best-buy-logoOne of the more irritating things in life: the restocking fee. Sometimes it’s a flat fee, sometimes it’s a percentage. 100% of the time it’s a pain in the ass and one of those things the world is just better off without.

Best Buy took this to heart and decided to rid store policy of this bit. As of now, the restocking fee that could be as high as 15% is discontinued. Best Buy said this in their statement:

Best Buy continually listens to our customers, and they told us they want to give confidently this holiday season and every other day of the year — and with that comes easier returns. Effective Saturday, December 18, Best Buy is improving its return policy by removing restocking fees for all products except special orders. Customers can visit for further information.

If the thought of a potential restocking fee was all that was holding you back from picking up your next piece of hardware from Best Buy, get moving!
