Costco returns

Buy a Christmas tree at Costco, and return it in January because it's dead.

:lol2:

A crazy shopper returned her Christmas tree to Costco this January for a refund — because it was “dead.”

Bizarrely, the woman apparently managed to get her money back in full despite taking the battered fir back a full 10 days after Dec. 25.

She was snapped at the checkout of the store in Santa Clara, Calif., by unimpressed shopper Scott Bentley, who was stuck in a line behind her.

He shared the photo on Facebook, writing: “I can’t make this stuff up.

“Woman in line at Costco, totally nonchalant, to return her Christmas tree ‘because it is dead’ on January 4.

“If I didn’t see it, I wouldn’t believe that someone had so little moral values or lack of conscience.

“Heartbreaking to think she may have needed that money so much, she lost all self respect and dignity for it.

“She did get a refund – not happily though. It was questioned, verified purchase on her account and she was shamed to a small degree… But I don’t think it fazed her because she has no conscience.

Costco will keep track of your returns, and if they feel that you are abusing the policy, they will put a do not renew notice on your membership. So if she's had other excessive returns in the past, when her membership expires she will likely find herself unable to renew it.
The problem with having an open mind is that people keep trying to put things in it.

It’s all built into the prices we pay. Doesn’t hurt Costco one bit, except that they have to charge a little more.

I know that your company deals with Amazon, are you also a vendor for Costco? It would be interesting to compare notes.

My experience with Costco has been that the vendor or manufacturer eats the return entirely.
