FI and I have been thinking about setting up our registry now that we are at the 6 month mark (omg. yay!) and were debating over which to select.
I’ve read somewhere (maybe here?) that many places will give you a discount to purchase remaining items on your list that don’t get purchased. Is that true? If so – which stores?
We were thinking…
Bed Bath and Beyond
Pampered Chef (maybe)
Did you use any of these and if so, did you get a coupon to buy the rest of the things on your list at a discounted price? Was the coupon only for items on the list or for anything in the store? We’d like to know so we know what to put on our registry (i.e. we’d really like a new TV since ours is a prehistoric tube TV… but we also don’t expect anyone to spend that kind of money on one for us. a discount on it after the wedding would be nice though!)

I was just wondering the same thing! We registered at Bed Bath and Beyond and Crate and Barrel… I may add more to the registry closer to the wedding if we get a good discount- hello xmas presents for my fam 🙂

We did Bed, Bath, and Beyond and Macy’s.
They both had times when registry items were between 10-25% off. Macy’s had a nice program where you got $5 for everyone $200 anyone spent.

We did Macy’s, Bed Bath and Beyond, and Target.
Macy’s gives you a coupon for 10% off all registry items up to 90 days after your wedding-you can use this coupon as many times as you want.
Bed Bath and Beyond: gives you a coupon for 10% off of one purchase of the remaining items off your registry. They also do a purchase event, where if you go during the event you get 20% off all items you buy-even those not on your registry (they will add them for you then) & they raffle off really nice prizes.
Target: gives you 10% off all the items on your registry for 1 purchase.
Hope that helps 🙂
