I was at a local discount store today, and found a few items that I might be able to re-sell on eBay for a profit. At least one of the items is kind of hit-or-miss on eBay, but when it’s a “hit” I could almost double my money.
I’m contemplating going back to the store tomorrow and asking what their return policy is. Let’s assume for a moment that their policy is money back within 30 days as long as the item is still in the package and/or has all tags still attached, and I have the store receipt.
Is it dishonest to try this?
On the one hand, I try to live my life by the Golden Rule, and wouldn’t want people buying stuff from me off of eBay and then returning it if they couldn’t resell it.
OTOH, logic tells me that a large chain of stores doesn’t really care why you’re returning something, as long as you’re doing it within the parameters of the rules.
What say the Dopers?
