I had a friend that bought a Pentium 4 (2ghz) from BestBuy one time. He bought it but did not get a chance to put it in his computer and test it for about 3 weeks. It was bad. They would not take it back because the package was not opened up properly and it was past the 9-15 (whatever it is) day no questions asked return period.
So I went and bought a 2ghz Pentium 4 from them, opened it carefully and put his old one back in the box, took it immediately back (literally 20 minutes later) and said I want to return this and I want my money back. They asked why, and I said I am not happy with the purchase and I want my money back as it is still within the 9-10 day grace period. She said she has to charge me a restocking fee. I said no ma’am I will not pay one (politely) and asked to speak to the manager. I got some dweeb who was not the manager, just higher up than her. I told him I wish to return this, as you claim I can and refuse to pay a restocking fee. He argued with me, and so I sat the CPU down right in front of him and started to leave; knowing he would be confused why I would leave it there without getting any money back. When he asked I simply said, you have the product and my money, that is illegal, I will call my credit card company and tell them you stole money from me. I will get my money back without paying a restocking fee that way and you get to explain to your boss why the credit card company is demanding money back.
He gave me my money back, no restocking fee and my friend got a working CPU.
