3. Some extreme coupon forums recommended renting a PO Box just to get them at more than one address.

Which might explain who is selling those coupons on eBay.


4. There are now a billion* ways to get the famed 20% off one item coupons: email, snail mail, inside newspapers or print magazines, Facebook sign-ups and even by text message.

5. But the holy grail 20% off your entire purchase coupons are a lot harder to come by.

The store doesn't disclose how they select customers to receive this coupon, but according to, the selection is random and the coupon usually comes via snail mail or when you move to a new address.

7. The online and mobile version of the coupons DO actually expire.


Those emailed codes and shopping portals don't work past the listed date. But if you're on the list to get emailed or text-message coupons, they usually send a new one as soon as your old one has expired.


8. If you somehow still don't have a coupon, leaving an item in your online cart can help.

You might get an email with a special coupon to change your mind on your abandoned item. Just make sure you're signed in with your email address when browsing.

10. You actually can't use any coupons or discounts on a lot of major brands.


Other brands listed as exclusions in the fine print include: Arthur Court, Bugaboo, Bumbleride, Clek, Coravin, CYBEX, DaVinci, Fitbit, Foundations, Franklin & Ben, Inglesina, Kenneth Cole Reaction Home, Kosta Boda, Lladró, Maxi-Cosi, Miele, Monique Lhuillier, Orrefors, Peg Pérego, Roomba 800 & 900 Series Vacuums, Shun, Southern Tide, Star Wars BB8 by Sphero, Stokke, Storksak, Svan, Swarovski, Swash, Under Armour, Bosch Stand Mixers, George Kovacs, iComfort, iSeries, and more.


12. But the store does accept competitor and manufacturer coupons.

So if one of the brands or products you see excluded has a coupon from another store or a lower listed price, they should match that price according to their "Price Match Guarantee."

This also counts for lower rates at online retailers like Amazon (but not third-party sellers) as long as the products are identical.

13. You can use these coupons at all Bed Bath & Beyond company stores, which includes World Market...

A specialty/import retailer that sells furniture, home decor, international food products, and alcoholic beverages.
