Hello, my name is Jeanine Edwards. I’m the editor of and I am also a shopping bulimic.

Okay, not to poke fun at two very serious issues, but yes that was me on the Today Show this morning talking about my tendency to buy tons of things online… only to return most of it. Sound familiar? If you have the tendency to binge spend, and then in a wave of regret try to get your money back, you should probably read this article.

But because I know firsthand how difficult it is to actually deal with this “problem,” I also wanted to share my top sites for “binge” shopping. Why my faves? Because they make returning so easy.

1. Not only does Zappos offer free shipping when you order, but if you don’t like the item when it arrives–or have a case of buyer’s remorse–they also cover the return shipping up to 365 days after your purchase.

2. Like Zappos, also offers free shipping both ways. What I also love about, though, is that they offer free overnight shipping on new styles.

3. Shopbop’s return policy isn’t as good as Zappos or Endless, but it’s still good. They offer free shipping and free return shipping for up to 15 days after your order date.

4. Gap, Old Navy, Banana Republic: These Gap brands don’t offer free return shipping, but it is a breeze to return something you’ve ordered online to your local store.
