10 Black Friday Shopping Tips Every BJ’s Member Needs To Know


It’s November which means it is time to crack down on planning our shopping trips. I love shopping on Black Friday and wanted to share with you these important Black Friday Shopping Tips every BJ’s member needs to know.

I have been a black Friday shopper for the past 10 years but the past couple years shopping on Thanksgiving day has been not good. I loved eating an amazing meal, sleeping for a few hours, getting up early when it’s cold, and chatting with other savers while in line.

Then I shopped BJ’s for Black Friday one year when we bought a memory foam topper and it was fabulous. The line was short ( granted I live in a small town) and people were polite in the store. Now I know this completely depends on where you live.

Something I think all BJ’s members will agree on is that we are happy they are closed on Thanksgiving. Maybe it will make it easier in where you decide to get your deal shopping done this year.

BJ’s has such great prices all year round that I can’t imagine not shopping there for this day as well.

 

10 Black Friday Shopping Tips Every BJ’s Member Needs To Know

 

YOU MUST KNOW THE BJ’S BLACK FRIDAY HOURS

BJ’s clubs will open at 7 a.m. on Black Friday with hundreds of exciting offers, exclusive in-club only deals and dozens of doorbusters.  This year BJ’s plans to offer MORE online only deals as well.

Last year was the first time BJ’s extended their hours and they are again this year.

BJ’s Clubs are extending their holiday hours the week leading up to Thanksgiving.

  • Friday, Nov. 17 – Wednesday, Nov. 228 a.m. – 10 p.m.

EARN DOUBLE POINTS WITH MY BJ’s PERKS

My BJ’s Perks Program Members will have the opportunity to earn double on select purchases made in-club or online at BJs.com during the holiday season. This offer is tempting me to open a credit card with them.

BJ’s Wholesale Club will continue to offer Members convenient shopping options during the holiday season including in-club shopping, BJs.com and its recently launched Pick Up & Pay service.

 

 

MAKE A LIST

Browsing around on Black Friday works but not if you want the hot deals. I have learned that others will go right in front of you and grab that item you were contemplating for 10 minutes and of course it’s the last one.

Look through the ad beforehand and know what you want to get. Add back up items on the list in case they are out of the item you want. ALWAYS check online for the same item before you rearrange all your shopping trips.

 

 

PRICE COMPARE

If you truly want to get the best deal check out the same item at a few different retailers. Stores get competitive around this time of year. So far I have always found BJ’s to be the same or cheaper than other retailers when it comes to black friday sales.

 

DECIDE IF YOU NEED TO SHOP IN STORE OR ONLINE

It’s good to think about the cost of gas your time and sanity when it comes to shopping black friday. Is your item only available in store? Did you check to see if it was available online?  If the item is available for the price you want online I recommend just picking it up that way. Many of the items have free shipping on BJs.com 

Plus this year many deals are available online only. 

 

 

USE YOUR COUPONS

 

 

Don’t forget that you can use BJ’s store coupons and manufacturer coupons on black Friday. This is a mega savings day and coupons are STILL allowed. YES!

Remember that BJ’s is the only warehouse club to allow the use of manufacturer coupons with their BJ’s coupons! Score! PLUS the easiest place for you to find the best deals and sales at the club is in the Coupon Matchup Lists Here.
