So, what happens when you lose the receipt for a pair of unopened $14.97 shorts that you’d like to return to WalMart? They offer you $3.00, take it or leave it. No receipt equals no refund for seasonal items…but the clerk was nice enough to offer me $3.00 for my inconvenience. Sorry, I’ll forego the $3.00 and give away the shorts.
Update (12/18/2004): Since this is one of the most commented on entries on my Blog, I feel the need to make a quick clarification. Yes, I’m an idiot for losing my receipt. Had they simply told me that they couldn’t give me a refund because I lost my receipt I would have been disappointed but I would have understood.
The reason I’m pissed is because instead of just saying “we can’t give you a refund without a receipt” they insulted me by offering me $3.00. It’s the principle of it. I’d rather donate the item to charity than be given $3.00 for a product they’re going to put back on the rack and sell for $14.97.
