    Got a gift I already have, want to exchange it at a store

    My cousin from CA (I'm in MD) sent me God of War and Shadow of the Colossus for the PS2. I already have Shadow of the Colossus, but she didn't send any receipts. Does anyone know of stores accepting exchanges for store credit or something like that without a receipt? I know CompUSA last year would give store credit for something without a receipt...

    Can't say I did, but maybe if you didn't take the shrink wrap off, you might be able to return it to the store?

    How strange..I was just reading about this..
    http://www.yahoo.com/s/468612

    "Each year at holiday time, retailers examine their return policies and make changes based on their experiences with their customers," says Joseph LaRocca, vice president of loss prevention at the National Retail Federation, a trade group. Many stores are getting stricter, primarily by employing computerized authorization systems to track and limit returns. The goal is to curb fraudulent returns, although innocent consumers can easily get snagged by those systems.
    I hope you have better luck..

    As long as you know what store they got it from you shouldn't have any problems returning them for at least store credit as long as you haven't taken the shrink wrap off.

    As long as it's unopened, almost any store will give you store credit without a receipt. It's very commn; it happens more times than number of digits in Jimz' age (and that's a lot)

    God of War is awesome, Got it on my PS2. Some stores do credit if you want to buy a new game however the amount you get for it is questionable, perhaps its low and perhaps I'd get more if I sold it on an ebay like web site.

    without a receipt, and as long as the package is un-opened, you will get the lowest price for the item the store ever sold it for (So yoiu will get store credit for the lowest sale price ever on the game)

    thats how many of the stores should handle your return.

    at xmas time alot of stores are more forgiving on this sort of stuff, but.... act fast because many only have a limited window of opportunity where you can get full price credit for it, now if it has gone clearance in that particular store you may not be so lucky, so act fast

    on another note, it is a video game so places like ebgames etc.. .might be your best bet for trading etc...

    good luck
