Secrets of Success

Save All Receipts



After every purchase, put every receipt in a folder. If the item later goes on sale, you can take the receipt back and get a refund of the difference in price. Or if you need to return an item, (it breaks or you decide you don't need it or like it) you will be able to do so.

More Information:

I don't organize them, I just know I can find it the receipt if I need it! After a few moths, I go through them and throw away the ones I'm sure I won't need.

  • Many stores in our area have a 30 day price match policy (Home Depot has 30 days) and many stores allow returns for up to 90 days after purchase if you have the receipt or use the store credit card. It is worth it to check your stores! - by GLACIAL_ERRATIC
  • I have found that many stores give a 30 day time limit to go back and get an adjustment on the price, or if you see it advertised at another store. Most stores have their return policies posted online, or call the store. For returns, some stores allow up to 90 days. It's worth checking. - by GLACIAL_ERRATIC
  • Most stores have a time limit on how long you have to return a product. There is also a limit on taking a receipt back to get a "now" sale price. They certainly don't do it weeks later. I think one week is the limit. - by SPARQUEE
