13 Things You Should Always Buy at BJ’s Wholesale Club

I have been shopping at BJ's for about 10+ years now. I love it! When it comes to these 13 items, you can always count on them being the cheapest there.

The deals at this store are unbeatable! I was so excited when my friend told me about their excellent selection of canned food, cereal, and other pantry items to help make life more affordable for you during tough economic times.

And best yet? They're cheaper than any other place too – which means there's no reason why anyone should have all the good stuff taken care of already 😉

The best part of BJ's is they offer store coupons once a month in the Member Savings Booklet via mail and every two weeks in-store.

Then you can use a manufacturer coupon on top of those savings! As well as grocery savings apps! 

Keep in mind to always check the unit price for the best bargain. BJ's has a certain way they price their items differently from the sale prices at other grocery stores.

Plus, BJ's is the ONLY warehouse club to accept manufacturer coupons. 

Here are 13 Must Buy Items at BJ's Wholesale Club



Cuts of Fresh Meat

During the holiday, members receive coupons for items such as ham, chicken, and turkeys, but fresh meat prices are the best in our area.

Whenever I have price-checked at my local grocery store, BJ's meat is the same or cheaper than Aldi's.

Check online here for your local prices.

BJ's all-natural beef, pork, and poultry are all USA only, 100% vegetarian fed, and are from animals that have never been given antibiotics or growth-promoting hormones.

In addition, the club offers whole primal cuts in many varieties at significant savings, and the Club's Butcher will cut them to Members' specifications at no additional charge.

Many people may not know that at every BJ's, they can ask the butcher to have a piece of meat re-cut and repackaged at no charge. 

This is convenient because people can take their meat home and put it straight in the freezer.


Organic Items

Organic items are not the most accessible product on your grocery list when you have a specific budget, yet the prices on Organics at BJ's ease the dent in the wallet.

BJ's carries many of its brands of organic items at an affordable price. In addition, the club is continuing to add more organic products to its stores.

 The warehouse store offers fresh produce from local farmers.  Check out my 10 Favorite Organic deals to see precisely why this is on the list.

For example, organic apples are just $1.80/lb. The best part is they offer coupons on Organic items every month!

Lettuce/Salad Kits

This could fit in with the Organic, but the prices for fresh lettuce/salad kits are excellent! Even at our local grocery store with a coupon, it's more expensive than the regular price at BJs!

The best part is BJ's frequently offers store coupons on Fresh Express salad kits and Organic Romaine Hearts.


Seafood Items

This is on the list because the quality is there. I tried one more time to get the fish at Aldi's, and the price was the same as BJ's, and the quality was not there. I love Aldi's too, and the Tilapia is ok.

But other varieties of fish, in my opinion, are not worth the money. The savings are incredible when we have a BJ's coupon to use for these items.

Bottled Water

Seriously, a 40 pack for $3.99. ( 32 oz.) I love that you don't have to wait for a sale price. That is the price all the time! That is just $0.10 a bottle.

I have a list of all the water bottle prices at BJ's in a post here. Even if it is not the store brand, the water is a must-buy.


Paper Products

I love the prices of paper products at BJ's. Toilet Paper, paper towels, and tissues are items I always get from the club.

Without a BJ's coupon, Kleenex brand tissues are still less than $1 a box. However, there are many coupons for Kleenex in the newspaper inserts and online frequently that you can get packs of tissue for less than $1.

Here is an example of a past deal:

Kleenex (10 pack/160 sheets) – $12.99
Use the $3/1 clipless coupon and
Use three $0.50/3 printable coupons here
Final Price: $8.49 or $0.85 each

BJ's has its brand, and I love the quality. Berkley and Jensen Toilet paper is $0.49 for a double roll without a coupon. They offer a $3 off this brand coupon every three months! That is just $0.41 for a double roll or $0.16 for a regular registration

Here is an example of a past deal on Paper Plates!

Berkley Jensen Heavy Duty Coated Paper Plates (375 ct) – $11.99
Use the $2.50/1 BJs coupon
Final Price: $9.49- or $0.02 a plate!

Check out the comparison of BJ's Brand Paper towels to Bounty here.

duracell coppertop aaa batteries


I compared the BJ's brand Berkley Jensen batteries to Duracell, and the BJs ones lasted longer and were cheaper.

You can get a pack of Berkley Jensen AAA Alkaline Batteries at BJs, 48 ct., for $18.99.  They also run sale prices on these batteries often.

The Duracell CopperTop AAA Batteries, 34 ct., is $17.99, and we don't see any BJs coupons for these.

That ends up being only $0.39 per battery for the BJs brand. Or you could pay $0.52 for Duracell!

Laundry Supplies

The BJ's brand Berkley Jensen is so affordable regular price. You can get a 196 oz for $16.99. Then almost every other month, you can use a $3 off BJs coupon, making it only $13.99! That's a steal. It is comparable to Tide.

Propane Tanks

It wasn't until last year that we started using propane tanks for a grill.

Of course, we still love grilling with our charcoal, but I looked at every place in our city, and BJ's had by far the best price.

Only $9.99 for a propane tank refill as of 2021. The tank itself you can buy for $29.99.  This is a must-buy for sure on many people's lists.

Baby Supplies

You may have noticed that I love BJ's brand items, and when our kids were in diapers, I loved their diapers, and the cost was around $0.10 per diaper.

With my first baby, I used Targets Up & UP diapers which I loved, but then I found that BJ's prices were lower for Luvs and the BJs brand.


If you are a Pampers or Huggies lover, every month, BJ's has its store coupons for these brands, and you can easily find coupons online for these brands as well.

The formula is another excellent option that is always less than Target and Walmart. This is a must-buy for parents when you have a coupon to use.

Baby Bibs

Car seat, bibs, the list doesn't end. From diapers to baby food, every single item has been the best buy at BJ's.

Baby Bibs

This month, we have so many BJ's coupons for Baby Items. If you need supplies, check out these deals. 

Spices/Herbs/Baking Supplies

The spices and herbs are a bargain if you love making your spice blends and cooking. Yes, you get a large bottle, but the cost is way less than your local grocery store.

I love getting my Organic Cane Sugar 10 lbs for $9.99.  A 10 lb. bag of Gold Medal Flour is just $4.99.

If you need an app to help with your meal plan, this is my FAVORITE one.


My favorite pantry staples are a tie between the Wellsley Farms Pure Vanilla Extract, 16 oz. for $10.99( Update prices of vanilla have skyrocketed.

This is now $20.), and the Fleischmann's yeast 4 lbs of yeast for $2.99 if you need a spice or baking ingredient do your budget a favor and buy it at the club.

Seasonal Items

If you are a wholesale shopper, you probably love the ever-changing selection in the middle of the store. Much like Costco, seasonal items move quickly.

I find BJ's and Costco to keep a nice assortment of items in the middle section throughout the holidays. If I had to choose one club over the other, I have one that I think is a better deal here.
