TikToker shares ‘secret’ to avoid long holidays in Ross

A viral “attack” by TikToker to avoid long holiday queues at Ross and other stores, has sparked debate among commenters.

The hack, shared by user @keepmilagros, has garnered 2.2 million views on the platform.

“Later on, I’m going to hate myself for posting this but…” text overlay on video with text. “During the holiday season, to avoid long queues, buy an item you don’t need later to use in return. There, you can come back and buy your items without having to wait in long lines. “

Current and former Ross associates have taken to the comments section to try and warn others about this option, with some saying the return line is for returns only.

“As a former associate of Ross, I can tell you this is a LICE,” one commenter wrote. “Maybe they allowed it before but not anymore for this very reason.”


Another former Ross employee said the “hack” might not be worth the extra wait in the return leg.

“Okay but they still make you wait 15 minutes before taking you away,” they wrote. “They prioritize purchases. (Coming from a former Ross employee.”


Some commenters wrote that TikToker was “playing the system” and had revealed a well-kept secret.

“Why would you say anything… it’s a secret,” said one.

“Bestie, with all due respect, VOICE UP,” another wrote.


Even the original poster admitted that if people knew about this “hack”, they would become more strict about their purchases at the return counter.

“If they find this, they will let them wait even longer,” she wrote.


One commenter suggested avoiding “hacking” by starting holiday shopping before the last week before Christmas.
