Certain items such as televisions, cellular phones, camcorders, computers, cameras and projectors need to to be returned within 90 days of purchase to be considered for a refund.

Consumers who are unable to visit one of Costco's worldwide warehouses can call the retail giant's customer service number for assistance returning the item via United Parcel Service. Having the order number handy will help consumers to quicken the refund or exchange process on these items. Merchandise that is being returned will need to be packaged in the original packing material and taken to the nearest UPS facility for shipment.

It never did that and its junk it virtually looks brand new I dont have the receipt but someone told me they would likely return it. Would costco return this item?

Almost every time I make a return to the Tigard, OR Costco, they treat me like a criminal, usually for items between $10-$20.
I had the worst customer service experience today with Christina. She refused to listen, repeatedly cut me off when I tried to explain the mistake she made, and accused me of lying. Over $15 of defective printer ink refills. Honestly, it was almost comical!
I don't know why this Costco is so hostile about returns. The company boasts about its fabulous return policy with a huge sign right on the wall next to merchandise returns, but this particular employee clearly does not understand this company policy or her role in customer service.

I went to buy a sofa i fell in love with at Costco and they informed me there was only ONE left in a store quite a ways ...and they couldn't reserve it. I had to go down in person.
