1. Price matching
I often find myself hunting down deals on items that are sold out. But instead of driving from store to store, I price match! Bed Bath & Beyond will match competitors’ prices as long as the items are identical. However, If you have a savings certificate or coupon, you can either price match the item or apply the coupon (whichever gives you the most savings), but the two offers cannot be combined.
2. Gift card offers
Whenever I have my eye on a pricey item, I try to hold out until I can find a great deal or get a little something extra with my purchase. Bed Bath & Beyond often runs promos that offer an added goodie with the purchase of a select item. In the past, I’ve seen offers such as a free $50 gift card with the purchase of $300 or more in Calphalon, as well as gift card promos on Keurigs, bedding and more! Whenever I take advantage of these deals, I like to set aside the gift card and use it for a holiday or birthday gift. This is a great way to get something that you want and get someone crossed off that Christmas list at the same time!
3. Price adjustments
Have you ever purchased something at full price only to find a coupon a few days later? I know I have, and it’s always such a bummer! Luckily, Bed Bath & Beyond offers price adjustments if you come back at a later time with your receipt and coupon. The official policy doesn’t list a specific time frame for how long you can request an adjustment—it’s generally left up to each store. However, I’ve found that most stores are happy to do price adjustments within a couple of weeks.
Okay, we all know about that great coupon that comes in the mail every so often from Bed Bath & Beyond, but you may not be aware that they accept other kinds of coupons, as well. In fact, Bed Bath & Beyond accepts manufacturer coupons and competitors’ coupons! Their coupon policy states that they gladly accept competitors’ coupons for products also available at those competing stores. The coupon cannot be expired, and exclusions may apply. Their policy is similar for manufacturer coupons—they will accept them as long as your purchase is for the exact product on the coupon and the coupon is not expired. If you’re a coffee drinker, Bed Bath & Beyond occasionally runs sales on K-Cups, and you can nab some great deals when you use a manufacturer coupon with these promos!
5. Cash back
Everyone loves getting cash back for shopping online, and Bed Bath & Beyond is one of the best places to do it! Most cash back sites offer cash back at Bed Bath & Beyond—for example, Shop at Home offers 5 percent back on your purchase. One of the features that I love about Shop at Home is that they also show you all of the available coupons for the store. Last time I went through Shop at Home to get to Bed Bath & Beyond, I spotted coupons for free shipping on select coffee products and 25 percent off select Yankee Candles!
6. Catalogs and emails
Bed Bath & Beyond’s emails and catalogs are great tools when it comes to saving. Both the emails and catalogs often contain coupons for offers like 20 percent off one item or $5 off of a purchase of $15 or more. The coupons in their catalogs and newsletters can generally only be redeemed in-store, but the coupons that arrive via email vary between in-store and online use, which is wonderful if you’re eyeing an item that you can’t find in your local store. The coupons alone are reason enough to sign up for the emails and newsletters, but it gets better—they’re usually packed with the deals and sales that are currently running, and the catalogs even feature clearance items! In fact, not long ago I received a catalog that showed select bedding on clearance. It just so happened to be the bedding that I had been coveting for weeks!

You can snag some pretty spectacular deals at Bed Bath & Beyond if you know where to look! The clearance in most stores is actually located in two different areas within the store. You’ll often see shelving units or bins filled with clearance items located in the main aisles. These are usually newly marked down items and often feature seasonal items. In addition to these bins, you’ll usually find clearance hidden within each department. Each store is set up differently—sometimes it’s on an endcap, and other times it’s in a bay with the regular merchandise, so it’s important to check all areas of the store. In the past, I’ve scored $60 curtain panels for $9.99 and reusable baking cups marked down from $7.99 to $2.99! Don’t forget to check their online clearance section, as well. In the past I’ve seen brownie, cake and Madeleine pans marked down 30 percent or more. Bed Bath & Beyond also offers the ability to search stores in your area to see if these items are in stock near you. This is a great tool to use if the item you want is sold out or doesn’t ship for free.
