Admittedly the worst kept secret in town is that Bed Bath & Beyond paper coupons never expire, despite having an expiration date. But did you know that there is a way to get 20% off your entire purchase, even the low cost items, at BB&B every time you shop in store or online? And it’s not by stockpiling your paper coupons. It’s called BEYOND+ and I’ve been using it for a few years now. Here’s how it works:
BEYOND+ is a membership program. It costs $29 a year.
Why do I love this program? Because, my Bed Bath & Beyond stores have a “drug store” section filled with toiletries such as shampoo, toothpaste, soap, cosmetics and so much more.
Not only are they usually the same price or cheaper than many of the big box retailers, but BB&B also takes manufacturers coupons, even on clearance items.
But, who wants to waste a “20% off one item” coupon on a $2 tube of toothpaste or a $3.50 kitchen utensil? Not me. Now I don’t have to.
Instead I just show a bar code at checkout and — voila! — 20% off my entire haul, even that toothpaste and spatula or items on the clearance racks. It’s as if someone handed you a coupon for every item on the shelves that was worth 20% off.
And you can use your manufacturer’s coupons on top of that 20% off savings. That’s how I managed to buy more than $50 worth of stuff last week and pay only $2.33.
No one likes to pay an upfront fee to “save”, but I can tell you that by using BEYOND+, I easily saved the $29 after only two visits. Not only do you get 20% off your entire purchase (some exclusions apply) each time you shop in store or online, but also receive FREE shipping.
To get the discount in-store, you need to download the BB&B app to your smartphone. Open the app. Click on My Offers. Choose your BEYOND+ discount offer and show it to the cashier.
Or you can go to your account on your computer, print out your coupon and bring it into the store. The printed coupon is good for one transaction and the cashier will take your coupon – you simply print a new one each time you want to shop in-store.
To use it online, simply enter the email address used for the BEYOND+ program in the billing section during checkout and select both your BEYOND+ free shipping and discount offers every time.
So, if you shop Bed Bath & Beyond on a regular basis, consider joining BEYOND+. Once you do, note that your membership automatically renews every year until you tell them to stop.
Also, in the interest of full disclosure, let me say that I am NOT getting anything from BB&B if you sign-up. This isn’t some affiliate program where we make some money from you joining. I just think it’s a great deal and wanted to share it with my MHOTC friends.
