The Texas Attorney General's office addresses the 3-day right to cancel in Texas on their website, but they explain that the law is very specific and does not apply to most consumer purchases:

Many consumers are under the impression that they have a 3-day right to cancel any and all consumer purchases. However, this is not true. The right to cancel law applies only to very specific situations.

If the information from the Attorney General does not answer your question, take a look at our research guide on the cancellation of certain consumer contracts. On that page we highlight Texas laws that allow for a cancellation or "cooling off" period for specific transactions or purchases — e.g., timeshares, health spas, home equity loans, motor vehicle installment sales, certain telephone solicitation purchases, manufactured home purchases, "lease to own" house contracts. If you still have questions about a purchase or contract, it would be best to consult with an attorney for advice specific to your situation.
