Since the first Coca-Cola coupon was clipped in 1886, coupons have been on the rise and each September, National Coupon Month is celebrated by savvy shoppers all over the country. Once a hobby for budget-friendly shoppers, coupon clipping is now a way of life. According to IloveCouponMonth.com, the average family can save between $500-$1,000 a year by incorporating coupons into their everyday purchases. Spending one hour a week couponing is worth an estimated $100 with the average savings per coupon at $1.44.
BJ’s — the only warehouse club to accept manufacturer’s coupons on top of their own — provides a video and tips to further maximize coupon savings.

· When purchasing a multi-pack of items at BJ’s, which is a set of items that could be sold individually (each item has a barcode) shrink-wrapped and sold together, shoppers can combine one BJ’s-issued coupon with manufacturers’ coupons. However, you cannot exceed the actual retail price in the total value of coupons. Examples of a multipack include a three-pack of toothpaste, two-pack of salad dressing or a three-pack of taco kits.
· Members may also use one BJ’s coupon and one manufacturer’s coupon on a single item.
· In terms of manufacturer’s coupons that are ‘buy one, get one free’ BJ’s will honor the coupon for items in stock as long as BJ’s price does not exceed the maximum value stated on the coupon. If the manufacturer’s coupon does not state the maximum value then BJ’s cannot honor the coupon.
The event will be taking place at the following BJ’s locations in Ohio:
