I don’t really think it is the store’s fault that you scanned sale items. I look at registries as a source of information re what items the couple wants, not what prices are being charged. I always do my own research to get the best price no matter where that is.

Macy’s frustrates me too. The “sale” prices at Macy’s are equivalent to the regular prices at BBB. Apparently Macy’s has a lot of awesome coupons though, so my mom has assured me that people who know how to shop right at Macy’s will get good deals on things.

@RedWine13:  You know.. I would just look at what you have on your registry, do my research and find it for the best price (target? amazon? whatever) and then put on your registry that I bought it!

I didn’t care for Macy’s when I registered either. They looked us up & had something to say about some things we had on our BB&B registry…tried to get us to register for things we didn’t want at all… The list goes on.

I used Macy’s registry and they were great. The products are good quality, returns are easy, and the customer service is great. Anyone who shops at Macy’s (or any department store, really) knows that they constantly have sales, promotions, and coupons. Doesn’t BB&B have sales too? I really fail to see how this is a specific problem with Macy’s.

We are registering at both BB&B and Macy’s. While Macy’s prices are certainly higher, we are doing this under the impression that people who have more money/want to spend more will go to Macy’s and the rest will go to BB&B. I know my family members with more money will want to go to Macy’s just for the stigma of it being a “nicer” store.

Thanks for the heads up! I noticed this to some extent when I went in to the store to view our china pattern again. You do have to keep in mind that there are often sales at Macy’s. Perhaps you caught some of your items at the wrong time. ? Macy’s was really the only big department store option for us as we have guest coming from all over the US and I wanted to choose some place accessible to everyone. I hate BB&B for some reason, but after checking our china pattern….

Weird! We are registered there and just today we got 3 pieces of luggage (total $1,000) for less than $500 (likely around 60% off), using coupons from the sales associate. We made out like bandits. 

I have vigilantly compared pricing from BBB & Macy’s and most times it’s a cent difference ($39.99 vs. $40) & while BBB does have coupons, so does Macy’s. We’ve been extremely pleased so far. So sorry you had a different experience. 🙁 Glad BBB works out for you!
