Natlie, I only started this pratice after spending $35,000 (house was broken into and all items stolen bought all replacements there) at this particular establishment and then went to return a $60 item that I bought as a gift for someone at the same time as the $35,000 purschase but was not the same item as what the box said it was. The salesperson told me that it had a 30 day return instead of a 14 day return, and upon me trying to return it for the correct item was told sorry 14 day return no can do from the manager after I dropped $35,000 at that store. That is when I started to buy off the internet. This was a personal decesion I made after the treatment I felt I received at that particular store. I only suggested the person go to a store like this and do that because this is what the "salesperson" told me to do (try the little one first because it already was a open box item and if you like it return it and get one of the bigger ones, and I did..just not from them. Their price was $249 for the item I got for $105 on ebay nib). $145 maybe nothing to you, but it is to me. I try not to be judgemental of people on this site, as I feel that the internet is a place for information and not somewhere to make anonymous criticisms or judgements of people that I do not really know. As we all have free will and free moral agency, I simply explained my situation based upon my experiences and whoever reads it is free to make their own decesions based upon what they feel is right or wrong based upon their own values without someone telling them what they should or should not think or do. Even though I may be young, most of my experiences have taught me that it is not always black and white. Most of the time we live in the grey area inbetween. While I am not perfect I do sometimes make decesions that I do consider to be morally imperfect for reasons I have decided.
