How to sign up for Big Lots Big Rewards and get your Big Lots freebie every weekend.

First, you’ll need to visit BigLots.com on your computer, laptop, or mobile device (there’s no official Big Lots app) and create a free Big Lots Rewards account. You can also sign up in store. If you’re new to Big Lots, they’ll give you a 15% – 20% discount toward your first order within three days of signing up. If you created your account online, your membership card will be digital. Sign up in store, and it should be a physical card. To find your Big Lots Rewards digital membership card (if you signed up online), go to My Account. Once there, you can tap Add to Wallet to put your card into your Apple or Android digital wallet.

Also helpful? Don’t fear that giving Big Lots your phone number will mean countless sales calls or spam messages. One Krazy Coupon Lady just signed up for the Big Lots Rewards program and has not received one phone call or text message. The communication is all email-based.


Now that you’re a rewards member, you qualify for the Big Lots freebie on April 7 – April 9: a 6-ounce Colgate Max Fresh Toothpaste.

To get your Big Lots Free Item Weekend freebies, you must be a Big Lots Big Rewards member. Once you sign up, you’ll need to visit your local Big Lots and claim your freebie. It’s really quite easy — but yes, the freebie is in store only. This weekend it’s a 6-ounce Colgate Max Fresh Toothpaste.


Pick up your Big Lots freebie early.

The Free Item weekend starts on Fridays and ends on Sundays. But the offer is only available while supplies last. So if you wait until Sunday, chances are you may be out of luck and go home empty-handed. To redeem your freebie, simply get the free item and scan your Big Lots Big Rewards card during checkout. If you don’t have your card, you can also enter the phone number associated with your Big Lots account.
