You can now register for your wedding gifts at the same place where you stock up on mega-size paper towels, jumbo jars of marinara and a lifetime supply of frozen chicken breasts. That’s right, Costco has joined the registry business.
The Costco Gift Registry is a partnership with the already popular MyRegistry.com, which lets you make a universal registry with items from all of your favorite stores, such as Williams-Sonoma and Target. It’s also part of Weddings by Costco, which is a compilation of things you might need before tying the knot: engagement rings, wedding rings, invitations, food and flowers. Non-members must make an account to purchase registry items online, and some Costco.com items are members-only.
If you’re considering a Costco gift registry, you just have to head to Costco’s website and find the items you and your beloved will need to feather your nest. On each item’s page, instead of adding it to your cart, you can click “Add to Registry.” Then, create a new registry or log right into your MyRegistry.com account, and you’re all set.
Still not convinced you’d want wedding gifts from Costco? Well, here are a few of the great items you can get from the big-box store.
It’s not a thrilling gift, but they’re pricey and, let’s face it, your money is going toward the reception and you probably need a vacuum. This Shark Rotator Professional Lift-Away Bagless Upright has great reviews and costs $159.99 right now.
2. Plates And Bowls
A wedding is a great time to upgrade from grandma’s old dishes. This fun red set from Restaurant Essentials comes with four dinner plates, salad plates and bowls. It’s currently listed at $59.99, but remember you may want to register for two or three depending on how often you’ll have guests.
3. Stand Mixer
Yes, your wedding guests can treat you to a classic KitchenAid stand mixer right off of your Costco registry. This is a members-only item, and Costco is offering $60 off.
4. High-Tech TV
Don’t forget you’re registering at Costco—and that means you have some unique options that you might not find at stores where couples traditionally register. You can sign up for something fun, like this Vizio 65-inch TV, which is currently priced at $1,169.99.
While you’re surfing the Costco site, might we suggest a Costco Travel honeymoon? Members can take all kinds of trips, including vacations to Turks and Caicos, Tahiti and Fiji. If you’re considering getting a Costco membership—whether for discount vacations or stocking up on pantry essentials at affordable prices—check Groupon first because you may be able to score a deal.
