Target is not better.

Evidently last year I returned a few of my daughters duplicate toys to target- no receipt. Tried to return a video game that she already had-unopened, just wanted to exchange for another game she did not have- they turned me away because the total of the returns almost a year apart was over 75.

I went to gamestop and literally 5 minutes later completed the exchange and had the game she wanted.

That is Target's policy just as Walmart has a limit on returns without receipts as well. Target gives gift receipts to help keep you from running into situations like this.

I'm not sure what this means. The total was over $75? Or 75 items? With or without receipt(s)? Thank you.

Target only allows 2 returns without receipt per person (with ID) per calendar year now I think.

I returned 2 gifts to WM, one with a gift receipt and one with no receipt.

They were both handled the same way, full refund on WM gift card.

I was a little miffed I could not get cash on the item with the gift receipt but they said no. Don't see what good it does to even have a gift receipt from there?

We also avoid WM like the plague. After fighting the crowd in there to use my gift card, I return to my car to find 3shopping carts perched on the little grass island next to my car!!! Any one of them could have rolled off and hit my car In about 20 seconds or less, I removed them all and walked them over about 10 steps to the cart corral!!! Gave them a really hard shove in there and it felt good! Can't believe even one person could be so lazy, much less 3 people in about 30 minutes!!!

Did you pay with cash originally for the item you had a gift receipt for?

Plus, at Target, you don't have to look at things like this.......

Why is that confusing? Gift receipts give you gift cards. Original receipts give you back the money as originally purchased.

Thanks for the link to their holiday return policy. I bought my DD a tablet from there and it's awful. Returning this week.

Gift receipts are use to preserve the amount paid, otherwise you get back the lowest price the item was sold at.

If you used the original receipt you get the "money" back the same way it was paid. If your mom used her CC then she gets a refund back to her credit card.

I was comparing a return with a gift receipt and a return with NO receipt....both handled same way...what's the point of the gift receipt?

I guess this makes sense but I happen to know both items paid for with cash. I can understand getting a gift card if no receipt but they should be able to tell cash was paid originally by looking at the gift receipt??

Oh I thought that is why you expected to get cash back. A gift receipt is like store credit for the item, you aren't going to get an actual refund for it.

They don't want to lose the money though.
