I can't, apparently you can't return items to a different Home Depot than the one you bought from. They don't even have access to the receipts at a diff store! (So weird).

The #1 reason for which I rather not go the Craigslist route is because each time I posted there in the past I got really low balled! These are brand new unopened.

I know it's not fair but people go on CL to find bargains...if they could just go to HD for the same price they would probably prefer it...ironically because they can always return it...I would fight tooth and nail once you have the credit card statement...and if you have to take it "higher" you tell them you want a flooring expert to come inspect the floors you already installed to see poor quality and try to get the whole order refunded!!!

The floors are great, just not meant for kids toys! Or boys banging toys all over them!

Yes, and that's why I didn't post on CL.

I will go higher if needed, because this sucks especially since the money was going back to HD anyway for carpet.

Keep an extra box or maybe two, it might be discontinued and need it.

You just need to look at this as 'One of those Lessons in Life' and move on. Sell it for whatever you have to take not to have to stack it in the garage for later and move on.

Not likely; we're doing carpet and taking out the one we already put in. In this type of house, wood floors upstairs really doesn't work. It works in "theory" and "beauty" but not much else.


You know, I would take it as a "lesson" if we lived in the 60's and the technology to trace a purchase was missing. Now, not so much. Something brand new and unopened cannot be sold for nothing.

Home Depot probably won't take back this flooring, even though you located the billing info, because you bought it a year ago. I know they have time limits on returns to protect themselves. From their point of view, it'll probably be impossible to get a matching dye lot at this point, so unless someone had a project exactly the same size as yours the flooring probably wouldn't resell. I think your best bet is Craigslist although I doubt anyone would pay full price for it. Do any of your friends or relatives need flooring?

Hardwood floors are fine up stairs but bamboo isn't a hardwood, it's grass. Its softer than any hardwood so it scratches very easy.
You'll be lucky if you get $1 sq ft for unopened boxes.

We're looking to carpet the entire upstairs now and I am trying to figure out where else to try and sell these?

Obviously, they are not "Craigslist" material since they are brand new, and I am not looking to give them away or donate them. Are there contractors websites or other flooring avenues that could buy them from us?

I am not sure what to do here.


Thanks.
I don't know about the time frame that has been elapsed but other than that Home Depot is very easy to return items IF you have paid by credit card as they can track the sale back to the card and refund the same card.

If you don't have the card the rules may be different and usually they refund for the lowest sold price.
