Target Returns Policy

Target's return policy is highly rated for its clarity and customer-friendly terms. Most unopened items sold by Target in new condition can be returned within 90 days for a full refund or exchange, with no restocking fee and free return shipping. This generous return window and lack of additional costs make returns easy and accessible for customers.

While the return process is straightforward, requiring customers to log in to their account and print a return label, it may involve a few extra steps compared to some other retailers. Refunds are typically processed quickly, usually within 5 days of receiving the returned item.

Certain items have a shorter return window, and some exclusions apply, but these exceptions are clearly stated, contributing to a transparent and fair return policy.

Target Refunds

Target's refund process is efficient and customer-friendly. Refunds are issued to the original form of payment, typically taking 1-3 days to process back to a credit card. For items returned to the Online Return Center, processing and checking the item can take up to 5 days before the refund is issued.

For purchases made with a Target Circle™ Card, refunds may be processed even faster. If multiple forms of payment were used, the refund may be split accordingly. For items returned in-store without the original receipt, a merchandise return card may be issued instead.
