So I checked my BBB registry today and all of a sudden there’s a bunch of purchased items on there that we didn’t register for, and they’re totally random things like a cold beverage travel cup or kurig coffee disks (we registered for and received a Tossimo), so what’s going on?? Fiance seems to think that the items that people purchased for themselves while they were making purchases for us are showing up on our registry. Has this happened to anyone else?

I think someone posted about this last week — if someone buys somthing off your registry, but also buys some things for themselves, those other items end up on your registry. Crazy!

I have heard of this happening before, and it is for exactly the reason you said – people buying other things while making your gift purchases at the same time, I believe.

There was a post I read the other day that had this topic in it, and there were brides that commented that it is common that items people purchase for themselves in the same transaction will sometimes end up as purchased on your registry. With the items you mentioned I would guess that is what it is.

Thanks ladies! Glad I got to the bottom of that. Now I won’t have to pretend to be thrilled to receive coffee disks that don’t work in my coffee maker…now if only I could ensure I won’t end up with 3 toasters….

Ha. That’s pretty funny. You’d think people would think about maybe doing a separate transaction!?

Yep, I think it’s a good excuse to check my registry often, so I can delete random stuff 🙂
I don’t know why their system can’t seem to handle gift purchases along with non-gift purchases.
