Recently, Amazon’s official website announced that it provides thousands of free return services for millions of items. Amazon is committed to simplifying online purchases and returns.
Of the millions of items currently purchased on Amazon in the U.S., most customers have at least one free return option.
It is understood that, now, most Amazon returns are easier than ever, no boxes required. After customers get the QR code from the Amazon return center, there is no need for a box or label, just hand the item to the store associate, and they will pack and ship it for free.
Amazon's free box-free returns can be obtained by:
First, customers can easily return eligible products at Amazon's brick-and-mortar stores across the United States. Customers just need to enter the store, show the QR code to the staff, and hand over the package in the original manufacturer's packaging.
Customers can also return items for free at AmazonFresh Pickup and Amazon Hub Locker+ locations, but customers will need to put their items in a box or box them with the materials provided.
Second, Amazon customers can return eligible items for free at 1,150 Kohl's locations in 48 states, without a box.
Third, Amazon Whole Foods also offers box-free returns, Locker and Locker+ options, with more options coming soon.
Fourth, Amazon customers can also choose to return eligible items for free at more than 4,768 UPS stores in the United States, most of which do not require a box.
Most items fulfilled by Amazon are eligible for the free return option. For customers who prefer to choose the packaged shipping option, this option will remain in addition to other options, some of which may be subject to a fee.
All return options will be clearly displayed in the Returns Center to ensure customers can choose the available option that best suits their needs.
It is worth mentioning that Amazon recently began using Prime Air drones to deliver goods in Rockford, California, and College Station, Texas. Amazon hopes to use feedback from the service to improve operations and eventually roll out the service nationwide.
