I’m sorry to tell you- I cancelled my W-S registry Monday! They are awful! See this thread:

The worst registry- Williams Sonoma

 

Bed, Bath and Beyond have been great-go with them.

Ugh.  Don’t tell me this!  I didn’t want to register at Target, I wanted BB&B and a Honeyfund, but Future Mother-In-Law convinced me to go BB&B and Target.  I have noticed that a few things that I really do want are usually out of stock online – which annoyed me so much that I took them off and put similar items on BB&B.  I hope I don’t get a ton of stuff that are doubles from them… I’d be so annoyed if I had to deal with what you’ve had to deal with.  On a good note… BB&B is fantastic!  2 gifts we’ve gotten so far (via mail) have been a bit off.  One was a platter that wasn’t perfect and one a showerhead, that my FH must have lost a rubber washer for, because it leaked!  I took both back for exchanges and it was completely painless!

Oh wow, yeah, I’d tell Target to suck it too!  HAHA  We were going to register, but when we had a hard time even finding some things at BB&B we decided to just register at one place.  Granted we are having a small wedding and only have about 70 people expected to attend so our small list of 50 items I think will do nicely. 🙂  I love BB&B so far and you can use their 20% coupons too if you want for every single item!

Crate and Barrel is good too if you like their stuff. I’m doing B, B & B, Crate and Barrel, Michael C Fina for my fine china.

I hope I don’t have a nightmare Target registry… I registered there because of the price-point and it was available to many of our guests who live in smaller towns; so it was pretty much either Target or Walmart. (I also registered at Dillards. I would have prefered Macy’s or BBB, but my mom wanted me to register at Dillards and I didn’t think it worth fighting about.)

Bed Bath and beyond have been super! I’ve registered at Target as well, but no one has bought us anything off of it.  We have also registered at JCPenny which they have also been great to us.  Definatley go with B B &B they are awesome!!

We had the best experience at Bed, Bath & Beyond, which is also where most of our gifts came from. We also registered at Crate & Barrel and Macy’s.

Wow.. I never had a problem with Williams Sonoma- I had HUGE issues with crate and barrel. We kept getting another couples wedding items (i.e. Aunt Sady would purchase a gift for these people and CB would ship it to us)- we called them multiple times and they just didn’t care. They said if wanted we could drive 30 miles to the nearest store to return it (?!)- never offered a shipping label or anything to get the product to the correct people.They also added these huge blue vases to our registry list.. my brother in law ended up buying the whole freaking set. I now have give 2-5 gallon bright blue floor vases (and they don’t match anything in our condo/we don’t have room). I don’t have the heart to tell him what happened and never took them back.

I was tempted to cancel my wedding registry at target after trying to return a $15 non-functioning item that the manufacturer told me to return. They only gave me half the money back. But I was told that the whole target store is only allowed to return $70, not $70 per person. However, the not-very-helpful girl did tell me that if I’m returning items off my registry, they extend the courtesy to registrants to receive all the money back…even if it is a gift card.

They got a really nasty email from me, stating that the only reason I’m not cancelling it is because not everyone has a BBB near them.

If you have a Macy’s Credit Card 10% of the cost of everything that gets purchased from your registry gets given back to you as a gift card. Plus, anything on your registry you buy yourself you get 20% up to 6 monthes after your wedding. I had to return some glasses that arrived with one tiny chip and they’re were super cool about it. Here’s that program http://www1.macys.com/registry/wedding/m/benefits-of-registry

Both Macy’s and BB&B  have other incentive like free stuff just for registering things like kitchen aid and etc.  Here’s BB&B’s incentive program http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/RegIncentive.asp? You can also go there in person and have a consultant help you with what to put on your list.

Wierd, I can’t believe Target said that to you. I got a LOT of duplicate things & they took everything back & gave me a $200+ gift card. None of them had gift reciepts either (well, maybe a few).

Did you tell Target that you had registered for the books? Not sure if they were on your registry?

I wouldn’t delete your Target registry cause if people already bought you stuff, if it was on your registry, you don’t need a receipt to get in-store credit.

Uskadelig-don’t know if your noticed this on my post but be careful using gift cards there.  I had this problem with Pottery Barn this past Christmas. Fi’s family had given us gift cards for a piece of furniture. They gave us roughly $1000 and the total ended up being $1150. When I ordered i put the difference on my debit card. They charges the entire $1150 to my debit card and it took 10 days and 8 hours on the phone talking to 10 different people to get the money refunded. They said that was their “policy.”

Obviously I have really bad luck with that company!
