Any "chronic returners" out there?

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
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.

Same here, but I usually never return them.

Re: Any "chronic returners" out there?

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.

Re: Any "chronic returners" out there?

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 barely return anything. If I don't end up liking it and never use it, I'll sell it on ebay lol!

Re: Any "chronic returners" out there?

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

Re: Any "chronic returners" out there?

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?

Re: Any "chronic returners" out there?

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..

Re: Any "chronic returners" out there?

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.

Re: Any "chronic returners" out there?

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

Re: Any "chronic returners" out there?

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.

Re: Any "chronic returners" out there?

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.

Re: Any "chronic returners" out there?

I am definately a chronic returner. Usually I'll buy something and either my mom or my friends won't like it, or I have buyers remorse, so back it goes. Sometimes when I look at my upcoming credit card statement I'll be in shock at the number, so anything with tags that I can bear to part with goes back to the store. It's a nasty habit and my friends make fun of me all the time for it. I just need to stay out of the mall =(.

Re: Any "chronic returners" out there?

I try not to return things, so I rarely have to, but when I do, I feel as if I'm under a spotlight with a microphone attached to me,and a huge glowing cage suddenly around me,every other customer peering through the bars at me like I'm some kind of a reject of nature. Well,only at one place I love to shop,which makes returning things a nightmare, do I feel this way: the SA's are so rude about it,they practically fingerprint you,or do some sort of "character check"on the computer,force you to prove you can walk a straight line, before they take back a single item...I wish I didn't love this store, b/c I'm too scared to return things there anymore;I have the fear that next time I try to,they might not only ask me to leave their store immediately but the country,as well--or make damn sure in the next few minutes that I'll want to.
But usually,I feel bad for employees,having the extra hassle of returns, and a bit embarrassed myself, so even if the place is fairly nice about returns, I'm still never comfortable returning things,and do it less often than I probably should.

Same here...i currently work in retail and at my job, when people return stuff you sold to them, the take it out of your pocket so im very considerate people. I never buy anything i know i might return. I think its awful and yes, they keep track of people that return stuff all the time.
This lady was turned down twice and came back yesterday and we turned her down again and let Loss prevention know so they can keep their eye on her.
