I finally (after waiting weeks) received a Logitech keyboard set that was supposed to be new in box. Not only was the mouse missing (which I could have lived without) but a key fell off just trying to change the batteries. Many of the rest were obviously glued back on because they stick so bad I have to manually pull them back up to stop the keyboard from treating it as a continuous key press.
Return shipping in my case would be about 50% of the purchase price. On top of that, I would fail to get my promo credits back for the purchase so I would lose out on about 150% of the listing price for returning the faulty item.
If I accept the item, the seller gets 100% of my money in cash and I get a refund as Gameflip credit. Being stuck choosing between the 2 bad options, neither seem acceptable nor fair because either way I’m out money and the seller is rewarded for fraud. I’m pretty sure my cash balance with Gameflip was used instead of my credit card or I could simply initiate a chargeback.
