Planning a wedding and wondering where to register for the big day?
Check out the Target Wedding Registry! We love it for so many reasons. From cookware and furniture to sleeping bags and digital cameras, Target has just about everything you and your partner could ever want for your new life together! ❤️
Target even offers tons of unbeatable registry perks, like a completion coupon for the items remaining on your registry, bonus gifts from select brands with qualifying purchases, AND lots of other awesome benefits to help your special day end happily ever after! 👰🏼🤵🏼
1. Get free coupons!
Ummm….hello savings! The week of your event date, Target will send you TWO 15% off discounts to use on everything left on your wedding registry, one valid in-store and one valid on Target.com only. The discounts will be valid on everything left on your registry and will expire six months after your event date, so you can snag the rest of the items at a discount (but note that the offers exclude select brands)!
Your 15% off coupons will be sent to the email address associated with your registry, but note that your registry needs to be active for at least 14 days before your coupon can be created. You can also access the coupon/promotion from your online registry at Target.com or the Registry mobile app.
Note: The registry coupons exclude gift cards, prepaid cards, alcohol, milk, Levi’s Red Label, LEGO, Bose, JBL, Sonos, Apple, Fitbit, Tile, Google Home/Mini/Hub, LG OLED TV, Samsung TVs, GoPro, DSLR cameras & lenses, mobile contracts, Nintendo hardware and Switch games, PS4 hardware, Xbox One hardware, Simple Human, Traeger, Harry’s, Flamingo, power shave, power dental, Tylenol and Motrin pain relief, clinic & pharmacy, and Target Optical.
2. Buy select brands, get free gifts.
Who doesn’t love getting a freebie for something you were planning on buying anyway!? When you receive or purchase select brands that are on your registry, you can often redeem FREE bonus gifts!
For instance, check out this current promotion! Whenever you receive $300 of Circulon products from your registry, you’ll be eligible to redeem a FREE sweetheart pan from the Circulon website. Note that these offers are subject to change and there may be an additional charge for shipping the bonus gift.
3. Add items from your other registries.
If you’re registering at other retailers or online sites like Amazon, you can even create a universal registry and add those items to your Target Wedding Registry – a great way to keep things organized!
When you see something you like on another retailer’s site, click the “+Target Registry” button on your bookmark bar to add the item to your Target registry. Gift givers will be directed to the site where the item is available for purchase, but note that these items will not automatically be updated as purchased on the Target registry. Also, items purchased from other retailers cannot be returned at Target.
4. Don’t be afraid to price match!
Did you know that Target will price match your wedding registry items? If you buy a qualifying registry item at Target then find the identical item for less at Target.com, select online competitors, or in Target’s or a competitor’s local print ad, you can rest assured that you’ll get the lowest price!
Just bring in the proof within 14 days after purchase and Target will adjust your payment to the lower price (exclusions apply). Target store price matches and adjustments can be completed in store at any lane – or you can call Target.com Guest Services at 1-800-591-3869 for online purchases.
5. Returns and exchanges are easy.
If you receive an item as a gift and later decide that it doesn’t quite fit in your new space, you can easily return or exchange it. Just visit any of the 1,800+ Target stores nationwide to return your new, unopened gifts for up to one YEAR after your big day (exclusions may apply).
6. Easily keep track of your gifts.
Can’t remember who gave you that set of dishes? Or that vacuum? Planning a wedding can be a little crazy, but with Target’s Wedding Registry you can see who gave you what and who you’ve already thanked. Just select the gift tracker icon from your registry page to see a list of gifts purchased, along with the quantity, purchaser name, and date.
7. Enable group gifting.
Don’t hesitate to add expensive items to your registry! With group gifting, Target makes it easy for guests to contribute toward larger items priced over $100 (group gifting is automatically enabled for purchases over $100).
How does it work? Gift givers can contribute toward an eGiftCard for you to put toward the purchase of an item from a Target store or online (instead of the actual gift, you’ll get a Target eGiftCard to purchase the gift yourself). While the price of items may change, the group gift dollar amount will match the price of the item when the first contribution was made to that group gift.
8. Get funds for your honeymoon.
Prefer to have donations towards your honeymoon instead of gifts? Target has partnered with Honeyfund (as seen on Shark Tank!) to allow your friends and family to contribute funds to your honeymoon and newlywed experiences as a wedding gift. You can use the funds for honeymoon travel, adventures, date nights, classes, entertainment, and more! Plus, there are zero fees for gift-givers!
When you register for Target honeymoon and newlywed experience gifts powered by Honeyfund, a Honeyfund account will automatically be created for you. Honeyfund will send an email to confirm your account, and you’ll be able to customize your fund settings. You can also publish a Honeyfund page that is linked from your Target Wedding Registry and customize your Honeyfund page to include wedding details, travel plans, and additional gift offerings for your guests to choose from.
Note that when you activate your account, you can choose one of two ways to redeem your gifts:
- Honeyfund Gift Card: Convert the funds to a zero-fee digital gift card, selecting from a network of digital gift card partners.
- Cash out: Receive Honeyfund gifts as cash into your bank account through WePay for a fee (2.8% + $0.30 per withdrawal transaction).
Note: If you don’t choose a redemption method prior to a gift being given, the default redemption method will be a Honeyfund Gift Card, and it cannot be changed later for gifts already received.
9. Print free registry inserts.
Want to let your guests know where you’re registered? You can easily download and print these FREE shower/announcement inserts to send along with your invites! Easy peasy!
10. Download the free Target Registry app.
Did you know that Target has a handy Registry app (iOS or Android) that’s completely FREE and super easy to use?! With this handy app, you can conveniently add items to your wedding registry (or any other Target registry for that matter), mark items as most wanted to inspire gift-givers, share your registry with friends and family, use the handy checklist so you don’t forget anything – and, you can even scan barcodes to easily add items while you’re at the store! 🙌🏻
