Can You Return A LCD To Curry's For A Refund?

Just found out that my uncle bought an Sony LCD from their local Curry's and got absolutely ripped off. :x

He bought this last Friday and payed £400 (with 5 year cover) more than he should have done, as John Lewis are doing the same TV with 5 year guarantee for £1400. Bless him, he hasn't a clue about prices. He could have got it online with my help for around £1000.

Anyone know what his rights are on this and whether he can get a full refund on this?

i hjave taken stuff back to comet before and their happy to give you a refund within 28 days policy, but im sure with currys they will just give you a receipt with the amount you spent on the LCD to spend in the store again.

reckon that this only applies to online orders.

My mate just bought an LG LCD for £999 from Currys. After calling down to the house to brag about it, I done a quick HUKDeals search and using vouchers on her discovered that I could get it for him for £744 from dixons with egg discount. Told him to take it back and say there was a slight problem with sound/picture or the likes, but he's not that way inclined.

Anyway, hes not bragging much now.

Same TV is on Currys website for £899

I thought that 7 days would apply to instore purchases as online orders are covered by a 14 day cooling off period anyway.

if its in the original packaging and not been used currys have to take it back ( if its still in the time limit period ithink that is 2 weeks)

Sorry, forgot to add it's been used, as it was installed and set up on day of purchase last Friday.

What about refunding the difference with John Lewis?

If he uses the line "it's got a faulty picture", won't they just replace it?

AFAIR, Currys won't take back anything which was unpacked. I recently had similar discussion with Currys store manager and only after I pointed out that the device I've bought was not fit for purpose he agreed to take it back.

I'm pretty sure that online you have a 7 day cooling off period, excluding certain perishable goods like flowers.
Otherwise, it's sold as seen.

However you are able to take it back to the store if there were any faults/blemishes or as Kommunist says, it's not fit for purpose. Shop have to give a refund.
