His Latest Financial Wins
The boyfriend can be pretty amazing for our checkbook sometimes. Here's some of the latest wins he's had...that I never, ever would have thought to use.
Returning Stuff Without the Tags
He insisted we try to return the coat. I was so, so sure they wouldn't take it back without the tags. Even though he had only worn it for 4.5 seconds. We still had the receipt. I've had experience with places like Wal-Mart and Target where they will take back stuff that still has tags on it without the receipts. But never heard of anywhere taking stuff back without the tags. And this place was no Wal-Mart or Target. But he insisted. So we tried.
VICTORY. He exchanged the coat for another one with literally no hassles at all from the store employees. I couldn't believe what I had just witnessed.
Bringing Up That Quote They Gave Him
He went in. And there was no $120 one. Some were less. Some were more. The most expensive and highest quality one was $160. "Didn't you say there was one for $120?" he asked. He didn't demand or throw a fit. The guy remembered talking to him on the phone, said he had made a mistake and misquoted him, and gave him the most expensive battery for the quoted price. Are you kidding me? Forty dollars means a lot to our budget right now. And instead of a middle-grade battery, we got the nicest one.
Thanks, boyfriend for saving us $140 lately. And that's just the things I've taken note of. You rock.
