restocking fees on lighting returns .... UGH!

rufinoroxFebruary 22, 2010

I should have read the fine print. I purchased an island light online to find that it maybe too big for our space. I decided to return the item to find out there is a 30% restocking fee along with $17 shipping charges. UGH! it will cost me 1/2 the cost of the lamp to return the item. I guess I should list it on ebay. Just wanted to vent to everyone. Do you think it will work in our space? This will be over a 5x3 granite countertop.

Here is the item?

anyone interested in buying? lol ....

Here is a link that might be useful:

That is one of the many hidden costs of buying on the internet. Often the companies don't even have a store or a representative in the US and offer no warranty service.
