    "I know you can use in-store coupons and manufacturer's coupons at BJs. Can you stack one of each on a specific item? Thanks"

    I wanted to ad to the response...
    I had the CSM clarify this for me @ BJs: You can stack 1 Manu Q with a BJs Q OR you can use mutliple Manu coupons if the items that are sold in multiples can be broken down and sold individually. Ex. A bundle of OM Bacon comes 3 packages of bacon to a pack. If I had 3 .50 off/1 coupons, I could use all three of them for that purchase. I could NOT use a BJs coupon as well. Hope this helps!

    Chipper - that is such a sweet story! You are so kind. That is a fantastic example to set for your boys. Thanks for sharing.

    couponmom - it is in their policy that they take competitors coupons for total off your total order. Ask for a a manager next time. The cashier was wrong. You shoudl print out the policy and keep it with you for times like this.


    From their policy:

    "Competitor's Coupons

    * We gladly accept local competitors’ manufacturer coupons. We also redeem circular or direct-mail coupons for money off of the total order.
    * We do not accept any internet coupons from other retailers."

    Chipper - you rock. That was so sweet of you and to offer to help in the future was impressive. Thanks.

    I didn't necessarily save any money with coupons but Aldi's has fresh bagged apinach for .69 this week. I thought this was definately a DEAL worth sharing!

    I always tell my boys that we are frugal and giving. An elderly man asked me where something was in the store last week. I happened to have a couple of coupons for a few of the things that he had in his basket. After I handed them to him, he gave me a hug and I just about cried. He said his wife was unable to do the shopping and he was lost in the store. I told him that I come to the store every Sat at the same time and I would be glad to help him. He was so grateful and it made my day.
