Hi ladies! I am so confused right now! I just logged in to my registry and saw items that were purchased that I never put on my registry? For example, I had 8 round place settings, and it says one square place setting was purchased but zero requested. And it also has a pack of Kcups when I know for a fact I didn’t put it on there :). Can guests just go into the store and buy something else and say it’s for my wedding? It’s really not a big deal but I am not in the mood for dealing with half round and half square plates, and Kcups when I don’t own a Keurig haha!

@JustG: Maybe the store accidentally rang stuff up on your registry by accident or a guest bought some items for themselves too and didn’t ask for it to rung up separately. I know some stores will add whatever is purchased to the registry even if you didn’t register for it.

@JustG: sometimes if they buy something for themselves while buying something off of the registry, it’ll scan it in as a gift. But they can add things to your registry. People did that with mine.

@JustG: This happened to us at Bed Bath and Beyond! Someone added something and bought it, but we never received it, and I know I never put it on our registry. Strange thing is, I know it was not a glitch as it was something involving cats and we’re well-known among friends and family as cat lovers. It was really odd!

@JustG: Yes at BB&B if the guest is purchasing items for themselves at the same time then those items are added to your registry as well…very strange I know.
I do know that at Target random items made it onto our registry as well. I have heard stories of people ending up with baby items on their wedding registries, which of course starts a rumor like crazy. For some reason their scanners don’t always fully clear before and after use.

@Treejewel19: Yep, this exactly!
It’s so weird. I went to get a gift off a friend’s bridal shower registry, and someone had purchased mini Snickers bites… yep, it added candy to her registry.

We had that happen at BB&B, but it actually will help you if some of those things are for you. It keeps track of the purchase price, so if you get one of those gifts that weren’t on your registry you’ll be able to return/exchange it for the full price they paid for it instead of whatever the price is now (at least that’s what the sales girl that exchanged some things for me said was the reason they do it).

It depends on the store, but if the cashier doesn’t “end” the registry purchase, it can put all of the items purchased as a registry purchase. (Most store registers have a registry function – they scan in the registry, scan the item(s) on the registry, then end the registry function and do the rest of the transaction normally.) I’m guessing the Kcups were for personal use – or else like the PP said, you’re getting a Keurig and you just don’t know it yet. 🙂

@JustG: Usually anything that is purchased as part of a registry transaction will then be listed. So unless the cashier clicks a button (its easy to buy registry and non-registry in the same transaction in most systems though), everything shows up as a registry gift.
Sounds like it was a personal purchase rung up wrong (the k cups) and a case of someone not reading the registry and a cashier not catching it with the square place setting. But its usually pretty helpful–so, if someone DID buy you a Keurig and then decided to put k-cups with it (or bought you a cupcake mix to go with the bowls and cupcake pan you registered for) it will show up on your registry as requested: 0 purchased: 1 so that you know you recieved it (and so do other guests), and its on the gift receipt (which, um, might be the most important part!)

Yes, a couple things got added to my BBB registry, but it ended up being really helpful, because then I could return them without a receipt–hooray!
But it is weird…
