Just be happy that you're the kind of person that would return the items. Feel ashamed that you're the kind of person who would barter over what kind of reward you should get for doing the right thing.
Re-read the thread. He didn't ask for a reward, the rep (unknowing to the OP) wrongfully offered what would have been a $600 credit towards a future loan.
To borrowlenses.com, that's not $600 - it's the usage of equipment that has been bought and paid for via numerous other rentals, etc. It doesn't mean that giving the rental to the OP wouldn't cost BL anything -- but the mistake effectively cost the OP $600 because he chose to re-budget his already low budget, thinking that expense had been covered.
Granted, we're only getting one side of the story (I'm almost surprised nobody from BL has found or commented on this thread yet), and until we hear from them it's the OP's word against theirs, but if I were BorrowLenses, I would have given him the rental for sure (and then I wouldn't have canceled a future order from someone who prove that they had integrity), unless the OP wasn't completely forthcoming in how he responded during communications.
Man, I didn't even see Quizzical_Squirrel's response above, nailed it.
