Online shopping is a blast. But on those rare (or perhaps not so rare) occasions when you aren't entirely satisfied with an item you've purchased—maybe it's the wrong size, fits funny or just isn't really you—returning it can be a major headache.
Not so, however, with the 15 sites listed in the article below. Every last one of them offers free refunds, and with return shipping on the house to boot. What better reason to start shopping the interwebs?
All US purchases can be returned within 15 days (including transit time) completely free of charge—just use the prepaid label included in your original delivery.
