I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.
Unless you purchased at a store that has a specific 3-day return policy or where you signed a contract, there is no general three day grace period on all purchases. Federal law allows a person to cancel door-to-door sales or those made in a high pressure environment (i.e., not at the seller's place of business where a person can just walk out) within 3 days. They're also required to notify you of the right to cancel at the time you make the purchase. Beyond that, the sale is final, although many merchants will allow you to exchange a product or return it for store credit if you change your mind as a customer courtesy.
Here is more information on the 3-day cooling-off period.
