If you don't know, Costco
is a warehouse store like Sam's only with a much better return policy. Some electronics like TVs, PCs and iPods they double the mfg. warranty which is nice in itself. And when my 2nd iPod went bezerk on me, their 'concierge service' got me super fast treatment from Apple
My first iPod was purchased there before this new policy, so when it goes caput, Costco will give me a brand new one.
Most things you can return any time for any
reason. No questions asked. Example: Recently they allowed us to return a 7 year old
Bissell carpet cleaner that I used to death and got the full $250 we paid for it in 2002 back in cash! Of course, we turned around and bought a new Bissell cleaner at Costco but it was now only $175!!!!!!!!!!!! So it's like we got paid for using and abusing the Bissell. They knew how old the item was, they always look things up on their computer, so if you lose your receipt that's OK too.
Anything purchased online at costco.com can be returned to the store and you even get your S&H.
I'm just so darned tickled with them I had to tell you guys in case you thought it wasn't any worth looking into.
