My wife received a 19 inch flat screen t.v. as a gift in a raffle ,it was too small for what we wanted. My wife was told that it was purchased at the target store we are rating and it had Target security tape. We decided not to open the box and take it back to the store for an exchange to get a bigger one. The girl at the counter told us she could not take it back with out a receipt. We tried to explain that we wanted a bigger t.v. and did not want money back,she called her supervisor and we were told the same thing.My wife had to make many phone calls and wasted a lot of time but finally got the receipt and we ended up returning for cash refund. Now with the cash we went to Best Buy and bought a bigger and better t.v. I would like to also note ,that while we were there another customer was not able to return some children items with a receipt !! She was told the system had shut down her receipt and would have to return another day. I think some one she be able to over ride the system and make it convenient for the customer.
we have had to return items similar to Walmart with out a receipt and had no problem. I recommend Walmart for better piece of mind.
