This blog post uses Amazon Affiliate Marketing; Thanks for taking care of us & Baby G!
Amazon is the number one ecommerce site in the United States and is the fourth most visited site in the country. This makes Amazon’s baby registry easy to use for expecting parents and excited family and friends whom are ready to purchase!
George and I have been Amazon Prime members since before we met each other. (Join us here.) Therefore, it made sense that our registry would be on Amazon. Amazon is a website we are both familiar with and their baby registry offers several perks.
Adding items to your baby registry is easy!
The baby registry has a checklist that is organized by type of product they think you may need for your baby. This prepares you for everything, even if you are a first-time mom or pregnancy brain has got you forgetting even the simplest things!
Of course, feel free to browse around the entire site. You can add virtually anything to the registry with a click of the “Add to Baby Registry” button. My husband even added the complete collection of Godzilla Showa-Era films, stating that “Baby boy needs to learn these!”
Completing your registry earns you your Amazon Baby Registry Welcome Box!
The Amazon Baby Registry Welcome Box
The welcome box for completing your baby registry checklist is 100% free! While it was the only welcome box I put the effort into receiving, I was surprised at what goodies it had.
Most of the baby welcome boxes I had seen on the internet were comprised of a few samples & a free bottle. However, Amazon’s Welcome Box had a mix of 9 samples and full-sized products. My comprehensive review on this box can be found HERE.
Receiving Gifts & Making Returns are easy with Amazon.
Registry gifts began arriving to our home just a few weeks after sending out the shower invitations. The home delivery option is convenient for those who cannot attend the baby shower, or do not want to worry about gift wrapping.
Amazon knows that not everyone takes your registry as the Holy Grail. Using the Amazon registry, there is no need for gift receipts – Amazon keeps track of all your gifts for you. This way, you may start the return process for any purchased items from the “Thank you list & Returns” menu!
Amazon’s Registry Completion Discount is very generous.
The registry completion discount is available directly from the baby registry home-page. You can only use the discount on items in your registry and it will apply to most items.
Currently, Amazon offers 15% off of two orders, up to $2000. Therefore, I decided to be strategic with using it. After our baby shower, I purchased our Graco Modes Travel System ($299.99), our Safety 1st Extra Tall & Extra Wide Baby Gate for our stairs ($52.49), our Ruvalino Diaper Bag Backpack ($40.99) and and a few other miscellaneous items I wanted to have by 36 weeks gestation.
The completion discout is able to be used for up to 60 days after your expected due date. Therefore, I am waiting until after our baby is born to see what else we may practically need.
Choose your Registry Host based on YOUR needs.
My husband and I are most comfortable with Amazon.com and its app. I personally consider myself to be someone who likes the easiest route possible, and Amazon allowed us to do that with our baby registry.
