I bought something from boots about 6 weeks ago.

Turns out I don't need it now, do you think they would exchange for store credit?

I know I'm unlikely to get a refund now sad

bump, i want to go in tomorrow but scared they'll tell me to sod off!

Depends what it is, and whether it's in a saleable condition. Boots are normally good I think.

Not sure what ther policy is now but it may limit returns to a specific time unless faulty etc. Legally they don't have to offer anything for just a change of mind.

Most stores will offer an exchange as a gesture of goodwill outside their normal returns policy as long as it's in pristine condition. They don't have to, but if you're polite then chances are they'll agree smile

maybe customer services and ask?

go and see, they can only say no... but obviously when the say no, plead a little and offer to take a credit note. Say you couldn't get there, your dog died, whatever. Boots can afford it I'm sure.

Its slimming tablets, i bought 3 boxes and opened one (wont try to return that box obviously) but they made me ill and have 2 untouched boxes still,

I don't think they are able to refund on tablets at all. We weren't when I worked for another chemist.

I've had a look and it doesn't say anything on the site? or on the product page?

shit, they were so expensive sad

Due to distance selling regulations, it's slightly different when ordering online. What does it say on the back of your receipt about returns?

GreenParcel Wed 19-Sep-12 20:19:10

I've not got the reciept, I was going to print my order confirmation,

Rockchick1984 Wed 19-Sep-12 20:41:40

Personally I'd go in and explain about being allergic to the tablets and hope you get a sympathetic member of staff. They are under no obligation to return them, but you may get lucky smile
