Call it an early Christmas gift. As of this weekend, Best Buy has eliminated most restocking fees for returns. That's right folks, now you'll be able to return things to Best Buy without having to pay a pesky fee. The exception to this new policy is special order items, which will have a 25 percent restocking fee.
In addition to removing the restocking fee, Best Buy is offering a refund on restocking fees to anyone who returned an item between November 17 and this past Friday. Best Buy's previous policies charged customers a 15 percent restocking fee on most electronic items in the store. For iPhones, the restocking fee was 10 percent.
Best Buy made the announcement via a statement, which read:
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.
