    The reason I care about return abuse is Costco. Costco used to have a fantastic return policy that I personally only used rarely (but was very glad it was available). Unfortunately there were many people that viewed the Costco return policy as a revolving rental so that they could bring in that two year old TV (that had nothing wrong with it) and walk out with a brand new one.

    When return policies are abused it not only trickles down into higher prices for other consumers but also results in much needed return policies being trimmed back.

    At the end of the day though, you are right, it's for TiVo and/or BB to worry about, not us.

    Exactly. As long as the OP is within the return period, who cares?

    Consumers are allowed to change their minds. If Tivo feels their process is being abused, then they need to change their policy.

    Did Costco change their return policy? I'm not a member so don't know about their policy. I think the days of no questions asked returns might be numbered because of the way it gets abused.

    And it seems to me that when jackasses abuse the system then it will have to be changed just for reasons of economics and this is to the disadvantage of all. I think there are quite a few people like me who are generally responsible in other aspects of our lives who resent the idea of subsidizing the behaviour of others. It's just an opinion. You can see the mentality of people with differing opinions above in this thread, e.g. "there's nothing you can do!" for God's sake. "I'm special" and so on ad nauseum.

    Where does it say here, in this forum, that I bought and received THESE Mini's, that I have? They are from TiVo.com

    Why do you keep talking about BestBuy, when these aren't from BB?

    Please quote me when you find it.

    Uh-oh. I realized I got the OP confused with somebody else earlier in this thread. I'm surprised he got so feisty about his Best Buy status though so I don't feel too guilty. For the record overfedexed isn't the guy who had trouble with his setup so sorry about that.

    Apology accepted. I got so excited, that I accidentally purchased a Sharp 90'' Tv, on Bestbuy.com

    Don't worry, I will return it.....in 59 days!:)

    Don't forget to tell them you are a special customer (silver status!) and to write an essay about it on here.

    Hopefully you don't end up like this guy...

    http://consumerist.com/2012/04/10/b...icense-tells-him-hes-returned-too-many-items/

    And I was apologising about confusing you with the other nuisance customer who couldn't set his mini up not for the fact that you are a nuisance customer. If you are happy about that and have stopped your ranting then fair enough.

    I started this thread asking for these guys opinions, on whether or not I should return my Mini's or just deactivate and hold on to them for future use.

    Why did you come into this thread and say

    I didn't ask for opinions on restocking fees, so why did you post this?
    And this;

    And this;

    And this;

    And this;


    .


    That's five times that YOU were ranting and you were ranting at the wrong person.

    Also, please find any posts here, or for that matter, provide any evidence, that shows that I'm a "nuisance customer". You can't even figure out who is who on here.

    Please post/quote whatever you find.

    I saw your review over at Amazon. I'm guessing that it was you and it was great. It included everything that you could possibly think of.

    Aaaaand you couldn't stop. There is enough evidence in this thread about how much of a nuisance customer you are. Read your own comments. Think about why there are so many mocking or negative comments in the thread you started. "I'm a silver member" LOL, do you mind if I use that at the bottom of my posts by the way?

    I don't mind. Do you mind if I use this one?

    This is part of the reason that people were mocking me. Based on this assumption/misinformation, they were mocking the wrong person then.
    . I didn't buy these from BB, remember? I'm wanted to try and KEEP the units, remember? So why the talk of the restocking fee...because you had the wrong person.
