I'm sorry to hear that That *****. I don't like doing this - but when I have to, then I do... Make a big deal out of it! Call the manager over, if he won't budge, then get the regional manager's phone number and call him... Things will be taken care of for you. They won't risk a big fight, losing a customer, or getting in trouble from their boss! Unfortunately I had to speak with a regional manager of a movie theatre once (when we had a BIG problem with my son's birthday party & the manager didn't care to apologize or fix things) and he made sure that everything was taken care of & gave us free passes, too.

Print out the page where it says the retailer is responsible & bring it in. Bring in both webkinz and show them what you received, if you haven't already taken the webkinz cares tag off...

I hope that it works out for you... heck, if you have to, bring in your heartbroken daughter! I'm sure they won't think you're lying if you have a cute, innocent looking, little girl by your side!

Good luck

I would def do what people here so far have said in printing that notice about the retailer's responsibility.

If it was me, I'd mention something about them pulling the video of the purchase transaction if they don't believe you when you talk to the corporate office. I doubt they'd wanna go thru with finding it though it'd be easy enough since your receipt would have the time on it, but it would show them that you were serious about it.

The store might not take you seriously, but corporate people are usually another matter. There's this whole idea of "things too small to fix" ... it's a thing from banking but I'm sure it would apply here too. Any noise or bad press you could possibly make would be more detrimental to them than the cost of 2 webkinz plushes, especially since the cost to them is not the amount you paid for the items, but their purchase price from Ganz which I'm sure is at most $5 or something. Just make sure to mention something like "I am a loyal customer of Walgreens, as are [insert relatives, neighbors, friends, etc.], and we can all go elsewhere if you're not going to respect your customers + the agreement you have with Ganz"

I would talk to Ganz. This isn't fair; you should get what you buy!

Default Re: Pet without a tag from Walgreens..

Unfortunately it is so easy for anyone to claim the same thing - I mean, how can you prove the tag was missing when you bought it? Anytime I've bought a Webkinz the clerks have always specified that they were not returnable. Then again, most stores I've been to keep the tags behind the counter, as too many people have been stealing the tags off of the stuffies. I hope that you will be able to get your tags, but I can sure understand the store's point of view too.

I'd call and speak with a manager....
I had some trouble with Beanie Babies 2.0 lately and wanted to return the 2 that I had purchased at our Rite Aid... On the phone, I was told no... I called again and asked for a manager and asked him and he said "Sure, bring them back in"...

Also, maybe ask for an exchange if they others? Maybe they would rather exchange it for another instead of refunding you?

Default Re: Pet without a tag from Walgreens..

^^ I agree. Bring in the agreement about how each plushie should have a tag. If they say no refund or exchanges, try asking for in-store credit.

Default Re: Pet without a tag from Walgreens..

That is terrible, and I am sorry it happened to you. This should be a reminder and a warning to everyone to always make sure the tag is there BEFORE you walk out of the store. Just before the Christmas holidays, my local Walgreens was doing a 50% off sale on Webkinz. I went in and purchased 20 of them for my children to give to their friends for the holiday, and for some to go to charity. I just grabbed them and did not look. When we got home, 3 were missing the blue code tag to activate the webkinz, and 4 were missing the red tag for the Wcares code. In this store there is a very LARGE sign that specifically says NO RETURNS OR REFUNDS will be accepted for Webkinz. So I never persued it, because really, *I* should have checked them all before going to the register. But is sure would be nice if the cashiers checked, too... since they will not allow any compensation for a 'missing' code. It's very frustrating, and I"m so sorry that you are having a similar experience. You can try going in to talk to the manager in person, you can print out the info saying it's the retailers responsibility... just be NICE about it and maybe you will get lucky and have the manager work with you. Best of luck to you.

This is so true. Some retailers will hand you the plushies and tell you to check them first before purchasing (no returns or refunds due to codes). I have also seen some retailers check them for themselves. However, there are some who will just ring them up without checking or asking you to check so it is up to us to make sure that our plushies are in perfect condition with their tags attached. I am so very sorry this has happened to you.
