half of registry items only available online ... would you be annoyed?
Posted 25 February 2009 - 04:00 AM
the problem is, now it's like almost half the stuff on our registry is only available ONLINE, not in stores. as a shopper, would you find that totally annoying? i'm thinking some people might welcome the chance to shop online, but most people will go to a target store and be pissed that there's not much available in-store.
are we like the most annoying couple ever?

Another consideration is shipping costs - some people might want to save on shipping by buying in-store. I would personally see paying the shipping as a convenience, since I could then ask Target to just ship direct to you rather than deal with it myself. BUT, paying extra for shipping might turn a few people off, especially these days when everyone is trying to save money.
At the end of the day, though, I wouldn't worry about it too much, because you have half of your list available in-store. If you find that everything is being bought in-store, though, you might want to tweak the list to adjust it accordingly.

but could I see my aunts or grandma or older family do it? nope.
I would go with lolkitteh and tell guests about the online situation and let them know the convenience of shipping it right to you- that is definetly a plus. Perhaps I would be on the lookout for target to have an online shipping coupon and attach a code with the registry, and sometimes stores even run a promotion that you get shipping free for registry items, so ask about that.
on the other side- I have not done my registry yet (still too early) but are you SO excited for new stuff?!?!

Just ask them. If they say I would love to get that but can't get online say you'll do it for them lol My aunt does that all the time - i get mostly mine and FI's own stuff and she gives me the cash lol

In the end... for my showers (I had 2.. visiting family and then local family and friends) I got ALOT more of BBB compared to Target stuff. I will say I got many many GC's to Target but no actual online items. Don't know if it's because alot of my items were online or not.. but one comment was that I had lots of smaller stuff in store and people wanted to get "real" gifts" -(whatever that means).
Go with what the girls said ... check to see where your age range is for guests and people you know what will want to be at your showers. I think this would def help.
