Costco Selling Used/Returned Items as New -- Is this normal?
The thing dumps out a lot of hot air (common with dehumidifiers but this thing is like a hair dryer) and it seems to me like a rattling noise has become louder.
This actually seems normal for a danby dehumidifer according to some of the (negative) reviews I've seen.
However, I decided to take a look at the dehumidifier closely. The frame has light scratches and the metal grill in front of the coils at the back which suck in air are dented.
Is it normal procedure for Costco to sell refurbished/returns as new?
Especially given its a dehumidifier, which are notorious for breaking within 1-2 seasons, it's more concerning to me that it's used.
