    How long does it take for a store to refund/give credit back to a debit?

    I'm not sure if my question makes sense..but this is what happened... I recently returned an item at H&M and asked for a refund, which is supposed to give me back credit on my debit card. But...when i checked my transaction history on WaMu it did not show up...am i supposed to wait at least 24 hours? If it doesn't show up in at least 24 hours..what should i do? >< thanks in advance!

    • It really varies per store. Some stores tell you it might not show up until your next billing cycle! It really depends on the store's policies. I've returned things and have shown a credit that same day, others have taken 2 or more weeks to get my credit. Call that store and ask them how long it will take to show up, they should know. I know with the store I work at , it depends on when we settle our Visa/MC accounts. If we settle them daily, then all those transactions will go through Visa or MC, otherwise those transactions don't go through or process until we settle the accounts. Definatly check with your store's policies.

    • They usually tell me 10-14 business days but its usually there in a week. It wouldn't be there in 24 hours.

    • I am totally disgusted with the H&M online service. First I had to wait ten days for the item ordered, when received it was incorrect size. I have returned the item and TWENTY DAYS later am still waiting for my card to be refunded. After several emails to and from H&M customer services I am told refunds take up to 21 days as they have to go back to Sweden to be processed?? I find it hard to believe they can't be dealt with here in the UK as they have an office in London! They have now also asked for me to scan and copy proof of the item being returned. A nightmare from start to finish and would never order from H&M again! People be warned!
