July 17, 2018 - Furnishing your Dorm Room

Each summer thousands of students pack up the family mini-van and head off to college. But what if you don't have a big car, or are flying to college, how do you get all those dorm supplies to your new school?  Enter Bed Bath and Beyond's Pack and Hold program. This ingenious program lets you shop at your home store and then pick up your items at the store closest to your school. No shoving comforters and microwaves into the back seat.

Here's how it works- Take your dorm list to your local store, go to the registry department and get a scanner.  Then scan all the items you wish to add to your list.  When done, the list is sent to the store closest to your school and you provide a pick-up date.  Upon picking up the items, they are boxed and ready to go for you. No need to go up and down the aisles.  The nice thing is you can shop early while the selection is greatest and get what you want because they box up your items as soon as you submit your registry.  The other bonus is, if you change your mind, just take the item out of the box.  You only pay for items once you have decided what you want to truly keep.

In addition to the above program – BB&B has added another convenience.  You no longer need to clip coupons all summer and bring to the cashier. With their College Savings Pass Program, the student signs up with their .edu email and enjoys 20% off their entire order (with free shipping) from now until December 2019!  So, if they buy now and forget something, no worries, they can get it later and still get $20% off!

While we are not endorsing Bed Bath and Beyond for your purchases, their program is a great resource for college bound students.
