I am wondering how to pump gas at BJs? Cheap gas at BJs is a wholesale membership deal. In addition, frequent gas promotions at BJs paired with printable coupons for BJs make filling up at the club a no-brainer.
Millions of Americans cringe every time gas prices rise. You start to plan a family vacation, and before you know it, gas prices are up to almost $3.00 a gallon! People who have wholesale club memberships need to know how to fill up their tanks for less.
BJ’s Wholesale Club is what I like to call the hidden little secret of wholesale clubs. Everyone knows about Costco; it seems, but what about BJ’s? I feel like it is the underdog, and it’s only a matter of time before I’m not the only mega super BJ’s Wholesale club fan! ( I know many of my loyal followers are right here with me!)
If you are a BJ’s member and haven’t filled up your tank at the club, you need to know the following tips. If you are a Costco member, you can apply much of the same information to your wholesale club. I’ll note the differences in the article.
So let’s get to it so you can fill that gas tank like a boss.
Know The Latest Gas Promotion Offer
Always Check the Gas Sign before you enter the club, or quickly check out the gas promos spot on the blog.
There aren’t many days when BJ’s Wholesale Club doesn’t have some gas promotion going on. BJ’s gas promos range from buying select items and receive a certain amount off per gallon of gas. In addition, sometimes they offer any things you buy during a specific time you get extra savings at the pump.
Almost always on a BJs gas promo, you have to buy the items and fill up your tank all in one day. However, you can use coupons on things that are included in the gas promotions. You can find the latest details and coupons on the gas promotions here.
Another promotion that ran was getting gas for a penny if you bought four new tires! , So hey, if you’re in the market for tires, the deal isn’t too shabby.
Different Memberships Offer Extra Gas Savings
There are three different membership options for BJ’s Wholesale Club. One of them comes with a higher price tag at
A BJ’s Perks Elite membership with the My BJ “s Perks MasterCard pays you 5% back on most in-Club and BJs.com purchases.

Fill Up Early
All clubs will vary, of course, on this one. I have found in our area, anytime after 11 am, the gas stations get busy. It’s not uncommon to wait in line for ten minutes filling up. Especially when there is a gas promotion. BJ’s Wholesale club gas stations open earlier than the store. So you can fill up before the doors. The case has been the earlier you go, the faster you fill-up.

You Don’t Have to Pull Up on The Gas Tank Side
If you need gas and it’s busy at the gas station, don’t wait for a line to use for your gas tank. The hoses are extra long so that you can pull up to any lane. I struggle a bit more than my husband when it comes to pulling the hose, but it’s not so bad once you get the hang of it.
Before you start filling up, be sure to pull the hose as much as you can and then start walking over to your gas tank.

Bring Your Gas Cans
We always fill up our gas cans at BJ’s, especially when there is a gas promotion. When my tank is low, and I don’t want to pay higher prices at our only gas station in town, we use our gas can first. You know, it’s sort of like the whole use what you have in your pantry before you go grocery shopping idea!
BJs Ranks High Among Other Competitors
A new study from Market Force Information has revealed that BJ’s Wholesale Club is one of the consumer’s favorite places to fill up their gas tanks. Market Force polled more than 10,000 consumers for the annual study, which ranks gas stations in two separate categories – traditional gas stations and convenience stores, and grocery stores and big-box retailers with gas stations.
“In the grocery and big-box category, BJ’s Wholesale Club took the number one spot in this year’s study, an honor that went to Costco in 2015. Fellow wholesale club Costco ranked second, Kroger ranked third and Sam’s Club dropped a spot to fourth.”
