A couple who found a wallet filled with $5,000 in cash at Bloomindale's returned it to its grateful owner. According to the Post, couple Sandi Castro and Bruce Migliaccio saw the wallet on a scarf display. Castro said, "I felt panicked for him and felt like I needed to get it back to him as soon as possible." They asked a store manager to put the wallet in a safe while they called American Express, which then called owner Robert Slatkin. They inititally refused his repeated offers of a reward, but they finally "relented and Slatkin gave the couple $300 and an open invitation for them to use the indoor pool in his posh Upper East Side apartment building -- a perk they won't be turning down."
