This is such a stupid idea. There are so many idiots that'll destroy the prodcuts before returning them just to get out of paying a restocking fee.

Uhm, only defective items arent subject to the restocking fee, not destroyed items.

By destroyed I mean the person will do something to make the item defective. AKA video card that they don't want, let's rub it across the carpet and all of our sweaters or whatnot so we can return it without having to pay a restocking fee.

put it in the microwave for 2 seconds ... it'll get borked + no signs of damage

yeh, i torture video cards for sh!ts & giggles :evil:

I think they had it before, then a lot of companies did it and everyone was bitching, and I think it was Circuit City that stopped it and ADVERTISED no restocking fees.

Anyway, I understand why they do it, and if they apply the policy with some discretion it's not an issue to me.
