If the couple has selected this option, gift cards will be displayed for purchase on their wedding registry gift list. Please note, you can purchase a Belk Gift Card on belk.com. Gift cards can be redeemed any time on Belk.com. Due to individual state laws regarding gift cards, Belk does not sell or ship gift cards to customers with a California or Massachusetts address.

Managing My Registry
Q:How do I reset my password?
A:Simply click the "Forgot password?" link on belk.com located on the Sign In page. You will be asked to provide your email address, then follow the instructions that belk.com provides for resetting your password.
Q:How long does my registry stay online?
A:Your Belk Wedding Registry will be kept active for 2 years following your wedding/event date.
Q:Items showed up as purchased on my registry that I did not register for. How does this happen?
A:When guests shop in our Belk stores, the home store consultants scan the Wedding Registry barcode so you receive an accurate account of any gifts purchased. If a customer purchases a gift for you that is not on your registry, the consultant will still scan the wedding registry barcode. That particular item will be added to your registry. This process records the purchase price and ensures that you receive the full price paid for the item, should you choose to return it. The item will appear as 1 item requested and 1 item purchased, to discourage any other guests from purchasing the same item.
Q:How can a registry be updated to show an item was purchased if it was not done at the time of purchase?
A:You can access your Belk Wedding Registry any time and make adjustments to the quantities requested. We encourage you do this frequently to manage your registry and limit the number of returns you will have to make.
Q:How can I edit my personal information on the registry?
A:Simply access the Belk Wedding Registry, select the option to "Manage Your Registry." Log in to your account. Once you are logged in, you will see an option to "Edit Preferences" (located in the top left corner of your registry welcome page). Update any addresses or wedding details as needed.
Q:How long does it take an item to show it has been purchased when shopping in a registry online?
A:As items are purchased from belk.com, your registry will update when the item is shipped from the Belk Fulfillment Center. However, if a purchase is made in a Belk store, the quantities on your registry will not update until the next day.
Q:Why do some items on the registry show up as store purchase only?
A:Depending on the size of your local Belk, the assortment of product can vary between online and in store. Therefore, items you can register for may not always be available for guests to purchase online. If you are looking for a particular item, please visit your local Belk store, or contact one of our friendly Customer Service Representatives toll-free, 1-866-235-5443.

California Proposition 65
Q: What is California Proposition 65?
A: In 1986, California voters approved the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act known as Proposition 65. The purpose of Proposition 65 is to ensure that people are informed about exposure to chemicals known by the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects and/or other reproductive harm.
Q: What are the requirements of Proposition 65?
A: Proposition 65 mandates that the Governor of California maintain and publish a list of chemicals that are known to cause cancer, birth defects and/or other reproductive harm. The list, which must be updated annually, includes a wide variety of chemicals that can be found in dyes, solvents, drugs, food-additives, by-products of certain processes, pesticides and tobacco products.
A company with ten or more employees that operates within the State of California (or sells products in California) must comply with the requirements of Proposition 65. To comply, businesses are: (1) prohibited from knowingly discharging listed chemicals into sources of drinking water; and (2) required to provide a "clear and reasonable" warning before knowingly and intentionally exposing anyone to a listed chemical.
Q: What types of chemicals are on the Proposition 65 list?
A: The list contains more than 850 chemicals, and must be updated once a year. The list has a wide range of naturally occurring and synthetic chemicals that are known to cause ‘cancer or birth defects or reproductive harm.’ These chemicals can be used in common manufacturing or construction practices, or may be byproducts of chemical processes, such as motor vehicle exhaust.
Q: What product categories are covered under this warning?
A: There are many commonly used items that fall under the State of California’s Proposition 65 mandates. Some of the products requiring California Proposition 65 warning labels include:
Products made with Fabric, Leather, Vinyl, Foam, Synthetic and Non-woven Material
Glassware, Ceramics and Tableware
Batteries and/or Products that contain batteries
Beauty Products (including first-aid kits and lotions)
Q: Where can I find more information about Proposition 65?
A: For general information on the Proposition 65 list of chemicals, you may contact OEHHA's Proposition 65 program at (916) 445-6900, or visit http://www.oehha.ca.gov/prop65.html
. For enforcement information, contact the California Attorney General's Office at (510) 622-2160, or visit http://ag.ca.gov/prop65/
Q:How do I unsubscribe from Belk's email marketing?
A:When you receive an email from Belk, there is an unsubscribe option at the bottom. Click on this to be excluded from further email promotions.

A:Some of the brands that Belk carries in store and online do not allow for their merchandise to be discounted or discounted more than a specified percent off. When coupon exclusions do apply, Belk provides an online link to the specific restrictions.
Q:Why does my promotional coupon not work?
A:There may be some requirements not met for the special offer, other exclusions may apply or the promotional offer has expired. Please note: Belk.com is only able to apply one promotional code per transaction. Promotional codes are unable to be used in conjunction with other promotional codes on the same order. To allow the maximum amount of savings on any purchase, we suggest that a rough calculation be performed to determine which code is more beneficial to the order in question.
