Target is one of the largest retail stores in the US, that sells products ranging from household to beauty products. If you have bought a TV just to realize that this is not what you want and desire to return it then Target has some certain policy on such return. Target TV return policy allows you to return or exchange electronic devices such as TV 30 days after the initial purchase ( that includes brands such as Samsung, LG, VIZIO, TLC, Westinghouse, etc,)but there are exceptions for holidays and members. You can either return it online or in-store. If bought in-store it should be returned to the store and if purchased online it can be returned to the store or through the mail.
Here’s what more you need to know about the policy
Exception on 30-day return policy
As mentioned earlier, Target has a 30-day return policy after which the item cannot be returned but there are a few exceptions such as
- The return policy can be extended to 60 days for Redcard holders.
- If purchased near the holidays, the 30 -day return period will start on December 26 and not from the date of initial purchase.
- Target does not accept international returns or exchanges even in online purchases.
How do you return the TV?
If you want to return it in-store then you need to have the following
- Original receipt
- A government-issued photo ID
- Original mode of payment
In case you don’t have the original receipt, Target lets you return the item without the receipt but you need to show an alternative form of payment.
If you have paid using the following methods then the store can look up the transaction.
- Credit cards (including Mastercard, American Express, Discover, Visa)
- Debit cards
- Personal check
- Target Debit card

Target lets you return the product without the receipt up to three times in 45 days. If exceeded beyond that, the manager will have to approve it but if you have paid in cash then the store cannot check your order, and then you will be required to show the original receipt as proof of the payment.
If you are unable to return it to the store by yourself you can always contact the Target guest service to see if your order is eligible for return pickup.
