What is Amazon Wedding List?
Amazon Wedding List is Amazon's gift registry service that lets married couples-to-be set up a wish list of wedding gifts.
The main benefits of using Amazon Wedding List is the variety of items you can choose from: not only can you select items from Amazon's catalogue, you can also add items from elsewhere on the web using the Amazon Assistant browser plug-in, available for all browers (more on this below).
Amazon also has a huge list of recommended items. You can choose anything from kitchen appliances to dining, to glassware, to toys, electronics and more. See Amazon's full Wedding List recommendations.
You also get free delivery if you're a Prime member or if the order is over £20 (see the full terms here).
Another benefit is that Amazon Wedding List keeps track of who bought which gift via its Thank You list feature, so you can quickly send a thank you note.
Do you get a discount on Amazon wedding registry?
Discounts aren't currently available on Amazon Wedding List UK, but US registrants with Prime memberships can get a one-time 20% discount on remaining items in the gift registry. Non-Prime members get 10% off instead.
If US$500 to $999.99 worth of purchases on the registry have already been made, Prime members get a 20% discount which can be applied to an order worth up to US$1,000, allowing a total discount of $200. Non-Prime members can apply the 10% discount on the same basket value of $1,000, allowing for a maximum discount of $100.
If guests have bought over US$1,000 or more from the registry, then the 20% Prime-member discount applies to a basket value up to $1,500, allowing a maximum discount of $300. The offer expires 90 days after the wedding date.
Amazon Wedding List US also allows you to receive a bonus gift when you register products from select brands.
There are loads of perks to using Amazon Wedding List in the US which aren't all yet available in the UK – check them out here.

If you're a guest attending the wedding looking to buy a gift on the wish list, you can search for the wedding by name on the Amazon Wedding List home page.
You can access your own wedding list by going to Accounts & List. Wedding List appears under Your Lists.
Who can see my gift list?
