    I got an iPod Nano for Christmas and I really don't have any use for it. Does the Apple store take it for some type of refund/credit/exchange?

    Thanks.

    You'll need to either have the original receipt or a 'gift receipt' to make a return to Apple. If you don't have that, ask whoever gave it to your for the receipt.

    You can always sell the iPod yourself.

    You can return stuff to Apple without a receipt and you will get a gift card.

    I have done so a few times.

    Apple must have updated their policies. I can't see why Apple would let you return an item without a receipt, for all they know you may have stolen the item.

    OK, it looks like it can be returned up to Jan 9 at the location where it was purchased for gift-card/exchange.

    I called them and gave them the serial number. The interesting thing is that they can only check if it was purchased at that store. But the "cashier" is the only person that can check where else it was purchased if not at said store. But I convinced them to give the cashier my email and check for me.

    Was that not already provided in previous replies earlier in the thread?
