Everything You Need to Know About Amazon's Return Policy

If there's one thing you can rely on in this world, it's Amazon. Groceries, ebooks, last-minute necessities (thank you, Prime), it's got you. And when your purchases don't quite work out, most of them are refundable through Amazon's standard 30-day policy. See exactly what you can and can't return below.
