    I was reading something in our returns department that they will change the return policy on the back of the reciepts that will now reflect new return policy rules which now include restocking fees on some products. There will also be a sticker that tells the customer that the product carries a restocking fee. Anyone know a lil bit more about these no return policy's?Fry's is corrupt I am here to talk about it.

    The restocking fees apply to GPS Units. A lot of customers were buying GPS's for a trip and returning them after one use. There is now a 15% restocking fee if the box has been opened. The back of the receipt has been changed to reflect the new policy. There is also a sticker placed on the box that lets customers know there is a 15% restocking fee, so when you open it you have to tear the sticker. To my knowledge all other return policies have been left unchanged.

    I wonder why Fry's doesn't apply a restocking to other products that usually get a high percentage of returns.  
     
    Fry's does get more business because of their lenient return policy.the wheels on the bus go round and round, round and round

    I worked in software and never saw a re-stocking fee on the Wii, Frys knows any that get returned will sell. We had a couple returned and just put them on the podium with the bundle sign. The longest it took to sell one was about 20 minutes. GPS unit dont have that sale power so i can see why a fee on them.:face-monkey:We are the music makers, we are the dreamers of dreams

    Also air conditioners in the summer months...people like to buy them for the 1 week long heatwave, then return them...the store I work at made the return policy real strict...no returns if opened unless broken and then only for an exchange for the same item.

    Last i've heard, they're THINKING about applying restocking fees on monitors due to extremely high return volume for stupid reasons.  
     
    Wonder why they're not thinking about laptop returns? Think about competition :)

    Fry's should have no restocking fee if you choose to receive store credit. Otherwise refunds should carry a 15% restocking fee.i am a worm.

    I wish projectors had restocking fees as well.. because a lot of them are just getting "borrowed." You can tell when the first or second question is "what is your return policy?/is there a restocking fee?" especially when they are using it for a presentation. and of course they have to ask twenty million questions about them as well.. I wish I could just walk away, but then they'll just moan and complain about not getting help.  
     
    Laptops/desktops I have no problem with no restocking fees.. but we should charge an idiot fee to those who think they can buy a $500 laptop to play the newest and greatest games out there.. hard especially when some people are having trouble playing crysis on their desktops.. But i try to match it up as close as possible, but you never know if it will really suit you until you try it in the real world with the programs you will be running on it.I'm crushing your head... You flathead!

    Are you saying we should inplement them on laptops? I dont believe we should. The only reason I love the restocking fee on Projectors was only because of the fact that people were only buying them to use them for one presentation and then returning them afterwards.. and of course even though they did this, they wasted your time gmaby asking 20 million questions and the first question was always "How long do I have to return it?"  
     
    Laptops never had that problem unless you didn't sell them the right laptop to begin with.I'm crushing your head... You flathead!

    the gift receipts still say "happy holidays!!" on them.  
     
    maybe they're not offered because they suppose it's not necessary since not many things purchased are for gifts at this time of year.  
     
    though, they're usually pushed in the holiday seasons. security purposes. outside of holiday season they're pretty useless; you could just use the original receipt.

    I am not bothered by the concept of a restocking fee, but I don't think that it needs to be 15% to stop frivolous purchases that people simply turn around and return. 5% restocking on a $600 projector would be $30. Not a huge amount of money, but it is enough to discourage people from thinking of it as a free rental. Some people would still buy it knowing that unless something was wrong with it that it would cost them 5% of the purchase price to return it, but going from 0% to 5% would be enough to scare away most people who have no intention on keeping it. What is it with restocking fees either being 0% or 15%?  
     
    I think charging 15% to cash out the GC would be an interesting alternative. Give them a GC that is 85% refundable and 15% non-refundable. People who are genuinely interested in purchasing a projector and simply picked the wrong product are going to turn around and buy a different model. Such a policy wouldn't hurt them provided that they could find the model they wanted.  
     
    I mentioned the partial non-refundable GC for certain classes of items idea about a year ago when I worked for Fry's, but my pointy hair manager said that it wasn't possible. That was fairly stupid considering that Fry's pushes out updates to their in-house software every week. They added support for debit, Amex, gift cards, and have changed return policies several times. Who says they couldn't make the system allow for that as well?  
     
    Quite honestly, if Fry's starts getting much more customer unfriendly on return policies I am just going to buy everything I don't need today online. Generally speaking I don't see much added value to buying it in-store. Fry's doesn't demo half of the stuff I am interested in and even some of stuff that they do demo are very poor demos.

    That's a bad choice... Bad bad bad.. Trust me.. you can sale more laptops without having the restocking fee on them.. I use the "You have 2 weeks to try it out, if you don't like it, you can bring it back and you don't have to worry about a restocking fee." all the time and it works.. I hardly ever get any of them coming back as well..  
     
    If you are getting a lot of laptops returned, you may want to make sure you are qualifying your customer first and making sure what you are selling them will do what they want it to do.  
     
     
    I don't see many people abusing the return system on laptops as they were on Projectors... I would say it's best to let them try out the laptop because then they can actually try what they need to use the laptop first. Otherwise, you will lose sales because they are not sure if it will do what they need it to do.. or they will ask, "Can I bring in my software and try to use it on your demo?" I think not having a restocking fee on laptops is a good idea.. having them on them.. BAD!I'm crushing your head... You flathead!
