I went to start a registry at Macy’s this past weekend & in addition to some other cool things that I knew nothing about (like gifts from vendors if you register for their items!), I found out about a great additional bonus for using a Macy’s registry & I wanted to make sure that other folks got as much benefit as possible!
If you have a Macy’s card, you get a giftcard worth 5% of whatever guests spend in purchasing items through your registry. In ADDITION, you get 10% back on ALL PURCHASES that you make using your Macy’s card. So, whether you are buying plates, shoes, sexy undies, or lounge sweats, you get 10% of your charges back via giftcard from the time that you register until the date of your wedding!! I thought that was very cool, so if you are planning on doing a Macy’s registry (and actually shop at Macy’s), sign up sooner rather than later so you can get credit back for all your purchases–even if you know guests won’t actually be looking at it for quite some time.
Happy shopping ladies!!

yup! It was awesome. We got like $40ish back or something? Wasn’t too long after the wedding either. I can’t remember. We only had one thing purchased for us from there too! lol The other rewards came from buying myself stuff :p most of which was wedding related though lol

See, I wish you could get something like this without having to open up a line of credit. That’s the last thing I want to do before I get married!

I wish I hadn’t just opened up my Kohl’s charge!!

My sister used Macy’s and she ended up buying my mom’s and my gifts with her Macy’s card with the extra 10%, plus the items were marked down and there was a sale weekend or something. (We paid her back!) : )
Nothing like getting crystal for half off!

WOW! Did not know that! How AMAZING.
Definitely will be taking the FH there this weekend. I will bribe him by telling him he can play with the registry gun!!
Thanks for the advice!
