I can understand not giving me the full price I paid over the swap price, but not that they won't refund any of what I considered to be a deposit.
Are you saying:
1.) You bought a 20# propane tank with 15# of propane in it because you had no tank to exchange?
2.) Used the 15# of propane from that tank?
3.) Then attempted to return the empty 20# tank bought
and expected them to take it back
and pay you
If so that is not how it works.
1.) EXCHANGE empty tanks for tanks with 15# of propane in them.
2.) SELL used propane tanks with 15# of propane in them.
"Exchange places" DO NOT:
1.) Charge a deposit for a 20# tank
when you BUY it with 15# of propane in it.
AND they DO NOT:
2.) "SELL", "BUY" or "BUY BACK" empty used
20# propane tanks.
