    I'm sure a lot of you ladies knew this but by registering at Bed Bath and Beyond, they have worked out deals with some of their vendors to give you free gifts. That is, just register for a certain dollar amount of certain brands to receive gifts. For instance -- I registered for $500 or more of Calphalon products, and as a result, we will be getting a santoku cutlery gift a.k.a. knife for sending in a rebate form with a copy of the registry with the Calphalon products listed on it. There are always rules and restrictions, like this one is not valid on Kitchen Essentials or Cooking with Calphalon products.

    I figure even if I don't get the dream cookware I've always wanted, I'll get a free knife out of it lol.

    Cuisinart also has some kind of promo going on for a free recipe cd, and something also about a free cookbook and there is another brand doing another promo but I didn't really get info on either of those since I didn't qualify. Maybe if I asked really nicely they would tell me lol...

    Anyway, hope these promotions are in your area as well ladies, seems nice to get something for free with all the money we're putting into our weddings!

    They also do a referral program where if you refer people that set up registries you get a $25 off $50 purchase or something like that, so keep it in mind if you have friends that are also getting married and make sure they refer you or vice versa!

      Do you only have to register for the items, or they have to be purchased off your registry? I thought it was the guests purchase $500 worth of calphalon, and then they throw in the free gifts?

          It doesn't say anywhere on the paperwork that $500 has to be purchased, it says registered for. Howeverrrrr it does say "One registry gift set per registrant or couple and one completeion gift set per registrant or couple" which makes me think that there may be another cheaper gift, and that the knife would be given after the purchase. The people at BBB told me it was a knife just for registering and it says "Receive your own Santoku cutlery gift by registering for $500 or more of qualifying Calphalon products"... key word register not purchasing. would be funny if they sent you something like a knife cover to register and the knife after purchases lmao..

            Hi ladies!

            The knife set is just for registering, but you have to send in some paperwork with a copy of your registery to prove that you did have that amount. There is a $50 gift card for purchasing $300 worth of Caphalon, so the person buying it, gets the gift card. My coworkers bought me the Caphalon and were nice enough to give me the $50 gift card as well! :) Hope this info helps!
