Point 1. We got our fridge delivered in June from Sears outlet-it was a return/floor model so the outer shell had some dings-no big deal since it is going to take a wood panel. However, upon inspection, the inside had the tiniest of scratches (~1/2")-so tiny it's really not photo worthy. Anyways, I called them up and they offered me $50 credit to my card-woot! Or, a new fridge. I would rather just have $50. That was June. I finally called them back today to claim the $50 instead of the new fridge. So worth the 5 min phone call.
Point 2. We ordered a new sink from Lowe's last week and part of the deal was free delivery. Well, strangely, I got a phone call saying that the sink had arrived at the store and was ready for pick up. hmmm. Anyways, looks like it was a mistake so I asked what they would give me since I now have to drive 20 mins to go haul that big boy home. You know, cast iron and all. And gas is, well, ridiculous. Anywho, they offered me a 10% credit to my card. Sa-weet! $48 and some change for me. I need to go to Lowes anyways so no big deal.
I wish I could say "girls night out" with the extra money but how about say "Light Fixtures".
You ever get some great discounts/refunds just for asking?
