Here are 3 reasons why I love Bed, Bath & Beyond. When I see a great coupon policy, I get excited. I know, I am a little wierd, BUT…
Did you know that Bed, Bath & Beyond cheerfully accepts expired coupons? I used one yesterday and it was about 3 months old. They also let me combine the expired coupon with another Bed, Bath & Beyond coupon (not expired) that I had on the same transaction. I did not have to write two checks.
My reader Linda wrote – “Hi – I think you can also use up to four BB&B coupons in one transaction.”
If that isn’t exciting enough, the cashier told me that the next time I come in, if I bring in another 20% off coupon plus my receipt for yesterday’s purchase that she would do a price adjustment for me. I will pocket about $14.00.
And there is no time limit to bring back your receipt along with a coupon and have the price adjusted. Now, aren’t you excited too?
So save all of your Bed, Bath & Beyond coupons that you get in the mail, but NOT the email coupons if they are expired. Those will not be accepted once 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. If you have kids, or a special kid in your life, you really should sign up for Upromise. Anyone can set up an account to benefit a child, even Grandma and Grandpa or non-relative.
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.
Spend a few minutes on the site and see all the different ways build your college savings account. I recommend taking a few minutes to sign up for the e-Coupons. E-Coupons are automatically added to your grocery store affinity card. You simply click on the coupons that you want to use and then when you swipe your card at check-out, those coupons are automatically added to your Upromise college savings account. You can also stack these coupons with manufacturers coupons. The Upromise coupons are deposited into your account so they are not considered duplicates. You can have immediate savings with your manufacturers coupons and long-term savings with your Upromise e-Coupons for the same product.
You can shop online at over 6,000 stores like Target.com, Homedepot.com, BestBuy.com, Apple and more with 1-25% rebated to your account. There are also over 8,000 participating restaurants that will credit up to 8% to your college saving account and you can also link your drugstore affinity cards.
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.
