  • L.L.Bean has long been known for its lifetime return policy, which it ended in February.
  • The store now offers a still-generous one-year window for returns. 
  • It’s not the only US retailer with an extremely generous return policy.

In February, L.L.Bean ended its legendary lifetime return policy to clamp down on customers who were taking advantage and using it to replace heavily worn products.

“Increasingly, a small, but growing number of customers have been interpreting our guarantee well beyond its original intent. Some view it as a lifetime product replacement program, expecting refunds for heavily worn products used over many years,” the company’s executive chairman, Shawn O. Gorman, wrote in an email announcing the policy changes to customers. 

But it isn’t all doom and gloom for L.L.Bean customers, as the store still offers a very reasonable one-year window for returns. 

And it’s not alone — a whole host of US retailers offer customers incredible return policies.
