That is quite a fine post you got there, that should be a sticky or something.

Quick question:

For instance EB, Do they have to receive the games in 30 days or the package just have to be postmarked?

Thanks.

I would think by the post-marked date, but you should email their customer service to find out for sure. Link provided above.

I called EB and mine said they take returns from their online store so you might want to add that there (with a possible YMMV).

Merchandise purchased at EBgames.com may not be returned or exchanged at EB Games stores. The policies of EB Games stores may vary from EBgames.com.


A mention of that was already in there, but I'll reword it. Thanks! :)

Actually EBgames.com have updated their site, it now mentions that games that were bought from ebgames.com can be exchanged or returned at a Electronics Boutique store if you have the original packaging list(order form). Games bought through EB catalogue cannot be exchanged or returned at a EB store. This policy has now been updated in their return policy in the help section of the site.

this is one excellent page you have compiled, I think I will just copy and print out the list for further refererence, so It'll be convenient when I have to return something. This will save me time, and come in handy; I think I'll just paste it on my wall.

Thanks for your efforts, I appreciate it :)

Thanks for bringing that to my attention! I fixed it above. :)

Would you like the return/warranty policy for Game Crazy? If so I will type it up for you.

I haven't heard from you so I went ahead and posted Game Crazy's policy. It was rather short anyway. 8)

Also added Buy.com, GoGamer.com, and Newegg.com, covering almost all of the stores listed on CAG's front page.

Moiety, its actually a 90 day warranty on used.

-90 warranty on Used software and hardware. You are allowed to try before you buy, so we consider all used sales final (can't return because of dislike)
- New product is under warranty for 7 days after
purchase
- Money back within 7 days of NEW items if unopened.

Someone should make a Pricematch thread as well because this is a good idea.

Ok, walmart B&M return policy question. If I were to buy 3 games in the upcoming TRU deal, keep two of them unopened, could I take the unopened games to Walmart without a receit and get full credit for them? I've heard people say that you can return 3 things per year to walmart every year without a receit but it's safer to ask here.

Ok, this sticky was created for the sole purpose of quickly accessing the various return policies of online and B&M stores, i.e. items you have purchased and for whatever reason have decided to return them and want to know the policy (what you need to do, have, etc.). This is not meant as a resource to try to "scam" stores, (returning merchandise from other stores to get more money back). Please refrain from these questions.

Blockbuster/GameRush return policy.

BLOCKBUSTER guarantees the quality of previously viewed movies and games. If there is a problem with the movie or game, bring it back with your receipt within 30 days and we will exchange the movie or game. Refunds if unopened.

All new unopened hardware can be exchanged or refunded with a receipt(unless it was done on a membership account). No returns for defective systems as they come with manufacturer warranty.

All preowned hardware comes with a 30 day guarantee. Exchanges and refunds only given with receipt unless they were done on the account.

Preowned software has a 30 day guarentee. No returns if you don't like it unless you want regular trade in value credit.

Thanks Cory! I'll add this to the front page!

I believe the existing return policies are still the same. If I am missing any stores that you guys want on here, feel free to pm me or post either the store or the whole policy as CoryCubed did.

The EB return policy on used games seems vague. Is it possible to return a used game for a refund/credit? I want to buy a used game, and use it for a trade in deal, but I don't want to be stuck with the game if the deal doesn't work...
