Wal-Mart return policy?


 Wal-Mart return policy?
topic by Mr. Ro-Vato - 03-19-2008, 06:00 AM - Boxden > BX GameSpot


Hey, me and my gf got a webcam from Wal-Mart not long ago but it wasn't what we wanted so we just took it back, showed the receipt, and got our money back. We used the money to buy a new one, which wouldn't work on my computer, so we took it back, we did the exact same thing. Just gave them the receipt and got our money back. So what I was thinking is, what if I bought an Xbox 360 at Wal-Mart, then bought a broken 3 red light 360 off Kijiji for $60, then put it in the 360 box and returned it with the receipt, and get back my money. So basically I get my money back and I'd get a 360 for $60.

Would this work?

usually !! like that wont work because its opened electronics....most they will do is exchange it for another one....but if you made to many returns they wont even complete the transaction because you been black listed

And Here Is The Return Policy For Electronics

For Returning Video Game Systems, You Need To Have Your Receipt, To See The Date Of Purchase. And If You Do, Then They Will Call An Electronics a$sociate To Look At It And Make Sure Everything Is In The System.

If It Is Damaged, They Will Only Take It Back If It Is Within Either The Warranty Or Within 30 Days Of Original Purchase, Then They Will Refer To The Manufacturer For Help

People Cannot Get Their Money Back For Video Games Or Movies Or Cd's Because They Are Not Our Property, You Can Only Get The Same Thing If It Was Damaged. Other Than That Your Screwed.

Any Other Q's ?

your walmart must have a different return policy because here you dont need a receipt to return ANYTHING, the only thing is you can only return it for the same product if you dont have a receipt

and if you DO have a receipt you can only get cash back on non-video games/music/movies

if the games are open or movies or cds are open they can only be traded in for the same thing, but if you have a receipt for any electronics you can get cash back or trade in, but you dont have to have a receipt to trade in stuff for the same product, ive returned a broken 360 twice at walmart without a receipt and a vizio TV

Just buy a new one and do a swap. Just CAREFULLY swap the serial number stickerson the units. Clean your old one and put it back in the box like it was new. It works like a charm. I've had to do this quite a few times

most of the times its high school kids doing returns and they dont care, well at least at Target thats how it is.....go in the evening when its busy and the kids are working, you might get one that doesnt care and wont even look in the box

I did this with digital cameras before at Target, but I know for PS3's theres a lil chart they follow for system returns to make sure the serial numbers match up

I did the old swap it out with a dvd burner. The one I had was old, and I wanted a new one, So I went and bought a new one, same brand, Sony. They looked identical, so I just swapped them out and packed everything like it was in the box and returned it with the receipt. Got my money back, and got a free brand new dvd burner.

This works anywhere...

I just to work down there and when they was fairly new maybe a year or so in...they would call a number to make sure that its the same serial code and all that...I don't think it will work unless Microsoft just told them to give the 360's away and they'll pay walmart back because walmart ain't giving !! away for free
