Will BB let you return something if...

you've opened it?
Namely, a GBA advance SP that was ordered online and then opened.
I played with it a bit and I'm underwhelmed and starting to regret the impulse buy (I got all excited when I saw it for 69.99).

No problem. Remember to bring your retail box, instruction manual and packing slip!

Did the same with a DS.
Really? Could probably have found an eager buyer in BST/on <a href=../autolink/redirectpage.php?linkid=78 target=_blank>eBay</a>, if this was more than a month ago.

they'll let you return opened items.
The best excuse is to say that you don't want the item.

They won't say No we won't accept your return because you don't want it.

It's ridiculous hearing people's stories and their lies about why they want to return something just say you don't want it and that's that.
Simple and it'll work all the time.

If you don't want it, why did you buy it? ;)

lol, true but I would feel bad for the sales associate that ever tried to use that retort with me :D . Anyhow, basically say you didn't want it. Common thing this time of year ;) .

Clip from "Didn't I Get This Last Year?" by Bob Rivers, sung to the tune of "Do You Hear What I Hear?"

Said my nephew Tim to his Aunt Louise
"Didn't I get this last year?"
Didn't I get this last year?
Same thing every year, Aunt Louise...
"Didn't I get this last year?"
Didn't I get this last year?
"Some socks, some socks,
Some tiny BVDs.
But I can't get them up past my knees,
Could you return them please, Aunt Louise?"

You could try Jerry Seinfeld's reason... "I'm returning it for *spite*". :D Course, it didn't work out too well for him!

This was about a week ago, and it was easier this way. rather than waiting, selling, paying <a href=../autolink/redirectpage.php?linkid=78 target=_blank>ebay</a> fees, ship just to earn maybe $5-10, i could recoup everything in a 10 minute wait.
