    Hello to everyone ... its about tires ..

    Hello to everyone from BC: The administrator of this site assures me the software they use to run it is top notch and that only the users are faulty. Lets agree to disagree for now. As you can see I am a bit out of sorts, because for me, it is all about tires. 2 March, 2013 I live in...

    My wife purchased a hose extension to clean out the eves around the house. The end came off while using it for the first time after about half an hour. Clerk: sorry, no warranty. I've found most Mastercraft items are crap and not worth buying.

    Fraud to Return Identical Products With Different Receipts?

    This topic keeps coming up in other threads. Maybe it deserves its own thread. In one case, a customer had two identical and unopened items. The Crappy People said it would be "fraud" to return the older item using the receipt from the newer item. However, when asked to provide something to...

    "Repair Only Warranty" - No Refund, No Exchange

    A Canadian Tire policy that seems to cause a large number of complaints is their “Repair Only Warranty”. The name doesn’t sound so bad. It seems like it’s only telling you something about the manufacturer’s warranty. After all, how could a “Repair Only Warranty” doesn't sound a whole lot...

    Sale of Goods Act

    Has anybody heard of this before? I came across this on Ellen Roseman's "On Your Side" blog (here: Your right to a refund, credit or exchange | Ellen Roseman). Apparently, "the Sale of Goods Act says that merchandise must be fit for the intended purpose". Basically, if you buy something, then...

    no refund if you don't have wife's debit card

    My wife bought a plastic broom and dust pan. When she got home she noticed the plastic dust pan had a crack in it. I said I would return it and I took it back with the bill. They would give me a credit but no cash as I didn't have my wife's debit card. I talked to the manager and he said...

    Repair only policy

    I am sure that this happens time and time again. I bought an item, and a few days later decided that I didn't want it. Decided to return the unopened item, though stalling for 2 weeks since I have 90 days to return and all. Get to the store... "repair only" no return... excuse me? It says so...

    So this is the story: My mother had car problems where her jeep would overheat. Once she realised that it was happening with her car, she stoped and found a way to bring it over to C-T to get it checked. A mechanic looked over it, did a "Hydro Carbon test" and from that, he said that the rad...

    Stupid return policy to hide employee theft?

    According to Mr.CT Manager his customers are all potential fraudsters to justify the stupid invasion of privacy for returns and exchanges. He goes on and on about how bad his experiences are and how many times he's caught them with fraud. Any study on the break down of his customer base? Age...

    Question for any CT employee

    I understand the policy of recording the information when people buy ammo from CT. But why is it recorded and left in a folder where the ammo is stored? Any gang banger can get a job at CT and have a great shopping list of who owns guns and where they live. Or for that matter just break into...

    How can I hold Canadian Tire responsible for almost killing my family?

    Had a tire change at CT. Family driving on highway. Wheel falls off. Police notice there are not lugnuts on the wheel! Only plausible explanation: mechanic at CT forgot to put the lugnuts on the wheel. Called CT: they are denying it. Wtf do I do? (Family is alright)
