Check out this email that I received from Hip2Save reader, Fran…

[h2s_box]Collin-

I was reading comments on the Rite Aid Gerber post where readers are talking about wasting money on bad or expired products. Why would anyone “waste” their money? Why wouldn’t they just return the bad or expired for a good product?

Some stores, like Acme and Bottom Dollar have a double money back guarantee. Acme has Fresh or Free – Guaranteed Twice. They will replace your product plus refund your money and Bottom Dollar does the same thing. The reason I’m telling you this is I think this would be a good post “What do you do when you purchase expired or bad products?”

I think this post will be very helpful to your readers. After all, HIP is about saving money, right?[/h2s_box]

So with that being said, what do you do when you get home and find that products you just purchased are expired or bad? Do you toss them? Do you return to the store and ask for a refund? Please share your thoughts with us!
