Eh, no worries. What goes around comes around. Rip people off for hundreds, life will find a way to rip you off to the tune of thousands or worse. Funny thing is they'll tell you about how they ripped people off, not when they were had. Kinda like gamblers and their winnings, ever hear your gambler buddy tell you how much he lost?

The golden rule is still the golden rule...

I hear ya on that, here's my problem with it though. These packs of little scumbags run around bragging how they fucked over a legit place, then more and more of the disrespectful fuckers do this shit cause they think it's cool. Sooner or later the retailer either changes their return policy, raises prices to stay afloat, or worst case they go out of business. A lot of us don't have the option of buying local so we rely on online retailers for our gear, finding one's that still respect their customers is getting harder and harder.

kind of like how every poker player claims to be "up overall" as if the house was giving money away

edit: i'm guessing that they must have some way to prevent themselves from getting screwed over. even if say, a minority of 10% of their customers take complete advantage of this (buy gear, use the crap out it, return it), from my understanding of retail operations, that's enough to eat right into the margins of the company and at best leave it break-even at the end of the year. so there's got to be something they're doing on their end that prevents them from getting the shit kicked out of them.

Margins on retail are insane. Plus the big companies account for a % of lost/warranty/returned equipment and they write it off as business expense. Trust me, no one is going bankrupt over some kids returning used gear.

But it's still a douche move to do it.

They have a satisfaction guarantee and advertise it and undoubtedly get more business just because of it.

So if you buy something, and don't like it, return it, and not feel guilty.

That said, if you buy it with the intention of returning it even if you like it, that's stupid.

I don't think companies would offer that no hassle return policy if they really couldn't make it work financially. I'm sure they have several accountants that take a look at the numbers, are you especially when you are talking about a company as huge as Backcountry.

I also believe that companies that offer their no hassle return policy will flag your account if you abuse the policy, meaning that eventually you become persona non grata.

A: I have never heard anyone around Hidden Valley talking about scamming Dogfunk or any other site. Though there are a few groups of douchebag park rats that I wouldn't put it past them.

B: Due the the companies limiting when online shops can offer discounts they are basically forced into making obscene profits from gear.

No argument there. My first statement was intended to be sarcastic. Pity that a few retards ruin it for all including themselves.
