BRU did take back all my bottles, but just so you know, they take 33% off if you are missing the nipples (who saves old nipples??). So here is how my experience went.
The first girl I approached told me I could return them in exchange for anything on the feeding wall (meaning sippies, pacis, spoons, whatever). Sweet! But then she is quickly corrected by the assistant manager that is next to her that I can only exchange bottle for bottle. I have no need for bottles right now, so I wasn't exactly thrilled with that news.
So, they tell me I have about $30 worth of credit (they won't tell you the exact total until you are up there with what you want to buy). So determined to out smart the system, I pick up a handful of the Nuby 3 Stage Nursers because each of these "bottles" contain a sippy spout inside of them.
So I get back to the counter and am ready to do my exchange when another assistant manager is there and he corrects the first saying I can get anything off of the feeding wall. So I keep a couple of my Nuby sippies that I have already choosen and go back and get a Foogo Thermos Cup and some of my favorite Sassy spoons for Gracie.
So I am finally ready to check out. I have four Nuby cups, a Foogo cup and a set of spoons. The girl at the register says "These don't say BPA free". I'm like, I know, but they are. I start rattling off a list of the BPA free cups and she looks at me like I have a third eye. She's like, "don't you want to just get BPA free bottles". So I attempt to explain to her that none of my current children are using bottles at this point, so I would rather use the credit for things we can use now and buy BPA free bottles when we are ready for them. She is highly annoyed with me at this point, so I quickly (HA!) finish up and then annoy her some more by asking her to just reuse my plastic bag that I brought the bottles in.
So that was my experience. I know this post was long, but not near as long as the forty five minutes I spent in BRU trying to return those bottles!
