It's easy to get drawn in by the crowds, rush and unbelievably low prices of Black Friday. But before shoppers go out spending hundreds on the big day, they should make sure that all Black Friday purchases are easy to return. Before hitting the stores on Nov. 26, double check the return policies at your targeted retailers.

Zappos and REI's return policies remain the same for any items purchased on Black Friday. A full refund to Zappos shoppers will be granted for any return within 365 days of the original purchase. Black Friday through Cyber Monday, Zappos will also offer a VIP membership for life. The membership guarantees free overnight shipping, an offer not usually available. REI continues to follow the 100% satisfaction guarantee return policy year round, including purchases made on Black Friday. Customers may return or exchange any item purchased at REI stores, website or REI outlets.
