Hey bees! I wanted to pass along something I found on the Williams-Sonoma registry site!
If you log into your registry, then go to the “Manage Registry” page, there’s a box on the lower right that mentions Special Vendor Offers. You need (yes, NEED) to click it!
Several great brands will give you freebies just for registering for their items! You simply register, print out your registry, highlight the qualifying items, then mail it with the little coupon, and voila! Free things for you.
Here’s some of what you can get:
- Mini casserole dish (red) from Le Crueset when you register for 6 Le Crueset pieces
- Measuring cup set from All Clad when you register for $500 of All Clad
- Cookbook when you register for the KitchenAid 610 Pro mixer
- Kitchen shears when you register for $450 of Wusthof knives
- Frying pan when you register for $800 of Calphalon cookware
- Paring knife when you register for $450 of Global knives
- Paring knife when you register for $450 of Shun knives
And it gets better. When guests buy so much of each of those brands, you get an additional gift from them, also listed on that site.
Just wanted to share! I sent in my lists today, so I’ll be looking forward to some great goodies soon

WHOA. I need to start pressuring Boyfriend or Best Friend… >.> I can’t wait to register at cooking-type stores. There’s a Sur La Table near where he grew up, and I always have to visit when we’re in that mall.

I looooove Sur la Table. But we don’t have one in Oklahoma. It’s very sad. We did register at one in Plano, TX and finished it up online though. Can’t wait to move to Miami in July and have one nearby!
You can go online and register just to get the deals from Williams-Sonoma. Then when he’s ready, you guys can go out and add to it.

Oh wow that’s awesome. I wasn’t planning on registering there but I just might have to now. By the way, Sur La Table is my guilty pleasure store. Love it!

Actually, WS has pretty much the same completer/registering rewards at Bed Bath & Beyond. We’re registered at both and after looking them over realized they were about the same. Macy’s also has one, but offhand I couldn’t really tell you what is on it.

Oh my goodness, I love you! I really wanted that All Clad measuring cup set, but just couldn’t justify the price. Kind of glad I didn’t!

@Toffee – BBB has registry bonuses like that too? We registered there a while back and were going to delete it. I’ll have to search around their site.

Good call Toffee!
Here’s the link to the Bed, Bath & Beyond incentive list:
They have the same ones and more!
Is this a new registry trend since so many places do registries now?

Wow! Those are some great incentives. I wish C&B did that!

OH. MY. GAWD.
I’m gonna be up all night!

BBB has been doing it for awhile I think and same with WS. We registered first at BBB and they were super excited (overall awesome experience) to give us our registry completer pamphlet thingies. I still have to print off/highlight all of the stuff and send it in, but once I do I think we’ll be getting the Alton Brown knife and the stuff from Calphalon (don’t recall it ATM). And then it’s just a matter of double-checking everything after the honeymoon to see what got bought for us. I know that we personally added a few things that we would love to have, but couldn’t justify the expense of even having somebody else buy them for us aka the shun knife block set. Even if we don’t get them we’ll still get a little gift and don’t forget that buying stuff later with the 10% discount still counts toward the totals for the completer packages.

The Macy’s one has it too, along with printable forms to mail in.
I found the incentives on the BBB site, but I can’t find the forms. Does anyone know where I can get them? We just did the BBB registry on Sunday – not sure if they were supposed to give that to us or if they mail it?

For the BBB you have to pick up the forms from the bridal coordinator in store. I have a calphalon and just realized that I need a shun one and one or two others. Basically you just pick up a pamphlet for each one to fill out and send in. According to the consultant I talked to you also have to print out a copy of your registry.

Lame. I guess our consultant was no good. She didn’t tell us anything about their incentives or completion program.
