    distance selling refund rights? 2nd Oct 17 at 4:04 PM
    A retailer is refusing to refund my online purchase (well within the 14 day period) because the item was in the sale. Is this legal? Thanks.

    As above.

    They are in the UK.

    I sent them a reply saying that distance selling laws meant they had to accept my goods back and give me a refund. The Customer Services woman said, 'oh, you want to CANCEL your order'. Er, yes dear. That's what I meant when I said I wanted a refund.

    This is a top end brand trying to wriggle out of its legal obligations. Not impressive.

    That sounds more like it was a misunderstanding rather than a refusal to honour your rights.
