I didn't even know about these things until 3 years ago when the local auto-parts store had them on sale on the front counter. I was worried that they would have a wide-angle lens and not give me the detail I needed. So I asked if they had one set up as a demo. Ha! What a weird idea. So the following conversation took place:

Me: "So if I buy this and it doesn't work out, can I return it?"
Salesman: "Normally you could but there's a 'no-return' policy on sale items."
Me: "So if I bought one next week when the sale is over, I could return it?"
Salesman: "Sure, no problem."
Me: "Well, can you sell it to me now at the regular price?"
Salesman: "Uhhhh ... I don't think we can do that?"
Me: "OK, bye."

 >:(

I got busy and never did get around to trying it.

That was about what it would cost to make another trip. Then there was my time -- half an hour each way. Besides, it's a good way to "test" a business. Are they willing to accommodate the customer, or do they want the customer to fit their way of doing business?

I also gotta confess that it's sometimes worth it to see the expression on their faces ;D.

Brucer, I think I am gonna try your tactics on some of the businesses around here just to open up some eyes if nothing else.   :D  Some of these businesses are so set in their ways around here that it's no wonder why so many of them are so close to closing up shop.   ::)

For the record, I work at a parts counter and I woulda' sold it without a second thought.   :D
