No CD-Key Story of the day

post #1 of 80
Thread Starter 
So me and my dad went down to Walmart to buy some cheap headphones for my iPod. So we go strolling through the game section and see that BF2142 was only $20. My dad was like alright lets get it and we can switch up.
We buy the game and I get home. Open up the case to find out that there is no Booklet or CD-Key in the box. Just the DVD nothing else. What do I do now? Can I go back to Walmart and tell them to give a different copy of the game? This is stupid... juts my luck, the one time i buy a game at walmart... ridiculous lol

Most of the time if software is opened up they will NOT exchange it.

Sorry to hear that. BF2 is great as I'm sure you know. I've never used one, but I've read of apps that will show you your key for software, perhaps they might work for a dvd? I'm sure that someone here can PM you a solution to this.

Chalk up one for Wally World....meh.

Oh come on, if the product is unusable then they have to change it.

Tell your dad and bring your dad up there for an exchange. Adults + Adults are easier to exchange opened "games" than Adults + Kid.

If they were foolish enough to leave the manual/cd-key in the box then i guess its been nicked.
If you go back with it why would they believe you.
A shame but you are out of luck I guess.
Edit:Oh,it was wrapped,maybe you have a chance then.Good luck.

Yeah thats going to be my last option if it is possible. I'll probably just drive down again to Walmart and try to get it exchanged or at least get the booklet with the CD-Key on the back!!
