Graduates should use MyRegistry.com for the following five reasons:
1. ONE UNIVERSAL WISH LIST
MyRegistry.com provides an online “wish list” where graduates can place items from any retailer in the world including online or brick and mortar stores. Any item they can think of can be placed on a universal registry that can be viewed by friends and family.
2. CASH GIFT FUND
With MyRegistry.com's Cash Gift Service, graduates can politely request and accept cash gifts for any specific item or activity--which they can state on the registry. Whether the cash will go towards a summer vacation before heading off to school or towards their first semester text books, MyRegistry.com alleviates the burden of requesting cash as a gift.
3. COLLEGE PREP SHOPPING
Graduates can reduce their shopping lists for their dorm rooms and school supplies by creating a wish list on MyRegistry.com. They can add items such as bedding, desk lamps, laundry baskets, notebooks, pens or even high priced items such as computers or iPads to their wish lists. This way they can save money on freshman necessities and use it on getting acclimated to their new college and city.
4. LAST SUMMER FLING
Their last summer before school should be a memorable one. Graduates can add items to their wish list that will enhance their last experience at home with the friends with whom they grew up. Sporting events, concerts, Broadway tickets or even weekend trips can appear on their lists; the Cash Gift Service can come in handy for some of the larger ticket items.
5. NO EXCHANGING OR RETURNING OF GIFTS
It’s inevitable that graduates will be exchanging or returning many gifts they receive from those friends of the family or relatives they haven’t seen since they were in grade school; these people haven’t got a clue what the graduate’s likes or dislikes are and will probably guess what they might like to receive as a gift. This will most likely result in the dreaded exchange or return by the graduate. MyRegistry.com eliminates this factor; wish lists can be sent by parents to all relatives months before Commencement.
