30 Online Stores That Offer Free Return Shipping

Buying online has its advantages. You can skip the traffic, long lines, cranky sales people, and those pesky shoppers who browse the sales rack alongside you like it’s a competitive sport. At home, you can take a more relaxed approach, save on gas, and even compare prices at multiple stores. Plus, there’s that whole shopping in your underwear thing (come on, we can’t be the only ones). The biggest drawback, though, is having to return an item you purchased online.

Sending an item back can not only cause extra hassle, but it could cost extra money. Many stores leave the shipping expense for a return up to the customer, and some even charge an additional restocking fee. That’s even if they allow for returns in the first place. It can be a true nightmare.

To these stores, we say nay! We scoured the online shopping landscape and rounded up 30 different stores that offer absolutely free returns. From Amazon.com to Zara.com, these stores won’t charge you a penny for returning an item to them. Plus, most of them even offer free shipping when you place your order!

And for online stores that allow for order returns to their bricks and mortar locations, check out the list at the end of this post!

  1. Online shopping becomes hassle when you have to return a purchased item. But if the store provides free return then its really a boon for shoppers. This is a great list you provided here. Thanks for sharing all these with us.

  2. Why are Costco, Nordstrom and Bed, Bath & Beyond not listed? These are the three stores that have the most generous return shipping of any store in the US. You can return any item from them to their store for free at any time for whatever reason….NO QUESTIONS ASKED! I once returned a pair of shoes at Nordstrom which I never really liked. I actually used it for a couple of times but decided I didn’t like the color. Then I’ve forgotten about it in my closet for 4 years! I returned it along with the original box and receipt and they happily accepted it! I got a full refund. Now THAT is customer service!
