Hey guys,

I thought Target and several more retailers' awesome return policy is often overlooked; therefore, I feel this article [reviewed.com] should give us a better understanding of our return benefits and shopping experience when we shop at those retailers.

Here are a few relevant quotes found on the same article:

"...In March 2015, Target announced the extended return policy that covers their owned and exclusive-brand items. These labels include a wide variety of fashion, home, and beauty products.

This applied to 32 brands when the policy started four years ago, but the list has grown substantially since then. There are currently more than 50 brands that the policy applies to, including Wild Fable, Opalhouse, and Sonia Kashuk. Even certain food items are covered under this policy. Applicable brands include Archer Farms, Market Pantry, and the newly launched Good & Gather, which is expected to have more than 2,000 food items by next year.

Here's the full list as of November 2019:
Target-owned brands [Picture].

Target spokesperson Danielle Schumann said this move was a testament to the brand's commitment to producing products that last: "We implemented this one-year, owned-brand return policy in service to our guests and to stand behind the quality of our products."

How does the policy work?

You'll need to bring the receipt or credit card you used to buy the item.

To return items from any qualifying brands, customers simply need to provide a receipt or present the electronic payment method used for the purchase. You can then choose to return or exchange the item.

So if your Universal Thread jeans or your kid's Cat & Jack sneakers don't stand the test of time, you can return them within a year. The same holds true for furniture or home decor from Threshold or Opalhouse, as well as Wondershop holiday items.

Other stores with generous return policies

Target isn't the only retailer with one of the best in-store and online return policies. Bloomingdale's, Ikea, and L.L.Bean also offer shoppers a full calendar year to bring back unwanted items.

However, L.L. Bean changed its notorious lifetime return policy in 2018, citing a "small, but growing number of customers" who were returning extremely worn or even secondhand purchases for refunds.

When asked if Target has any concerns of customers abusing the return policy, Schumann reiterated that they stand behind their commitment to high-quality products and making the shopping and return process easier. ..."

Enjoy and share your experience,

I have seen it written on the tags of some of their clothing and kitchen items. I never tried to use the return policy past the normal window though. It may be worth mentioning that a Redcard purchase extends a return another 30 days, no matter what brand.

Other notable companies with amazing return policies are Lands End, Kohls, and Costco.

Bed Bath Beyond had a great return policy for store-bought items but I have not shopped there for years and maybe it has changed.

I've tried this with cat & jack at target and the red card does not bring up the transaction after three months. The employees were also not aware of this policy at my store and I couldn't bring that part of the return policy up on their mobile site even with viewing it as a desktop site on my phone. They said I could print the policy and bring it in, but I haven't done it yet.
