They told me they'd let me take mine back if I have the yellow slip. Maybe they're different

Yea, plus alot of stores will outright lie to you over the phone on return policies, Wal-Mart being the best example.

There is a chance that if you were in the store with the receipt and a bag of fish they would say yes. Even Petco will take their fish back up to 14 days later, even if it's dead.

Petsmart gives me my money back on fish, so long as I have a receipt.
I don't think they sell fish with the intention of them being "new". Like previously posted, I'm pretty sure they have a 14 day return policy.
You might have just spoken to an uneducated employee who wasn't looking for a confrontation. (too common).

Id try it. Just bring a bunch of fish to them and it'll be harder to say no

Well, if you have a bunch of fish that, neither you or your tank are ready for, and you never wanted that type of fish to begin with. There's no shame in being pushy about the store taking them back.
In the long run it is in the best interest of the fish for the FS to take them back.

Whats unfortunate though is that the LFS rarely is after the best interest of the fish.
