I haven’t, but I’d just be happy that they’re added to your registry. It will make it much easier to take them back and get something else that you want.

We didn’t resister at Buy Buy Baby, but at Bed Bath and Beyond (ours has baby stuff and it’s together with BBB). I had the same thing happened and called up there thinking someone’s registry got merged with mine or something…there was actually a breast pump purchased and added to my registry that was less expensive than the other one I had registered for, both showing purchased! (I only got one pump, the less expensive one was the newer model that replaced the one I had registered for and they just took it off too) There were also some other things added that I didn’t want.

It means exactly what you thought. Someone bought you something and had it added to your registry (which I’ve never heard of a store doing before)! The store told me they do this in order to make returns easier for you. That way everything is on your registry and if the gift giver didn’t give you a receipt you can still return the item. Although I think you can without one anyway. They have an excellent and easy returns program!

MY FBIL & FSIL registered at Buy Buy Baby and there were a few items on their registry that listed “wanted: 0 received: 1” or however they word it. They were just things that people bought for them that they didn’t register for but were purchased with items from their registry.

We don’t have a BuyBuyBaby here, so I can’t help you there. But those Wubanub pacifiers are actually great (though the frog is kinda weird. Ours is a little dog that looks like Clifford. See link below.) They help keep the Soothies pacifier in baby’s mouth and tiny hands can hold them. After your 25,000th time picking up the pacifier and putting it back in, you might change your tune. haha. I agree, it does look kinda silly hanging out of my baby’s mouth, but it’s totally worth it for us!

yeah, if someone buys something and the cashier scans your registry info at the start of the transaction, it adds all the items purchased to the registry.  Like, we had a vitamin water and some tea candles show up on ours bc they were purchased in the same transaction lol.  Leave them on there so the returns are easier, but if something really off the wall shows up, log into it online and you can delete it

Hmm… that’s strange.  Note to self: Don’t buy yourself anything embarrassing on the same receipt as a registry purchase 😛

That’s odd, I’ve never heard of that.  The good thing is that you’ll probably have no trouble returning the items since they’re now showing up on your registry.  I’ve tried to get store credit for stuff and been unsuccessful because it wasn’t on there, so maybe that’s why they pop up on there.  It’s a cool safe guard if so.

I have read on here a few times now that that is happening on registeries! I think the last person was talking about it happening to them at Target. I don’t get why people take it upon themselves to buy things when they have a huge list of desired items in front of them, but that’s people for ya. At least you can take them back and just replace them with things you actually wanted 🙂

Eh, it happens with Crate & Barrel with wedding registries too.  While I think it’s not awesome that someone bought you a cheaper version of the item you wanted, you never know their reason for purchasing what they did.  Maybe they used that brand of item and loved it; maybe they grabbed the wrong one off the shelf; maybe they are cheapskates. 😉  The point is, I wouldn’t stress- just think of all the lovely things on your registry that you will be able to buy when you take back the things that you don’t want.
