    @babycakes24:  I originally made a Macy’s registry (along with BBB, target, and kohls) but as I was trying to add things to Macy’s, I realized the absolute lunacy of trying to suggest to my guests that I would like a black Waterford crystal centerpiece bowl that costs $1000. I found things at the other 3 places that I liked better and were much more budget friendly. I ended up taking everything off of the macy’s registry and replacing the things with stuff from the other three places.

    Just a heads up – I went into my Macy’s registry today and over half the items are showing as soon to be discontinued. We’re talking Calphalon, Hotel Collection, Martha Stewart …. all sorts of big name items. So when I try to replace the items I’m getting error messages.

    I find it hard to believe that so many things all of a sudden are being discontinued so I started a chat with a registry services rep. She told me they’re having issues with the website and that’s why so many things are showing discontinued and unable to add new items.

    I don’t know if this applies to you, but wanted to share!

    There has to be some kind of a glitch — there’s no way they’d discontinue their signature towels, right?

    I registered at Macy’s and BBB for some of the same items to allow for guests to choose where to purchase them. I just managed my registry carefully so that the day eight place settings of china were purchased through Macy’s, I quickly removed eight place settings from my BBB registry.  Likewise, when I saw that two more place settings had been purchased at BBB, I removed them from the Macy’s registry, etc.  This turned out really well for me, except that I somehow accidentally deleted one too many items from one of the registries, since both showed that all of my place settings had been purchased, but I only ended up receiving 15 of my 16 place settings. I didn’t mind, however, since it’s unlikely that I will need to use all 16 at the same time — at least for now.

    @babycakes24: I noticed on my Macy’s registry that some of the things that said “out of stock” weren’t actually out of stock anymore, they just didn’t update it to show that it was back in stock on my registry, if that makes sense. I had to delete the item from my registry and then add it back. So maybe try checking to see if the items are actually out of stock?

    Good to hear its a glitch.  I’ve run into a problem that I can’t put certain items on my registry at all.  What is the sense in that??!

    Hey ladies, I called Macy’s today and they told me it’s a problem with the website and should be fixed in the morning. Just FYI. Take it with a grain of salt and keep an eye on it obviously, but their reps say it is the website and it is not actually discontinuations.

    @babycakes24:  Seriously even though it’s a glitch it’s a very irritating one! My shower is one week away also and I just hope nobody is trying to look at that registry right now =/

    Their website does get some glitches but this is that time of year they are getting rid of older items & bringing in new ones. They’re getting ready for a lot of sales & friends & family. Since you also have the bbb registry I would add some items to that.

    OMG! I bought myself the bedding I wanted because I thought it was going to be gone!! It was 50% off (still expensive though) so maybe it really is going to be discontinued. But I did notice that like half of my stuff was out of stock or unavailable, I was wondering if it was a glitch. Ugh!!
