You’ve gone to everyone else’s baby shower, and now it’s time for yours.
Or maybe you’re the first of your loved ones to have a baby shower and you don’t know where to start.
Either way, it’s a great time to make sure you get all the freebies and discounts available. Here’s where to start:
Amazon has stepped up their baby game by offering benefits like 10% off select items in your registry and 15% off if you’re a member of Amazon Family.
If you purchase certain items within 30 days of your due date, you’ll save 10% or 15% if you’re an Amazon Family member.
Plus, you can sign up to get a welcome box with up to $35 in baby samples — for free. You may get items like: Seventh Generation diapers, Johnson & Johnson baby wash samples, organic prenatal vitamin samples, baby lotion samples, an Avent bottle, tons of coupons, and a lot more.
With Amazon, you’re not restricted to certain brands — meaning you can add baby items from any site (unlike other registries).
Amazon also has a return policy allowing you to return baby gear up to 90 days after purchase for free.
Get a 15% off coupon six weeks before your due date for items not yet purchased from your registry. The coupon is only good for one day, but you can use it as many times as you want on the day you choose.
You’ll also score a free baby welcome kit with up to $50 in free samples and offers. In the past, the freebies included: a MAM pacifier, sample pack of diapers, Avent bottle, and Starbucks coupons.
A cool feature of the Target registry is group gifting. It’s easier than ever for multiple guests to contribute to a large-ticket item.
There’s free shipping on orders of $35 or more, or pick it up from your local store for free. You have one year to return new and unopened items if you have the gift receipt.
Since buybuyBABY is a division of Bed Bath & Beyond — that means you can use BB&B’s 20% off coupon on (most) baby items. buybuyBaby also issues their own coupons.
You’ll receive a completion discount that varies between 10% and 15% that you’ll receive a few weeks before your due date.
Plus, snag a goodie bag when you register. It includes coupons, freebies and samples.
You can return items up to 90 days after purchase even if you don’t have a gift receipt as long as it came from the registry.
The great thing about a Babylist registry is that you can add items from any store — big or small — even places like Etsy!
Babylist also compares prices for you so you know you’re getting the best deal.
When you start a registry, you’ll receive a free Hello Baby Box filled with a ton of new products. You’ll also get a 10% registry discount 60 days before your due date that you can use on items not yet purchased. It’ll expire six months after your expected arrival date. Plus you’ll receive free insert cards for your baby shower invitations.
The Land of Nod is a Crate&Barrel store. Some baby registry benefits include free shipping on orders over $99, safe and high-quality items, 10% off remaining registry items for 6 months, and a complimentary design service that’ll help with nursery design ideas.
When you register through Walmart, you’ll get a welcome box with free products and samples, a price-match guarantee on your registry items, and free returns on everything.
The welcome box varies with what products are offered, but past examples include nursing pads, dryer sheets for sensitive skin, baby lotion and shampoo, Dapple soap for cleaning baby bottles, breastmilk storage bags, baby wipes, NUK pacifier, and coupons.
