Great news: You now have an entire year to return Target purchases. The retailer has extended its return policy—clearly, its not taking a cue from Bed Bath & Beyond. All 32 of its owned and exclusive brands are covered under the new plan, although you still have to have the original receipt in order to get a full refund. In the past, Target maintained a 90-day return policy.
On top of that, customers who use Target's gift registries now have a year from the event date to return any unwanted items on their registry list, with or without a receipt.
