With a BJ’s Wholesale Club membership, you’ll find countless ways to save on all the essentials your family needs, just in time for back-to-school.

Here are 5 ways to make the most of your BJ’s membership during this busy season:

1. Find whatever you need, from groceries and backpacks to school supplies and more

BJ’s helps its members stock up on all the essentials needed for back to school, offering a variety of options for dorm essentials, tech, school supplies, snacks and more.

2. Experience unbeatable savings

You can save up to 25% off grocery store prices every day, whether you’re trying to fill those lunchboxes or get dinner on the table, because BJ’s offers incredibly low prices on everything you need to stock your fridge and pantry.

BJ’s members save even more with BJ’s Smart Saver coupon book, and for even more savings, their Smart Saver coupons can be stacked on top of manufacturers’ coupons, being the only wholesale club to do so. At the front of the club is a flyer including even more coupons on items you may be needing to shop for, and as a member, you’ll get personalized coupons plus ways to earn cash back for your next purchase. Additionally, it’s easy to use the BJ’s mobile app to access exclusive offers. BJ’s runs awards programs throughout the year, allowing members to shop and earn cash back for future purchases. The best part: The award is automatically loaded to your card.

And to see how much your savings really added up, you can click into your savings under “Savings and Awards” page of your account. Members can also click into their savings on their BJ’s mobile app, making it a seamless experience to see just how much they saved!

3. Save time with one-stop shopping

You’ll save both money and time by making fewer trips to the store when you can find everything in one place, from TVs to tonight’s dinner. You can take advantage of online shopping, then choose from one of their convenient shopping options like curbside or in-club pickup, same-day delivery or ship-to-home, making it even easier and more convenient to get everything you need for your family.

BJ’s also offers a wide array of services to help you consolidate multiple errands in a one-stop shop. From BJ’s Optical and BJ’s Tire Center to deli platters and custom cakes for entertaining, BJ’s offers much more than just incredible savings.

4. Spend less at the pump

Whether you’re driving the kids to school or activities — or road-tripping to that college destination — the miles add up to dollars fast! Fortunately, BJ’s Gas has great prices every day, and with BJ’s Fuel Savers Program, it’s easy to save even more on gas every time you shop. When you purchase qualifying items, you’ll get $0.10 off per gallon. For each qualifying item you buy, you’ll save another 10 cents per gallon at BJ’s Gas.

In addition, BJ’s offers two credit card options based on your membership that gives you cash back plus $0.10 off gallon every time you fill up.
