Christmas Shopping

If i want to start my Xmas shopping this week and i start buying on-line, assuming everything arrives OK by this time next week, what happens if the present is opened and is faulty on Xmas day?

6 weeks after receipt (and i won't have opened the gift to check) will i still be entitled to refund / replacement?

Read the terms and conditions of the site you are ordering from.

... but what does the LAW state.

Some sites may have T&Cs that are at odds with the law in the same way some shops have a NO Refund policy which is totally illegal.

Why not put your dextrous fingers to work ;-)

A little skill in removing it from the packaging for testing is all that's required. Allbeit you may need to practice origami for some boxes :o)

Xmas shopping???!!!

Do it the easy way - give them a cheque plus a printed copy of the website page which shows what you WERE going to buy.

The recipient can then buy the item in question at his/her leisure in the New Year sales.

Novel idea that one,not sure the grandchildren would appreciate it though.:o)

Unless my teenage daughters have failed to tell me something, I don't have grandchildren. ;-)

Father Christmas deals with this area, surely? All he asks is that he's fed and supplied with alcohol on Christmas Eve.

No meant my grandchildren
