8 Reasons Target’s Baby Registry Is the Best Ever

Registering for baby gifts may not seem as crucial as selecting a name or writing a birth plan, but it’s still important—and luckily a lot of fun too! Although there are myriad options when it comes to setting up a baby registry, you really only need to create that list in one store: Target. Here’s why:

  1. It’ll save you and your friends and family time and money. Target offers a Price Match Guarantee so you’ll pay the lower price on items found for less at local or online competitors. No more having to shop around to get the best deal! Don’t forget to manage your registry with the Target Registry app (for Android and iOS) for anytime, anywhere convenience, too.
  2. Two words: Universal Registry. Browsing online and find a unique item that Target doesn’t stock? No worries – just drag the special Target registry button to your bookmarks bar. Then click it when you spot something at any other online retailer that you want to add to your list. Voila! It’ll be there. (We just wish had that option to make all the foods we crave instantly appear, too.)
  3. Free stuff! Once you’ve started your registry, head to Guest Services to pick up a specially curated selection of product samples and $50 in coupons, too.
  4. They’ve got your back (and baby’s too). Target doesn’t want you to miss registering for must-have baby essentials like baby wash, lotion, and Pampers diapers, so they kick start your registry by adding them for you. Just don’t forget to add more so you won’t run out, especially when it comes to diapers – you really can’t have too many! Add multiple sizes so you’re prepared as baby grows.
  5. Target is a new mom’s one-stop shop. Let’s face it, Target basically has everything you could possibly need all in one place, so you’re going to be spending many, many hours in Target once your baby is born. Where else can you do a quick registry exchange (because maybe it turns out your newborn doesn’t really need 13 pairs of shoes) and grab coffee for your sleep-deprived self and buy four other pacifiers you hope your baby will take and pick up an organic, ready-made dinner you can heat up and eat with one hand?
  6. They make group gifting super easy. With a Target registry, friends and family who want to chip in toward big-ticket items can do so seamlessly with this handy feature. No more hassle for gift-givers!
  7. In-store returns and exchanges are simple, too. And they’ll stay that way for up to a year after your due date.
  8. Get a completion discount on whatever isn’t gifted to you. No worries if that umbrella stroller, spare sheet set, or cute bookshelf go unpurchased: You can get 15% off when you buy them yourself after baby has arrived. Stack that with your REDCard discount for a total of 20% off!
