Amid concerns that Costco’s ‘bottomless’ or ‘endless’ return policy was impacting margins and ultimately its stock price, the warehouse retailer today revised its Consumer Electronics return policy to reflect a 90 day window. I’ve emailed their customer service department to see if consumers that purchased electronic devices (defined as Televisions, computers, cameras, camcorders, iPOD/MP3 players and cellular phones) prior to the change would be ‘grandfathered’ into the old return policy. Stay tuned for more details.

UPDATE: We found a Costco memorandum indicating that those who purchased before the new policy rollout will be grandfathered into the old policy. Furthermore, Costco will extend the manufacture’s warranty by 2 years for those purchasing under the new return policy.  See the memorandum just below for complete details.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
