    I know that I have bashed MediaPlay in the past for high prices, and Wal-Mart for any number of things, but I did want to point out that both of these stores have taken returns from me, no questions asked, even if when I lost the receipt. Neither of these brick-and-mortars is perfect, but accepting returns so painlessly should be applauded.

    I think the practice should be condemned. I know you're an honest guy and I'm happy things worked out for you. But the consequences of accepting product back without a receipt is that it encourages theft. Yes, I know most people are honest, like you and me, but we all know that there's enough of the other kind to spoil things.
    So, no, it's not a good idea at all. I can understand a store doing it on a case by case basis, especially if they know you, but it ought not to be standard operating procedure.
