I took a trip to BRU this weekend to finish up the loose ends on my registry (only those things that I really needed).
Two things were highly annoying (besides my usual annoyance with BRU which is terrible customer service and poor in-store organization):
1. they had so few things in-store it was laughable. For example: I had a coupon for a humidifier, and the one I had on my registry is the very common crane humidifier. In the 'humidifier section' there were 4 there. None of which were the one I wanted. I can get the one I really want, but was told they are no longer doing ship-to-store and I have to pay shipping. absurd!!! Same thing for baby's bath tup, ergo carrier, and others! As a general trend, I noticed that they carried a ton of the BRU brand items in store, but not much else. BOO!
2. this one is so freakin' ridiculous to me: so apparently you don't get the completion discount until AFTER your baby is born?! Really? I can't get 10% off a box of newborn diapers I had registered for but am now purchasing myself because my baby isn't born yet??? I like to be prepared and have these essentials on hand when baby gets here, so I think this is pretty darn lame.
Does anyone have suggestions for how to deal with this? I didn't even notice I wasn't getting 10% off things until just looking at my receipt now.
What to do, what to do?!
