Brace yourselves. I bet you didn’t know this…all those 20% off coupons you get in the mail regularly from Bed Bath and Beyond are more valuable than you think. How about using that BBB coupon to take 20% off a Maclaren stroller, or a new baby crib, or anything else at Babies R Us?
I know what you’re thinking…why would BRU accept BBB coupons right? Well start spreading the news…they do! A friend of mine witnessed this recently at a BRU store in New Jersey. According to the cashier, BRU (wisely) doesn’t publicize the fact that they take competitor coupons. So how are these 2 stores related? They’re not. However, Bed Bath and Beyond owns/partners with Buy Buy Baby. In fact, I just checked the Buy Buy Baby corporate page and confirmed the 2 are related. Wow! I wish I knew this when I had to buy all my baby gear. My daughter is now 2.5 and we’ve already spent a fortune at Babies R Us. I hope this post helps some of you save lots of money. Let me know in the comments section.
Update 1: I’ve emailed Toys R Us support about this and the front line support folks have not denied this yet. They have escalated higher in the chain for confirmation. I’ll post the news as soon as I hear back.
Update 2: Response back from R Us:
