I have seen the sentence below somewhere.

(1) If you are not satisfied with your purchase, you're welcome to get a refund one week from the date of purchase.


Some of my non-native English speaking friends and I think "one week from the date of purchase" means within one week of the date of purchase. My other friends think it means one week after the date of purchase.

What do you think it means? Thank you very much for your help.

It is not something a native speaker would write.

Grammatically it does mean on that day only, but that makes no sense.


You would say "up to', 'within' etc. Even 'after' (give it time to work first).
Not 'one week from'. That makes no sense.
