Spur is not a cash registry.

Couples register for real experiences that they plan on enjoying together. Spur partners with real experience providers like spas, breweries, and tour companies.
These partners offer their experiences at or below standard retail price through Spur.
Spur does not charge fees for creating a registry or purchasing gifts. Spur simply earns a sales commission from our experience partners.
The average couple creates three wedding registries. Many include one for products, another for cash, and Spur for unforgettable experiences.

How does it work?

Couples create a free wedding registry through the Spur website or the app on iPhone and Android. Couples then choose from thousands of real experiences to add to their wedding registry. Friends and family purchase experiential gifts. Once couples are ready to make a memory, they can schedule their experience through their Spur account.

Why use Spur for our wedding registry?.

Science tells us that a key to happiness is sharing experiences with loved ones. Spur is a platform where couples “collect moments, not things”.
Spur recognizes that great gifts come in many forms including products, cash, and experiences.
The average couple creates three different wedding registries to cover the range of gifts.

What is it like for guests to purchase?

In two words… easy and convenient. After creating a Spur wedding registry, you will have a URL that you can share with your friends and family.
Spur recommends that you also link your registry to your wedding planning site such as The Knot or Zola.
Spur also physically mails announcement cards that you can share with your wedding invitations.
Guests can go to spurexperiences.com and quickly search for your wedding registry. They can see what has been purchased and what experiences are still available.
Guests select an experiential gift and make a purchase online. They receive an immediate confirmation email that includes an optional voucher to print.

How do we know what gifts were received?

When a gift is a purchased, you will receive an email letting you know. You can open “Gift Tracker” from your Spur account to see all gifts received, from whom they were gifted, and any messages left with the purchase. After your wedding day, Spur also sends a convenient email that summarizes all gifts received and includes contact information for mailing “thank you” cards.

How does partial purchase work?

For gifts that cost over $100, Spur gives customers the option of “partial purchase”. Spur splits the cost into 10 partial units (each priced at 10% of the total cost).
This keeps gifting affordable and flexible while allowing couples to feel free to add extraordinary experiences. If the experience is not fully funded,
couples have the option of purchasing the remaining units or simply exchanging the partial funds towards credit in their e-wallet.

What is the e-wallet?

Many couples receive an experience but later decide that they would like to enjoy a different experience instead. Spur created the e-wallet to make give flexibility to our couples. The e-wallet holds the funds from all gift certificates, ticketing purchases and any exchanges. Couples can use the e-wallet towards the purchase of any experience at any time. Please note that Spur is not a cash registry and funds are not paid out as cash. Spur registries are intended for couples to actually go on the experiences.

What about gift certificates?

Some guests want to buy an experiential gift but prefer the flexibility of gift card. Guests can easily purchase a gift card and the funds are deposited in your e-wallet.
Unlike many gift cards, these never expire, and you don’t have to worry about losing a physical card.
As mentioned above, you can apply these funds towards any experience at any time.

How does ticketing work?

Spur partners with a ticketing provider to bring sports, theater and concerts to our customers. You can simply add the events that interest you to your Spur wedding registry. For instance, you could add “Los Angeles Lakers Tickets”. You don’t need to know what specific date or event you plan on attending when you add the ticketing experience to your registry. Guests can choose the amount that they would like to contribute, and those funds are deposited in your e-wallet. You can then click into Spur ticketing and choose any event (even if you decide on something other than for which you initially registered) and select your seats. Please note that this is a resell environment (similar to companies like Stubhub) so tickets may be priced higher or lower than original face value.

What if you change your mind about an experience?

You can always exchange one experience for another.
Spur is not a cash based registry. There is not an option to cash out unused experience.
Don’t worry! The vouchers do not expire and if a provider goes out of business the funds will be in your e wallet to use on another experience.

Want to continue to go on experiences or buy for a friend?

While Spur started as a wedding registry, it has evolved to so much more.
Experiences can be purchased outside of registries as gifts or simply buying for yourself.
