<3 I LOVE SALES!!! <3
I had to get that out there, and now that the Christmas shopping is finally completed, I can now focus on the sales. My own particular strategy is to BUY EVERYTHING, but it can often end in heartbreak,especially when the size 6 red sparkly platform heels fall apart on the first night, and after you spending €60 on them, typical. Suddenly, you have a flashback of the sign at the counter:
|The bane of all sale-aholics|
This sign is created to prevent the return of sale goods, NOT for faulty items. Yes, you cannot return return items if you have a change of mind, but if the product is damages through no fault of yours, you are entitled to bring it back.
Bottom line is: If a product is faulty, you are intitled to bring it back, sale or no sale.
Under the Consumer Act of 1990, if a product is faulty, consumers are entitled to the 3 "R"'s; repair, refund, or replacement.
Which of these 3 is between you and the retailer. They may insist on a repair, especially if it's an eletrical product, but if the same fault happens a second time, then you are entitled to a replacement.
Let the NCA.ie explain in more detail:
So, when you are shopping the sales this year, know your rights (and the correct shoe size) or it could all end in tears.....
