I’m pretty sure it’s 90 days now. And if you return something without a receipt they give you the lowest price it ever sells for in the store. So it might sell for $41, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll get that much for it.

As long as they still carry it, they will accept it I suspect. They are good about returns.

Give it a try. I know my Mother-In-Law often returns stuff sometimes up to a year later because she prebuys gifts.

EDIT:  “We want you to be completely satisfied with your purchase but understand that sometimes an item needs to be returned or exchanged. No worries!  Returns and exchanges can be made at any time after purchase.”

Although youll likely get store credit, which is not bad either! Be sure to return it when its not on sale, then your more likely to get the full price. Typically stores give you the value of what it currently sells for at that moment

I don’t know, but if it was purchased on someone else’s credit card, they won’t give you cash for it.

You *might* get store credit but likely they’re going to want to credit the card it was purchased on (if that is the case).

Personally I’d ask around and try to figure out who actually purchased it so that it can be returned to them. If there’s a receipt, the store itself might be able to tell you who purchased it.

Personally, I’d keep it and attach a totally made up story to it. The mystery of the traveling plate. Pass it down through the family as a haunted family heirloom.

But, I’m kind of weird like that.

Macy’s does not have a limit. It doesn’t have to be refunded on the card that bought it- that wouldn’t make sense because what if you want to return a gift. They’ll only let you exchange or give a gift card.

I used to work with a woman you worked PT at Macy’s and she said they accepted items, with tags, as far as 5 years back.

180 days without a receipt you would get the lowest selling price. Personally I would just keep it.

@mamadingdong:  If you want a *refund* I believe it does have to be on the card (unless it was paid for in cash). If you want store credit or to exhange it for something, it’s a different story.

@Coral99:  LOL how mysterious. Too bad it’s not your style.

They will give you the lowest selling price, which is normally way below any price you’d have ever seen on it.  I shop the clearance of sales and coupon on top of that, and they’ve scanned return prices for less than what I paid, I dont’ even know how its psosible.  If its regularly $41, and it’s on sale, I’m guess you’d get back like half to 2/3 of sale price at best.

@Coral99:  That’s pretty neat! I like “oddball” kind of stuff like that. If I found a neat picture in an apartment I was taking over, I’d likely keep it. If it was pretty/tasteful, I’d keep it up.

Passing on the plate, just imagine it generations down! Young children sitting at their grandpappy’s feet, “So, why do you keep that plate under lock and key, grandpa?”

“Well, sonny, it all started long, long ago with my great, great great (so on and so forth) grandmother who had it mysteriously appear in the house one day. Rumors started that it was haunted with the spirits of a pack of camels/llamas/werewolves/whatever that used to roam these lands… and if we don’t keep a good eye on it, and keep it from escaping, it might roam these lands free once more wreaking havok upon the city!”

Mmm.. that would be amazing.

I have a pin that I bought through a charity. It’s 100% silly but I wholeheartedly intend to make it a family heirloom.

Here it is:

I love this thing so effing much
