Here’s something you might not know about baby registries: Many offer discounts for items that you end up buying off of your own registry. Yes, really! They’re called completion discounts, and they’re something every parent should take advantage of.
There are some limitations – namely the fact that most completion discounts can only be used close to your due date. Still, it’s a pretty huge perk, especially if you use your discounts on big ticket items like cribs and strollers that you might be less likely to receive as gifts.
Because we want you to get the most out of your registries, we’re sharing all of the pro tips that will help you save the most money possible via completion discounts.
Below are the retailers that offer completion discounts as part of their baby registries, as well as instructions on how to use each completion discount. Keep in mind that lots of parents recommend creating multiple registries for maximum completion discount savings (and then BabyCenter’s Registry Builder can help you keep all of your registries organized in one place).
Don’t forget to link your registries to Registry Builder for easy management and sharing. And if you haven’t yet claimed your free welcome boxes for your registries, we can help you learn exactly how to do that, too!
