As someone who worked in retail, I know how frustrating it could be when someone didn’t have a receipt. I always keep my receipts and learnt to take a photo of the receipt with my phone and then email the photo to myself. Within my email I have a special folder just for receipts. Never lose anything.
In saying that, I often receive gifts for my kids without receipts. I found it handy when it was something I knew my kids had doubles of, or had grown out of. I’ll just make sure I ask relatives to send receipts with the gifts too, just in a special envelope, so kids don’t see it.
I wonder if they will stick to the policy at Christmas though? That’s usually the time when most people go to return items without receipts.
