When you sign up for a Buy Buy Baby account, you’ll be automatically enrolled in My Offers.

Use Bed Bath & Beyond Coupons In-Store

You know those mythical 20% off coupons from Bed Bath & Beyond that never expire? Lucky for you, Bed Bath & Beyond and Buy Buy Baby are sister companies, so you can use those forever-coupons at your favorite baby megastore. It’s worth noting that this deal does only work in-store though, not online. (Also keep in mind that per Buy Buy Baby guidelines, the 20% off coupons can't be used on diapers, wipes, formula, baby food, or baby furniture.)

Put Yourself On The Mailing List

You can sign up for the Buy Buy Baby mailing list to get 20% off coupons delivered to your home mailbox and your email inbox on a regular basis. Bonus fact? If you're on the Bed Bath & Beyond mailing list, you'll get double the coupons to use in-store.

Use The Buy Buy Baby Registry

Signing up for the Buy Buy Baby baby registry is one of the best things you can do for you and your baby. When you're getting close to your due date, Buy Buy Baby gives you a completion discount, where you can purchase anything and everything on your baby registry that you didn't receive at a 15% discount to use without restrictions.

You also get a free goodie bag filled with samples and coupons when you sign up. So, even if you don’t actually use the registry, it’s worth signing up just for the free swag.

5

Refer Your Friends

Refer a friend to create their baby registry at Buy Buy Baby and once they're all signed up, you get a $25 off coupon of any in-store purchase of $100 or more. When you’re shopping for big-ticket items, this type of discount will come in super handy.

A few genius moms over at The Bump figured out that Buy Buy Baby will let you adjust your due date on your registry, which means after your baby shower's over, you can change your due date, and get your registry completion discount even earlier. The Buy Buy Baby website confirms that to change your registry information, simply login to your registry online, call, or visit the store to make the change. This is perfect if you want to make sure you have everything before baby comes along.

Check Out Groupon For Coupons

If you stalk the savings page on Buy Buy Baby's website religiously, you'll be thrilled to know that it's not the only place on the web with coupons for all of your needs.

Know What’s Excluded From The Coupons

There are some items and brands that aren't included in Buy Buy Baby's coupons. Know what they are before you go, so that you're not planning on saving 20% off of something that you have to end up paying full price for. (But remember, if it's part of your registry completion deal, you'll get 15% off, no matter the item or brand.)

10

Utilize The Price Match Guarantee

Before you buy, be sure to check out the Buy Buy Baby price match guarantee. The store offers a price match promise on any identical item offered by a direct competitor (excluding clearance and closeout items). And I know, direct competitor seems like it might hinder your price match savings, but did you know that Buy Buy Baby considers Amazon a direct competitor? That makes your hunt for the best prices on baby gear a whole lot easier.

11

Take Advantage Of Pick-Up & Delivery Options

Buy Buy Baby offers several options for pick-up and delivery that are incredible for new parents. With contactless curbside pick-up, you and your napping infant can stay safely inside the car while an employee will bring your order out to you. Better yet, Buy Buy Baby offers a same-day delivery option for in-stock items at your local store for $9.99.
