I am a Sears Associate of 2 years, and handle many returns. The return policy changed a few months ago, I think September. It is now 30 days regardless of department, and you must have receipt, or Shop Your Way membership so we can look up the records. Mattresses and electronics have a stricter return policy for obvious reasons. Usually we try to work with people and spend alot of time trying to find their proof of purchase in our system, but if we can't find it, there is nothing we can do. We also have to keep an eye out for return fraud. Each type of item has its own warranty, and should be explained to you when you purchase the product. Sears Holdings Corporation consists of several companies/divisions, such as Sears, Sears Hometown Stores, Sears Outlet, Sears Appliance Showroom, KMart, Sears.com, Sears Parts Direct, Craftsman, Kenmore, etc. Each company has their own guidelines for return policies. Sears.com has many affiliates that sell through our website, and have return policies specific to that seller. For example, Sears Parts Direct can accept returns if you contact them and have them send you a return label. We can help you with that at store level if you have problems with email, but it's best to contact that company/division directly. We don't have access to the other divisions' records, and we have to wait on the phone like you would. In addition, you have the option to buy extra protection, which takes some hassles out of repairs and returns. I hope my 2 years of training have helped some people here, thank you for reading.
