When a crazy shopper returned her Christmas tree to Costco this January for a refund, (because it was “dead”), she managed to get her money back in full despite taking the dead fir back a full 10 days after Christmas.
An unimpressed shopper Scott Bentley, who was stuck in a line behind her.
He shared the photo on Facebook, writing: “I can’t make this stuff up.
“Woman in line at Costco, totally nonchalant, to return her Christmas tree ‘because it is dead’ on January 4. If I didn’t see it, I wouldn’t believe that someone had so little moral values or lack of conscience.”
“Heartbreaking to think she may have needed that money so much, she lost all self-respect and dignity for it.”
“She did get a refund – not happily though. It was questioned, verified purchase on her account and she was shamed to a small degree… But I don’t think it fazed her because she has no conscience.”
“She didn’t seem to mind that I took a photo and said ‘Are you serious?!?.’”
The woman was then slammed on social media calling her “cheap” and “brazen.”
One person wrote: “People like this are miserable. Seriously, how cheap can you be?”
While another said: “Sister works for Costco, can confirm. People do this all the time. They will even demand a refund without bringing back the tree.”
Costco is known for its generous returns policies, basically, any item able to be refunded at any time, except electronics, have a 90-day limit.
According to a Reddit post, employees have returned a range of items, including an empty wine bottle, old fish, a used chicken coop and photo prints.
