PSA: Store Credit No' Mo'

Monday, February 20, 2017

This is a public service announcement - unsponsored (obviously).

Forever21 has changed their return policy. You now get a full REFUND!

For the longest time, I would binge purchase clothes off the website. The flashing lights, cheap prices, and trendy pieces would always get me. Inevitably after the high wore off I was stuck with a box of hideous items, three sizes too small, all of varying quality.

Now I'm not going to lie, there have been a few keepers...but most of the time I'm just too indifferent to go and make a return, knowing full well I'd only get store credit. After receiving said store credit, the entire cycle would start all over agin.

(true story: while in college I rotated through the same store credit my entire sophomore year - you should all be impressed)


After being seduced into purchasing a pair of boyfriend jeans that I completely did not need I approached the counter to make my purchase. Nothing like waiting in line behind a gaggle of middle school girls, knowing that you are DEFINITELY old enough to be their teacher (because you are) to make you rethink your purchase... however, it didn't stop me and the boyfriend jeans prevailed.

The girls behind the counter at F21 always ask you the SAME. EXACT. QUESTION.

"Are you familiar with our return policy?"

And I always respond defeated, "yeah, it's store credit only".

This time though the girl squeaked "NOPE! It's actually full refund as long as you have your receipt and the tags are attached"

I was in shock.

I was so happy because remember when I mentioned being seduced by "a" pair of boyfriend jeans? Yeah...try making that about five pairs. Oops.

Who cares though?! If I hate 'em, I'll return 'em.

I know I'm not the only one that has been sucked down the Forever21 rabbit hole...share in the comments below! #judgefreezone
