How cheap am I?

My mom accidentally bought a queen-sized fitted sheet from Bed, Bath, and Beyond a month ago for her king sized bed.  Of course, by the time she realized the problem, she had thrown away all the packaging and the receipt.  So I went to Bed, Bath , and Beyond to return it, and got

(1) credit back for the price of the sheet

(2) free shipping for the king sized version because the store was out of stock

(3) 20% off using one of their ubiquitous coupons

(4) less tax charged because my house is outside the city limits.
(I think I get bonus cheap points for noticing the tax difference)


  1. Impressive. Just goes to show you that it never hurts to ask.

  2. HOW did you swing that!? :)

    But it never hurts to ask, that's for sure!

  3. Nice, how did you manage to get all that? Guess goes to show that it's worth it to ask!

  4. As you guys guessed, I asked politely, with a smile. It's amazing how many discounts you can get that way.

  5. Not cheap, just plain smart! And, of course, a smile goes a long way....

  6. When it's your money, nothing's cheap!
