    Has anyone bought anything at a Sprint store lately?
    I got a 700wx and they gave me a ~$50 gross receipts surcharge... what is up with that? I only got one receipt that was about 10 inches long... it's not like they were giving me an entire roll of paper. i'm obviously going to fight it but- has anyone else gotten this?

    ??? What do you mean? I presume the latter part of your post is a joke. Have you called sprint about it?

    as in i bought a $649 treo 700wx, i got charged on top of it ~50 for a "gross receipts surcharge" and then sales tax- i ended up paying way more than i was expecting.
    i wanted to return the 700 because obviously i can find a better deal online, but i wanted to make sure i can live with it before i go ebaying. i have to buy it without contract because i can't get off my retention plan without doubling my bill.

    yes the latter part was a joke- it seems like they were charging me for excess paper usage when buying phones and service- except my guess is that it's a percentage of the purchase- meaning when you buy a phone off-contract, you use the least amount of paper but get charged the most for a surcharge.
    i really think that charging people for wasted paper is a joke and they should instead make use of electronic forms or something...

    Please, stop making jokes. It's hard enough to figure out what the issue is. Anyway, googling the phrase might be a good place to start:

    ok, ok, ok...
    what i'm trying to say is...

    the last time i bought a phone at a sprint store about 9 months ago, i did not receive a "gross receipts surchage"
    is this a new policy at sprint or was i the victim of a cashier mistake.
    has anyone else received this surcharge? and you have were you successful at getting it refunded?


    does that make my question a little clearer?


    when looking at online articles referring to gross receipt surcharges- it only ever refers to services and not to equipment charges, and apparently in my state, it may be as high as 2.32%.

    Much clearer. Thanks. Not that it solves your problem (and I haven't read it all) but this thread may help you:
