I believe you are only allowed like 2 returns without a receipt a year, so, if your guest fails to give you a gift receipt, and you need to return it, your pretty much up a creek…

I think you’re only allowed up to $75 in returns without receipts in one calendar year.

You are allowed only $75 in returns a year, they use your drivers license.  Once you hit your $75, you have to exchange the item for another item in the same department.  I know, it’s kind of silly.  But, it has actually relaxed some in the past couple years.

The gift registry is really easy for your guests and automatically includes gift receipts when they buy something off your registry…not that everyone still includes them.  A lot of negative things are said about targets return policies, but their policy is still better than it used to be.

We decided to avoid Target for that reason, and I have personally experienced the pain it is to return something without a receipt.  Not worth it in my opinion, they didn’t have great incentives to register in the first place.

I just registered with Target, in the information they gave me it says, “If you don’t have a gift reciept: Just go to any Target store kiosk and print out your Gift Purchase Log. Then take this log along with your item to Guest Services…”  So it seems like it shouldn’t be a problem.  Also, you have up to 90 days after your wedding date to return/exchange.

Hope that helps!

so far we haven’t had to return anything from our registry there, we tried to return something off registry and they wouldn’t take it. our main problem with target is that things often go out of stock, and they don’t tell you what went out of stock, it just says “item is out of stock” and you just have to kind of hope you remember what it was so you can find something else you like. and my fi’s main problem with them is they have no wii’s in stock!

I didn’t like the Target registry website. It was sloppy looking and often had items that were out of stock. We ended up registring through Amazon instead – they had all of Target’s items there.

But Bed Bath and Beyond was by far the best registry we did. Their returns were so easy and they give you cash if it was on your registry (no receipts).

Wait – I registered at Target and took things back with and w/o gift receipts, and had zero issues. And they didn’t require ID, they just pulled up my gift registry. And i returned a Wii (yes, the hubs put that on there… and we bought one with some gift cards we received, only two receive one from the registry in the mail the day after we bought ours) and they just took it back – and that’s waaaaay over $75. Is it different by store/region/something?

A friend of mine registered with Target and she said they were bad at taking the items off the registry, so she ended up with 10 of the same exact set of towels.
