Why You Should Register at Macy's

For our wedding we registered at Target, Crate and Barrel and Macy's. The three stores were no doubt the perfect mix of options for our guests and our gifts. And while I do love ALL of the stores, right now Macy’s is sitting very pretty in my eyes – pretty to the point that I need to write a blog about it.

Since my wedding Macy’s has conveniently sent me email notices that include registry completion discounts, and since then I’ve learned that if you pair these discounts with a good sale, you can walk out with one heck of deal. Well, last Thursday was one of those days where I racked up on Macy’s savings. After strategically pairing a 20% completion discount with Macy’s semi-annual home sale, this is what I walked away with (or had shipped to me for FREE if it wasn’t in stock):

10 PIECE CORNINGWARE SET
Original Price: $70.00
Sale Price: $49.99
Special Sale Price: $34.99
Final Price: $27.99

MARTHA STEWART 12 QT. MULTI-POT
Original Price: $124.99
Closeout Price: $49.99
Final Price: $39.99

J.A. HENCKELS 6" MEAT CLEAVER
Original Price: $59.00
Sale Price: $38.99
Final Price: $31.99

 FIESTA 1 QUART SERVING BOWL
Original Price: $26.00
Sale Price: $17.99
Final Price: $8.15

FIESTA DINNER PLATE
Original Price: $17.00
Sale Price: $10.99
Final Price: $8.79

That’s a whopping $180 in savings for items totaling only $117! A proud savings moment for sure.

In addition to the awesome prices on all of the items above, payment for the items was pretty awesome too. When you register at Macy’s, the store will link your Macy’s rewards card to your registry and will mail you a gift card after your wedding worth a percentage of your total registry sales. We paired that rewards card with our Kitchenaid mixer’s $30 Macy’s rebate card and were able to cover the entire tab above plus some.

So, now you see why today I am a Macy’s registry advocate. They have versatile, good quality items and brands. They have a pretty good registry management service as well as good customer service. They send you great completion discounts after you’re married. They always have sales and better-than-competitor prices. AND they have a nifty registry rewards card program that puts Macy’s cash directly in your pocket. Unless your guests don’t shop at Macy’s, it seems like a win-win all around.

In closing I have one last purchase to share, OXO Pop Containers. While not quite a mega savings purchase, this splurge was a MUST.

OXO POP CONTAINERS

They stack. They pop. They lock. And they sure are NIFTY!
