Oh, good point. 

Just an idea. Could you save it and give it to one of your friends as a gift?  Not that I’m someone who like regifting stuff but if it’s new and reusuable and not crappy gift like sterotypical regifts, then I would give it to someone else.

Or, maybe it is just easier to ask the person who bought you the gift the trouble you had and if it wasn’t a problem to see if they could return it or exchange it for something.

I know I wouldn’t normally do this for a birthday gift but since this is something that is related to your registry, it might not hurt to ask.  This isn’t your fault or the friend who purchased the gift either.  So maybe you guys can work together to get it returned. I would just be honest to the friend.

Oh, did you file a complaint with Amazon telling them you are not happy about their gift registries.  I know I would. 

Anyway, thanks for the heads up. I know amazon sounds like a great place to set up a registry but after this i will be hestiant in having registries there.

I just had a very similar problem, but fortunately they were able to help me. The item I received was broken, and all I wanted to do was send it back and get it replaced. But it was through a third-party like yours. Initially when I called they repeatedly told me they couldn’t do anything, but I was persistant and insisted that this was not fair. Finally they agreed to give me a return shipping label and a merchandise credit. Now I still have to re-order the item, but at least I got a credit to use. Still very annoying though.
