I enjoy playing video games but don’t have a system of my own. I have friends who have the PS3 and an XBox 360. Sometimes they finish with the games and so I take the old games back to GamesStop to trade them for something else. A few days ago I headed back with a particularly worthless game I had suggested, hoping that I would at least get $6 back from the $17 paid.
“I didn’t like this game and I am looking to sell it.” I said to the GS employee.
He looked at the receipt from several weeks ago and said “You know you have to return it in the 7 day window.”
“Yes I understand that. I didn’t like how the game played. The controls were useless.” I said. The truth is that I couldn’t play 5 minutes of it because it was garbage.
“Ok.” he said. “Do you want the cash or put back on your card?”
“Card please.” I said. “So I guess I will get like $6 back?”
“No you will get the entire amount.” he said.
“Thanks! I didn’t expect that” I responded.
True to his word the next day the full purchase price was refunded. Sometimes you get unexpected gifts.
