I was cleaning out my office this evening and came across a receipt I had saved from a recent trip to Circuit City. It’s a store I enjoy visiting. My computer, digital camera, DVD player and a bunch of other things began their lives at Circuit City.
Please, click on the link and take a look, because this is how Circuit City handles the purchase of a bottle of water and a bottle of soda.
The receipt itself measures 12¾″ by 4¼″. Not only are the drinks listed, but so are the two 5¢ bottle deposits. As it turns out, one drink was taxable, the other not (it doesn’t specify which). Tax was charged on the bottle deposits.
I had 30 days to return my purchase for a full refund. Of course, it had to be in its original condition including packaging.
It’s sort of funny to see them go through all this trouble for two drinks.
