i bought 3 pair of clarks shoes from shoes.com at 20% off (at $100 - $120 a pair - it adds up)
it seems they drop shipped it directly from clarks.
i didnt want 2 pairs, so i returned it directly to a clarks b &m
apparently the reciept i gave them didnt work so they gave me the full price (before sale as well) i mentioned then that i had used a coupon and they told me, well theres nothing we can do - we cant look it up
so i got the money back for 2 pair that was the same amount as 3 pair (a $100 pair of shoes for free)

i think its wrong to return to a store, davka to get more money back bec they cant trace it.

Reminds me of the following quote:

Quote from: Abraham Lincoln
The trouble with quotes on the internet is that itís difficult to discern whether or not they are genuine.

:) we were discussing what taus akum is though

They didn't have this kind of commerce (and thus this kind of "T'aus") in the Rambam's times.

I would think if you do it with all the right intentions, i.e. lost the receipt then taht would be considered Taus Akum, which will beg the question, akum, meaning the owner of the store, or the person behind the counter?  Pashtus is that its the owner since thats whos losing.   A lot involved

I bought something in Bestbuy that was bundled with a $50 Bestbuy gift card
it came broken, I wanted to exchange it.... But the cashier just refunded me without  asking anything.

So basically I got the $50 GC for free - I havent got charged for the GC yet ...

Either way this does not sound too ethical aka yashrus, and definitely bordering Chll"h to brag about it.

i didnt start this thread in order to brag etc.. but i brought up the topic bec a situation happened to me and i was wondering how often it happens, and then ppl are bringing their cases of when it happens. its not in the category of bragging really.

and in a way its not ethical if ur doing it purposely but if it was unintentional, then not speaking up when theyre giving you more is a diff story.

I think it's just funny how business -- as oppose to the government -- makes such mistakes. I had Jos. A Bank give me full price on something I bough for one of their best sales, a $150 mistake...

in most of the big chain stores even if you tell them you bought it discounted, there is nothing they can do, the system is set up to give back the current price... they will still give full even if you tell them.

The only time that I don't mention, is when I bought an item with a MFG coupon and the store will only return minus coupon if shown receipt, even though they will not be pulling that coupon out of the pile. So why should they get the extra 2 bucks when I could.
