Quick! Discount for Dent & Scratch
We just bought a new refrigerator for our pantry at Lowes. Got a reasonably good deal but did not do my usual super-bargain hunting. In other words, we didn't haggle, etc. When the guy delivered it, Hubby saw a big dent in the back corner - maybe 4" tall by 2" wide. Hubby asked the delivery guy and he said we should call the store for a discount because of that. I'm OK with the dent - it'll never be seen, etc.
So question #1 is what kind of discount is standard for a pretty good sized dent at the back of a refrigerator that wasn't bought as a scratch 'n dent?
Right after the delivery guy left, I came home and saw the new fridge for the first time. What Hubby missed is a scratch on the front door. It's about 1.25" long and right at my (short-person) eye level, so below his usual line of sight. It's pretty thin -- looks just like a dog hair actually, so I'm assuming that's what Hubby thought it was ;-). But it's not. It's a scratch that goes all the way through the paint to the bare metal. This *does* bug me and I don't want to live with the door scratch. I want a new door.
So question #2 is what kind of discount (above and beyond the dent discount #1) is fair for a 1.25" scratch on the front door of a refrigerator that wasn't bought scratch 'n dent?
Hubby says he can fix the paint so that "I'd never see it..." He's *very talented*, but honestly, I'm skeptical. But this IS the pantry, and the grocery list could cover it...
Obviously, we need to talk to Lowes today -
