Walmart Clearance Return Policy

Walmart prides itself on selling products at prices that all Americans can afford. And in addition to their low-priced merchandise, you can often find clearance items at Walmart for even less!

But, can you return clearance items to Walmart? This is everything I uncovered from my research!

Walmart Clearance Return Policy

The Walmart returns policy for clearance items is the same as any other product purchased at the total price. Customers have 90 days to return clearance items in-store or online and can opt to exchange the item or receive a refund when a receipt is provided. If no receipt is provided, customers may get a store credit.

How Will I Receive My Clearance Refund From Walmart?

How you receive a refund on Walmart’s clearance items will depend on the payment method used to purchase the items.

If you bought one or more clearance items using a credit or debit card, your refund will be processed to that card as long as you have your receipt.

But, if you do not have your payment card for whatever reason, the refund will be issued to a Walmart gift card instead.

Similarly, your refund will be issued via the same payment method for clearance items purchased from Walmart using cash or a gift card.

How Long Do I Have To Return Clearance Items To Walmart?

How Long Do I Have To Return Clearance Items To Walmart?

As with most other merchandise purchased from Walmart, you should have 90 days from receiving your product to make a return.

However, some products sold at Walmart have a shorter returns window, including computers, cell phones, and airbeds. It’s worth calling your local Walmart store or customer services to find out how long you must return your clearance item.

Will I Get A Full Refund When I Return Clearance Items To Walmart?

Yes, you will get a refund for the total amount paid for a clearance item at Walmart, but only if you have your receipt. Without a receipt, you risk receiving only a partial refund.

According to customers, if Walmart further reduces a clearance item before you can return yours, you will only be refunded the amount of the newly marked-down price.

This is because you won’t be able to prove that you purchased the product for a higher price.

Can I Return Clearance Items Without A Receipt To Walmart?

You can still return clearance items to Walmart stores if you lose your receipt. You can do so with just about any Walmart product (except for these).

However, if you want a refund, it must be issued as a Walmart store credit only rather than processed to a bank card.

All you’ll need is a standard, government-issued photo ID. Walmart will store information from the ID in its secure returns activity database.

That way, they can track how often you attempt to return merchandise without a receipt. For security purposes, you can only return items to Walmart without a receipt three times within a 45-day period.
