Return in Spades usually has 2 meanings that are similar. first Spades is a suit in the card deck and Spades are the Highest ranked suit.

return in spades means the return is higher than what is put out or invested. you invest $200.00 but the return is in Spades $2000.00!

however 'return in spades' usually means revenge. someone will return or pay back in spades to someone for something they did to them. let's say you sucker punch me in the face. i pay you back in spades by blasting you back in the face with a Baseball bat.

spades means you trump something or 'one up it' spades are always something 'higher.'
