Wal-Mart Accused Again of Gift Receipt Scam

Sure, go ahead and regift that present your friend bought for you at Wal-Mart, but whatever you do, don’t return it. The world’s largest retailer is apparently slacking off on giving full refunds to customers with gift receipts, at least according to a recent report by CBS Boston. When a producer from the network attempted to return a TV originally purchased for $248 using a gift receipt, she was only able to get back $228 — the unit’s new on-sale price.

    When you return a item any time of the year and you don’ t have a "receipt" you get the sale price if it has ever been on sale. Every store does this. Get real people, if you don’t like Wal Mart don’t shop there.

    Walmart is doing the right thing (this time) – if a customer has a receipt, they get the full price – if not, the sale price. If not that way, some folks would be scamming and the rest of us would be paying for it in higher prices. YEAH WALMART!
