You can do this with any registry- it’s one of their perks.

Both my Macy’s and BBB registry let guests call it in that they’d purchased elsewhere.

Wow. I actually never thought of that… 🙂

But they do keep track of it and won’t allow returns from another store…

I do this all the time if something is on clearance or sale or is just a better price at another store.  I don’t even bother lying.  I don’t specify that I bought it at another store, I just mention that it was bought and needs to be marked on the registry.

oh, hello there eBay, you are so full of good deals!

I have had a lot of success finding the same things on the internet.  Sometimes it’s even buying the item directly from the manufacturer’s website and it works out as less than the store price after shipping.

As you pointed out, existing gift cards are also a good way to go – you can even buy gift cards for less than face value on some websites!

Yay for saving money!
