Curious about wholesale club memberships, but haven’t had time to to do the research or take the plunge? BJ’s Wholesale Club is offering a free three-month membership.
Visit BJs.com for access to a coupon you can print or show on your phone at your local club’s member services desk. The offer expires on Dec. 31, 2016, making it a perfect opportunity to stock up for upcoming holiday celebrations.
Here’s the coupon:
BJ’s Trial Membership Offer is Really Free — No Strings Attached!
The offer works for new members only; one per household, please. You have to show photo ID when you apply at the member services desk. Trial members can’t shop online — you’ll actually have to go to the store in person (gasp!) to get these deals.
BJ’s customer-service line confirmed that no payment method is required when you sign up for your trial, and the wholesale club will not automatically renew your membership when it expires.
Instead, you’ll be given a member number for your temporary membership, and if you choose to extend that membership after your three months are up, you’ll need to speak with the member services desk to complete the process and keep that number.
Yearlong memberships at BJ’s start at $50 per year.
BJ’s claims its grocery prices are 25% lower than grocery stories, and the club also accepts manufacturer coupons to help you save more. BJ’s also offers low gas prices at its clubs’ pumps, although BJ’s Perks Elite credit-card holders save the most on gas — an additional 10 cents per gallon.
Your Turn: Will you take advantage of the free membership offer at BJ’s?
