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.

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

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

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
