B&N customer service (store or phone) have access to purchase date by serial number, so a receipt is not necessary. Warranty is covered by replacement and not repair and most stores have these replacements on hand, but maybe call ahead before you travel to a store.
Also, make sure you know your account information (email/password) so they can help you reregister the replacement.
My Nook was working fine until this morning, when I turned it on and saw a series of lines on the screen. After holding the power button down and trying to restart it several times, I still see nothing but what appears to be a bad TV test pattern.
If I connect the device to my PC I can see the drive, which is now empty. My SD card in there appears to be fine.
I'm pretty sure this will need a warranty return. What is my best option? Bring it to a local B&N or do I need to send it in?
I purchased this with a credit card and have the statement available. Will that be enough to do a warranty repair? Does B&N have a record of my purchase, or will I get hassled for not having the original receipt?
If you take it to a store you may get a replacement on the spot.
