I am having a small dispute over the price of a gift, OzBargainers please weigh in.
My 2 sisters and I always give our parents a gift and split the cost 3 ways.
This year I was responsible for purchasing the gift and bought an item from JB Hifi.
I had recently taken advantage of the 15% off gift card offer - I had bought 2 $100 gift cards for $85 dollars each.I had intended to use these on personal items for myself, but as I was purchasing the gift from JB Hifi, I thought I may as well use it on the gift.
Either way I will save $30 by using them and there was no point in saving the gift cards for another time.
I requested that each of my 2 sisters transfer my 1/3 of the full price of the gift before the gift card discount was taken into account as the gift cards were my own business.
What happened next is one sister read the receipt and saw that I had used the cards. After explaining to her my discount she is refusing to pay 1/3 of the full price and wants only to pay 1/3 of the price after the gift card discount. I feel this is unfair as I bought the gift cards to advantage myself.
What does Ozbargain think is the right thing to do? Stick to my guns or relent?
