BJ's Wholesale Club announced on March 30 that they will not be accepting paper coupons during the COVID-19 pandemic for safety reasons.

The company indicated in a statement, "As part of our efforts to do everything we can to safely serve Members’ needs, we have made the decision to temporarily suspend the use of paper coupons in our clubs in order to reduce touchpoints and help mitigate the spread of coronavirus. For the safety of Members and our Team Members, until further notice our clubs will not be accepting any paper coupons beginning on March 30, 2020."

BJ’s is still offering the coupons from the BJ’s Savings Book in a clipless version. They will be automatically deducted from the price at check out. "Savings will be visible on the price signs in our clubs and in online carts on BJs.com. In the future, a new style of the BJ’s Savings Book will showcase the clipless coupon offers currently available," according to their website.

In addition, customers can find manufacturer-published digital coupons on the BJ’s mobile app and on BJs.com.

At this time, no other grocery chains have announced similar restrictions regarding paper coupons, but that could change at any time.

See the BJ's website for all the details.
