Shop Prime Day with confidence: Amazon updated its return policy into 2021

Prime Day is finally here and it’s going to be a jam-packed 48-hour event full of sales on all the best tech you can imagine. This Prime Day, shop to your heart’s content without worrying about returning your goods. Amazon announced that it has extended its return policy through January 31, 2021. This means that any new product you buy this holiday season that doesn’t meet your expectations can be returned to Amazon until January 31 of the new year.

The extended return policy makes shopping easier for both Prime Day newbies and veterans alike. With so many deals to choose from, it’s OK to want to shop all sorts of products — products you might not even want, or gadgets you forget to research. If you do end up with a product that disappoints you, or you realize you never really needed it in the first place, the extended return policy saves you from buyer’s remorse. Now you can just ship on back whichever purchases you weren’t really sure of during Prime Day. Usually, you have around 30 days to return most products (with a few exceptions). With the updated return policy, a buyer can even try out a gadget for about a month and then return it if they’re dissatisfied.

The new return policy is also great when shopping holiday gifts. If you buy a new holiday gift for your loved one and it isn’t something they really want, now you have the extended time to send that product back and buy a new one you know that they’ll love. Black Friday is also stacked really close to Prime Day this year and Amazon is bound to see hefty shipping delays because of all the pent-up demand. With the updated return policy, you won’t even have to worry if your product gets delivered a few weeks late. You have till next year to return it! This is especially great during Prime Day because even if your products arrive by mid-November, you have plenty of time to send an item back if you’re not satisfied with it.

Shop with confidence this Prime Day and don’t hold back on taking advantage of all the deals. Amazon’s return policy has you covered.

The Boys season 3 to debut on Amazon Prime Video in June
Anthony Starr in The Boys.

Despite relatively short seasons for The Boys, Amazon Prime Video's flagship superhero series sat out  2021. However, Prime Video's new, super-short teaser reveals that The Boys season 3 will finally arrive in June. And if the new footage is any indication, Anthony Starr's Homelander is about to snap.

Warning: Spoilers ahead! Homelander may look like an all-American hero, but he has the heart of a villain. Last season, Homelander was in a relationship with the almost equally sadistic Stormfront, a literal Nazi. Homelander also took great joy in tormenting Billy Butcher with the knowledge that his wife, Becca Butcher, gave birth to Homelander's son, Ryan. But in the season 2 finale, Stormfront fatally injured Becca, and Ryan used his emerging superpowers to severely maim Stormfront. Homelander was subsequently blackmailed into letting Billy and Ryan leave. And that defeat may be why Homelander's smile for the cameras is no longer convincing.

In 2018, Netflix, DreamWorks Animation, and Mattel Studios reintroduced She-Ra in the animated series She-Ra and the Princesses of Power. But now, there's a new take on She-Ra in development at Amazon Prime Video. And for the first time, the fan-favorite warrior may be coming to a live-action show.

Variety broke the story about the She-Ra live-action series, although the project is still in a very early stage. No creative team has been put in place yet, but DreamWorks Animation will executive produce the potential series. While DreamWorks Animation also produced Princesses of Power, this will not be an adaptation of that show. Instead, Variety's source said that it would be a new story that is separate from everything that came before it.
