Apparently this woman figured out the loophole...


While many of us were trying to figure out where to discard our Christmas trees, one woman decided to return hers.

On Jan 4., the woman reportedly took her tree to a Santa Clarita Costco asking for a refund because her tree died.

One shopper, who was waiting in line behind the woman, was so blown away that he posted about the exchange on his Facebook page.

"I can't make this stuff up," Scott Bentley wrote. "Woman in line at Costco, totally nonchalant, to return her Christmas tree 'because it is dead' on January 4."

The man even shamed Costco for allowing the "ridiculous" return to occur and the woman for asking for her money back.

"Heartbreaking to think she may have needed that money so much, she lost all self respect and dignity for it."

Surprisingly, Costco did issue the woman a refund, Bentely said in his post.

The woman still hasn't been identified; however, she did give shoppers on social media a new idea for next year.

I once watched an Indian woman return a chicken carcass to Costco with not a piece of meat on it, telling the person behind the return counter it didn't taste good! They gave her the money back! I personally would of told her it must of tasted okay because you ate the entire chicken! Ah, the benefits of being a member and not a customer.

Also Costco isn't the only one to do this, Home Depot has also ponied up the refund for used (dead)Christmas trees after the holidays.
