Thread Details

I'm only going to be living in my current house for about another 9 months. I want to get a nice TV 50-60" 120Hz for a good deal. What is the likelihood that I can find a TV that I can return for a full refund after 9 months, assuming that I haven't broken anything by then?

Why would you think you can do something like that? Making up a lie to return an item past its return date is fraud.

I didn't say anything about lying. I suppose I just need a better understanding of warranties. Does that mean generally something has to be broken to claim a warranty? Basically I just want to rent a TV.

Then find a place that will rent you a TV and pay them to rent it.

You don't want to rent a TV - you want a TV to use for free for 9 months. If you know someone who will let you borrow their TV for 9 months, then get them to let you borrow it. Retail establishments don't lend people expensive electronic equipment to use for free.

This is retail fraud, punishable by a fine and/or jail time. With all due respect, please f*ck out of here.

He's not being a dick about it, you're just not using your brain. "Oh, I think I'll just buy this thing and somehow get all my money back several months later even though it's past the return and not broken or anything."

If Costco allows that then it is fine as long as you aren't lying about the TV being defective. If you say, hey I am done using this and I want my money back there is nothing wrong with it it is just that I don't need it any more and Costco says No problem, here is your money back - then that's fine.


But that is not what happens. People lie when they return and that is FRAUD.
