IPOD Touch: can i return it? (16 days from tesco)

  KorgY 16:41 08 Jul 2009


I ordered a Ipod touch from tesco's about 18 days ago, and it arrived on June 22nd., so i've had it 16 days. I have used it - and purchaes software too etc (even upgraded it to version 3.0) , and like it, but I am regretting not getting an "Iphone" (I have the Ipod), as I can't do text's etc.

Can i return this item to tesco's - which is in "as new" condition?. Tesco T&C go on to say:

"""""""""".1 Non-faulty items
Please let us know if you wish to return an item within 28 days of receipt by following the instructions on the back of the invoice. Only some items can be returned to a Tesco store so please do check""""""""""""

It's non faulty, but has been used, so not sure what to say to tesco (direct).

PS: Tesco don't do Iphone I don't think

Thank you very much in advance,

So I assume Tesco will be the only people who will know what can be returned - I should ask them

I know some stores have a policy that certain Items are exempt from returning (Your statutory rights are not affected) as you also point out It has been used and also up graded so I would doubt it.

If everyone changed their mind about a purchase a fortnight or more later merely because they've had second thoughts, the retail trade would be in turmoil.

Your iPod Touch might, in your words, be in "as new" and fully working condition, but if Tesco had sold such a product to you without saying it was a used/returned item, I'm pretty sure you would be miffed, to put it mildly.

You made your choice and you must live with the consequences. You should have taken more care to ensure it would do what you required before buying.

Tesco is entirely blameless.

Sell it to someone else and put the money towards an iPhone.
