'Tis the season for returning...

Now that Christmas is over, will you be taking back those unwanted gifts to exchange for something you REALLY want?  If so, then heed The Recessionista's advice, as many stores have changed and/or tightened up their return policies this year.  Target in particular has reduced the return period for computers (tablets, netbooks, and eReaders), cameras, game consoles, GPS units, etc. down to 30 days (instead of 45). In addition, opened items may be denied a refund/exchange. On the plus side, Target can search its system for receipts for customers who lose them.  In fact, most of the time I don't bother saving Target receipts anymore, as I know the store clerks can just look up my returns via my TargetRED Card.

And remember: the return deadline for the Target + Neiman-Marcus holiday collection is Jan. 5th. Perusing Target's website this morning, I notice that almost everything from the collab is still in stock, although several items (like these Brian Atwood gloves, the Tory Burch lunch box and the Tracy Reese dessert plates) are now listed as only "available in stores" and can no longer be ordered online.
