CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- So, did you get what you wanted this Christmas, or did you get a little something that's headed back to the store ASAP?!

NBC Charlotte is looking out for you with a look at some of the more popular return policies.
So you didn't like that sweater? Not to worry, DealNews put together a list of return policies so you can get exactly what you want. But don't wait, almost all of them expire at some point.

Let's start with Amazon, if you got something shipped through Amazon between Novemeber 1 and December 31, you can return it for a full refund up until January 31, so basically, you have a month.

If you got something from Apple, bought between October 27 and Christmas Day, you have until January 7, but if you bought or received an iPhone, you only have 30 days from the date of purchase.

Anything bought at Best Buy between November 4 and Christmas Eve, can be returned for a full refund until January 24, but if you happen to be a Best Buy Reward Zone member with a silver membership, you'll have an extra 60 days on the return policy.

At CostCo, the return policy is a little bit mixed: If you bought or got a TV, a camera, computers, camcorders, iPods or cell phones, you'll have 90 days to take it back. The return policy on anything else from CostCo is you can return it at anytime.

If you shopped at Toys R Us, and I'm betting that's a good possibility, most items can be returned within 90 days, but if you bought e-readers, Netbooks, tablets, video game hardware, a no contract cell phone, and a baby monitor, then you only have 45 days.

At Target, any item bought between November 1 and Christmas Day can be returned until January 24, unless it's an item from the Target-Neimen Marcus Collection , the return date on those items is January 4.

If you shopped at Macy's this year, then know that most items can be returned within the first 180 days of purchase, however, jewelry, sterling silver flatware, bridesmaid dresses, rugs and lamps only have a 30 day return policy. Mattresses can be returned with 60 days and furniture may be returned too, but you only have three days.

Lastly, WalMart: Any item bought at WalMart during the holiday season can be returned within a 15 to 30 day window starting December 26.

Happy returning everybody and don't wait too long.
