2018 is to be the great year that The Bowmans take on BJ’s Wholesale Club!

It was inevitable because I have loved this store since I was a kid, when a location opened up in New Jersey near my house. As a family of seven, BJ’s Wholesale Club was our best friend. We all had our favorite products and our parents bought the products we needed for such a big family – that would last us between shopping trips. I remember it being fun, and it was always an honor to accompany my dad on his shopping trips. Now as an adult, I was ecstatic to learn that we live smack in the middle of two gorgeous locations. As a parent and a pet parent too, I was delighted to learn recently that BJ’s Wholesale Club is a one-stop shopping destination for families, and also to give pets the very best. My pets are a big part of our family.

I like to go to BJ’s on a mellow weekend day, especially for all the yummy samples! Over time, I’ve discovered a lot of fun reasons to belong to BJ’s. Here are 3 BIG reasons we decided to get a BJ’s membership this year, and surely beyond!

1 – BJ’s provides great value. Did you know that families can save up to $500 a year by shopping there? BJ’s is committed to offering the best value of any supermarket or club, and it shows! BJ’s members save 25% off grocery store prices every day, and they’re the only membership warehouse club to accept manufacturer’s coupons. And since I’m a real friend, and real friends share savings, I’m sharing my awesome refer-a-friend link for you to join BJ’s today and earn a $25 gift card! If you refer your friends to BJ’s by visiting BJs.com/bestie, you’ll both receive a $25 BJ’s Gift Card when your friend joins.

And if you join BJ’s, your membership is filled with added convenience – like in-Club shopping, BJs.com, and BJ’s mobile app. With this, members can digitally select and save coupons to their membership card with BJ’s Add-to-Card feature on BJs.com and the BJ’s mobile app. And, you can save time and money by filling up your gas tanks at BJ’s Gas® with gas prices among the lowest around. That kind of value is unmatched, but also, the experience is more than that. That brings me to:

2 – BJ’s is fun and participatory. Whether it’s the car-themed shopping carts or the samples that are on weekends AND on weekdays, I love seeing all the smiling faces. You can enjoy the samples, get an eye exam, and talk to every employee and you’ve just had a great use of your time! Des really loves to go with me, and often we go as a family. We all four love it!

3 – When I say one-stop shopping for the WHOLE family, that includes pets! This is a big one! Our dog, Athena, and our cat, Juniper, are important members of our family and that’s why we’re thrilled that BJ’s offers a wide assortment of food and accessories for your pets – at an unbeatable value! Here are just a few things we rely on for our pets that we have found:

Berkley Jensen Medium Dog Biscuits, 6.6 lbs – These are gravy coated dog biscuits clean teeth and help reduce tartar. BJ’s has wet and dry pet food, as well as treats that support dental health. They also have specialty foods that cater to weight management or complete nutrition.

Berkley Jensen 38″ Tufted Round Pet Bed – Athena loves this 38″ round bed. It’s tufted for extra comfort and it’s reversible with warm/cool fabrics. Her bed is also machine washable for easy cleaning, and it’s treated with MaxGuard to reduce odor and bacterial growth. 

Berkley Jensen Seafood Lover’s Classic Variety Pack for Cats, 36 ct. – It starts with the very best cuts of fresh cod, salmon or ocean whitefish as the first ingredient to provide the key proteins and amino acids that Juniper needs to thrive.

There’s so much more to love! Why do we go? It’s because they offer a large selection of leading national brands and specialty pet food brands that cater to your pets’ needs without breaking your budget! We love BJ’s exclusive Berkley Jensen brand. And along with all these great products, BJ’s helps protect our pets from fleas and ticks. They offer flea and tick solutions like PetAction® Plus to help protect pets at an incredible price. And BJ’s helps us prepare our pets for outdoor weight with a wide selection of pet health and grooming products. Even though Juniper is an indoors cat, Athena goes outside and puts Juniper at risk for fleas and ticks. Together with BJ’s, we’re keeping our pets happy and healthy.

  1. I had a Costco membership in the past and never renewed it. But recently got a postcard to try BJ’s for free for a trial period. After reading this, I may just have to do just that now!! 😉

  2. I don’t have a BJs nearby 🙁 I am near a Costco and do love it. There are certain things that are just easier to buy in bulk and I think stores like BJs definitely meet a need!

  3. I’ve got me a Costco Membership but since getting it I think we have gone…. TWICE. LOL!!! Yeah, we don’t really cook at home much, not enough to buy food in BULK so… It’s slightly pointless to go there for that… I think we just got it so we had the OPTION of buying all the RANDOM SHIT in the aisles … And having the ability to say LETS GO TO COSTCO on one of those days where we have no plans but also don’t wanna sit around the house! LMFAO

  4. I have never heard of BJ’s but I love Costco. Maybe they are called that on the westside? I have my list of staples to buy and always find other great deals. Enjoy your shopping!

  5. I’m thinking that I’ll have to become a BJ’s member when I move south. They tell me the closest Costco is more than 40 minutes away. Just today I drove by the nearest BJ’s and said to myself that I need to be intentional about getting a card. This post is a push in the right direction!
