*Expired* Take expired coupons to BB&B and L’NT

by Freebies4Mom on March 22, 2008 5:08 pm

I’m writing this post because I needed to buy a new belgian waffle maker and because Megan has put together a great summary of tips for shopping at Bed, Bath & Beyond and Linens ‘n Things. I made a rare trip to Bed, Bath & Beyond today in search of a new waffle maker to replace the one that my mom gave me that certainly came from a garage sale – it was a great belgian waffle maker but has lost all of it’s non-stick properties. Since I use it once a week for Friday Night Waffles, I could justify spending some dough on it so my dough would stop sticking to it. On my shopping trip to Bed, Bath & Beyond I took with me EXPIRED 20% off coupons, just to really test them because that’s part of my job – to test the coupon policies.

I am happy to report that I came home with a beautiful Krups Belgian Waffle Maker. And that I saved 20% on all three items I purchased. I learned that you should NEVER go shopping at Bed, Bath & Beyond without your coupons because you can use one coupon per item. So save and use those 20% coupons (just ignore the expiration dates) and if you buy any items priced between $15 and $25 use the “Save $5 on $15 purchase” coupon for a better deal. I’ve used expired coupons at Linens ‘n Things before too, but they like them to have expiration dates within the last 2 years. You can sign-up to get coupons via email and mail here for B,B&B; and here for L’NT. Thanks to Megan at Megan’s Bargains and More for helping me make my shopping trip a successful one with expired coupons in-hand! And I made the day of two shoppers on my way out the door because I handed them two extra coupons that I didn’t need for my purchase – just call me the Coupon Fairy.

BB&B; no longer accepts expired coupons as of Jan 2009, robably due to the demise of their major competition (i.e. Linens & Things). They ppear to be enforcing it too. Sad sad sad

Also, you can use up to 7 BBB coupons in one transaction….

Sherry just sent me this comment via email: “Just thought you might like to know what I learned recently about Bed, Bath, and Beyond: They also meet competitors’ prices, and if you will produce proof of such prices (a sale paper from a competitor with the exact same item at a lower price), then hand them your coupon AFTER they ring up the competitor’s price, they will honor the coupon (even an expired one) on top of the lower price!! How much better can it get?!!”

Thanks for the tip, The Bargain Shopper Lady! I recently started a file to keep my coupons in since they are good for so long! When I go to either of these stores, I take all of my coupons (hey, you never know what I’ll find on clearance!). But it’s nice to get those 20% off entire purchase coupons because then you only need to have one coupon on you.

There is one time a year during Christmas where BBW has a 20% off your entire purchase coupon. Those are worth saving up for all year long! They take them!

Thanks for the tip, Chrissy! Great to know they provide such excellent customer service, even if you forget your coupon!

If you ever forget your coupon, you can also buy something and on your next trip, take the coupon with you and they will give you cashback on the difference. I believe you have 30 days to do this.BBB makes shopping there so easy, even if some of their items are highly priced!y

You’re welcome, Pregnantly Plump! BB&B; doesn’t care what the expiration date is. L’NT wants the expiration date to be less than 2 years old. Makes me ask – so, what’s the purpose of the expiration date? Trick people into coming into the store before the coupon “expires”?

I didn’t know that you could use expired coupons at those stores! That is so great to know, thanks for the tip!

I’m glad you learned something new, Julie! I bought the Krups Belgian Waffle Maker, have only used it once but love it – makes a large square waffle – really 4 waffles and is easy to store. It’s also cool to learn that you can use the coupons on clearance merchandise – I haven’t tried this yet but will keep it in mind because these stores have some great clearance buys.

Thanks for the tip! I didn’t know you could use one coupon per item and I didn’t know they let you use expired coupons!!! I’ve just been throwing them away! I could use a new waffle maker, too…hmmmm…

Thanks, Aardvark! I usually have plenty of coupons for both stores, so have never needed to try this – but you are right that both stores say they accept competitor’s coupons!

BB&B; will also take the LnT coupons!
