I worked at a Lowe's. 200 may not seem like much to a company that size, and in reality, it isn't, but when 200 dollars goes missing, the Store Manager, every manager below him, and all the peons below them feel the wrath. Big companies like that want to know how and why their ish is disappearing. Someone will lose a job. Most cashiers lose their job if they're $5 under what they should be at the end of the day.

Also, don't do it for karma. No such thing.


This is bull. I was Asset Protection for Wal-Mart for a long time and a popular metro store shrinks out around 1Mill a year... give or take. 200 bucks compared to the amount of theft and claimed out merchandise is actually a breath of fresh air.


So Wal-Mart is Lowes?

It's a billion dollar retail corporation with tons of shrink, just like Wal-Mart. These corporations don't even notice a $200 loss. And when they come across it, they don't even worry about it. Time is money to these guys, and that isn't worth it. They have insurance and contracts with the distributors that take care of this kind of stuff.

For instance, something I'm not supposed to say but I will anyway because I don't care... at Wal-Mart, when condoms or anything in that section (Like KY Jelly or those tiny vibrators) are stolen, Wal-Mart doesn't even lose money. They have an agreement/contract with the distributor that they can claim them out if stolen and they get full money back.

Best Buy won't even see the loss.

Thank you! I said the same thing and it went unnoticed ( I worked at a Richard's Sporting Goods Store (can't say the actual name, word filters)). DSG shrink was 3% I think. Figure a store has 250K worth of merch in it at any given time, thats 7.5K worth of shrink in the store. Shrink refers to any stolen or damaged merchandise.

What does "pay it forward" mean, exactly? You pay "good deeds" forward. Not mistakes. Is he supposed to accidentally give someone something of value in the future?

Yeah, I'd keep it and wouldn't think twice. Billion dollar corporation screwed up and I benefit. They aren't hurt, and I am getting an awesome new whatever it is that this thread was originally about.

Update: I returned the sound bar, and got a $50 dollar gift card for my trouble. I guess it pays to be good.
