In rare good news for consumers, our Corporate OverLords have decided to give us a break ;-) Best Buy has decided to stop charging 15% restocking fees on a variety of products (except special orders), including digital cameras and such. Details via Consumerist, Engadget, Daily Tech, Slick Deals, and Best Buy Corporate.
Better yet, according to an internal email obtained by The Consumerist, if you were charged a restocking fee at Best Buy between November 17 and December 17, 2010, you can take the paperwork to your local store and ask for a refund of the restocking fee.
In other pro-consumer news, in recent months, Buy.com extended their return policy to 45 days (only applies to items sold by Buy.com, not the third-party sellers), while Adorama extended theirs to 30 days. Meanwhile, J&R World has extended the holiday shopping return period to February 1st.
