How Stupid Does Bed Bath & Beyond Think We Are?

How Stupid Does Bed Bath & Beyond Think We Are?

“How dumb does Bed Bath & Beyond think we are?” writes reader Kristina. Well…maybe they’re just working from assumptions about the average American consumer’s math skills. This coupon offers $25 off a $125 purchase, which is great if and only if you want to spend exactly $125 at the store. [More]

Bed Bath And Beyond’s Tricky Nautica Promo E-Mail

Bed Bath And Beyond’s Tricky Nautica Promo E-Mail


In a recent mailing that they sent out to customers, Bed, Bath and Beyond promoted two things. They’re pushing Nautica-brand bedding sets, and also their ever-present 20% off one item coupons. The catch, of course, is that you can’t use the coupon on any of the Nautica items. [More]

Bed, Bath And Beyond Display Bursts Into Flames, Caught On Camera By Customer

Imagine that you’re shopping at Bed Bath and Beyond, and you see a bedding display on fire. Would you whip out your mobile phone and walk toward the flames to take a video, or turn around and run the hell away? We prefer when our readers stay alive, so we recommend the second option. One California shopper chose differently, which is why we have this disturbing video. [More]

Bed Bath And Beyond’s Towers Of Towels Are A Beautifully Folded Lie

Bed Bath And Beyond’s Towers Of Towels Are A Beautifully Folded Lie

If you’ve been to a Bed, Bath and Beyond store, you’ve seen them: the shelves and shelves of perfectly folded towels, stacked up to the ceiling. They look nice, and that’s an awful lot of towels, isn’t it? No. It isn’t. Photos exposing the towel towers as the shams they are frequently make the rounds on social media sites, blowing everyone’s minds. [More]

Bed Bath And Beyond Applies Coupon After The Fact, Alerts Me To Rebate

Where there is a mattress and there are small children, it is inevitable that the children will try to jump on the mattress. At least, that’s what happened when Kurt rolled out the air mattress for some out-of-town guests. He ran to Bed, Bath and Beyond to get a new one, but couldn’t find a precious 20% off coupon in time. When he returned to the store, he decided to be honest rather than buying another mattress and “returning” it using the receipt from the first purchase. His honesty paid off. [More]

What’s The Point Of A Salad Spinner That Can’t Spin?

What’s The Point Of A Salad Spinner That Can’t Spin?

While shopping at Bed, Bath and Beyond, Avi noticed an OXO salad spinner on the “as-is” clearance rack. Those are great products, so he investigated further. The $29.99 item was marked down to half off, $14.98, and then to half off that amount, $7.48. What a deal! There was, however, a catch. The spinning mechanism is broken. That makes it more of a colander with a weird lid. [More]

13-Year-Old Left In Parked Car Goes On Destructive Rampage, Parks On Top Of Another Car

13-Year-Old Left In Parked Car Goes On Destructive Rampage, Parks On Top Of Another Car

Just about everyone has done it: leave kids in the car, even for just a minute or two, with the keys still in the ignition so the air conditioning, heat, or radio can keep running. For people without kids, surely your own parents left you in the car with the keys at some point. Or maybe they never did, fearing that something would go terribly wrong. Like when a Michigan teen with the keys to her grandmother’s car launched a one-girl demolition derby in the parking lot of a Bed, Bath, and Beyond. She hit a utility pole and a few parked cars before eventually nestling the vehicle sideways between two other parked cars. [More]

Radioactive Tissue Boxes Removed From Bed, Bath & Beyond Shelves – No, Really

When shipments bound for California Bed, Bath and Beyond stores set off radiation sensors at a truck scale, Bed, Bath and Beyond discovered that it had been stocking tissue-box covers mysteriously contaminated with low levels of cobalt-60. The radiation level isn’t enough to cause real harm to humans–the equivalent of a few chest x-rays over the course of a year if you happened to keep them in your bathroom. [More]

Recall Roundup: Extra Scary Edition

Recall Roundup: Extra Scary Edition

It’s Halloween, and what’s scarier than exploding DVD player batteries and killer flatware? Or dairy lurking in an innocent-looking tortilla? What about a zombie ATV that accelerates on its own?

Got some old Linens ‘N Things coupons? Don’t throw them away. Bed Bath & Beyond will take them until the end of the month. [ShopSmart]

Appalled by the events described in, “Bed, Bath & Beyond Will Not Let You Use The Phone To Call 911,” one reader sent a chastising email to their public relations division. In particular, he took aim at their statement that they were using it as a “training opportunity,” which sounds pretty antiseptic and corporate considering that a child’s life could have been in danger. Their VP of customer service responded. Their correspondence follows.

Check Your Own Receipt Before You Leave The Store

Check Your Own Receipt Before You Leave The Store

Although stores often claim they employ receipt checkers to make sure you got everything you paid for, you still might get ripped off. This past weekend, three stores tried to sell us items that did not match their price tag or description. Each time, we politely pointed out the difference to a manager, and each time, we were rewarded for doing so, either with a reduced price or a better item than the original one we wanted. Let us tell you about our exciting weekend, inside.

JetBlue To Charge $7 For Pillow-Blanket Kit

JetBlue To Charge $7 For Pillow-Blanket Kit

JetBlue is launching a new fee, $7 for a pillow and an allergen-rebuffing blanket. It comes with a $5 coupon to Bed Bath and Beyond. It’s all part of what JetBlue describes as a “basket of fee changes” which they project will rake in an additional $50 million this year. I guess that’s someone’s idea of targeted marketing. “Guys, we need to figure out a way to hone in on this lucrative “buys blankets” crowd…”
