BJ’s Free Membership Offers

BJ’s has several membership options, with the lowest annual membership starting at $55 a year (The Club Card Membership, formerly called Inner Circle Membership) and the highest annual membership costing $110 a year (The Club+ Card Membership, formerly called Perks Rewards Membership).

While some may find it crazy to pay a fee for the right to shop, there are reasons why 5.5 million people are BJ members. For example:

  • Grocery prices are 25% lower than grocery stores (and BJs also accepts manufacturer coupons)
  • Low gas prices at club pumps via BJ’s Gas Savings Program with special offers that reduce gas prices up to another 30¢ per gallon

So if you want to test out what the hype is about, why not get a free membership or day-pass and try it out? Below are all the ways you can get free access to BJ’s Wholesale Club!

BJ’s 3-Month Free Trial Membership

BJ’s 3-Month Free Trial membership allows you to experience the full benefits of a Member. This offer works for new members only and you can only get one of these trial memberships per household.

Simply enroll via the link above and then come to a BJ’s store to show a photo ID at a member services desk in order to get your member card. No payment is required and the whole club won’t automatically renew your membership when it expires.

Ninja Update: BJ’s Wholesale Club has ended the 3-month free trial offer. I’ll update this post when it becomes available again. Scroll down for other BJ’s offers.

American Express: Spend $55 and Get $30 Back on BJ’s Membership

American Express cardholders can get $30 back when they spend $55 or more on a BJ’s Membership with Amex Offers.

Amex Offers is a program designed to offer cardholders exclusive deals and discounts when they shop at participating businesses. These offers are associated with specific American Express cards and automatically provide statement credits when the card is used to make eligible purchases.

One of the best aspects of Amex Offers is that you can stack them with other deals. For instance, you can purchase an annual membership of The Club+ Card using this deal to get it for $70. Then, if you use an American Express card that also features this Amex offer, you can receive an additional $30 back.

Your out-of-pocket cost is only $40 for a membership valued at $110!

The Bottom Line

My parents shopped at BJ’s when I was a kid. They loved the savings. There are so many everyday items you can save money on, especially if you buy them in bulk.

The place kept kids busy too while the parents shopped – I have very fond memories there. Our local store had a Sega Genesis set up for children and I remembered playing Altered Beast for hours with my brother… I may have aged myself 🙂

Now as an adult, I split my time between BJ’s and their other warehouse club competitors – Costco and Sam’s Club. BJ’s has a slight edge on the other two clubs because they’re the only club that allows manufacturer coupons.

Other free membership deals you may be interested in are Amazon Prime and Walmart+.

Thank you. This is a great deal. I already had the first $10 deposited into my account, about 3 days after my enrollment. I would never have signed up for BJ but for this post. It is a great opportunity (money-making). Don’t miss it! (I am not affiliated with themoneyninja, nor with BJ. This is just personal feedback.)
