Okay, here's my situation:|
My bosses got me a gift for Christmas that wasn't exactly what I wanted, but they gave us gift receipts, so we could return/exchange if there was a problem with any of it. Right, so we got our gifts last night at the Holiday party, and today I went to return it for cash so I could go to a store that definitely has what I want and have the whole process done with. (BTW I was told by someone working at the store where the gift was bought that I would get cash with a gift receipt within 90 days.) Instead, I was given a gift card to the store and sent on my not-so-merry way. I'm fuming, actually, b/c the gift do actually want isn't in stock now and sells out VERY quickily when they do get they're very small shipments in. So, now I have a gift card to a store that I have a very slim chance at getting the gift I want. I could shop online, but it's not in stock there and it says that the item is "arriving in 2-6 weeks." I don't want to pay shipping and I sure as hell don't want to wait 2-6 weeks for it, I've been waiting long enough, thanks.
So, do I have any options? My friend is thinking about buying the gift card from me, but he's not sure yet and I'm pretty open to ideas at this point. I just want the money so I can go get the gift I was originally supposed to get in the first place.
