Of Those Who Created Registries for Major Life Events This Year, 30% Reported Receiving Fewer Items Than Expected

AUSTIN, TexasMarch 3, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — RetailMeNot, a leading savings destination within the Ziff Media Group portfolio, is taking their mission of making life more affordable one step further this week by ‘saving registries’ for 10 deserving families. March marks the one-year anniversary since the country was shut down due to COVID-19 and many Americans missed out on celebrating moments and milestones, like weddings, engagement parties, baby showers and more. That’s why RetailMeNot will reward 10 eligible couples or parents-to-be with $1,000 each to put towards their unfulfilled registries and wish lists due to canceled events from COVID-19 through their Spring for Savings nomination contest.

According to a recent survey by RetailMeNot, 40% of Americans said they did not send gifts to those that had canceled events in 2020. Out of 150 consumers who had created registries for major life events, 30% reported they had received fewer items than anticipated, and 32% are unsure of what they would receive due to their event being postponed. Knowing this, RetailMeNot decided to reward couples or parents-to-be with its new program with up to $1,000 per registry. To make nominations and learn more, please visit
