I know if you do Macy’s and have a credit card from them, you will get a percentage of everything bought off of your registry.

Macys probably give a lot better rewards than target. They give the bride a groom a lot of free stuff.

I presonally like Target better than Macy’s for shopping, but I agree that you should look at the rewards (if either provide) and see what will work better.

I will say, as a wedding guest who has purchased things off a Target registry, I would NEVER register with them. Incredibly disorganzied when I tried to buy a gift in the store, and then it was never taken off the registry, so the couple ended up with many multiples of many items.

Such a hassle to have to return it all. 

They were happy with the online purchases, but SO many of their items were only available in store.

I would go with Macy’s, even though they are overpriced. 

We went with Crate & Barrel and BB&B.

I have BBB and Macys. I put most of my bigger stuff on Macys because of the rewards (pans, crystal, small appliances, and towels because Macys are 100x better). Of course I still put a few cheaper items on Macys for balance. My BBB has a lot more cheap stuff but I also added a few items that are pricy but still cheaper than Macys (sheets, knives, silverware, $80-100 instead of Macys $120+). Hopefully that makes sense…

I registered at Macys’s (and Kohls) and probably the main reason I did so was because they give you a percent back on items purchased off your registry, plus they have some name brands other stores don’t carry. After recently wandering through Bed Bath and Beyond, I did notice they carried a lot of the same items from Macy’s, plus you can always use the coupons. I did have a couple of people complain about my Macy’s registry and finding specific items, plus my own problems of the items always being out of stock or being discontinued. It’s a tough call, I think Bed Bath Beyond is more convenient and cheaper, but looking back I did get most of my Macy’s registry fulfilled.
