For the Target Baby Registry, most stores will give you the bag if you ask for it, whether or not you start a registry that day. As you can tell from the pictures, I think they were the most generous with their free bags. The Babyganics $2 manufacturers coupon is great for not just Target.
I've been able to collect a few, but please remember to not be too greedy. The products inside this bag I have found to be the most useful, and some are worth collecting in bulk.
If you do actually register with Target, you will get a $20 gift card in the mail after a few months. This is in the form of a coupon that will be turned into a gift card at the register. I don't know if they limit this to 1 per household or not.
Buy Buy Baby:
These bags seem to change every few months. The rule with this store is only one per registry. Sometimes if you ask nicely, the person behind the registry desk will give you an extra. The big winner with this one is the Enfamil. I was able to get a bag when I registered and when I closed out my registry last week. The bags were slightly different. The one I received when I registered had an extra Chicco coupon, but the one I got last week had a Mustela sample.
Babies R US:
I've found this one to be drastically different almost every time I get a bag from them. Like Target, they're usually pretty generous if you ask for a bag even if you're not registering that day (say you registered online). They also provide goody bags when you take classes from them. The contents in the bag can vary from a few coupons to several great samples.
The one I posted a picture of came from a class I took at one of their locations. I've never seen Enfamil samples inside the bag.
This one surprised me, since I wasn't expecting a free bag after purchasing maternity clothes. Because of this, I ended up spacing out my purchases to max out the freebie. They do change their bags every few months. The one that I posted a picture of shows what they are giving out now. About a month ago, they had Avent bottles and 7th generation laundry samples. Recently, they changed them to NUK bottles. The new bags do have a code for a free onesie from Zabees. It doesn't take long to come in.
I've never been turned down for a bag when I ask for one if they have them in stock. In fact, I've split my purchases in two at times, and they do accommodate. I've been told not everyone takes the bag. They may or may not give you a bag if you don't make a purchase. That I have not tried.
So the Amazon baby gift box is pretty nice. I totally failed to take a picture or record an unboxing. You will need to have at least $10 purchased off of your registry before they ship you the sample box. My understanding is the products do change from time to time. The box is worth about $30. There was an enfamil sample inside this box.
