babies r us /formula return policy
Mon, 09-20-2004 - 1:11pm

OK, ive built up a mini arsenal in baby formula, not because i wanted to use it, but well, just because i kept getting all these coupons and well, FREE IS FREE, right? I figured if i didnt use em i could give em to someone else or donate em or whatnot...

Well i got to thinking, does babies r us accept returns on formula? I mean i must have over $100-150 worth of formula and i havent really even spent a dime to get any of it-so if they do accept return i can put it towards the purchase of a carseat or something...

anyone know if they take returns?

Hi Eva

Well i called babies r us

their return/exchange policy is as follows

IF you have the receipt/gift receipt for formula they will offer you a refund

IF you DO NOT have the receipt you are allowed to exchange the formula but ONLY for a different formula

that bites

my friend just had a baby and i doubt shes breastfeeding-ill see if she wants all my liquid formula (my boyfriend asked that we hold on to the powder just in case we need it)

otherwise...pregnancy centers maybe? i mean worst case you donate to one and get a tax rebate-i know i did that cause i got a whole bunch of free avent bottles and those free similac diaper bags and other misc stuff i didnt need and i just donated it...i mean who needs 20 4oz avent bottles? i still have 8 left plus 9ozones and a disposable one etc if i need more i can snag from work (free sample box was left here)

oh well

valiant effort right?

now to figure out how to afford the carseat ;o)
