Taking Ps3 game back to shop with no receipt

Does anybody know of any shops where I can take a sealed game back for a refund (obviously it would be store credit). I bought from Zavvi but lost the receipt. As I paid cash (hence could not use a bank statement to show I bought it from them), they would not refund it so I'm now stuck with a duplicate game (LBP for the ps3).

Anyone know of a store where I can exchange this for store credit without a receipt?

Has anyone taken anything back to asda for a refund without receipt?

I've taken stuff back to zavvii before without a reciept and they give me store credit no probs.
The chances are it either depends who you got and your timing. The store was probably really busy and refunding/exchanging does take a bit of time - ie they have to get a supervisor or manager to authorise it etc. So maybe wait again after chrimbo? I'm sure alot of stores you go to now will be the same.

Cheers leefal, I was thinking of doing it after xmas as well and seeing what happens and just arguing in the shop until I get what i want :o)

Thay Should Swap It For Some Thing Else.
I Had Loads Of Games Which I Bought In Other Shops For Less Then I Took Them Into Differant Shops Where They Gave Me More.
I Used To See What Game I Had Then Look At The Selling Price In Differant Shops
And Then Swap Them.
Done This About 30 Times With Out A Receipt
Ended Up With **** Loads Of Games

Thanks all, much appreciated. I'll give hmv a try after xmas and see what they say. Asda's a bit far for me as I live in central london.

Merry Christmas everybody.
