With a gift receipt, you can only exchange or get store credit.

Make all returns as soon as possible.

Retailers are gearing for the post-holiday rush.

Bargain Mom and Supper Shopper Jenna Urban said, "Look online". Consult the Returns and Refunds Policy section on a seller's profile. If you don't shop at the store for which you received the card, you can trade the cards for one you'll actually use.

The Dunmore woman offered tips to avoid any shopping stress when making those exchanges.

To return an electronic item, you typically only have a two-week window and you'll likely need a receipt.

"You obviously won't get the full amount back, but most of the time they'll give you a gift card with a discounted price of the value of the item", explained Urban.

Nintendo Switch won't see 64GB game cards till 2019, report says
Nintendo's own large games like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey clock in well below 16 gigs. And if Nintendo is the only one supporting a console, you have a larger chance of getting a failure like the Wii U .

To make sure the trip is efficient, experts advise people to keep all receipts.

Most large electronics, including drones, computers, cameras, tablets, GPS, video game consoles and prepaid cell phones have a 15-day return period and require a receipt.

If you received a gift card this Christmas to a place that's just not around here and you're anxious you won't use it, here's what Urban says to do.

Amazon will let you return a gift for an Amazon gift card credit and won't tell the gift giver of your return plans.

But for some people, Santa may not have thought of the best gift for them. The return policy for this huge electronics retailer says it wants to deliver the "convenience you deserve". The consumer group also warns of others that apply strict rules that can make returning purchases irritating or even impossible.Popular big-box stores Target and Walmart were not included in the survey results.To make it easier on us, Consumer Reports suggests that the following retailers are among the best in the business for returning gifts:Bed Bath & Beyond.

For the holidays, Best Buy extends its return window to account for the fact that some items won't be opened until after the standard return period has already expired-again, with a tiered system to allow regular customers a wider window for returns.

After you take care of the gifts you didn't want, it'll allow for time to enjoy those presents you do like.
