Woman demands full refund from Costco for 'dead' Christmas tree

Woman demands full refund from Costco for 'dead' Christmas tree”

A woman recently returned her Christmas tree because it was dead and got a full refund.

The warehouse club allows members to return nearly anything they've purchased at any time for a full refund (there is a 90-day limit on electronics).

A few days into January 2018, a frugal woman dragged her dead Christmas tree to Costco, demanded a refund and got it. But not without a little bit of shaming from the store and other customers.

The unidentified woman wanted her money back for her tree because she claimed it was now "dead", according to NBC affiliate, WFLA.

People present at the store were shocked as one of them wrote on social media about the lack of moral values of the woman.

But first, according to Bentley, the woman was questioned, had the purchase verified on her account, "and she was shamed to a small degree".

Bizarrely, the woman apparently managed to get her money back in full despite taking the battered fir back a full 10 days after December 25.

"Heartbreaking to think she may have needed that money so much, she lost all self-respect and dignity for it". But he added that it did not appear to faze the woman at all.

It is not sure whether the original post was deleted by the user.

I guess Costco will let you return anything and everything...

It is a novel idea, considering the streets of NY and London become a Christmas tree graveyard at the end of each festive season.
