iirc with regards to that story that you are referring to, I think after the fact Reb Shmuel kamenetsky told him to be מפרסם it so he should make a kiddush hashem and otherwise it wasn't so simple that he returned it
Are you trying to undo that?
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

I was in H&M the other day returning a item that costed me about $40. The cashier who did the return was obviously new and mistakenly refunded me the original price of $70. Instead of walking away with the extra funds on my cc, i pointed out his mistake.

He was very grateful and surprised.

Was just thinking that this would be a great thread to start and found this in a search.

Hopefully bringing this up to 2019 will inspire people to post their own Kiddush Hashem stories.

Nothing major, but even just holding a door for someone, or letting someone with a couple items go before you when you have a full cart is a small kiddush Hashem.

If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Last Friday, three hours before shabbos, I told the mid level on the team that I'd handle everything until shabbos myself, since she would be handling everything over shabbos.  Double kiddush Hashem, because I was shomer shabbos, and did chessed.

Not sure if this counts, since I don't know if they realized I was jewish, but...

Found a Mavic Pro Drone while hiking a few weeks ago. Tried searching how I could track its owner, finally pulled the SD card, used the GPS coordinates from the pictures of a backyard party to pull up the house, then looked up the people who lived there, then looked up their phone numbers and called them, and they knew the owners of the drone, so we were able to return it to them.

They came and picked it up, we left it in our mailbox for them. They actually left us $50, which really wasn't necessary, but they only told us afterwards. Nice of them!

I was trying to figure out a way to do that without sounding like I was being arrogant about it, but couldn't figure out a way...
