Money Back Guarantees: A list of products offering MBGs

Many products offer money back guarantees, that is, if you use the product for a specified period of time and don't feel it performs as promised, you can request your money back.

I actually rarely take a company up on the offer and caution my readers against using money back guarantees as a way to get free products (or paid extra for trying them).  When I have requested money back via a MBG, I have offered very specific reasons for it so that the company can use the reason for dissatisfaction as a way to improve their product. I submit this list as a suggestion of products to try out without risk.  Another thought:  I would bet these companies maintain a database of frequently dissatisfied customers and you don't want to be on that type of list.

With that said, below is a list of products offering MBGs.  If you know of a product that should make it on this list, please leave a comment.  Refund information is hotlinked with product name.  Many are P&G products.
