Terrific Tip Tuesday...

{As a new blog feature I hope to present you with helpful tips each Tuesday. Please let me know what you all think.}

This week's Tip:

*Help retail returns to go smoothly- When you buy an item at the mall, always ask for a gift receipt. If you have one, retailers may be more lenient when you decide to return your purchase. With a regular receipt you often have 30 days to take goods back, but stores often accept a gift receipt for up to 60 days.

Hope this helps!

I didn't know this, Lindsay ~ thanks!

Walmart purchases: If you buy something using a debit card, credit card or gift card & you need to return it....

If you give them your receipt, they will automatically put the $ back on your card. If you prefer cash back, tell them you don't have the receipt. For me, getting cash back is much better! :o)
