Coffee Makers and Common Sense
I once got hold of some Kenyan coffee beans from one of my local suppliers only to find that a week later the coffee was rotting, As you can probably understand I was not too impressed so went back to the coffee store to see if I could get the beans exchanged. The unfortunate thing was that I had lost the bill of sale and had nothing to prove that I had bought the coffee, it also turns out that the cashier had left the day before so due to my stupidity I had lost both my money and beans.
There is also another very good reason for keeping your receipt safe when buying coffee, imagine for a moment you buy an Italian Coffee grinder and a few days later a much better product arrives on the marketplace, it goes without saying that you will not be able to return your original coffee product however all is not lost, you might just lose a little bit of cash but if you have the receipt for the Italian coffee grinder the this is what you can do. Because the coffee grinder is so new it is well worth selling it on an auction website that deals in food and drink or coffee related products, at least as your grinder is new you will be able to get most of your money back and buy the superior grinder that has just been released.
Sales receipts are more valuable as you might suppose and they are closely connected with product insurance and your consumer rights, again imagine for a moment you buy an Italian coffee brewer or possibly a stainless steel coffee blender , then something happens and your coffee machine is destroyed, lost or stolen, if the coffee store receipt is safe then obtaining your insurance payment will be doubly fast when compared to if you had you lost that first cashiers slip.
If you buy one of the expensive top of the range Bunn coffee machines then you might certainly be open to buying an extra warranty, if the coffee store can supply a reasonably priced one then you will certainly need to keep the sales ticket. You will find that 99% of the warranty companies will insist on this so you should keep it somewhere safe, hopefully you will never need it but if you are buying an expensive coffee maker then it may be advised.
Even if you do not obtain a warranty when buying a coffee grinder or some other kind of coffee machine you will certainly need a receipt, there may be a number of reasons for you to return to the coffee merchant or electrical store and without a receipt you needn't bother going. Coffee products are no different from any other item you might purchase so you must ensure you keep that sales ticket.
