    didn't know where to put this, so why not here... i've read that you can return merchandise to walmart even without a receipt... is this true?... i have a '07 movie deluxe (stockade) that i want to get rid off that's still in package... how do i go about pulling this off... say it's an xmas gift that i kept putting off returning?

    thanx

    Unfortunately, you're likely to get the last known retail for the same figure; in which case he was probably $3-5.

    You could try but I think you may be out of the return window for that figure. It may not even be in their system at this point. They don't normaly have a 2 year return window.

    You can return something without a receipt. They'll put the money on a gift card.

    You can return items to Wal-Mart without a reciept, but you only get store credit. In your case, in most Wal-Marts those figures were clearanced out, so you would get the last price it was sold at.
    Another thing some people don't know (try) is that Wal-Mart price matches! As long as you have a current flyer from a competting store, they will match it. It's great especially after Thanksgiving, you can get everything you want from other stores and all for the same price without having to go store to store (be it, theyhave what you are looking for)
    Hope that helps!

    1.) Present item.
    2.) Present Driver's License (or State Issued ID).
    3.) Present Social Security Number.
    4.) Receive refund in the form of a store credit on a Wal-Mart Gift Card, at the last known price for the figure. (NOTE: Depending on the the store, if it's a small enough amount, they'll just give you cash. As long as it's under $10)

    There you go.

    My sister discovered that Walmart is ridiculous with electronics.
    She was about to drop at least a C-Note on a mp3 player for her daughter at Christmas, and discovered that by the time she would open it, she couldn't return it. (15 day limit.)

    I do miss the good old days when you could walk in a store with deck chairs off the Titanic and they gave you refunds no questions asked.

    (don't laugh, it beat getting up at 4 am to set up a garage sale to get rid of stuff.)

    Don't blame Wal-Mart. The policies are clearly stated on the wall, and all electronics involving a computer have a 15 day return policy. Computer components such as video cards, keyboards, 45 days. Computers themselves, also 15 days.

    It's so the technology doesn't become obsolete in the interim, and you try and upgrade or pawn it off on them at a time when they'll no longer be able to move it.

    Some WM stores are willing to work with you as long as you're willing to do business with them after the return/exchange in the same visit. It all depends on the management, and who's running the desk. Once in a while you'll find nice people running the store, so if you sister can't read the policies and adhere to them, that's her fault. Sorry, but it's true.

    I think Jorod was saying she almost, but didn't, buy it.

    Question for the OP: was the gift originally purchased at Walmart, and why did you wait so long to decide to take it back? Didnt realize a return policy could be used as a savings account.

    I don't know if it's common to all Wally Worlds, but the ones in my area have a limit on how many times you can return stuff without a receipt. I don't know the specifics or conditions of that is though.

    she didn't buy the mp3 player.
    i can understand (and i can read signs, too) how certain things have a limited shelf life. What she couldn't understand is that un a time when you either buy a gift early or be stuck at the 11th hour with nothing but garbage on the shelves, they should have a christmas return policy- with a receipt.
