Did you know that Bed, Bath & Beyond cheerfully accepts expired coupons? I used two of them today and they were REALLY expired, they were about 6 months old.
One of my readers told me about their policy and I thought I would test it out when I bought some curtains on clearance today.They took them both and said they accept their expired coupons, so save them and use them. They accept the printed ones that you get in the mail (the big blue ones) that have expired but NOT the email coupons if they are expired.
I could not find this information on the company website, so this may be a store by store policy and not a corporate policy. I checked with two additional Bed, Bath & Beyond stores in my area and they also accept the expired coupons. Call ahead and check with your local store, (don’t forget to write down the name of the person you spoke with!)
The person that I spoke with at Bed, Bath & Beyond told me that they are sending out more coupons via email these days, and not as many are being sent out by mail, so if you want to sign up, HERE is the link.
Bed, Bath & Beyond is one of the many retailers that give you cash deposited in to your Upromise account. This retailer gives you 2% back when you shop online with a card that is registered to Upromise.
Upromise helps families save money for college by giving you rebates on your shopping and your dining out. Using Upromise is free and setting up an account takes just a few minutes. All of the rebates are handled online once you register your cards. There is nothing to clip or mail in. This is such an easy way to start saving for college. Once you set up the account, you are on “auto-pilot” when you shop online and dine out using a card that you registered with Upromise.
With your Upromise account, the rebates that you earn can add up quickly. You can choose to set up a 529 college savings plan, pay down a Sallie Mae student loan or receive a check for college expenses.
I have learned that saving money begins with a series of small steps and using a Upromise account is one of the easiest ways I know to start an education fund for college without any sacrifice.
