Return/Rebuy Discussion Thread
Posted 11 November 2004 - 07:36 AM
Buy the item in advance of the sale. Return the item to the store on Black Friday and then immediately rebuy it to take advantage of the new sale price.
In a lot of cases, Black Friday items have rebates. So you must actually re-ring the item to get a new receipt with valid dates for the rebates. Also, make sure you buy the item within the retailers return policy or they may not allow you to return and then rebuy. These policies can vary anywhere from 14 to 30 days.
This method could also be considered useful for stores that don't allow pricematching.
Potential problems that you should be somewhat aware of:
1) Some items may not be bought early as some stores hold their stock of the item until Black Friday. As a way to prevent early buying.
2) Some managers may not allow you to rebuy the item or even pricematch the item citing a special limited one day event.
Pricematching discussion thread in case that's what you're looking for.

I'm told and assume yes you would have to do it within the "sale hours" I just spoke w/a guy from BB, he said the individual stores sometimes "close their cust.service to use as cashiering stations only"!!! That's a problem?
Yes I have done this but I would suggest to scout out the policy in the individual store and ask very specific ?? ie does the price adjustment have to be made within the same time constraints as the sale?

BF is so crazy anyway that I cannot even imagine doing a return on that day!! Do you guys really do it? Doesn't it add to the exhaustion of the day??
The few times I've been out on BF in the last couple of years, it looked like the CS desks were the lonliest places in town...

I did the return/rebuy trick last year for the laptop BB has for BF.
Brought the laptop few days early, then went to return/rebuy before the early-bird sales end.
I didn't even have to stand in line for the return/rebuy as the crowd were gone by then.
Did they require you to bring in the laptop or did you just show them your receipt?
