Re: Sneaker store required to scan drivers license for returns!

I haven't seen signs like that $10 minimum in years in Hawaii. Even small stores allow you to use a credit card for any purchase.

In addition some states have and possibly still do put your SSN in the barcode.
That would kind of negate your previous post then.

Anyone can write software to read the 2d barcode or to grab the less complete info off of the magnetic stripe.
How does having your social security number in the barcode negate the fact that anyone can decode the barcode if they know the open standard?

How would any one need to know that? That's a violation of privacy. I call BS on any store that needs my SIN (SSN).

My SIN (SSN) is NOT to be used for ID; it never has been.

Why would they have to call DMV?
True but if you're building a database to sell which is easier. Possibly having a Social Security Number on there doesn't make it any better.

Also keep in mind that some places like bars are using the 2d barcode to verify licenses.

You do realize each store have a manager that decide how stuff works, right? My store near my house no longer will refuse sale if you don't show id. Your store might still be doing it differently

Pay cash and ask for a store credit upon return...In my opinion you have more to lose giving them a credit card in the first place.

For many reasons..

Just want to make sure I've got this straight:

It's your contention that you forced Lowe's to change their credit card practices?
And that there are three stores which lost the ability to accept credit cards due to actions on your part, yet you're unable to recall the names of those stores.

Is that correct?

Yes i forced lowes to change practice by filling complain with bbb. As those 3 stores, they are to small to memorize the names and all of them are food service stores

edit:Another member that goes by remove i believe also forced lowes to change their practice

basically a huge return database that many stores subscribe too. If you do "too many" returns (you are not told how many you can do) then they will deny your ability to return in the future.

Some stores have similar policies with their internal databases.

I have no problem with it if the limit is stated (walmart/target have something like 2 returns per year without receipt).

But when it's some magical number that you don't know until you hit it and suddenly can't return anymore that is wrong.

Costco now does this which is actually absurd because of their "forever" return policy. They still have the policy but if your ratio of returns to purchases is too high they will deny all of your returns. Also they don't consider if the item is defective.

If they aren't comfortable with the number of returns they are getting then they need to change their policy to have a timeframe.

Re: Sneaker store required to scan drivers license for returns!

Costco has a one year return policy (with a few exceptions), not a 'forever' policy. I've never had them deny me my return. Ever.

Re: Sneaker store required to scan drivers license for returns!

I've filed the same complaint form against stores here, and where I grew up on the Mainland, for pulling the minimum purchase thing or for insisting on seeing my driver's license when I used to sign the card and not put "see photo ID" on it. I also filed a complaint with American Express about several stores on the Mainland that would not take a $20 American Express Traveler's check (but that is a different situation).

I don't recall the name of the stores on the mainland. As for ones here, yeah, they had to change their practice so did at least one of the ones on the Mainland that would not take a $20 Amex travelers check (as they took them happily next time was there) and I had photo ID with me (two photo ID's). Those incidences were maybe ten years ago not recently. I also got Macy's to accept Macy's cards where the customer does not sign the card but instead puts "See Photo ID" on the back of the card.

As far as Lowe's, I think their practice is what every store should do. I don't frequent businesses that do not ask for photo ID. The credit card I have been using the most (until recently) has my photo on it but I still always provide my driver's license also (look - no touch). If you don't want to show your driver's license then get a state I.D. card and show that or show another credit card that has your photo.

I've never heard of or seen this in any store out here, is this an east coast thing?
