Hi all....

We have 17 unopened boxes of Coffee color bamboo flooring, and I can't find my receipt. We got them last year at Home Depot on Bruce B Downs thinking we would update the upstairs, but unfortunately, they won't work upstairs because my kids and their toys have already ruined the ones we put in their rooms. 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.

Have you tried returning it to HD? If you paid via credit card, they can find the data in their system. I once returned something to HD that was bought at least 9 months before; no receipt, but they scanned the barcode and my cc and matched it and gave me the refund (credit against my Visa card).

Home Depot should still take them, just tell them you don't have the receipt. You will get store credit, that's the only downside if you don't plan on shopping there again.
I had to return a lot of items to Lowes when they were way past the 90 day period, and never had an issue getting my money back. I think Home Depot is opposite and very set on the 90 days with receipt as I once tried to return a defective vanity and they wouldn't take it.

They won't take them back. I even dug up the card they were bought with and they still won't give me store credit. We went for that first. I actually called my bank and asked for a paper statement that lists that purchase, and I am still waiting to get it sometimes this week, but if they won't accept that either I am not sure what to do. We were going to actually have them install carpet and wanted to use that money towards that, but they've been completely unhelpful.

You can sell new flooring on Craig's list...just set a fair price and stick to it...if you don't want a million calls use the email only option...but of course your best bet is having the bank find the original charge and then if the local store still refuses get names and contact corporate!!! Good luck!

I agree with Irish. If the local store refuses contact corporate and see if you get at least a store credit.

It has always been my belief HD caters to contractors, Lowes caters to individuals. For all of you looking to move here keep this in mind.

You might have a luck selling it on craigslist. Just estimate the area your can cover with all these and set a price.
Do you have a picture of the color and how much you want for it? I might buy it from you since we are planning to update flooring.

Yeah you could easily sell on craigslist if the HD credit doesn't work out (which I'm kind of surprised it isnt). I like buying this kind of stuff on craigslist.

Yeah, I have a photo of the boxes, and each box covers 25.76 square feet!
They are sold online at HD for $59.42 per box. These are them:
Home Decorators Collection, Hand Scraped Strand Woven Walnut 3/8 in. x 4.9 in. x 72-7/8 in. Length Click Lock Bamboo Flooring (29.86 sq. ft. / case), HL272H at The Home Depot - Mobile

I was asking what we paid, same as online...they are unopened and were stored upstairs in the office.
