Do woolworths take back games without receipt?

Found 25th Jan 2008
My other half bought me the simpsons game for the ds yesterday from woolworths as a suprise but it was just bad luck id just gone and bought it myself earlier in the day. Neither of us have the receipts still as we didnt think we would need them. Its still sealed and not been touched, still in the woolworths carrier bag so have i got any chance of them taking it back?

they will propably offer to let you swap it, well they might be awward but be adament about it and see where you get.

good luck with it.

You would amost certainly need to provide proof that you bought it there with a bank statement or similar.

Woolworths may not take it back as they don't know it was them who sold it in 1st place,its easier to take items back that their own brand when no receipts to be had.
If you no luck getting it back,then either sell it on or trade.

or try other stores to see if anyone will take it back (most likely this is fraud but it could be worth a try)

i cant beleive you didnt keep atleast one receipt. without it i agree you may have trouble but hey i would still try.
bank state,ent is a good idea.

they will ask you when you bought it and roughly what ime of day - they can now check via their tills if it was purchased - if they have sold one they will ask how you paid and if it matches up they will do a refund/replacement

Smiths take stuff back without a reciept

plus its not like your aking for money back just a trade

get your brother to take it back for you then :thumbsup:

why are you asking here then surely your brother will know?

Lolololol.

I bought a car the other day from my local garage but when I got home my partner surprised me and had a better car parked outside waiting for me.

Do you think the garage will give me a refund on the car I bought?










P.S.

My father owns the garage.

Woolworths refund policy is the worst I've ever known. After my baby had lots of duplicate items for christmas I tried to take some of there own brand socks back to exchange. They refused as I didn't have the receipt. They refused and pointed out the refund policy notices which were pasted everywhere. I spoke to the manager but still had no luck. I wouldn't have minded but I had had no problem in a different branch the previous week with a non store branded item.
You might have more luck with your brother though. If not try blockbusters. Took back a game without receipt there with no problems and ended up getting more back than I'd paid.

Oh so funny. My brother hardly owns woolworths, just works on the till. Dont think he has much to do with the decision making in returns do you?

in answer to this question no because

1. it is used (unlike the game)
2. it has deprecitated in valure (again the game hasnt) :whistling:
