To check if a product is returnable, try processing a return label on the Walgreens website. You will get a notification if the product is nonreturnable.

Walgreens requests all your information just to return your item. I'm surprised they didn't ask for my SS# They want your phone#, license info and they put all of it into their computer system. I don't know about you but I don't like that one bit. There's no need for this accept to track you and drive you crazy or sell your info to another co. Don't we have enough of this gov't spying on us for no reason. So many ID's are stolen these days you can't be to careful. If you don't supply the info they won't give you your refund. This has got to stop. What happen to my right to privacy?
