Promoting frugality as a way to live a simple and prosperous life.
Full disclosure: I do not shop at BJ’s Wholesale Club for no other reason than the fact that I don’t want to pay for a membership. So when I have the opportunity to shop there (on a free trial membership pass, for example), I take it.
The other day during one of my coupon workshops, in walked an associate from the new BJ’s Club that is due to open somewhere up near New Fairfield, CT. The BJ’s associate, there to promote the new store, explained to a surprised audience that you can use more than one manufacturer’s coupon per multiple pack. If there is a three pack of crackers, for example, you can use three coupons. Evidently most of the people in the audience did not know this about BJ’s, so I promised to share this tidbit of good news with TFF readers.
Here’s what the coupon policy states on the corporate website (so, clip and bring with you…)
“What are the guidelines for using more than one coupon?
When purchasing a multi-pack of “individual for sale” packaged items, which is a set of items that could be sold individually (each item has a barcode) shrink-wrapped and sold together, Members can combine one BJ’s-issued coupon with manufacturers’ coupons. However, you cannot exceed the actual retail price in the total value of coupons.
Examples of a multi-pack:
- Three-pack of toothpaste
- Two-pack of salad dressing
- Three-pack of taco kits
Examples of products that are NOT multi-packs:
- Box of cereal containing two bags (the bags cannot be sold individually)
- Case of water
- Case of soda
- Case of motor oil
Members may also use one BJ’s coupon and one manufacturer’s coupon on a single item.
In terms of manufacturers’ coupons that are “buy one, get one free,” we will honor the coupon for items in stock as long as our price does not exceed the maximum value stated on the coupon. If the manufacturer’s coupon does not state the maximum value, we cannot honor the coupon.
We cannot accept multiple BJ’s-issued coupons on a product.”
Great news for BJ shoppers!
