Costco Accepts Return of Dead Christmas Tree

Woman returned Christmas tree for refund in January because it was 'dead'

A California woman who had bought a Christmas tree from Costco went back to return it on January 4, demanding a refund because she claimed that the tree was "dead". Whether she really needed the money or because of some other reason, scroll down to read how the customer tried to abuse Costco's refund policy and let us know what you think about it in the comments.

Costco's magnanimous return policy was severely tested last week in Santa Clarita, Calif., when a woman returned her Christmas tree to the big-box store and asked for a full refund "because it was dead".

The post has since been deleted, but a vestige of it survives on the Internet.

"I can't make this stuff up", he wrote.

A picture accompanying the post showed a woman with a red "X" over her face standing with a dead Christmas tree at the Costco customer service counter.


People on social media agreed with Bentley, calling the woman "cheap" and "disappointing".

It may be January, but some people are still in the process of returning those unwanted Christmas items back to stores.

The warehouse club allows members to return nearly anything they've purchased at any time for a full refund (there is a 90-day limit on electronics).

While the rest of us were debating where to abandon our trees, one woman made a decision to take hers back for a refund.
