    How to get FREE stuff from a shop.

    So it happened to me... I bought an expensive laptop like 10 months ago and all was smooth playing day by day and suddenly few weeks ago it broke, didn't started so I send it to repair because it was in guarantee and I got a call from them that they can't fix it and there is no other laptop on their stock and the only thing that I can do is to go to get my money back from the shop so... gues what that's what I exactly done



    I used 10 months for free laptop and got even my money back spent on it... briliant

    This works for everything under warranty though.

    Yeah, that's the point, not only for my laptop... but for anything else... you use it for a long time and you will eventually get money back if you are lucky as me

    So you are basically telling us that if the item is under warranty and can't be fixed we will be refunded or the same item will be replaced.

    Woah who would have known that.

    Hack:
    A clever or elegant technical accomplishment, especially one with a playful or prankish bent. A clever routine in a computer program, especially one which uses tools for purposes other than those for which they were intended, might be considered a hack. Students at technical universities, such as MIT, are famous for performing elaborate hacks, such as disassembling the dean's car and then reassembling it inside his house, or turning a fourteen-story building into a giant Tetris...
    Just replace the technical terms with life ones and you will have the meaning of a life hack.

    It's unlikely to happen.

    It may not work because
    1) The laptop you had bought is still in stock
    2) No warranty, lost receipt/proof of purchase etc
    3) Damage or fault not covered by the warranty

    Then laptops are pretty reliable now a days. The odds of it just braking and not working is pretty low really, unless you damage it by dropping it etc.

    I'm sure there's more, but that's off the top of my head.

    Then different company's/shops have different methods to handle this. I'm surprised the shop you returned it to simply said 'we cannot fix it'.

    In my country the usually just give you a replacement (the same thing just a working one).
    Only in rare occasions you get your money back.

    But like I said this is no hack at all.
    Would have deleted the thread but since mods already posted in here I guess our new member will learn something new.

    Well the fact was that I bought from online big company ( and that company had that shop in our city too ) so when I searched before sending to warranty they didn't had that laptop anymore on the online site of sales... so as I told doesn't necesarlly needs to be only laptop, you can have a mouse or keyboard or something else and the main goal is :


    You buy something because you got money, lots of them and eventually overtime you get boored of that thing and you want your money back ( but still you used that thing and lost it's value ) and with this lifehack you can get its full value back
