>> reporter: it's the most wonderful time of the year for returns. this holiday season americans are predicted to return a record $100 it billion worth of gifts but not all policies are created equal. check the retailers website. some stores give you more time for holiday returns. you have until early january. so you can just double check ahead of time so you know the date you have to make your return. >> reporter: a number of the largest retailers including walmart, target, best buy, amazon extend return policies over the holidays some up to an additional 60 days. beware, not all products are included under that umbrella. one standout being electronics. what if you lost the receipt? try to make the return as soon as possible with another proof of purchase like a bank or credit card statement or try asking for store credit. >> at some stores they can look up the receipt for you and pull up the receipt in their records. the biggest trend this holiday season is more stores shifting to e-mailed revooetss and it can be helpful for consumers to
6:53 am
track their receipts that way. >> reporter: with after holiday sales gearing up if you see a better deal you might be able to get some cash back on something you already bought. >> there are some ways in certain cases to get a refund. for example, if you opted into a program like parabis or your credit card offers the price protection within the time limit, you can sometimes get a refund. it's always worth going to the store and asking because they might say yes, and give you the price difference. >> reporter: turn unwanted gift cards into cash with apps like race and cardpool, which has kiosks inside stores like target where you can turn your gift card into cash. rebecca jarvis, abc news, new york. next on "abc 7 mornings," take a look, it's a bit of a christmas catastrophe. see how one boy used his present to torch his front yard.
