Default Argos - will they accept a return for exchange without a receipt?

Hope this is the right place for this, but Our son got two items for christmas that were the same (Nikko Vaporizr RC car), one from us and one from a grandparent.

Unfortunately, neither if us have the receipt, and they were bought with cash, not credit/debit cards.

However, each item was bought from Argos, as each box has an Argos catalogue number sticker on it.

Question is, would Argos give an exchange (don't want a refund, just to swap for something else) on one of these items, without receipt/proof of purchase, even though the box is unopened and has their catalogue number sticker on it?

Failing that, we'll just have to try and sell one on eBay/Gumtree.

Cheers for any advice offered.

the store wouldn't do it without proof of the date item was purchased there is usually a picking sticker stuck to the box of every item bought in store have you not got this either? as that usually has a date on

Nah, no picking slip/sticker on either... like I say, just the one with the catalogue number.

Never mind, knew it was a long shot. Will just have to put one of them on eBay/Gumtree, so we can get something for it so we can get an alternative gift for our son.

It can be returned. I work for argos, and we will exchange or refund to the lowest value it was sold for as you have no proof of what was paid.
