So my FI and I are going to register today and we’re totally torn. We LOVE some of the things Target has to offer but we’re afraid that the return policy won’t allow us much flexibility. We were considering Crate & Barrel but there is only one in our whole state and wouldn’t be very convenient for our guests. I know we’ll be going to Bed, Bath and Beyond but can’t decide between Target and C&B. Any suggestions? Can anyone explain to me the issues with the Target return policy and whether it’s really that big of an issue?
Thanks in advance!!! 🙂

we had no problem.. we didn’t have the gift receipt so they just gave us in store credit(which was fine with us)… we just used it towards something else we had wanted..

If you had a more convenient C&B, I’d vote for them because their customer service has been VASTLY better than at Target (we have registries at both). We returned something to Target recently, and it eventually went fine, but it was kind of a pain in the a$$. I called the Target Help people to ask a question, and I had a horrible experience with the agent… but when we went into the store, it was fine. We wanted store credit anyway, so there was no problem.
Normally, I’d say C&B despite the lack of accessibility because people can purchase online, but I’m surprised at how many people went into the store to get us gifts and hand them to us. So far, our guests have loved our C&B registry because it’s easiest for them… so I’d go with Target since it’s easier for your guests. Thankfully, everything is tracked through your registry either way, so you shouldn’t have customer service troubles.

I think if it were in-store credit we would be okay. I had heard some people received gifts and didn’t have a gift receipt and couldn’t exchange the item for in-store credit. Yet I don’t know what they could do without a receipt now that I think about it. *sigh. This is just a big ole pain. 🙂
