Regretting a purchase ($50 & up) for any reason, do you return for a refund or exchange OR are you


the type of person who is reluctant to return something, so you chalk it up to a disappointing purchase & forget it? In either case, why do you choose the option?

    Yes!girl after my own penny-pinching heart! If I return 4 any reason, I have my receipt & off I go. I ask this bcuz of friends who refuse 2 return things.They stick it in a box,give it away,sell at a yard sale w/tags! Waste $$ is a crime IMO! LOL

    tsmog..Exactly. It boggles my mind that some people have no problem just letting any amt. of $$ just fall by the wayside. Why? Becuz they have a mental block about returns being a hassle? But they aren't! B smart~B frugal! Pennies count!

    I know exactly what you mean, Genna. I think a lot of people see returns as 1 big hassle. It really isn't. ALL stores do it now-a-days..1-2-3 & the transaction is done! Have U ever dined out w/ a person who refuses to send back a bad meal?! Arghh

    Annie...I'm with you! No impulse buying for me either! Looks like you've got an excellent handle on the "Return" situation! Good for you & your finances.
