Game gifted with no receipt, would any retailer exchange?

6 replies 80 views Edited Aug 29, 2012

I got MLB 12 as a gift and I have no interest in baseball, particularly the Show games. I don't have a receipt and I'm wondering if any retailer would take a new mint copy worth $39.99 and do an exhange. I'd rather have something I'm interested in like Ratchet HD Collection, Shadows of the Damned or something. Any ideas?

lol I sold a sealed rugby game I won to Gamestop for about 5 euros ( or less, can't remember ). I tried to sell it in an auction site first.

The only time I tried to trade-in an unopened game without a receipt, I was told that the employees [at Gamestop] wouldn't risk taking it in case if it was stolen. Smiley Indifferent

 

Check your local store's policy- they may be willing to take it for store credit/cash. If you want to compare different stores, try calling them first and seeing how much you can get.

See if WalMart will accept it.  Their reurn policy is usually the best of anybody.

I emailed a Walmart customer service person and was told I would be able to exchange for another item of the exact same price. No store credit, or cash (obviously on that last one). 

Thanks guys.

Woah! Now I feel stupid for not knowing stores accept items for exchange without a receipt.
