Submission + - Best Buy Swipes Drivers License for Returns/Exchanges - Blocked for 90 Days (courant.com) 1

rullywowr writes: "A customer with a defective Blu-Ray disc returns to the Best Buy store where he purchased it. After scanning his driver's license into the system, he is now banned from returning/exchanging goods for 90 days. This is becoming one of the latest practices which big-box stores including Target, Best Buy, and Toys R Us are using to limit fraud and abuse of the return system. You know, the people who buy a big screen TV before the big game and then return it on Monday. Opponents feel that this return-limiting concept has this gone too far, including the harvesting of your personal data. What do you think?"

  • The article only mentions this happening at Best Buy. The only place other retailers are mentioned is in the facebook comments, which is full of contradicting information.

You are always doing something marginal when the boss drops by your desk.
