I’m a very happy member of BJ’s Wholesale Club. I can be found there every week or so days buying cold cuts, milk, bread, water and whatever else strikes my fancy. When I learned that there was a membership called BJ’s Rewards that would let my shopping to make me money, I was interested in learning more.


You can upgrade to a BJ’s Rewards Membership for just $40 annually (or much less*, based on when your current Membership expires).

And it’s easy to earn your fee back and more. If you spend just $200 each month on groceries alone, your 2% Payback** will more than pay for your upgrade. Maximize your Payback with other online and in-Club purchases — like TVs, computers, jewelry and tires. It adds up faster than you think.

Enjoy shopping that pays. Upgrade today!

BJ’s Rewards membership benefits include

  • 2% Payback** on most purchases in-Club and all purchases on
  • A Rewards Payback twice a year to spend at BJ’s.
  • $20 off a complete pair of eyeglasses.†
  • Free Personal Vehicle Shopper†† with BJ’s Auto Buying Program®.
  • $50 on-board spending with purchase of a 7-night cruise‡ from BJ’s Travel®.
  • Free Organizer Package‡‡ with purchase of a Quality Outdoor Structures shed — $189 value.


As mentioned, I’m in BJ’s once each week or so. Why? Number one reason is because they have a deli with great pricing. It’s also because they carry a number of food and grocery items that we regularly buy at prices that are better then the grocery store. Plus they let you use manufacturer’s coupons, as well as their own store coupons. I spend anywhere from $25 to $100, depending on what I’m buying and if I’m stocking the freezer. Generally it’s a good bet that I don’t spend under $50. So let’s say I spend $50 per week at BJ’s. $50 times 45 weeks (let’s say I took a couple of weeks off) comes to $2250. So that’s an estimated $2250 spent in one year. With a BJ’s Rewards membership I’d get back $45. But et’s not forget that BJ’s carries way more than just food. They have a tire center, where I purchased two tires this year. They have an optical center, where my Mom bought me glasses a while back. They also carry paper goods, cleaning products, small appliances, computers, jewelry, clothes, electronics, pet products, books, games, movies and much more. So add in what I spend on the non-food items and I’ve spent even more at BJ’s, increasing the amount of money I get back. I look at it this way. I can guarantee that I spend enough to cover the cost of the upgrade. Any money I get back after that is found money, making having a BJ’s Rewards membersip a win-win situation.

I had a similar plan at another wholesale warehouse. It works IF you spend enough. I just don’t.

Both of the other big club stores offer a bigger membership with more perks. I have one at one club. I spend enough each year there that it takes care of my membership fees each year, and that is a plus.
