All my friends told me this was a great place to register, and they were right. You make an appointment to register, and they assign someone to personally help you select items and fill out the registry. They printed up little cards with our names and registry numbers to include in shower invitations. When guests purchase things off our registry, they offer to wrap the gift for free. After the wedding, they invited us to a "registry wrap up" party where we received 20% off the rest of our registry items.
Bed Bath and Beyond is a great store to register. We had a great time with our registry because of the variety of items at the store. Additionally, the store is very easy in regards to returns. The only problem we had with Bed Bath and Beyond was that if you returned something you HAD to request to take the item off your list... we returned two items we received as bridal shower gifts and then received them again as wedding gifts. I did not realize that we had to request to take these off our registry.
Several items were listed as in store, but were not in the correct colors. We were told we could not register until six months before the wedding (we knew we wouldn't have time and went at nine months)...turns out, you can, but the representative the day we first went turned us away. Terrible business practice.
Fantastic! They have so many rewards programs and offers that it seems like the free money never stops. I recieved $25 for referring a friend, a $100 gift card for registering for a set amount of a certain brand, plus you get 25% off of everything on your registry after the wedding. I definately recommend BB&B compared to Macys, which was a total waste of our time. No rewards programs to speak of, plus they are over priced. Many of the items they offer can be found at BB&B.
LOVE BBB. They are incredibly customer friendly. You can return ANYTHING with or without the gift receipt. You can update your registry online... They have high quality products, like fine china, also Waterford, and they have holiday items, just basically EVERYTHING you can think of. If you've never been to a BBB, go to their website and take a look around. Competitively priced, and good quality.
I highly recommend this store for your gift registry. They have all the same stuff that Macy's did and guests can use those great 20% off coupons. In addition for a bunch of duplicate items we returned, they gave us the option to get cash back, which we ended up saving and used on our 1 year anniversary trip. Their customer service has been excellent in my experience as well. I've had issues at Linens n Things but neverat BBB. They are awesome!
Fairly easy to set up. The store I went to wanted me to register for everything in one day which seemed ridiculous to me. I ended up coming back and adding/deleting some stuff. The registry people were very helpful. Their return policy is pretty good except I'd always heard you could bring stuff back for cash, which I know sounds tacky but I registered for 12 place settings and got 15, so it would have been nice to get the cash back since we were done with all our purchases. If you don't have a gift receipt or packing slip, you will just get a store credit on a receipt slip, no card. Although today I went to return something and they said they would give cash IF the people have the receipt and yell/scream. :)
