How to get a refund on Steam (if you’re from UK)

GJ7Qf

Does anyone know if there’s some sort of law that would help us here in the rest of European Union?

    In The Netherlands we have a similar law, but I’m not sure whether it is also applicable for software.

    Here are two arcticles that cover the subject (for all EC members): http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/ecc/consumer_topics/online_shopping_en.htm and http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/cons_int/safe_shop/dist_sell/index_en.htm

    I’m not really sure whether this grants you the right to return software you already used, but I am pretty sure it does give you the right to return games you haven’t played yet.

    I’m gonna say correlation does not equal causation here, and that the refund was not “forced” due to UK law. The act you cite states that it does not apply to “audio or video recordings or computer software if they are unsealed by the consumer” Pretty sure Steam Support was just being nice.

    You’re spreading mis-information.

    Ugh, I cited that last comment but either I’m blind, or no citation showed up… http://www.reddit.com/r/gaming/comments/kseza/how_to_force_a_refund_on_steam/c2muld1

    Whatever the law says…. steam support should be more helpfull since the only good thing i frequently hear about origin is their support.

    I just tried this to get a refund on Alice: Madness Returns, and they respond with

    “The regulations you are citing do not apply to digital distribution subscriptions, electronic games, or downloadable content.

    Again, as a one-time customer service gesture we can issue you store credit for the amount of your purchase into your Steam Wallet. The credit will also remove the title or item from your account.

    Please confirm that you would like us to proceed with this credit. ”

    Any advice?

    Honestly, use your one-per-account-refund if you think this will be your biggest refund case or give up (You probably bought it as sale for ~10$? Might want to wait and use it to return a full price game). Unless you take legal actions they most certainly won’t change their mind.

    if you are in the UK and in the same circumstances but can’t get a refund refer them to this website. you can claim discrimination against yourself and threaten to sue.

    P.S. as a tip don’t tell them you may sue but imply that you could.
