Funny how you can get charged right away when you make purchases.
But when you make a return it can take forever.
I returned a pair of shoes at payless once.
A week later, still no refund so I called their headquarters center.
They told me "with a nasty attitude" they have 90 days to refund.
But for most stores it usually just takes a couple of days.
Know that some merchants also take a long time to charge your account.
Never go by your account balance.
Try to keep a check register one of these days.
You can google excel check register worksheet .xls if you have excel.
