Costco is known for their generous return policy, but a California woman may have taken things a little far when she returned her used Christmas tree this month. The brazen woman claimed the tree was “dead,” and yes, she walked away with a full refund.
Scott Bentley, who was behind the woman in line at the Costco in Santa Clara, California, posted a photo on Facebook and wrote: “I can’t make this stuff up. Woman in line at Costco, totally nonchalant, to return her Christmas tree ‘because it’s dead’ on January 4th.
Bentley said the woman got a refund, but Costco employees questioned her and verified purchase on her account. He added she was shamed to a small degree, but wasn't fazed.
- Think she's totally out of her mind. Maybe not so much. According to a Reddit post, some of the craziest things ever returned to Costco include a safe that reeked of pot, an empty wine bottle (which the returner said gave her a headache) and used mattresses.
- For the record...Costco’s return policy is open ended with no time limit with the exception of electronics, which have a 90-day limit.
