortar stores. Tend to have been extended return window in many cases into January -- even with the delay from FedEx and UPS. Most consumers should be okay. Talk a little bit that you're about restocking fees. Are they seeing a surge in popularity. We're actually -- in the opposite restocking fees were very popular several years ago more remorse or is we're adopting -- they didn't want Judith. To go to best buy for example. On a Friday get a video camera for a wedding over the weekend event at the consumer bring it back on Monday morning. And the restocking -- would've. You know really prevented victim from doing that. Most brick and mortar stores have stopped using restocking fees office -- has won if you open electronic item for example. And some online stores particularly smaller online stores. Habit so. Just be careful that the electronic -- it's always Smart not to break the factory deal. That will help ensure you get the full refund and not have something deducted. -- what is your take on FedEx and UPS. Admitting that they have been overwhelmed by so many orders online and of course they attribute to there of the fact that some. The numbers to make it for Christmas and bad weather too but still all that said I mean these companies made promises to people. They've made promises and to the extent that you ordered. Eight times sensitive order you know where they guaranteed delivery in two days are over night or whatever. They have guarantee. Take advantage of the guarantee that had access that it's not delivered on time you can get a refund I also understand that if you complain to the seller. And you paid -- premium price for that last minute delivery. The sellers such as Amazon may even give -- a gift card back or may waive the shipping charging give you refunds. Okay Edgar good to have you with us we thank you for your time this morning thanks again again many happy returns. You do Edgar Jaworski is with consumer world dot com.
