Putting the same items on multiple registries will probably lead to a lot of duplicates.

I have multiple dublicate items.  For instance, I really want the kitchen aid mixer so I put it on 3 registries.  You never know when the item will be on sale (right now there is a $100 difference between them!) or someone may want to use a store credit card (i.e. Bloomingdales).

This takes a lot of “managing” of the registries though- so if you do it you have to committ to checking them every day.

I think it’s fine to split things over registries! BBB offered the base set of our china at a way cheaper price than Macy’s, but Macy’s had the full tea set. We registered for what each place had in stock/the best deal on.

I don’t think that your sister’s right that people won’t buy online, though. At least in my age group and area, people prefer to buy things online and have them shipped right to the person. Especially heavy/delicate stuff like dishes! 🙂

I was in BB&B the other day, and the consultant mentioned that they have recently changed their shipping policy.  If you order an item off of a registry, that is not in store, it is shipped for FREE!!!!  So no more “well, it’s not here” unless it’s a last minute gift.

  This is a good question! I was wondering it myself. We were thinking about splitting up our place settings. BBB and Macy’s carries our setting. It’s currently all on BBB’s website, but I want to split it between the two stores. I love that Macy’s gives you 15% of what your guests spend on a gift card 4-6 weeks after the wedding. I agree with a previous poster…it would take a lot of registry managing!

I don’t think there is anything wrong with that.  What if one store isn’t convenient, but the other is??  Plus, you could take the one back that cost more so you can get more on your gift card. 🙂

Have you guys checked out myregistry.com? It keeps all of your registry information in one place, lets you add whatever you want from any website to your registry, and e-mails you everytime a gift is bought…

@nyscpa2be:  good point, and same w/ Macy’s!
