Have you been browsing around BJ’s seeing that beautiful dish set but wondering, will it ever go on sale? Today you are going to learn the secrets to BJ’s Pricing system.
BJ’s doesn’t flash any type of sale signs. They have BJ’s coupons which I like to think of as a sale price at the club and they have price reduced items and then they have their number coding. This coding is how you can become a very savvy BJ’s Member. These price code hacks were confirmed personally by me and a BJ’s Manager.

Here are the Hacks to BJ’s Pricing System
When you are reading a price tag at BJ’s always look at the orange area to see how much you are paying per unit cost. This is how you can see if you are getting the best deal on a product to price compare to your local retailer perhaps.
Prices ending in a 9 – You will pay full price for the item.
Prices ending in .90 and .00 – Manager’s special discount. These are typically items the store wants to move out. They are typically discounted 10% per week for a maximum savings of 60% off. These are a bit harder to find and may end up on endcaps of your store.
Product Codes at BJ’s :These are the numbers on the price tag right next to the item number at the top. There are four product codes that are used.
Product Code 1/ Or No Code at Top: It is a regularly priced item that will be restocked.
Product Code 2: Product is discontinued and once it’s gone, it’s gone. Many times I see clipless coupons on these or like below the Price Reduced written right on the price tag. Our store has many of these sweet deals.
Product Code 7: A one time buy -seasonal Christmas/Easter products.
Product Code 9: Products that are going to be sent back to the manufacturer for a variety of reasons. They won’t be restocked and likely will be gone within seven days.
Clipless coupons show up next to the price and automatically are discounted at the register. You can stack BJ’s coupons and manufacturer coupons with a clipless coupon.
