This was told to me... and I DON'T really like the idea of it... BUT Bed Bath and Beyond is apparently where one really should register. Because they give your guests a 10% discount on the purchase made from your registry. When you receive the gift you return it... and get CASH at FULL value. So for people that want to maximize their cash gifts... they are registering like crazy at BBB with the intent to return the item for cash. Saves your guest a bit of money and helps you get the cash you really want. Again... I don't like this idea, it seems a little dishonest to me, I myself would never do it. But it is all the rage right now.
