Registering and Gifts
Watch out if you register at Bed Bath and Beyond
My fiance and I went to register at Bed Bath & Beyond a few weeks ago. We were going to register at Macy's for most of our gifts, and BB&B for random items. The consultant pressured us into registering for our fine China and dinnerware but I told her I would have to think about what pattern I wanted as I hadn't really thought about it too much at that point. (I knew I would get those items from Macys). We chose about 20 items that day at BB&B, and a few days later went to Macy's for everything else. Yesterday I was looking online at our BB&B registry and to my suprise, I noticed that the consultant at BB&B took it upon herself to register us for 200 additional items!!! She registered us for all of our fine china and casual dinnerware. Not only were the patterns ugly, but very over-priced. I was irrate!! She never called, emailed or asked if she could do that. Not only that, but I had already registered for that stuff at Macys. She did the works too. In addition to an 8 piece place setting for both, she registered us for several serving platters, ramkins(wtf) butter dish, salt and pepper shakers...everything under the sun! I called and spoke with a manager and had the whole registery removed. Just a warning...check your registry's online to make sure no additional items were added with out your knowledge!
