If you are looking to return goods on Amazon it works out easier than you might think. I finally did this just today and it worked out pretty good. Make sure you double check Amazon’s terms and return policy as this might not be 100% up to date when you read it (things sometimes change) but it should come close.
So I bought pants that felt too tight from Amazon. I still had the Amazon box and the packaging materials it came in. I highly recommend keeping the packaging until you know you want to keep the goods. I logged into my account, looked up my pant order and went through the simple return process. At the end of the process on-line, there is no refund / credit of money just yet. Amazon emails you a link so you can print a UPS ( United Parcel Service) label.
I printed the label from work since my printer at home hasn’t been working. Since I did not have blank labels to print on, I printed on a normal blank sheet of paper, cut out the label and affixed to the box using a large wide piece of clear tape. If you do this make sure you do not crease or bubble the tape over the label. You don’t want to mar the writing or especially the bar code. Then I looked up the local UPS store and dropped the box off.
I asked the UPS store what would happen if I had no way of printing the label? They said I could forward the label email Amazon sent to me to the store and they would print out but there would be a charge ($5 at the moment). If you need to do this, call your local store first and find out.
I also asked what would happen if I was able to print the label but had no way of properly affixing it to the box? They said they can do that at no extra charge. That said, always call first to make sure this policy does not change.
Lastly, I asked if I print the label but can’t drop it off the same day, can I drop it off another day? They said I could do this…. But again, check first as policies change.
So after I dropped it off at the UPS store drop off, they told me to wait while they scanned and make a receipt. Took just a minute. About an hour after scanning I got an email stating Amazon was processing the refund and it would show on my account in a few days.
