Target sucks for returns, but 80% of my shower guests shopped at Target. I think many people share my sentiment about BRU - they hate the place and avoid it at all costs!
I had many of the same items on my Target and BRU registries and would delete off each one as things were purchased.
I figure I will register at Buy Buy Baby. I have had only good experiences there with my friends registries, I can use the Bed Bath and Beyond 20% off couupons there and I had a great experience at Bed Bath for my wedding registry. I am assuming the two stores can't be that different with respect to returns, etc.
I don't think we will register anywhere else as I don't plan to have a "themey" nursery so no PBK bedding, etc. for us!
We are registered at BRU and Walmart.
I have heard horror stories from people about returning things to Target, even if they're on your registry, so we're steering clear of there.
My step-sister was registered through Amazon and I thought it was easy but I was annoyed that EVERYTHING got shipped separately b/c it was coming from different places.
Aimee - where are you in NJ?
I'm in monmouth county. I'm driving an hour to cherry hill to go to their Buy Buy Baby, because it really is supposed to be the absolute best. AND you can access the registry online.
We're definitely going to register at buy buy baby, and probably babies r us as well, just for the convenience factor.
BRU and Target. So far my only issue has been BRU changing stuff on my registry from girl to boy.
I did my wedding registry at Target and I also worked there for 5 and a half years during school, and have never had any issue with the return polcy for a registry.
I did BRU and Target. The vast majority of people shopped from the Target registry.

You too?? BRU keeps changing some of my stuff from boy to girl! I've changed the same set of pacifiers back to blue twice now.
To OP: We registered at BRU and Target, plus, we did a WalMart registry for a shower at DH's hometown. (WalMart is the closest store, it was a shower with a bunch of old people that wouldn't drive 45 minutes to another town, so we wanted to accommodate them.)
There is no BBB in the Milwaukee area. We will register at BRU and Target, but register for as much as we can with Target. Possibly PBK but for bedding only, or I may just tell my sister what the bedding is and she'll just buy it since that's what she wants to get us.
We registered at Target, BRU and Wal Mart. If we had a BBB anywhere closer than 5 hours away, I'd have definitely registered there!
Another good place for a universal registry is Myregistry.com. A friend of mine did this and was able to put stuff from Etsy, and all kind of other websites on her registry.
