Woman returns 'dead' Christmas tree to Costco in January for full refund

  • The woman has not been identified but she did give shoppers an idea for next year

The unimpressed shopper behind her took a photo of her with the large (and yes, dead) tree next to her in the queue at Costco.

In a move that can either be deemed savvy or simply ridiculous, a California woman went to Costco with her dead Christmas tree demanding a refund, and she got it.

A furious woman in California created a commotion at a popular wholesale outlet as she came to return her Christmas tree.

Customers at the Costco were so blown away by the woman's actions that one man made a decision to call her out on Facebook.

"I can't make this stuff up", Scott Bentley wrote. One man expressed his disbelief on Facebook, which was multiplied when, according to him, she got her money back.

Five-star Barcelona cruise through in Copa del Rey
Despite losing 2-1 at Villarreal, who are now sixth in La Liga, Leganes progressed on away goals having won the first leg 1-0. Celta visited Catalonia last month in the league, with the game ending 2-2, and another draw can be backed at 27/4 (7 .75).


"If I didn't see it, I wouldn't believe that someone had so little morel [sic] values or lack of conscience".

The man claimed that Costco employees did confirm she bought the tree at their store and gave her the refund.

At least the customer had to return the item to the store and didn't incur shipping costs for the retailer. But I don't think it fazed her because she has no conscience.

Stories like the "expired" Christmas tree reinforce the idea of shopper entitlement.

But her approach is something to keep in mind for next year, eh?
