Spending enough to get free delivery...but?

Is it ethical to order , lets say £25 at a website store to ensure free delivery; but you only want a product valued at £6.00. To then return £19 of the order for a refund. Ensuring free delivery and free retuens.

I am just a little dismayed to have to pay as much for p&p as the product itself. If they allowed the consumer to take back the goods to a store then I would be happy to do that.


how much is delivery?

Usually if you pay for delivery its not free to return goods anyway unless its faulty or the wrong item .

What store is it if you don't mind me asking.

Well i don't see any reason why you can't do what you said in the OP.

not ethical but a good idea

Is it Tesco? If so just go for it :giggle:

Go ahead.:thumbsup:

I don't think that there is an ethical or moral dimension to this - anyway you might just decide to keep the'extra item'.

Thanks to all of you above that responded.

i wouldnt feel morally challenged if it were a large store.. not sure i'd be that bothered to do it though! Wouldn't do it to a smaller retailer.
