What is the value of an expired coupon?
Not at Bed Bath & Beyond.
I collect the blue and white coupons that appear every week in the mail or newspaper. There’s no need to check them for expiration dates. Just scoop up a few 20% coupons and $5.00 off coupons before going out the door and you can save quite a bit of money.
A few years ago, a friend told me how to use Bed Bath & Beyond coupons. The store doesn’t check the coupons for expiration dates and the customer can use as many coupons as they like. I didn’t believe him and I was surprised to find out it was true.
I believe the company has an expired coupon policy but I haven’t seen them enforce it. The company knows the coupons are driving traffic to their stores. I’ll enjoy it while it lasts.
I use coupons and discounts whenever I can. Especially when buying Keurig K-cups, Yankee candles and other household items I wouldn’t buy if I had to pay full price for them.
I take extra coupons with me to the store as there will usually be a coupon-less customer ahead of me or behind me looking longingly at my stack of coupons. I have more coupons than anyone should ever need so I’m happy to fan out my coupons like playing cards and tell my fellow shopper to take a coupon or two or three of them. I’ve heard that this charitable act plays out every day at Bed Bath & Beyond stores around the country. It cost me nothing – but a savings of 20% on a big ticket item is a nice gift to receive from a stranger. The smile and friendliness I receive from another customer just for giving away a coupon is more than worth the effort. It makes me smile too.
