Have you bought clothes just to wear then return?MoneySaving Poll Results

Many big stores, such as M&S, John Lewis and many websites, have generous no-fault return policies. Some people use this as a form of 'free rentalí, you buy the clothes, wear them once, then return them Ė we've even heard of people wearing items once for a wedding.

The legality is a grey area it depends on the terms Ė but it's certainly questionable.

We try to use technology to limit voting to one per person. Occasionally, this may erroneously block a few people's votes (eg, from shared offices). Apologies for that.
