Costco is known for it's generous return policy.

The New York Post reports the California woman dragged her used tree into a Santa Ana Costco on january 4 and asked for a refund 10 days after Christmas.

A BARKING mad shopper returned her Christmas tree to Costco this January for a refund - because it was "dead".

An incredulous Facebook user discovered this fun fact last week when he was in line at the checkout counter behind a woman who had dragged in her holiday decor. "I saw the whole thing go down with my own two eyes about 30 minutes ago".

While the rest of us were debating where to abandon our trees, one woman chose to take hers back for a refund.

"Bentley said the woman was "[shamed] to a small degree" by employees and other customers, but the purchase was verified in Costco's system and she was issued a full refund.

People present at the store were shocked as one of them wrote on social media about the lack of moral values of the woman.

"I can't make this stuff up", Bentley's post began.

A man waiting in line behind the woman snapped a picture of the ordeal and was in disbelief.
