Many stores have made grocery shopping easier and, in many cases, safer for their customers by offering curbside pickups. Curbside Pickup is a service that allows you to shop online and place your order outside the store without leaving your car.
You can place a curbside pick-up order using BJ’s website or app. However, you must have a subscription to place an order. Digital coupons and instant savings automatically apply to curbside pickup orders, but BJ does not accept printed coupons for online orders.
It’s easy to order with BJ’s Curbside Pickup, but must be ready at the store. In this article, we’ll cover what you need to know to get the most out of BJ’s Curb Side Pickup option!
How Does BJ’s Curbside Pickup Work?
To use Curbside Pickup in BJ, order “Free Pickup Today” using BJ’s website or app. The Curbside Pickup feature is a free service that is available to members at any BJ location. However, the selected store must have a stock of your items in order to fulfill your curbside pickup order.
To use BJ’s free curbside pickup option, you need to shop online through BJ’s website or mobile app. There are no minimum pickups, so you can order as many or as few items as you like.
If you haven’t already, be sure to download BJ’s mobile app to place your curbside order before leaving your home. This is important because once you arrive at your designated free pick-up location outside the store, you will be able to check-in using the mobile app.
Checking in through the mobile app lets BJ’s store mates know you’ve arrived and you’re ready to place your curbside order.
When you arrive to pick up your curbside order, park at one of the designated pick-up areas outside the store. Then, sign in to the BJ app, select In-Club, Pickup Check-In, and then tap Curbside Pickup.
Enter the brand and color of your car in BJ’s mobile app so that a clerk can find your car. Finally, open your trunk so that the BJ employee can load your order into your car, without contact!

For example, if both you and your roommate share a BJ membership and your roommate is a household member, they can drive to the location of your chosen BJ to receive your order.
BJ customers with Inner Circle membership or BJ’s Prix Rewards primary membership can add a household member to their membership plan free of charge.
Household members will receive their membership cards and will be able to receive curbside orders for their family members. It is important to note that household members must bring a valid photo ID and their membership card to BJ to place an order.
