One of the most exciting parts of pregnancy is getting to create your baby registry. Anthony and I loved picking out things that we wanted to use with our baby girl. It made her feel so much more real to us. During our pregnancy with Olivia we decided to register at Babies R Us. It was great to be able to go into the store to test everything out. However, we were limited to registering for only the products that store carried.
The next time around we plan on switching things up by using the Amazon Baby Registry. I am really excited to get to use Amazon’s registry next time. Amazon offers some great perks that differentiate it from other retailers. Here are just a few of the reasons that I love using Amazon to create a baby registry. Create an Amazon Baby Registry
Convenient Shopping – A great aspect of an Amazon baby registry is that it is available to everyone. Not every town has a Target, Buy Buy Baby, or Babies R Us. However, everyone can have access to your Amazon baby registry no matter where they live. This makes it convenient for all of your friends and family to shop. They can even have the gift shipped directly to you.
Earth’s Biggest Selection – You will have an amazing selection of baby products when you start an Amazon baby registry. Their baby store features over 270,000 products from popular brands including Aveno, Britax, Fischer Price, 4moms, Graco, Skip Hop, Chicco, and more.
Universal Baby Registry – The best part about an Amazon baby registry is that you aren’t just limited to shopping from Amazon’s website. You are able to add an item from ANY website onto your baby registry. So, if you find a toy at Buy Buy Baby that Amazon doesn’t offer you can still register for it. This completely eliminates the need for multiple registries. Now, you can easily keep all of your favorite items in one convenient place for guests to shop from.
90 Day Returns – Don’t worry if you receive a gift that you don’t like or need. Amazon offers free returns on most items up to 90 days after the date of delivery. You will receive your refund in the form of a gift card once you send the package back to Amazon. It is a quick hassle free process and the best part is the gift giver never has to find out!
Completion Discount – Amazon offers a great completion discount on remaining registry items that didn’t get purchased. 60 days before your event date (due date) Amazon will send you a 10% off code to purchase all of your remaining registry items. This code is good for 60 days after the event date. `
If you are a member of Amazon Prime you will receive a 15% completion discount (instead of the standard 10%) courtesy of Amazon Family. There are so many other great reasons to sign up for Amazon Family other than the great registry benefits. You will also receive free two day shipping, a 20% discount on diaper subscriptions, exclusive coupons, and more. Join Amazon Family 30-Day Free Trial
