Right or wrong ?

So the other day I placed an order online from a clothing store ; they had camis on sale originally $12.00 they were marked down at $4.95 ; I bought 2.   Received them and they did not fit.  The actual store is pretty close to where I live so I figured instead of paying postage to return them and waiting for the credit I'd just fo there.  Well the girl scans them and they scan in at the full price ($12.00 each) ; she offers me a store credit of $24.00.  And I took it. 

The other day my MIL in law had the opposite she bought something then found it on sale after for 1/3 of the price and I told her to do what I did and she was like "NO NO NO I couldn't do THAT"   (Like it was wrong)

Original post being said ... once the girl gave me the in-store credit I started shopping ; OMG there were racks upon racks of clothes on liquidation !!   Including my In store credit I bought : 1 knit sweater, 1 really cool t-shirt, 1 criss-cross top and a pair of shoes for $30 taxes in.  BOOYA

I don't think it's really that big of a deal. Think of all the people that did buy it at the regular price of 12.00. The store makes profit, regardless of markdowns. They aren't going to mark something lower than what they paid for it right?

I wouldn't do it either.  I'd feel like I was stealing if I didn't point out that I paid less than the full price.

 I'm on the fense about that - evidently if I would have bought them in the store I would have paid them the full price ... hence, getting screwed vs buying on line.  + I paid shipping on those.  And then, I figure that if they are still making profit while selling them at $4.95 ... they are probably worth $1 a piece. Given how ridiculously maked down all those things were in the store ... I'm not feeling guilty to tell you the truth but I was curious to get people's opinions and thank you for being honest !!

Hell yeah I'd go for it!  They still make a profit,  The money is already in their system so all your doing is trading one irem for the other.

In fact, I'd evenconsider ordering more to return them at the store for full price!
