Did you know you can use “in store only” coupons for Bed Bath & Beyond online? Here’s how I stumbled upon this awesome money-saving strategy.
I wanted to buy a pan on the Bed Bath & Beyond wedding registry of two friends tying the knot soon. If I bought the pan online, I qualified for free shipping but wouldn’t be able to use my 20% off coupon.
If I bought in the store, I could use my 20% off coupon, but would have to wrap and lug the item to the post office. I know this option would be cheaper, but take more time.
I called my local store to make sure they had the pan in stock. They did. Figured I might as well ask about the coupon, too.
“I have a 20% off coupon for the store,” I said, “but if I buy this pan online I get free shipping.”
“If you come into the store, I’ll make sure you can use the 20% off online,” the clerk said.
“Really? And I’ll still get free shipping?”
“Yup. Just come down to the store.”
I got the clerk’s name, which is crucial for follow through, and jotted down the store hours. As it turns out, the pan was cheaper on Amazon and included free shipping, so I never went to Bed Bath & Beyond. But now I know I can use my stash of “in store only” coupons online!
BBB may have slightly higher prices, but their customer service is top notch.
Not that I’ll use all my BBB coupons. So I’m giving away 20% off coupons to the first three people who comment on this post AND email me a snail mail address where I can send the coupon to.
Note, these coupons have already expired, so make sure your store accepts expired coupons. (Mine takes physical coupons that have expired, but not expired Internet coupons). Store policies vary by region.
