We registered at Bed Bath and Beyond and it’s been fine so far. I mean, obviously they’re trying to sell stuff, so parts of that have been slightly annoying (like how they added more towels to our registry,) but what do you expect? They have a great return policy, and their *business* is like having people register for weddings, so I’m sure it will be great!

We registered at Pottery Barn and it has been amazing. They walked us through what to register for and the woman who helped us through every single step at the store also gave us her personal email address so that we could change or update or registry without coming back into the store. Needless to say, I had a 110% positive experience at Pottery Barn!

 

In contrast, we originally tried registering at the Bay and it was a customer service nightmare. All of the household items were spread out over 7 floors. We couldn’t find anyone to help us. We often couldn’t find prices on anything or even the models to scan that were on the shelf tags. However, I really wanted a mint green kitchenaid stand mixer so we registered for a few things there, but the majority is at Pottery Barn.

We have only had good experiences with our Crate & Barrel, Pottery Barn, and Macys registries.  We returned stuff at Macys with no receipt, no problem. Returned stuff to C&B and PB with receipts, no problem.  Loved the reward gift card from Macys. Have used the completion discount at all three stores with no problem (although at Macys if you are buying something not on your registry, you have to go to the registry desk, have them put it on, and then you get the discount. C&B and PB you can get the discount on anything, registered for or not).  We did the Macys registry in person, and the other two I set up online.  They were all easy to adjust online whenever we changed our mind about stuff.

I’m using http://www.myregistry.com and I love it so far! I was a little hesitant to register online because I know in stores they have people to help you out but the day after I signed up I got a call from a registry concierge who was super friendly and helpful! She walked me through the site and services they offer and I’ve been adding items ever since. It’s the best of both worlds because I can get the personal experience of registering in store… but I can do it from my couch, wearing sweats, with a glass of wine in hand 🙂 All in all, registering has been wayy more fun and easier than FI and I expected!

I’ve found both Williams Sonoma and Crate & Barrel pleasant to deal with so far–Williams Sonoma in particular.  The staff at WS are so helpful and friendly, the policies are easy to work with, and the products are great–so I’m not surprised to hear good things about Pottery Barn (PB and WS are part of the same company)!

Macy’s is fine, but they discontinue more things which is kind of annoying; their customer service has been pretty good and they have the best bonuses.

Crate & Barrel and Williams Sonoma have been fantastic.
