HARRISBURG --  If you ended up with a gift that’s not exactly perfect for you, you will not be alone if you try to return those gifts. 

However, expect retailers to be more strict with their return policies. 

While the holiday shopping rush may be over, the holiday return dash will soon gain momentum. 

The National Retail Federation reports retailers lose more than $9 billion each year in return frauds; a third of that is accounted for during the holiday season.
 
Upon returning a gift, consumer reports suggests checking out the length of the return window, keep in mind some things – like electronics – may have a restocking fee. Also, movies and or video games cannot be returned once opened. 

Consumer Reports also suggests carrying a state-issued identification card, like a driver’s license, along to the store especially if you are returning the gift with no receipt.
