Last Friday, I drove to Hudson, MA with my friend Kristi from Moms Own Words, to attend a BJ’s Back to School Blogger Tour. I’m a member and a big fan of BJ’s! Headquartered in Westborough, MA, BJ’s is a leading operator of warehouse clubs in the eastern U.S., currently with 195 clubs and 107 gas stations in 15 states. Check out their website.
It was nice to see the other bloggers on the tour!
We checked out some really great back-to-school items. I found these JUMBO Book Sox (book covers). I teach second grade and some of my students have a hard time finding this size for their books. I’ll have to spread the word where to find them!
On the tour, I learned that I can use manufacturers coupons in addition to the BJ’s in-store coupons! Take for example this 5 pack of Degree. If you could sell these individually, BJ’s will except 5 coupons for this package in addition to their in-store coupon! (As long as you don’t exceed the actual retail price in the total value of the coupons.)
Here’s a BJ’s video about their coupon policy.
I love buying in bulk. My son Andrew is going away to college in about a month, so I was checking out all the things he’ll be needing. I bought a few things for him… a 3 pack of deoderant and a 3 pack of body wash. That should hold him for a while!
Here are some staples that I buy at BJ’s…large spices or vanilla extract, peanut butter, and ketchup.
At the end of our tour, one of the BJ Reps prepared 3 tasty sandwiches which can be found in the BJ’s Member Fall Journal.
Many thanks to the women who gave us the tour, fed us, and warmly welcomed us to this new store!
