I have NFL Fever 2004 brand new in package but I want ESPN football instead. What stores can I try to take them back to for an even exchange w/out a receipt? We have gamestop, wal-mart, target, circuit city, best buy, etc. but I don't know which ones would work

Thanks

I believe any unopened game is worth the same it was sold for in retail at any store. If you go to a store that sells video games, just tell them it was a gift and you have no receipt. They'll gladly exchange it 9 times out of 10.

I tried it before. It didn't work. I mean the game was still in the box, and I was told I could only get trade in value. I even said it was a gift. No dice. Maybe a major department store would but a stor like Gamestop, or EB I don't think so.

I bet you could trade it at wal-mart without a receipt. I've traded in a gameboy color there that I siad was broken, but I fried it ACCIDENTALY OF COURSE! I didn't have a receipt, the box, or anything and returned it. It wasn't even bought at a Walmart. I live in Tennessee and it was bought in a Best Buy in Minnesota about 3 months before. They just took it back no problem and let me pick out a new one. Its not quite the same thing, but it shows how easy it is to return somthin to wal-mart and that you don't even need to have any proof- just be a good liar.:wink:

i do it at walmart all the time.....i buy a game for 10 -15 bucks at EB thats worth 50 at walmart.......do what crazy said,say it was a gift and walmart will give ya 50 bucks store credits then ya can use it for a game.....bestbuy will do this too.......you cant do this at a vid game store like eb or gamespot though......they'll just give ya the trade in credit....those bastages,then they'll sell it for 50


edit: yup,walmart is the best place to do it :D

If you scratched off the card for the two month free XBL, You're outta luck. Retailers have been instructed to look for the certificate before accepting returns.
