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.

    • This photo of a dog with a mouthful of ladybugs is freaking out pet owners

      The photo that Kansas veterinarian Lindsay Mitchell posted to Facebook looked so unreal and disturbing that some who saw it went right to the hoax-busting website Snopes to verify it. But that didn’t stop the photo from being shared more than 53,000 times since it went up last week. Mitchell, of Hoisington, Kan., posted a graphic picture of a dog with a mouthful of Asian lady beetles. Ladybugs aren’t so cute when 30 to 40 of them are stuck to the roof of a dog’s mouth. “This is the second pup I have seen like this today. If your pet is drooling or foaming at the mouth look for these lady bugs. They cause ulcers on the tongue and mouth and have a very painful bite,” she wrote on the Hoisington

    • On opening night, Jeremy Lin started a new chapter in his career

      Last year was a new experience for Jeremy Lin. It was his first season as a Charlotte Hornet. (Also his last, at least for the time being.) It was his first season playing off the ball. It was also his first playing almost exclusively as a bench player. More than 80 percent of Lin’s appearances came as a reserve. 2015-16 also saw Lin put up his highest usage rate since his breakout campaign as a Knick back in 2011-12 while setting a career-best turnover percentage mark. His role shrunk, but he used his time more wisely, and though he wasn’t tremendously efficient as a Hornet, Lin showed a level of versatility to his game. On Wednesday night, Lin entered his first season as a member of the Brooklyn

      Donald Trump’s march to Loserland is only just beginning. His real pain starts the day after Election Day. As they say in his native Queens, what goes around comes around. And come it will. Accelerated business losses. A continent-wide clamoring to remove his miasmic moniker from buildings. Multiple looming lawsuits, two of them fraud actions arising from Trump University, one of those before federal Judge Gonzalo Curiel in San Diego, whom he suggested was biased because of his ethnicity. Trump will also face revelatory depositions should he follow through on threats to sue the 11 women who have recently accused him of sexual transgressions. He might remember his deposition during his 1990 divorce

The Australian businessman is alleged to have ended his 10-month engagement to the US pop star due to her extravagant spending in the midst of their wedding preparations.

    • The future of US naval dominance summed up in one picture

      In the above picture we see just one large boat, the USS Zumwalt, and just one plane, an F-35C, but that's likely all the US Navy will need to dominate the seas in the future. Despite being the US Navy's largest-ever destroyer, the USS Zumwalt is a ship so stealthy that it appears as a small fishing boat on enemy radars and sometimes has to deploy mirrors to make it more visible to friendly traffic on the open ocean. "If Batman had a ship, it would be the USS Zumwalt," Adm. Harry B. Harris, Jr., commander of the US Pacific Command, told CNN.  Both the Zumwalt and the F-35 share one key concept of the Navy's vision looking forward — modularity. With a large rear flight deck and a oversized power

      The new MacBook Pro is here — literally available for preorder today — and I’ve just tried it. The best thing I can say about is simple: everything about it looks and feels so good I almost didn’t believe it.We’ll start with the marquee feature, the Touch Bar. What you might not have gathered from the keynote is that it has a matte finish, which makes the buttons on it somehow feel a little more physical. It’s bright, but not so bright that it distracts — it seems to be about on par with the brightness of the backlit keyboard.
