I have a pair of boots I want to return. I bought them on April 1, so they're about 107 days old.

Do you think it's possible to return them now?

I've got the receipt but I'm not sure if I should try to use it, or tell them I bought them a month ago and don't have the receipt.

Even if I could just get a store credit or exchange it would be great.

Any suggestions?
Perhaps:
1) Received as gift and don't like them (with or w/o receipt)
2) Bought as gift for someone and they don't fit (with receipt)

Either way the best you will probably get is a GC.

Why should the OP lie? He said that the boots have been worn and are falling apart. They can not been returned for resale. If the boots are really falling apart and haven't been abused, take them back and tell them that. With normal use, they should last longer than 100 days.

Perhaps you've got a toothbrush that could do with replacing as well - you could take that in at the same time. Honestly, some people bring new meaning to the word abuse.
LOL :D This is the reason why I do not shop at Walmart. You get what you pay for. I can't believe some people have no shame. The item has been worn for 107 days, lol. If you want product that lasts a little longer, prepare to spend more. Otherwise, live with the consequences!

The designer shoes (and boots) that I buy are bought on sale and they last 3-4 years. In fact, the shoes that I bought never get damaged, I just stopped using them after 1-2 years when they go out of style.

RFD is entertaining as I learn hilarious stuff here that I thought did not happen.

They've been worn (are falling apart), and I have no tags or box...

I guess I'll try with the receipt.
Shouldn't be a problem if it's a manufacturing defect.

Perhaps the defect is not a manufacturing one but a defect in the walk of the person wearing them. Or maybe they've been worn untied and have been dragged about for 107 days. This could result In them getting all ****** up.

I really hope they don't accept the return.

I live in East York and today is garbage day for us. Perhaps the OP can come to my neighbourhood and go through the various trash cans, pull out any discarded items from Wal-Mart and return them back to Wal-Mart for a refund. That should go pretty smoothly.
