Last year I wrote an article comparing the individual snack bags to the big bags at BJs. Wondering if the higher price tag was worth the time saved. Is it really cheaper to buy a bag and package it all up into snack size bags?
The answer depends. It is slightly cheaper to buy the big single bag of snacks at BJs, but if you opted for the multi snacks you are paying only 2¢ per bag more on average. Many BJs members in our Facebook group agreed the extra cost was worth it. You can see the article with comparisons here.
One of the benefits of shopping at BJs is the coupons they offer. It’s not just BJ’s store coupons, but they allow manufacturer coupons to be used in ADDITION to their own store coupons. ( If you are new to couponing at BJs, and this is exciting I have a whole list of all the coupon stacks available at BJs and other retailers here for you)
Many of the snacks listed below have clipless coupons during back to school time. August/September you will see almost all the multipack snacks on sale.
If you are reading this post and it’s not during back to school time, be sure to use our deal finder tool here, to see if any of these items have coupons and are on sale. You can always use the coupon database to search for manufacturer, e-coupons and BJs store coupons HERE.
This is a new snack item at BJs recently. Typically you only see the big 40 oz. bag of Traditional Chex mix for $6.99 at BJs. If you want a variety you will have to grab the Chex Mix Classics snack size bags. You get 30 bags that include 10 Cheddar, 10 Bold and 10 Traditional.
Each bag is 1.75 oz.
You are getting 52.5 oz for $8.49. Or you can pay $6.99 for the 40 oz bag and still have to package them up and buy the Ziploc bags and it’s all one flavor.
Now through September 5th, 2018 there is a $1.50 clipless coupon. Basically, a clipless coupon in the BJ’s members world is a sale price or instant savings.
You pay $8.49 for 30 bags.
All you need to do is have the kids grab one or you grab and toss it in their lunchbox! You are paying 28¢ a bag! Cheaper than the vending machine.

Entenmann’s Little Bites oh these have a memory in my heart. About a year and a half ago I bought these for my girls for the first time ever. I wasn’t a fan of how much sugar they have. I was a little bit of a stickler on how many they could have in a week! HAHA, so one day when I’m cleaning their room, I looked in their closet and found FOUR empty packages of Little Bites.
When I turned around their two little faces looked at me this was when they were 3 and five, and said: “Mommy, they were SO good.”
It was an interesting moment. One I can laugh about now, but at the time I thought oh my gosh.
So I like to treat the girls to these once in a while and when BJs has a coupon to stack with a manufacturer coupon they are the best deal.
Inside these kid-favorite snacks are 20 pouches. The original price is $9.49. It seems every other month BJs has a $1.50/1 coupon off Little Bites.
You can choose from Party Cakes, Cookies and Cream, Blueberry Muffins, Strawberry yogurt, Fudge Brownies, or my kids favorite Chocolate Chip.
Now through Sept. 6th, 2018 you can save $1.50 on these with the BJs coupon and stack a $0.50/1 coupon here.
Your final price is $7.49 or $0.37 a pouch.
