It's Official: Costco Changes Return Policy For Certain Items

Posted by Artem Russakovskii on February 27th, 2007 in Stuff


Here's the summary: TVs, computers, cameras, camcorders, iPods, MP3 players and cell phones now have a 90 day return period. TVs and computers have a free 2 year extended warranty by Costco. Items bought before the policy went into effect Monday, Feb 26 are not affected by this change and can be returned according to the old policy.

Well, we all knew it was coming, and even though I'm not happy about it, I understand why it had to be done: the policy abuse was just too outrageous. Won't stop me from shopping in Costco though.
