I know there are a lot of Costco fans out there and over the past year I have become one of them….BUT I have been a BJ’s fan for years and I still think its better than Costco in a lot of ways:
- BJ’s takes manufacture coupons AND BJ’s coupons.
- They release an extensive coupon book every month and they also have weekly coupon books when you walk in the door.
- BJ’s carries a ton of organic name brand items.
- Prices are lower than Costco and they have a lot of sales.
- They have a fresh deli counter.
- They always have toys and kid items, not seasonal like Costco.
That’s just a few highlights of why I like it better, but I think a lot of it comes down to personal preference and how close the store is to you. They are both great stores to shop at and I enjoy having a membership to both.
If you have been wanting to try BJ’s, but didn’t want to pay the full membership price, you can now get a year membership for $25 through Groupon! Hurry, this deal is ending soon!!
