Welcoming a new baby into the world is something to celebrate, even big retailers think so. Set your baby up for success and get a few extras for yourself when you register with these stores and websites.
Retailers Offering Baby Registry Free Gifts
Big name retailers have huge customer bases and relationships with many prominent brands, so they can often offer the best perks. Examples of major stores and online retailers with generous freebie offers and perks for those who set up baby registries include:
If you're after great savings and quick setup, Kohl's has you covered. Their Smart Start option automatically adds the most popular registry items to your list, which you can (of course!) customize. Additionally, you'll get free announcement cards that come with a 20 percent discount for purchases over $100. You will also get 15 percent off any items left on your registry for three months.
Moms who can't find everything in one store get ultimate flexibility with an Amazon registry. Their universal registry option allows you to add items from any website. Other perks include free shipping on orders over $25 and a 10 percent discount on items left on your registry after your shower. Amazon Prime members who set up a registry get a free welcome box with baby samples, a parenting e-book, coupons for diapers and food, and 15 percent off Amazon Prints.
First-time moms love Target's free welcome kit that includes tons of free samples for various baby products and coupons worth up to $100. You'll find trendy items and exclusive collections at affordable prices at Target, but your baby registry isn't limited to the store's inventory. That's because Target also has a universal registry option, so you can add items from other retailers. They offer a price match guarantee, a free gift tracking feature, group gifting options, and 15 percent off items left on your registry after your shower.
Buy Buy Baby
Buy Buy Baby is perfect for super social mamas with tools like the "Ask a Friend" or "Copy a Friend's Registry" options where you can enlist the help of your mom tribe. They also provide free announcement cards when you open a baby registry. Head to one of their stores to register and you'll receive a "goody bag" filled with free samples and coupons.
Moms and gift purchasers who are all about savings can take advantage of Walmart's price match guarantee, free returns, and notoriously low prices. You'll find everything from furniture down to medical supplies at this giant general store. As a bonus, you get a free Welcome Box with product samples when you set up your baby registry.
