If you have a credit card, are you aware of all the perks and benefits available to you as a cardholder? Hip2Save reader, Kayla, was pleasantly surprised at what she discovered about her Discover Card when she ended up with an expensive pair of too-large rainboots that came with a no-return policy. Check out the email that she sent me last week…
I just found out about an awesome free perk of having a Discover Credit Card! I recently bought a pair of expensive rain boots on sale. The company suggested ordering a size down since they run large. When my order arrived, I was disappointed to find the boots were still too big! I contacted the company to do an exchange, but was told since it was a final sale item there would be no returns or exchanges.
I reached out to Discover Card to see if they could help and come to find out I have Return Guarantee! All I have to do is fill out a claim form, mail the boots to them at my expense, and they will send me a check for the purchase price! The boots do have to be in the original packing and I need my receipt.
I figure spending the $10 or so on shipping is better than being stuck trying to sell them on eBay or wearing three pairs of socks to make them fit. The Guarantee covers purchases up to $500 and you can claim up to $2,500 a year. It’s good for up to 90 days after purchase. Works for in-store and online purchases and it doesn’t matter what the stores return policy is. Just wanted to share, in case it helps other Hip2Savers!
