So now that I have hundreds of $ worth of items from target, I just don't feel it's the right thing.

 Is one permitted to take advantage or one should avoid such mistakes?
 Is it a taos or mat'eh acum.

Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

Boruch Shepotrani?
I'd say you say that when he stops posting.
I'm not who you think I am.

Asked this in a different thread and was told to come here:

Quote
Was going to ask my LOR about this, but figured I'd get the crowd mind's opinion too. A lot of people drink Electrolyte infused drinks prior to a fast. There is a company called NUUN that makes electrolyte tablets that can be used to turn a glass of water into an electrolyte drink. The tablets work like Alka Seltzer. You drop them into the cold water, and within a minute or so they turn the water into gatorade/powerade.

What would the potential issues be with making this on Shabbos?

Was he actually looking to get hired or was he aware of this policy and was looking for a lawsuit... This would not be the first case of its kind.

Assuming he's not a cook, how is he directly Nehene for Boser B'Chalov? The Milk and meat is not his, he's not earning direct benefit from it. He's simply doing a job for a non-jewish boss and that boss pays him. Where the money comes from is not his concern, and the boss as a Goy can benefit from Boser B'Chalav

If I go to Lowe's and buy a new grill, I pay for it $800 after a 20% coupon I have.
   Now should I have misplaced the receipt or whatever reason I don't have the receipt and now try returning it they'll issue me $1000 gift card to Lowe's, what shall I do?shall I tell them I only paid $800? Or am I entitled to keep the  discount, as I won't be able to use that coupon later on?
  I originally paid $800 and my 20% coupon so effectively having $1,000 gift card is my 20% coupon and my $800.
  What's your guys take?

For the sake of argument, let's assume that they won't be able to look you up at all in their system, and that they'll give you full credit for your purchase.  I would also say that I am not expert enough in halacha to know if this constitutes an issur or not. But clearly knowing that you paid only $800 for it, and taking $1000 on the return is unethical. You should be very clear as to what you paid for it.

What is ethical - is to say that you used a 20% coupon for it - and ask if you can get a 20% discount on your next purchase (assuming it was a one-time use credit).

These coupons generally say they have no cash value

Well I can make it have cash value with my method up above.
 What's happening is im out a 20% coupon.
 But by me getting back the 20% coupon in form of a gc that allows me to use the 20% on a future purchase, it's as if i'm using the 20% coupon but now just in the form of a gc.

For the sake of argument, let's assume that they won't be able to look you up at all in their system, and that they'll give you full credit for your purchase.  I would also say that I am not expert enough in halacha to know if this constitutes an issur or not. But clearly knowing that you paid only $800 for it, and taking $1000 on the return is unethical. You should be very clear as to what you paid for it.

What is ethical - is to say that you used a 20% coupon for it - and ask if you can get a 20% discount on your next purchase (assuming it was a one-time use credit).


See above, whats wrong If I take back the 20% coupon in a gc to use for next time?
   
Eta; Push comes to shove, I went into the store, said I don't have my receipt with me, but she insisted that I use the cc I used to pay for it and have the refund go to there, vs a gc to use in the store which she made it sound like it's so complicated to create one.
 As long as you have the cc you can now have your purchases tracked and returned.
 But if I say don't have the receipt nor the cc, then I would come out ahead a few bucks.

 As well called the Beis hoyrah hotline, rabbi Felder was answering, he said as long as they don't ask your fine.
 Now not sure what he means? Does he mean that as long as they don't ask you if you have your receipt? You leave your receipt at home and the cc, so now you don't have either, or you lost or canceled one of them, so your left in this situation?

 
   
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.
