Before You Checkout On Amazon, Check This List Of 15 Things You Can’t Return

You’ve already got it in your sights this holiday season: Amazon. You’ve pulled on your comfy pants, got your gift list pared down and printed, and you’re ready to browse uninterrupted until every last present is placed in your online shopping cart.

Be aware, however, that some items can’t be returned to Amazon, despite the company’s standard return policy that allows customers to return most items sold and fulfilled by Amazon within 30 days of receipt — and for a full refund. The following items can’t be returned to Amazon anywhere, any way, at any time. So read on before you click on
“Place Order,” and you’ll know which items can’t be sent back, no matter how much money they set you back.
