Or if you are super cheap like me– no shame here; you can read below for ways to shop at BJ’s Wholesale Club without a membership.

SHOP FOR ONE DAY

*UPDATE: BJ’s Now Offers a one-day shopping pass for online shopping only. The good news with this is you can choose curbside pickup to avoid the hefty shipping charges. You can also stack coupons like the deals here.

ABOUT Online Shopping Pass:

BJ’s 1-Day Online Pass allows non-Member guests to experience the benefits of BJ’s Online Access Membership for 24 hours without purchasing a membership from BJs.com. For example: If you enrolled in BJ’s 1-Day Online Pass at 11:59 pm, you can shop and order from BJs.com till 11:59 pm the next day.

Sign up here.

  • Guests enrolled in BJ’s 1-Day Online Pass are restricted to our “Ship It” service only. Free “In-Club Pickup” and “Same-Day Delivery” are not permitted.
  • Guests enrolled in BJ’s 1-Day Online Pass are not able to use clipped coupons but will receive BJ’s wholesale price for “Ship It” orders.

When you shop online, be sure to Sign up With Rakuten, so you get cash back for shopping at BJs and so many other retailers. You can sign up through my referral link here and get $20! ( Right now at BJs, you earn 1.5% cashback)

You do not need a membership to just walk into BJ’s to shop. You can go through the entire store find what you like and see if it is even worth the membership.

If you find something you like and do not have a friend with you who has a BJ’s membership you can go to the member service desk and grab a one-day shopping pass.

When you use a one-day shopping pass at BJs you will be charged a 20% surcharge over and above BJ’s listed prices on all merchandise except alcohol.

If you decide to buy a membership seven days after shopping with your one-day pass that 20% surcharge will be applied to your membership.

ORDER ONLINE

BJs recently added a new membership option, online access only membership. For $10  for the whole year, you can shop online only. I know it’s not FREE but it ends up being $0.83 per month to shop online at BJs and get member prices. 

The downside is many items have a shipping cost. You can shop online for ONE day for FREE- which they recently added this year 2020.

Not all items found in a club are available online. It’s worth looking into though because there are still awesome online clearance deals. 

3-MONTH FREE TRIAL

Check your local newspapers for the three-month free trial memberships. I haven’t seen one online in months. It is worth calling your local club to see if they are currently running a free membership trial.

I was told by a BJ’s employee you can only get a free trial when you go to your local club’s customer service desk.

This past year BJs did a Welcome One and All event for the first time where shoppers didn’t need any membership to walk into the store and shop and no surcharge when purchasing items.
