I decided to register at Target for my wedding because I thought they had a good selection of products, and they were conveniently located for many of my guests.
Of course I received multiples even though I had only registered for one of any given item. Most people didn't include gift receipts either. You would think, maybe, that a regular return policy wouldn't apply to a wedding registry because it's common knowledge that you're likely to receive multiples and/or gifts without a gift receipt.
Even though my registering at Target brought them *plenty* of business, I'm still stuck with gifts I don't need multiples of. Why? You're only allowed 2 no-receipt returns per 12 month period, and on top of that, if the value of the item is over $20, then you cannot return the item (or I suppose you could, but forfeit the difference).
The manager had the gall to tell me to either bring my husband to the store to return the items that were under $20 in value, or ask a friend to return it for me. They also suggested I contact the gift giver and request the gift receipt. No! I am a stressed pre- and now post-bride, and I don't have time.
Instead, I called my friends that are getting married in the near future, told them the story, and they promptly canceled their Target wedding registries.
