Starcraft 2 / EB Games - don't want it

Hey guys.

As a gift, I recently got a fully-paid pre-order of Starcraft 2 from EB Games. However, for various reasons, I don't want it right now.

It has been fully paid by my friend's VISA. Do you think EB Games will give me a refund or buy it back as soon as I go to pick it up?

If they buy it back, for how much?

Thanks!

Just cancel the order, the game isn't even out yet. You get all your money back

What they might be able to do is put the amount on a gift card so 60 + tax. Then you can buy yourself that copy of _______ you always wanted. :D

Well, I was assuming that your friend would go with you to cancel, but I guess you're trying to do it by yourself?

Yeah, I agree with easter then, they'd probably give you a GC and you could buy something else in the store.

Logic? on an internet forum? I think it would be a first...

he's asking what we "THINK" rather than what is the policy (since we know that info is easier to get).

well, i THINK for a pre-order you should not be obligated for a refund but then again it's EPIC SC2. i'm sure if that's the case, they would care less and sell it to another person no problem.

they won't give you a refund unless your friend comes goes in with the visa he used to purchase it.. not sure about gift card though

I worked at EB Games for a bit, don't think I've ever run into that request, people usually just tried to get a refund
