Yesterday was my bridal shower and it was fabulous! We got tons of awesome stuff and unfortunately, a few duplicates. Most people included the gift receipts but for some reason those who gave us duplicates, didn’t. I’d like to avoid the unnecessary awkwardness by just returning the stuff without the receipt but will they still take it back as long as the item was on the registry? I’d prefer not to have to settle for lowest sale price returned on a merchandise credit, if at all possible.

@UpstateCait: BBB is fabulous about returns with or without a receipt! We’ve returned a scale recently and we received it over a year ago. They gave us an in store credit for the amount that it was listed for on our registry page. BBB is truly the best store to work with for refunds, exchanges, etc. Plus, the 20% off coupons are “the Bomb”! lol (I don’t know anything about Macy’s policies).

@melisslp: Fantastic! We have a few smaller things to return from BB&B but unfortunatley the bigger items (like the 2 down comforters that we got) are from Macys. I’m hoping they have similar policies!

@UpstateCait: Just a heads-up as more gifts come in: one of DH’s coworkers used to work for BB&B, and she said you can actually cash in gift cards from there for cash if you receive an excessive amount and you’re registered with them. I haven’t tested this, but she was an asst. store manager there for a while, so she would probably know!
I’ve returned even non-registry items there without a receipt and gotten in-store credit with no hassle.
I returned a shirt to Macy’s one time without a receipt and they gave me in-store credit, also with no hassle. I can only assume they would be even more lenient with registry items.
Good luck! Glad to hear you got a good stash at your shower the other day!

@brideatbeach: That’s pretty awesome! We actually only got 1 gift card that we plan to use today but thats great to know if anything else comes in.

@UpstateCait: my experience with Macy’s wasn’t great. We couldn’t return anything that was bought off our registry unless we wanted it on a Macy’s gift card…kind of a pain. BB&B on the other hand, was awesome.
