Hi guys.

I bought a phone back in November (sony z3) - and since Nov 1st Amazon is extending returns until Jan 31st (even if opened, for phones/electrical).

So I can return it end of this month, and the new gen of phones will arrive march-ish.

The normal returns policy (from Amazon UK, not marketplace sellers) is 30 days.

So - Do you think I could send back my phone at end of Jan, buy the same one again, send it back in of Feb, buy a new one, Send it back end of March and then buy a new gen of phone (whatever it may be).

Sure it's a bit of faf, but it's really only loading contacts/swapping sim cards and each time i'll be returning it at the full value of the purchase.

What would your opinions of this be (I'm a big phone geek tbh), and, what do you think about using Amazons own return policy in this way - are there any issues with this?

Thanks!

@GenTom: And you're ok with that sort of dickish schemes? In my mopinion, if you want the new gen just buy it then. If you don't have the money stick to your (I assume) functioning phone.

@korvus: Well it's simply taking advantage of their own returns policy. With the intention of finally purchasing a full-price, flagship phone in March,

@GenTom: But you are aware that's not what the return policy is there for, right? I'm not trying to judge you, and if you feel ok with it and can do it then go for it, but I would feel uncomfortable taking advantage of a policy that is there to help unsatisfied customers.
