We registered at three stores: Crate and Barrel, Bloomingdales, and Bed, Bath, and Beyond. Below is our experience at Bed, Bath, and Beyond. Here is a link to our experience at Crate and Barrel and at Bloomingdale’s.
Did I mention that I am not really into home stuff? I’m not. By the time it was to register at our third store, I was jaded. There were no registering events so we went to the Lincoln Park store on a Sunday afternoon. The sales staff really didn’t seem that interested in helping us. They gave us a gun and a “checklist” of items we might need.
After about 10 minutes in the Kitchen Department, I begged for mercy. My dear husband turned in the gun and registered online. (It was all for him anyway. I never cook.) Thankfully, BBB has a wonderful online registry program.
I would suggest that everyone registers at BBB. Why? They have the most comprehensive selection of merchandise. While not everyone may have a BBB near them, all of the items could be purchased online. Additionally, BBB honors their 20% coupons on everything including china.
