so i have a manufacturer's coupon for $100 off a computer that is selling for $600 in a store .
i go to the store pay $500 plus the coupon .
take the computer to my car ... but now i decide i really don't want the computer .
i take it back inside , still in its box .
how much should i get back ???
In that case, the store is still holding that $100 coupon.
They can easily reach into the drawer and pull it out, and destroy it.
If it was some time later, a couple of weeks/ a month, within the return time, the store has already handed that coupon in, and gotten that $100.
If I come back to the store, no I wouldn't expect to get a $100, but I would expect the manufacturer to get back THEIR hundred dollars that they gave to the store.
ok people....I am not talking about ME getting back the $3, or $100, per se....Someone though is out the money, if the coupon has already been reimbursed.
ehbeth, you mean to tell me that the cash register, receipt system is so sophisticated that it can track every 50 cents, every 25 cent off coupon, communicate it acurately on a daily basis from the store to the clearinghouse, so they can, on a daily basis credit the manufacturer for each 25 cents that came out of their product, and charge it back to that particular store?
I can't get the company that supplies my office with bottle of drinking water to understand that we only want 3 cases this month, and not 4. How is something else this massive carried out?
Are you saying every cash register in every store is networked with the clearinghouse system, and accurate transactions are continually updated?
Whoever accomplished that should be working on solving our national debt.
