We went to the Bed Bath & Beyond Rock Your Registry Event in MN last night and it was fabulous! If you have a chance to go to one, do it! The evening started with yummy treats from a local caterer, including like $40 cheesecakes. Ladies from Mikasa and Calphalon did some presentations, and then an employee went around with us with a scanner and gave us tips. Everyone went home with a gift bag, which was really legit stuff, maybe around ~$50 in value?
They also had multiple door prizes ranging in $10 giftcards to a Kitchenaid Stand Mixer to a Calphalon pan set. We won big!!
~$1000 of Mikasa including 2 place settings, a pitcher, and a platter of Cocoa Blossum, 2 place settings of microstripe, 2 place settings of another more casual chocolate one, 4 stemless wine glasses, 4 normal wine glasses, 4 cheers martini glasses, a cool serving platter, candlesticks, and a 65 piece flatware set!
We weren’t planning on registering for china, and now that we have odds and ends I’m not sure what to do…

@mkim: looks like Madison, Richmond, Dallas, Detroit, and Hartford are the only ones scheduled to still occur

Dang! I wanted to attend this, but didn’t because I really would have only been going for the free stuff–my registry there is already done. I RSVPd but then backed out once I found out they were going to hand out scanners and let you go at it. I didn’t want to show up, take free stuff, and leave, but didn’t want to pretend like I was scanning stuff either lol. Plus it was late after work one night, I would have had to go by myself, and I was tired.
But looking at all your swag makes me wish I had gone!!

Thanks for posting!

Did a Google search and found a link. Looks like it is only in select cities. Sadly, none in Cali.

I’m definitely gonna go to the “Detroit” one now! Even though it’s not actually really. Lose to Detroit, lol.

Oh wow, congrats!!! You made out like a bandit!
You’re lucky, when Darling Husband & I went to the BBB registry event last year, all we got was free food (Olive Garden pasta). No goodies. (And we didn’t win anything either.)

I saw this event ad on The BB&B site when I was updating my registry! But boo 🙁 There isn’t one in my area.
