Will Bestbuy add the shipping fee if you return an item and order total < $35 after refund?

I purchased 2 items from Best buy online, and because the total is over $35, I got free shipping. Now I want to return one of the items (which brings the total down to less than $35). Will they add the shipping fee now when they calculate the refund? Anyone with similar experience?

No they won't tack on the shipping fee if you decide to return something from your order, bringing you below the minimum free shipping threshold. I don't know any store that does to be honest.

Nope but factor in gas, car mileage, calories spent, and time wasted

Nope and this is often abused, which likely would result in higher min salary amount or change in policy.

Just remember that holiday season generally means more lines @ customer service (and insane number right after xmas).

Op, like most buyers don't care.
A life spent making mistakes is not only more memorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.

Nope like everyone else mentioned. It's like that across most if not all the stores.
