We’ll Tell You if This $29 Bed Bath & Beyond Membership Is Really Worth It

They’ve finally done it. They’re going to get me for good.

I’m not talking about the IRS. I’m talking about Bed Bath & Beyond.

Goodbye, single coupon. Hello, annual membership!

That’s right, membership.

The nationwide retailer and hawker of all-the-household-things-I-want-but-don’t-know-why (or how to use) just unveiled its new Beyond+ Beta membership program.

What You Can Get With Beyond+ Beta

For $29 a year plus applicable taxes, members will receive 20% off every purchase they make at Bed Bath & Beyond stores and online.

Members also get free standard shipping on every online order. Now that’s music to my ears. My inner Abbi Jacobson is doing back flips. You “Broad City” fans feel me.

What You Can’t Get With Bed Bath & Beyond Membership

Not so sneaky. Thinking of combining that 20% off one item coupon with the 20% off your entire purchase deal? Sadly, you can’t.

The membership discount cannot be combined with any other coupon, special offer, price match or discount. Bummer.

Also, free shipping doesn’t cover surcharges or overweight items.

Unfortunately, other pesky exclusions apply. You can’t use the 20% off on certain brands or products including A Pea in the Pod, Kate Spade, Under Armour, Vitamix, diapers, wipes, formula, baby food, portrait studio service and more. See all the exclusions under “Offer Exclusions” on the terms and conditions page.

Other Fine Print to Consider

There’s no turning back once you commit. The membership is nonrefundable and will automatically renew if you don’t cancel before the one-year term is up. You can cancel your membership online or by calling Bed Bath and Beyond customer service at 1-866-532-6826.

Currently, the beta membership is valid in the U.S. only.

How It Can Save You Money and a Hassle

Have no fine-print fear? This is a great deal, especially if you’re like me and submit an order only to realize you forgot an item that you then have to pay extra shipping for.

Or instead of hoarding mashed-up coupons in your wallet and holding up the checkout line as you try to find them, you can save every single time without the hassle.

Also keep in mind that the membership program is in its infancy — hence the word “beta” — so Bed, Bath & Beyond could add or remove benefits as it shapes the program.

Not ready to commit? That’s OK. We’ve got you covered with other ways to save at Bed Bath & Beyond.
