Is there anything I can do or is it just tough?

Thepursuitofhappiness Mon 16-Jun-14 07:47:32

Well if you've got the receipts and tags still on, unworn, of course legally you can take them back and buy them again.

londonrach Mon 16-Jun-14 07:48:48

Take them back. Seen people in m and s bringing back and re buying at lower price at customer service

londonrach Mon 16-Jun-14 07:49:10

Need to have tags in and receipt

Mercythompson Mon 16-Jun-14 08:00:18

I don't have tags in. Do have reciept. Any point in asking shop to refund the difference?

houseisfallingdown Mon 16-Jun-14 08:02:16

Buy them again next week and take the ones with tags on back with the higher priced receipt.

SuburbanRhonda Mon 16-Jun-14 08:05:25

It's annoying, I've done the same myself, but is it such a large amount of money that you would be bothered to go through the cloak and dagger business that house is suggesting?

londonrach Mon 16-Jun-14 08:06:34

Without tags you can't take back. Legally the shop doesn't have to take i tens back if not faulty but most clothes shops do. Only thing you can do is rebut new ones at lower price and return with higher receipt although that's abit morally wrong. You decide

londonrach Mon 16-Jun-14 08:07:18

Items not i tens

HaroldLloyd Mon 16-Jun-14 08:08:07

If you've taken the tags back I can't imagine they will do anything, that's super annoying though.

londonrach Mon 16-Jun-14 08:08:12

Rebuy not rebut

coalscuttle Mon 16-Jun-14 08:08:13

Actually you have no legal right to take them back unless they are faulty, tags and receipts or not.

BikeRunSki Mon 16-Jun-14 08:08:49

The thing about sale stick, is that you can't be sure they'll have your size/colour. Sometimes you have to pay full price if you really want something.

HaroldLloyd Mon 16-Jun-14 08:09:19

If you've got the tags and receipts and they were only bought last week they would be within the timescale that shops normally allow a return so there would be nothing stopping you taking them back.

LightastheBreeze Mon 16-Jun-14 08:09:20

Yes, do has house says, I'm always doing this, you just have to hope there are some left smile

HaroldLloyd Mon 16-Jun-14 08:10:10

Sometimes they mark the labels to show they were part of a sale though. Worth checking that.

arethereanyleftatall Mon 16-Jun-14 08:11:13

Legally, you've no legs to stand on. Bit fr

arethereanyleftatall Mon 16-Jun-14 08:12:07

But from a customer service perspective you might get somewhere.just try it.

clucky80 Mon 16-Jun-14 08:12:18

JL are brilliant for this. I bought some Ash Bowie's just over 2 weeks ago for £155 and last week they reduced them to £77.50! I called them and as I had bought them in the last 30 days they refunded me £77.50 as part of their brand match. This also happened with an iPad mini my DH bought before Xmas, they reduced them temporarily by £40, he called as he had paid the extra a couple of week before and they refunded him the £40. This is why I buy everything possible in JL!

wineoclocktimeye Mon 16-Jun-14 08:13:33

I would see if I can get them in the sale and then take back with the old receipt. But, as said above, they may mark thee tags of sales items, Next definitely do this.

clucky80 Mon 16-Jun-14 08:14:16

*sorry not brand match, the 'never knowingly undersold' policy.

londonrach Mon 16-Jun-14 08:17:45

Clucky JL refuses to price match if you buy with cash. I complained to head office on this. As only £10 I didn't follow it up and bought the camera at cheaper store. I think head office said the manager in the oxford street got it wrong but cant remember now. Was too impressed at time.

clucky80 Mon 16-Jun-14 08:36:34

Oh Londonrach, that's annoying. I get most things from JL online as I have a local Waitrose down the road and I get it delivered there. The iPad and boots were bought online and refunds arranged through their online customer services.

londonrach Mon 16-Jun-14 08:38:18

Something to do with checking the price at other store and then needing credit card, debit card to refund. Oh well

TestingTestingWonTooFree Mon 16-Jun-14 09:02:01

I think houseisfallingdown's suggestion is rather dishonest. I'd maybe try a polite complaint but you've no legal entitlement to anything. I try to wear new things immediately to avoid this happening.
