During the recent BB corporate sale I snagged my Dad a pair of Unlined LHS in Color 8. There were some complications with billing, in that they could not get authorization on my regular credit card. After numerous phone calls to the bank and BB customer service, I just gave them a different card that I have with a much lower limit. In the meantime, my order had been cancelled and the original pair that I ordered in the right size was not longer available, so I got the next size up in hopes to exchange them at a local store.
Finally got the shoes (half size too big) and brought them to my local BB. The sales assoc. took them as a return and located a pair in the right size from another store. He had them bill my card with the discounted price that I received and send me their pair.
They actually ended up charging my card twice and sending me two pairs, however, I received the second pair the week after I had received the first pair. The first pair had a few imperfections, but my Dad already wore them by the time the second pair (pristine) arrived.
I already have a pair of the lined LHS in color 8, but would prefer the unlined.
Should I try to sell my lined pair, which are in pretty good shape, a few imperfections, but Alden would sell them as first quality if the soles were unworn, and keep the Unlined BB LHS?
Should I just return the pristine pair of BB LHS? I paid $500 for them, so I couldn't really sell them for enough of a profit to make it worth the trouble.
I would think I could get $450 for my used pair of lined LHS, so i could upgrade for a new pair of unlined for ~$50 and some inconvenience (best case scenario)
the other problem is that since they charged me for 2 pairs, it exceeded the limit on my credit card, so I either have to return them immediately, or pay it down to get it back under my limit (which isn't a problem)
What should I do, return the pristine pair of BB unlined LHS?
Or keep them and try to sell my Lined LHS?
