I’ve gotten some reports from parents who have successfully returned, for store credit, bottles that contain BPA at Babies R Us. This includes used items as well as new and I’ve been told you may not need a receipt. A few readers over at Freebies 4 Mom have reported successful receipt-less returns, however it is my understanding that each store may have a different policy. With so many moms recently emailing us to question whether they should bother spending the money on new bottles, this may come as good news.
My unsolicited advice when going this route:
- Call your local Babies R Us store and ask what their policy is on BPA product returns
- Ask to speak to the manager to clarify what policy they are following and what you need to bring to receive a store credit/return.
- Bring bottles and cups in the store clean and bring receipts if you have them.
- Bring our BPA Free Bottle and Cup Cheat Sheet with you to make sure you’re buying BPA Free replacements.
I’m going off the assumption that they won’t provide this perk forever so I encourage you to get on it if you want to make a change to BPA Free. Let us know how it went!
