This morning, as I was glancing through bjs.com, I noticed the banner shouting at me- Introducing BJs Stocked.
I thought it was going to be something similar to Instacarts one day delivery. However, the BJs stocked are separate.
Now you can order items online at BJs.com and get two-day shipping. However, if you are new to shopping online at BJs.com, it's not the most convenient.
Before your items would arrive anywhere from 3-6 days, this is NOT free shipping.
The one thing that still gets me over BJs.com when I'm shopping online is shipping. As a paying member of BJs ( a $ 25-year membership deal is here), I would like free shipping.
Plus, the items you buy online from BJs are BIG, which means the shipping increases with each item. So at least have a flat rate only, right?!
The other catch is NOT all the items are included in the BJs stocked program.
For example, the Berkley Jensen Shepherd Hooks have free shipping, which is nice, but the label BJs isn't stocked. Which means you won't get it in two days.
To see all the items included in the BJs stocked program go here.
Very Interesting, right?!
I'm an Amazon Prime member, and I get free shipping, free TV shows, movies, and more, right?
Why, as BJ's members, do we not get free shipping? If BJs.com wants to encourage members to shop online, shipping is a considerable drawback.
If you are a Target Redcard holder, you get free two-day shipping, and it's been this way for a long time.
Prices seem to be the same online as in the club for most items. With Instacart, things are slightly higher than regular pricing.
If I want the BJ's toilet paper for $15.99, I have to pay $5 shipping.
How does that encourage someone not to click on over to Amazon?
This does not excite me until there is free shipping. Let me know what you think in the comments below.
If you are really in a pinch and want to save money, Pick up and Pay is still an option- even though it limits you to only nonperishable items.
This was a significant setback in our Facebook group because you couldn't get the staples many families are picking up like milk, cheese, fruit, etc. This is where Walmart wins for pickup grocery options.
I appreciate the effort BJs is putting into it's online presence but it still seems like it's lacking. What are your thoughts?
