I routinely carry a membership for BJ's, a wholesale club. Many people ask me why when conventional coupon wisdom says to ditch warehouse stores. Well, BJ's offers excellent household items. The store frequently offer dollars off their own listed prices in instant savings deals and includes the shipping cost in the price of the item! They have some excellent knockoffs!
A set of stylish Safavieh Annie Nesting Tables is on sale at Kohl's for $239.00 (regular price $299.00). That doesn’t include taxes or shipping. BJ's offers the Gramercy 2-piece Nesting Tables set (a nearly identical duplicate) for just $139.99. Savings: $114.40 or 45 percent (based on my tax rate of 6 percent).
Carolina Rustica offers this gorgeous Palecek Hudson Leather Round Tub Chair. With free shipping, the price is $988.31. BJ's offers their Baxton Studio Belinda Bonded Leather Club Chair for just $399.99 — for TWO chairs! Savings: $1,576.63 or 80 percent on two.
Prop up your feet on Pottery Barn’s sleek saddle leather Sullivan Leather Cube ottoman for $299.00. That doesn’t include a 10 percent shipping charge. BJ's Braxton Studio Metra Bonded Leather Ottoman comes straight to your home for just $47.99! Savings: $280.91 or 85 percent.
Crate and Barrel offers a lovely Brody Leather Rectangle Ottoman with a slated storage shelf for the perfect modern upgrade for a coffee table. That style comes with an $899.00 price tag and a shipping charges of up to $119.00. But BJ's offers an elegant alternative with the Braxton Studio Oscar full leather ottoman with a similar storage shelf for $399.99. Again, shipping is included in the price. Savings: $618.01 or 61 percent.
At $50.00 per year in BJ's membership fees, your knockout savings could add up fast!
