Can You Return A Video Game To Target Without A Receipt?

Target official policy states electronics like a video game without a receipt cannot be returned and can only be exchanged for another product, some stores allow a merchandise return card only used for in-store credit even without a receipt.

It all depends on the store and the people working there, I read r/Target and found different answers, here is what reddit user said

For the most part we won’t return any electronics without a receipt. I will occasionally make exceptions on video games, movies, or cables (i.e. HDMI), or sometimes say the guest can exchange it for another movie/game.

Whilst another user said if you don’t have any form of receipt or barcode you are only entitled to exchange and cannot use the store card, so it will vary from target to target check a store near you to see for yourself.

Electronics should not be returned to a Merch Card unless your store says otherwise. Unopened or not, no receipt or card means an exchange.
