3 for 2 on Paint but take 1 back for a full refund. So 2 for 1. @ Homebase

I bought 3 tins of paint yesterday, one of which was free, for £29.98. I took an unused one back today for a £14.99 refund. Hence 2 for 1 on my paint. This was all instore. It was dulux paint.
Hope it helps someone else with their easter decorating.

I've done it a few times. No one has ever quibbled it. Any money back is a bonus when decorating.
Try if you wish, if not, don't!

Why not take another one back, then it'll be 1 for 0 :-D

To buy 3 with the intention of taking 1 back is dishonest - and certainly not a deal.

so if you bought 3 thinking youd need them and only used 2 would you keep the other 1 to go off in the shed or take it back? i know what i would do!

this is like goining in and seeing a buy one get one free picking up the item and walking out the shop its theft my freind

I had the intention of using them all but didn't need to. I took it back expecting maybe a third back as it was 3 for 2 or nothing but they gave it all. I appreciate it's not a deal but didn't know where to place it.

Fair enough if they let you. But they shouldn't have let you! You paid nothing for it, so your refund should have been nothing. I used to work in a DIY store (early Nineties); there's no way I would have paid out!

In misc as a 'heads up' would have been better
