As you will probably be aware I do not normally write articles that are not related to growing marijuana, or the cannabis industry in general. However, these are not normal times so I felt that this was an instance where I could bring you some information of a more general nature.
Although the prime focus of 420beginner.com is the marijuana industry that does not mean we do not need and purchase the necessities of life. Food, clothing, etc. If you are anything like me I prefer to purchase my clothes accessories and footwear from a store. I know that there I can not only try on an article, and maybe get a second opinion on whether it fits correctly, suits me and that the color is right but additionally get to feel the material and assess its quality.
The current situation has made this both difficult and potentially dangerous to health, not just mine but those I come into contact with. The alternative, shopping online has always had the drawback of not being able to “try before I buy”. Yes, I am aware that most online stores offer a returns policy and a refund but that meant I had to pay for the article in advance, pay to return it and then wait for a refund.
It seems that Amazon has recognized that this is an impediment to this sector of their business and have decided to introduce Prime Wardrobe as a means to overcome the fears of buying personal items online.
With Prime Wardrobe you can now order up to 8 items and try them over a seven-day period returning any you do not want and all at no cost. The articles can be any of the following categories Clothing & Accessories, Shoes, Jewelry, Private Label, Watches, Outdoor Recreation, and Sports & Fitness
This gives you plenty of time to try on articles and get a second opinion or make absolutely sure they fit and suit you. You don’t pay anything until you confirm what items you propose to keep. The items you order will be sent in a special resealable container with a return label and all you need to do is hand it into UPS and it is sent back free of charge. There is no obligation to buy any of the items if you don’t want or don’t like them.
There are some conditions attached which are as follows:-
Prime Wardrobe is available to anyone with an eligible Prime membership so if you haven’t joined yet now is the time to do so. Just click the link.
What items are eligible for Prime Wardrobe?
Prime Wardrobe eligible items can be found in men’s, women’s, girls’, boys’, and baby clothing, shoes, and jewelry. All eligible items are shipped by Amazon.com, and they are continually adding new selections. Just look for Prime Wardrobe as you shop. It will appear on the right-hand side of the page.
You can try up to eight items at a time through Prime Wardrobe. You cannot add more than one exact item at a time to a single order (i.e., same size and color). There is no minimum dollar threshold for a Prime Wardrobe order.
Your try-on period will end 7 days from the day the last shipment of your order arrives. Before the end of the try-on period, please go to Your Orders to check out and indicate which items you are keeping and returning. You have until the end of the try-on period to postmark returns: Use the provided return label and drop off your returns at UPS.
You can check the progress of your return shipments at the Returns Center under ‘Manage returns’. You must return all items in their original packaging to ensure quick and accurate processing.
Prime Wardrobe accepts credit cards with expiration dates at least 90 days in the future. Note: Debit cards, pre-paid cards, and gift cards are not currently accepted.
You will not be charged until you complete your purchase on Amazon during the 7-day try-on period. If you do not complete checkout online at Your Orders, you will be automatically charged for all of the items in your order at the end of your 7-day try-on period. Don’t worry, you will be sent reminders along the way!
Do I need to check out online? Can’t I just send the items I don’t want back? What if I want to keep everything?
Yes, you are asked to return to Your Orders to check out before the end of your 7-day try-on period so you are only charged for the items you want to keep. If you forget to complete checkout during the 7-day try-on period, you will be automatically charged for all items in your order at the end of the try-on period. If you’ve already put your returned items in the mail when this charge occurs, you don’t need to take additional action – you will automatically be refunded when Amazon receives your returned items.
Why can’t I get my order in two days? I’m a Prime member.
In order to ship orders in as few boxes as possible, Prime Wardrobe shipping may take 4-6 business days.
When can I place my next Prime Wardrobe order?
You can place your next order once all items marked “return” during checkout have been received and processed. You can track the progress of your return at the Returns Center under ‘Manage returns’.
Can I wear clothes and then send them back?
You can try everything on at home, but do not wear the clothes out unless you intend to purchase them. Items must be returned with tags on and in their original packaging, including, hangers, polybags, shoe boxes, dust bags, and gift boxes. Items must be unused, unworn, unwashed, and undamaged. When Amazon receives a return, they will determine in their sole discretion if the products are in acceptable condition as specified in the Amazon Fashion returns policy. If returned products are determined not to be in acceptable condition, they may at their sole discretion charge you the purchase price and ship the products back to you to keep.
What if I want to return something after the 7-day try-on period?
If you change your mind, or if you have been automatically charged for items at the end of the try-on period that you did not intend to keep, you will still have 30 days from the end of the try-on period to return the items to Amazon for a refund. The items will be subject to the same Amazon Fashion 30-day return policy (Items must be returned in their original packaging, including hangers, polybags, hang tags on garments, shoe boxes, dust bags, and gift boxes. Items must be unused, unworn, unwashed, and undamaged).
So there it is! A solution to the “buying online” worry. The opportunity to try on anything you like at no cost and with the freedom to return anything you don’t want to purchase at absolutely no cost.
So we suggest you go to Amazon right away and choose the items you think will suit you or those in your family and enjoy trying them on in the comfort of your own home knowing you can return any items you don’t like free of charge.
