You better do a bit more research on Amazons return policy, even though they will take most items back for returns up to 30 days, they also will not always pay for the return shipping for "any reason" returns.
Amazon simply does not pay for return shipping in all cases, if they make a mistake and send you the wrong item, or if the item is defective, then yes they will. But if it's a matter where you made the mistake, or you just decided to change your mind, then they don't. Also if the item is from a Amazon vendor, and not direct from Amazon, they will not pay the return shipping.
"General Returns Policy
You may return new, unopened items sold and fulfilled by Amazon.com within 30 days of delivery for a full refund. Items should be returned in their original product packaging. We'll also pay the return shipping costs if the return is a result of our error. Just visit our online Returns Center, and we will guide you through the process and even supply you with a return mailing label you can print out.
Amazon.com does not accept returns of the following items:
Items that are classified as hazardous materials or use flammable liquids or gases
Computer laptops and desktops more than 30 days after delivery
Any product missing the serial number or UPC
Downloadable software products
Gift cards and gift certificates
Pay As You Go (or prepaid) phone cards
Prepaid game cards (World of Warcraft, Xbox 360 Live, Wii Points, etc.)
Items purchased from sellers other than Amazon.com
Some Jewelry orders (Learn more)
Grocery products and Gourmet gift baskets cannot be returned; however, Amazon.com will issue a full refund for damaged products sold by Amazon.com
Partial Refunds will be issued for the following items:
Most items that are returned more than 30 days after delivery
Any item that has obvious signs of use
Any opened laptop or desktop computer. A 15% restocking fee will apply
Any CD, DVD, VHS tape, software, video game, cassette tape, or vinyl record that has been opened/taken out of its plastic wrap. (If you discover that the item is defective after the package is opened, a full refund or replacement will still be granted)
Any item not returned in the condition it was received
To find out more about how refunds are calculated, visit our Refunds page.
If you received a faulty item and need to exchange it for the same item, visit our Returns Center to request a replacement. If you would like to exchange an item for a different one, please return the original item through our online Returns Center (you will be refunded your original purchase price once we receive the item) and place another order for the item you wish to purchase. You do not have to wait for us to receive the original item before placing the new order.
Please note that it takes us 3 to 5 business days to process returns once they arrive at our Returns Center. You can view completed returns and refunds by visiting Your Account and accessing the relevant order summary.
Items Purchased from Other Sellers
As the Amazon.com Web site offers items for sale both by Amazon.com and by registered third-party sellers, it is important in the returns process to know from whom the item was purchased.
Visit Your Account and view the order. Click on the order number and the seller is listed at the top of your order information.
If the item to be returned was not sold by Amazon.com, you will need to contact the seller directly or follow the specific Amazon Merchant's return instructions found in the order summary of Your Account.
For more about third-party seller return policies and additional instructions, visit the following pages:
Amazon Merchants Returns (for items sold by companies such as Macy's or Eddie Bauer)
Amazon Marketplace Returns (for new, used, or collectible items sold by individual sellers through Amazon Marketplace)
Amazon.com subsidiaries operating on third-party platforms, such as Warehouse Deals, may have different policies. Merchant policies are accessible before ordering, wherever product details are made available."
And as for the label that you print out from Amazon for a pre-paid shipping return.
Also read the exclusions on them paying for the return shipping!
"Using our Return Mailing Label
The return mailing labels obtained from our online Returns Center are valid only for returns shipped within the U.S.
Each return mailing label is coded for a specific shipment. Please do not include items from other orders, or other shipments from the same order, in the same box, or you will not receive the correct refund. Each shipment must be returned using a separate mailing label.
If you use this mailing label and the return is a result of our error (you received an incorrect or defective item, etc.), we'll pay the return shipping costs.
If you use this mailing label and your return is not the result of our error, the shipping cost of that returned item will be deducted from your refund. The amount deducted will be equivalent to our standard shipping cost for that item."
