I can't tell you how many times I bought clothes without trying them on in the store thinking I would return whatever didn't fit, and then I completely spaced out about getting back to the store on time to get a refund. The same thing has happened with gifts that I bought and then decided to get something else for the giftee. The original gifts and those ill-fitting clothes were donated to charity, but my budget suffered for it. I'm sure this has happened to most people, whether it's with clothes or other items.
Being right in the middle of the prime shopping season, I decided to see if there were any mobile apps that would somehow help me and my readers get returns to the store on time so we could get our refunds. I found apps that do just that, based on individual store policies. They can remind you when it's getting close to the end of the return window of time, too. And, there are a couple of apps that help you compare shipping options so you can save if you need to ship returns back to the retailer.
