The Unexpected Items I Always Buy at BJ’s Wholesale Club

When you think of BJ's Wholesale Club, what comes to mind? Bulk buys of toilet paper and laundry detergent? Sure, those are essential items to stock up on, but it's the other unusual things that keep me coming back as a paying member.

If you aren't a BJs member you can sign up for only $20 a YEAR! That's only $1.66 and well worth it.

As a regular BJ's shopper, I've discovered some unexpected treasures I always add to my cart. From gourmet cheeses to high-quality wines, let me take you on a tour of the unexpected items I always buy at BJ's.

Gourmet Cheeses

If you're a cheese lover, you're in for a treat at BJ's. They offer a wide selection of gourmet cheeses that you won't find at your regular grocery store. From creamy brie to tangy blue cheese, there's something for everyone.

My go-to is the Auricchio Parmigiano Reggiano aged 24 months, and has a nutty flavor that I just can't resist. BJ's offers great prices on these specialty cheeses and has a nice selection of other crackers and cheese you can grab for a perfect cheese pairing for your next dinner party.

Organic Produce

Eating organic can be expensive, but BJ's makes it affordable. Their selection of organic produce is impressive and always fresh and high-quality.

I love picking up a bag of organic baby spinach for salads and smoothies, knowing I'm getting the best possible product at a great price.

BJ's also offers organic frozen fruits and vegetables, perfect for when fresh produce isn't available.

High-Quality Wines

BJ's is a great place to stock up on wine for your next dinner party. They have a wide selection of high-quality wines at great prices.

I always look for the Wellsley Farms brand, which offers varietals worldwide. Their Cabernet Sauvignon is a personal favorite that always impresses my guests.

BJ's also offers wine tastings in-store, a great way to try before buying. BJ's offers new snacks monthly to add something special with your wine pairings.

You can check your local BJ's location to see if they sell wine in your region.

Specialty Spices

If you're a foodie, you'll love BJ's selection of specialty spices. From exotic blends to hard-to-find varieties, they have it all.

I always stock up on their Wellsley Farms paprika, which adds a rich, smoky flavor to any dish. BJ's also offers excellent prices on larger quantities, which is perfect for those who love to cook.


You can also find unique blends throughout the year; in the summer, they will have unique BBQ blends; in the winter, you will find blends like Pumpkin pie and others. Last summer, I scored a sweet deal on a blend and was able to use a manufacturer coupon.

Keep in mind you can check for coupons on any of these unique finds at BJ's in the BJ's app; the coupons are sent to you monthly, the in club coupon book, or online at
