Would you tell me which one is correct: get a refund on product or get a refund for a product? For example:

To get a refund on the product your bought, please visit the store you bought it at with the receipt.

To get a refund for the product your bought, please visit the store you bought it at with the receipt.

Are both possible? if so, which one is more common? I've gone on the internet to see if there results for both. I found an article with get a refund on. I'm not sure if that's a standard and natural use.

    "Get a refund for something" is the most usual.

There is no "correct" preposition for linking the word refund to whatever previously-sold item is to have its purchase price refunded. But here are the four most common prepositions we might use...

Personally, I prefer Can I get a refund on [this thing I bought by mistake]?, but the actual choice isn't really important (I wouldn't be bothered by anyone using over, through, from,...).
