Not sure where to post this as I'm on my mobile and it seems to be limited... Admin please move to the right slot.

OK so here's my top tip of the year that I usually put on at this time of the year but have only got round to it now...

So you've been out to the Sales and saw that suit or dress you bought for the Christmas party reduced from £100 to £50. You already wore it and are gutted. You're next trip into Currys send you into despair the laptop you bought for your son has £200 knocked off. Then there's the Christmas tree reduced to £1 that you bought for £50 and I could go on. So what do you do? Well I'm sure many know that most shops have 28 days to return items and at Christmas some allow up to 2 months! So it's simple you buy all the reduced items and then take them back all sealed with your full price receipt! Now think of the savings of you were wise like me and kept all your receipts.

£50 back in the suit
£200 back on the laptop
£49 back on the Christmas tree

Total back £299 and that's just for starters. So hunt out those receipts and let us know how much you saved!

If it's allowed (not sure and only if HUKD allows)... but since I'm in the festive spirit I will send a gift to the person who shows they have got back the most money will give you up to the 31st December midnight.

But don't places like john lewis refund you the difference within a 28 day period anyway?

sounds almost like stealing to me and I am not sure why! I can never find receipts anyway so I am out...

Not sure but if they do its one of the few shops who do.

Sounds like fraud to me, in the fact that you are gaining money by deception/misrepresentation.

op here's a better tip, why not just shoplift all you want to start with as it saves money and a lesser crime than fraud if you get caught, so for you its win win

Not sure this type of behaviour is becoming of a VIP member.

Done this a few times before; most places don't mind.

Spoke to a few customer service reps on the phone and they even suggested doing it.

Strange that people find this type of behaviour bad, but they're happy to take advantage of pricing glitches etc.

Not everyone takes advantages of price glitches and fraudulently returning goods just because the price has dropped

There are many millions of people around the world with higher/better morals.

If you buy something at a store you are accepting a contract of sale - yes if the goods are faulty/not fit for purpose the contract can be cancelled any other attempt to return just makes everything cost more for you and everyone else....simples

I cannot see the slightest problem with this. Not illegal.

Sounds weel organised to me.
#13
Good idea if you are into that kind of thing. I would not think it is illegal.

Not for me though, I buy something when the price is OK in the first place so I am happy with what I have usually paid. If it becomes cheaper then so be it. But I am sure a lot of people will take this tip and use it.

If I buy something and it drops in price the next day I'm either going to get a refund and buy again, or get the price difference refunded.

They're just as legal as buying it again and returning it with the old receipt.

The store gets the same goods back and refunds you the price you bought them at the time.
Nothing wrong with it.

£200 back on a laptop? To me that says you chose poorly to start with.

Buy more wisely first time round and you won't have any buyer regrets.

I thought we already established that petitions don't work?

OP hasn't done anything wrong anyway.

My sister in law gloated that her expensive outfit she wore to a wedding was going to be returned to the store after she wore it.

It backfired on her when she came face to face with a battleaxe of a sales woman at the customer service desk who saw through her cunning plan, and refused a refund. Apparently she sniffed the dress and said she could smell perfume and spotted a stain that my sister in law had overlooked!

She gave it to my wife to flog on ebay. I thought it was hilarious at the time! :D

Be careful returning used goods as you could end up very red faced!

Thought for a moment you was going to say the sales assistant was also at the wedding and recognized her or was one of those she was gloating to.
