I joined a membership warehouse back in the late 80s…before I got married. I didn’t join Costco or Sam’s or BJ’s. I joined Pace Membership Warehouse at the Laurel, MD, location. Same membership card with excellent savings. Same warehouse with long aisles and cavernous ceilings. The only difference is that back then most members owned restaurants or catering businesses. It was impossible to buy a jar of mustard. You had to buy a plastic keg of mustard. In fact, all the products were so huge that there were no shopping carts, only flat-bed carts usually overflowing with cases of water, giant cans of beans, and of course, mustard kegs.
Shopping at warehouses is a different experience 20 years later. BJ´s Wholesale Club is a one-stop shop that offers great savings (more than 30% over supermarkets) on the highest quality items, carries family-friendly supermarket sizes and accepts all manufacturers´ coupons.
Right now, BJ´s is offering a 60-day FREE Trial Membership that can be used at any BJ´s club. For two months, you can enjoy great deals on top national brands and general merchandise. If you decide that you want to continue to save money on great products for longer than the trial period, ask an associate at the club about how to take advantage of the special new-member *paid offer for $45, which includes a $10 coupons and an extra two months of membership. If you sign up for the offer, you also will receive:
- A Member Savings Book with more than $1,000 in coupons and instant rebates
- “Sign up and Save” coupons worth $117 in savings
- 2 cards (one for you and someone else in your household)
- A no risk 100% money back guarantee on the fee if you are not satisfied
*Paid offer can vary by Club.
