Gutfeld expands on nefarious possibilities over stores letting customers keep their returns

Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld expanded on all the nefarious possibilities that may result from retailers reportedly allowing customers to keep the items they are returning after issuing a refund.

“If you bought something crappy, here is a return policy that might make you happy,” Gutfeld said. “Some retailers let you keep your unwanted purchases instead of returning them. Fun fact, sex toys have been doing this for years. But it turns out it is more of a hassle for them to take care of returns. Thanks to the supply chain crisis and soaring gas prices, stores like Target, Walmart and Gap say they already have too much inventory that cost a lot to store. In other words, some of our products are so bad, just keep them.”

“It’s amazing, just letting you keep your unwanted items AND give you your money back, too. This is more exciting than finding an onion ring in your French fries,” he added, joking that now might be “the perfect time to buy gold and be dissatisfied.”

“There must be some limit, though, to what you are allowed to keep, right? If people were forced to keep things they no longer wanted, Jamie [Lissow] would still be married,” he quipped.

Gutfeld’s commentary comes amid the reporting that some retail outlets are facing the problem of having too much inventory on hand when it comes to certain items, be it workout clothes or garden furniture. The excess inventory is costing retailers a lot of money to store and, rather than compound the problem with returns, they’re instead refunding the purchase price and telling the customer to keep the item.

He then asked guest Lara Trump if she returned things, noting that it’s a “pain in the neck.”

“First of all, I am the worst because I do not like to go in a store and try things on so I over order knowing I can just ship it back and return it very easily. They usually include the label, you just pop right on there, but this whole thing is really kind of crazy. What could possibly go wrong? We are just going to let you get your money back and you get to keep your product? I mean…”

Gutfeld chimed in that people could then sell the products on the streets.

“I am the worst returner and my husband hates it because we have boxes stand up everywhere. Sorry, honey,” Trump added.

Fellow guest Brian Kilmeade offered another possible scenario.

“I buy a  jacket, I get home, it doesn’t fit or I don’t like the jacket, I want to return the jacket. They say I am going to give you back your money, and you keep your jacket,” he said. “So I could have lied. I could love the jacket. I could call up and I could say, I don’t like my jacket. And they can say, here is your money. And I keep the jacket.”

“Why do one jacket?” Gutfeld asked. “Why not go into the place, buy like 20 jackets and then go ‘none of them fit,’and you just go on the street with the rack and sell them — you get your money back and you sell them.”

Trump, who lived in New York much of her life, then offered a very real alternative given the state of criminal justice today under Democrats.

“Or you could actually steal them and then get out of jail in a couple of hours and you sell them the same way, it’s the same thing,” she said.
