Either way this does not sound too ethical aka yashrus, and definitely bordering Chll"h to brag about it.
Ethical behavior and any deals forum have very little in common.

Don't  make such broad statements. Just because you are stealing from Costco doesn't mean everyone is
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

I do remember stealing as a kid but Costco was not around back then. Costco was being talked about before I joined this forum.   :P

Buying something which you know you won't keep for cash back and causing the store a 2.5 percent loss on hundreds of  thousans of dollars is stealing in my book

I think it's just funny how business -- as oppose to the government -- makes such mistakes.
If there's one thing the government is good at it's taking your money.

I recently returned something to Costco (in Brooklyn) without a receipt, they looked up my account to see what I payed for it.
OTOH, there was a time a few years back where they gave me the lowest price the item had sold for...

Not everyone uses your book though. Unless you are coming from a legitimate source I don't think you can call anyone out about it

Duh, But when you refund the buyer you get back the fees
