Cupertino, California – Shoppers who are fed up with missing exchange or return deadlines, or are frustrated at losing their original receipts when they want to take an item back to the store, can now download the award-winning free app ReturnGuru and permanently put their worries to rest.
The latest version of the App also lets the users browse and review the return policies for all major retailers in US and Canada from within the App, a useful feature given the complex and changing return policies during the upcoming holiday season. Also, for every receipt that is tracked by returnGuru, the entire return policy for that store is readily available through a click of a button.
ReturnGuru, winner of both the TiE Oregon PitchFest and the Portland Startup Weekend, respectively, is a remarkable app that lets iPhone, iPad or iPod touch users take a photo of their original receipt. ReturnGuru then processes the receipt’s data, applies the store’s return policy, and sends the users friendly, timely reminders to let them know that the exchange or return deadline is approaching. And for online purchases, users simply forward their e-receipt via email from their registered email address, and ReturnGuru takes care of the rest.
“People can lose hundreds or even thousands of dollars when they either miss a store’s exchange or return deadline, or when they lose their original receipt,” commented Balki Kodarapu of ReturnGuru Inc. “Fortunately, ReturnGuru solves that problem in a simple and sophisticated way. ReturnGuru is like having a personal Receipt Manager on your mobile device 24 hours a day!”

ReturnGuru was conceived when founder Balki walked into his garage one day. He saw a pair of shoes lying in a corner that his wife never wore. He then thought of 100s of other items stashed all over the house that their family never got to use. So a bulb went off in his head and he created returnGuru over that weekend with the help of a bunch of friends at Startup Weekend Portland. Since then, returnGuru has won multiple startup competitions, was featured in many national publications From the day it was created, returnGuru’s sole mission has been to help Americans organize their receipts/returns to save a ton of money!
