Why you Should Always Check the Return Policy

For some reason I have stopped checking return policies, I mean, aren’t they all pretty much the same (each gives you a specified number of days to return the item if you are not satisfied) — or so I thought.

I order so much online and last week while I was placing an order on a popular website (a website that I have ordered from in the past) – I discovered something very disturbing about their return policy, so I wanted to share this experience will all of you.

So, I just started using a new skincare line through a discovery kit I purchased. Since I liked the items so much, I decided to buy the full sizes. While placing my order, I started to get a little concerned because of the amount of money I was going to spend on the new products — and what if I didn’t like them once I got the full sizes. So something told me that before spending the money, that I should check the return policy — just to see how I would return the items if I needed to.

Now, as I said, I have ordered from this website in the past, all items I already used, so I never even thought to check the return policy.

After reading the return policy, I was absolutely shocked — this particular website only takes returns if the item has not been opened (or used). I thought that I must not be reading the policy correctly, so I called the company to inquire — and sure enough I read it right.

Needless to say, I did not place an order. I know that if I order anything from that website, I will only order items that I already use and have no intention of returning.

If I had ordered those products and didn’t like them, I would have been out over $100 — too big of a risk for me. From now on, I will always check the return policy before I place an order (even if I have already ordered from them in the past).

Where to Find a Charcoal Shower Filter

Ever since I heard Dr. Oz on Oprah talking about how important it was to use a charcoal filter in your shower head, I have been trying to find one. Dr. Oz said that you could find a charcoal filter anywhere, but he didn’t mention any stores by name.

Whether you are trying to find a new shower head with a charcoal filter built in or a charcoal filter for your existing shower head, there are a number of brands out there from which you can choose. Two of the popular brands of charcoal shower filters are Culligan and Sprite – both are available online as well as at a number of home supply stores. I have listed information and links below that may help you in your search for the right charcoal shower filter for you.

If you decide to buy a charcoal shower filter, you need to remember to change the filter every so many months (as specified by the manufacturer). So keep in mind that you will incur an additional charge for the filter. The problem that I have encountered is that I seem to forget when I put the new filter in, so I have no idea when I should replace it. I tried putting a reminder on my calendar, but that didn’t seem to help much. What I ended up doing was buying my new filter through Amazon’s Subscribe & Save Program. I set the preferences to ship me a new filter every 6 months, that way, I know when the new filter arrives, I have to change it.
