Do you return stuff that you buy often? If so, what and why? I think I am always in a rush when I shop and when I get home and have time to try something on leisurely, I realize it doesn't look good or fit right.
my door is always open, so feel free to leave

My dad has a friend that is a chronic returner. My dad told me his friend bought a Bunn coffee pot, used it for over 5 years and then returned it so he could get a new one free of charge. I am not sure how he did it, but he did it. He did the same thing with shoes, wallets, etc.

I don't do that. I consider it like a hassle for the employees to constantly getting returns sometimes. Yes, it's a part of their job, but if I can avoid returning things, it'll be less trouble for myself as well. I won't go shopping if I'm rushed or if the store is closing within the hour.

I return things because man oh man I cannot get help while I'm there so I think it is okay for me to return it if I'm not satisfied. Double that for cosmetics, I get ignored in makeup stores a lot lol I just do the best I can but it's like trial and error sometimes

Yeah aplsmash lol. I don't know if I come off as rude or what... For instance once I asked if a moisturizer I wanted was in stock, and I got passed along like 3 people and then the last girl wouldn't get it for me but showed me a primer... I figured, okay I'll take her advice. but I didn't like it after all

Ive returned some things. If you buy something and you dont like it why keep it and let it collect dust when you can return it and get your money back?

I hate returning so unless it just doesnt fit right or something I try not to do too many returns. I also like to make sure and really like what I am buying so when I get home I dont have to return it either..

My dad always gets ignored momo, whenever we go in circuit city they just pretend he is not there. but they go up to me and follow me around asking if i need help when i go with him. it's so wrong i hate that store. i think they do it cause hes a middle aged guy who doesnt look like he has a lot of money and im a young female who glams herself up to go out.

Back to topic, I don't return a lot but my moms a chronic returner, everything she buys at the evil walmart goes back the next day, and she never learns.

I am the QUEEN of returns. LOL. I tend to impulse buy. I recently bought NARS Taos blush from Sephora. Once I got home, I realized it was probably a little too dark for me, but I bought it in a rush because I ran in there like 15 mintues before closing. I was going to return it, but JUST this morning, I decided to bite the bullet, open it and hope it worked on my skin. Umm...it kinda looked clown-ish, but I'm going to work with it! LOL. But I have about 4 tops I need to return to various stores. LOL

Yeah I return things...mostly clothes. Usually it didn't go with an outfit I had in mind when I bought it. I don't do that as much anymore because stores are really keeping track of how often you return things. I heard that if you return too much, the store will give you a credit instead of a refund.

I don't return because when I worked in retail I dealt with chronic returners. I never really buy anything that I am unsure about.

I do remeber one time I bought a LE MAC Holiday Item and ended up not liking it. I went to return it and the girl gave me the hardest time. She told me " There are people out there who really want this and now we can't sell it, we have to throw it away!" I felt bad, but I didn't like it1

Sometimes when I shop with the kids I do not try stuff on them or myself and end up having to exchange it for something else.
