BJ's Wholesale Club is a one-stop shopping destination for name brand, high-quality food and merchandise at prices that are significantly lower than supermarkets, super-centers, department stores, drugstores and specialty retail stores.  In fact, BJ's can save consumers more than 30% off supermarket prices.

BJ's value are compelling, especially when people are looking to save money.  BJ's is able to pass the savings onto its members in the form of lower prices for the following reasons:
  • BJ's is extremely efficient in shipping and handling goods
  • BJ's does not have expensive displays, fany buildings, or high advertising costs
  • BJ's annual memberships fee also helps eliminate factoring operating costs into pricing
BJ's carries the most product variety of any other wholesale club with more than 7,000 items, including supermarket-sized staples.

BJ's is the only whole club to accept all manufacturer's coupons in addition to in-club coupons and for greater convenience, offers the most payment options including EBT.

Last week I  participated with other Ohio bloggers to learn more about what BJ’s has to offer for back to school shopping!  So I went armed with my coupons and back to school shopping list to see how many items I could mark off!
Clothes, fridges, printer paper and school supplies! They have everything!
Whether your child is in elementary school, high school or college BJ's has something for everyone!  Preparing for back to school is not any easy task!  If you have a college age kid, then not only do you have to purchase school supplies but also items to furnish their dorm or apartment!     BJ's has all the essentials from snacks and drinks to fill the mini fridge to space saving items like microwaves, mini  crock-pots, bed raisers, fridges, etc.

Just a few of the items I picked up for back to school!
If you have the younger aged kids like I do, then you probably had a list of items to pick up like I did.  The list consisted of Clorox wipes, printer paper, Kleenex tissues, dry erase makers, folders, paper, glue, Ziploc bags,  pencils, etc.     I was excited to find printer paper sold in double packs for only $5 and Kleenex and Clorox wipes in bulk to last the classrooms during cold and flu season.  They also had BIC value packs, notebooks, binders, portfolios, planners, crayola kids and so much more!
