Technically I never purchased anything full price at Bed, Bath, and Beyond before. I mean they have coupons ALL the time so why not take advantage of 20% off that new toaster that toasts breads, makes coffee, and walks the dog at the same time right?
Well, actually, I use the coupons more for beauty as the Bed, Bath, and Beyond store I go has a rather larger makeup section. I also happily use them at Harmons since they are both the same company.
I’ve always felt like Bed, Bath, and Beyond was a touch high for their kitchen gadgets and doodads. Typically if I need a new coffeemaker or a toaster, or anything home related I shop it on Amazon where I can get $20, $30, or more dollars less than Bed, Bath, and Beyond and yes, that’s factoring in the coupons the store provides. They seem awfully overpriced to me on some of the items they stock in stores.
So those fab coupons are saved and used up on a variety of makeup and beauty items I purchase at Harmons.
But I have seen people walking into Bed, Bath, and Beyond, load up a carriage, and proceed to check out while clutching 10 or more coupons in their hands. The fact of the matter is, the store is generous with coupons. For one thing they allow you to use expired coupons! For another, they let you combine as many coupons in one sale as you want. Got a toaster? Use a 20% Off coupon! Oh wait you have a super latte maker machine along with that toaster? Use another 20% off coupon for that!
We’ve been conditioned to not buy a damn thing at Bed, Bath, and Beyond at retail. Why should we when the brand so generously throws coupons our way.
Sadly, this might be the down fall for the company as many news channels have been reporting this week that profit margins are down due to those coupons with profits falling 10%, due, to what the company blames on “an order of magnitude increase”.
So into the New Year Bed, Bath, and Beyond 20% Coupons might see a scale down but let’s hope not!
