    Is this fraud?

    I recently purchased a hdd of asda direct and had it delivered to my local store, however, it is no longer needed!
    I can return it and get a full refund, however another local store sells the hdd for £10 more, and if I return it fully sealed without a reciept I can get the money i paid + £10 more on a gift card..
    However obviously I don't want to do this if it's fraud, so there's my question
    Cheers

    either way they still make money

    Is it really worth it for a tenner?

    Hang on, just re-read it. Is it another Asda store? If so, then it's not fraud, you are returning it to the same retailer. And if it's not out of your way, then why not get an extra £10?
    Although you will need your receipt which will have the price you paid on it.

    And another edit - if you return it without a receipt then you will get a gift card for the whole amount, and do you really want to spend all that money in Asda?

    Strange that they sell it for more, are you sure its not just marked up as more but scans at same price?

    Yes, its fraud. Plain and simple...lol but good luck!

    You want to return it to a store you never even bought one from?

    Buy from A return to B?

    Basically, it was £10 cheaper on the internet!

    How can you return it without a receipt? They would want proof it was bought from them, no?

    Nope, they said as long as the item's fully sealed they can put the refund on a gift card :whistling:

    nope-not at asda-without a receipt they will refund the price it is CURRENTLY on their system,so if you bought at a higher price and its now reduced you lose out. They may not offer a cash refund without a receipt tho-may only offer vouchers,but they will take it back-company policy.

    Of course it is fraud. You are obtaining something by deception. You are entitled to a refund (original price paid) or a replacement.

    It's store policy at ASDA yeah, however some may accept a return dependant on the manager, most asda living stores do I think
