    So here's the deal:

    I won an 80gb iPod classic and a 1gb shuffle in an online contest. The problem is, I have no need or desire for either of these and I really want a 32gb touch to replace my current 30gb video.

    They're both sealed in their original packaging and everything, so I'm wondering if I would be able to take them to Best Buy or the Apple Store and exchange them for store credit ;) towards the touch despite the fact that I have no receipts (Best Buy would be nice because I have gift cards there).

    Does anybody have any advice on this or am I going to have to sell these things on ebay to get cash for them :mad:?

    Thanks in advance!

    Apple won't take the return if it wasn't bought at an apple store. I had the problem. I bought an iPod touch from someone who won it at work around christmas time. I tried to return it to an apple store so I could purchase the 80 gb classic. I didn't have the receipt, so they looked it up in their system and told me it was purchased at a best buy so I couldn't return it there. I never tried to take it to best buy, but I'm sure they would have returned it. I still have it...sealed :D

    Take it too an apple store, if it was bought there, you won't have a problem.

    I don't think they're going to take them unless you bought them there.

    Most retail stores won't give credit for merchandise that wasn't purchased from them, and they certainly won't do it if you don't have a receipt.

    ya, your probably going to get stuck selling them, however you should get near retail since they are sealed.

    Sell it to a friend, The Marketplace here, eBay, or Craigslist.

    Apple Store won't take it without a receipt, and Best Buy won't either i'm pretty sure.
