Have You ever purchased an item which looks great on the Internet or spectacular in a store but doesn’t look as great once You remove its packaging at home? What if the retailer where You purchased the item will not accept the return?
Return Protection may be able to assist You. You are eligible for Return Protection when You charge the entire cost of an item to Your Revolut Account and/or rewards programs associated with Your Account.
If You are disappointed with an item, within ninety (90) days from the date of purchase, and the retailer will not accept a return, You can be reimbursed for the purchase price, up to three hundred dollars ($300.00) per item of personal property, and an annual maximum of six hundred dollars ($600.00) per Account.
The Return Protection benefit is supplemental to, and in excess of, any valid and collectible avenue of recovery available to You, the eligible cardholder. The Benefit Administrator will reimburse the excess amount, once all other coverage has been exhausted, up to the coverage amount.
