Anyone who’s ever attended a baby shower or had a baby is sure to know about buybuy Baby, the baby goods superstore alternative to Babies ‘R Us. If you aren’t quite convinced that buybuy Baby is the store for you, check out all these ways to save when shopping there — they just might change your mind.

1. Join the Mailing List

Submit your email to receive buybuy Baby newsletters with the most recent deals and offers. Plus, first-time subscribers immediately receive 20% off one single item in-store.

2. Explore Their Savings Center

The buybuy Baby savings center offers some pretty sweet deals — all you have to do is look. It’s definitely worth keeping an eye on this section from time to time to stock up on baby goods you might need now or in future.

3. Peruse the Clearance Options

Separate from the savings center, buybuy Baby also has a pretty extensive clearance section that’s worth checking out.

4. Get Organized

Never forget another coupon again when you use buybuy Baby’s “My Offers” organization system. Using your email address, My Offers organizes your print, email and text offers directly in the cloud so you have immediate access to them and can redeem them wherever and whenever.

5. Check for Rebates

From time to time, rebates might be offered on goods you purchase from buybuy Baby. The store makes it easy to redeem those offers by using their handy rebate center.

6. Ask for a Price Match

Be a smart shopper by doing a little research at buybuy Baby’s competitors. You can ask for a price match on identical items that meet their price match conditions. Price matches can be made in store, by phone or via email.

7. Ask for a Post-Purchase Price Match

Just because you already bought that high chair at buybuy Baby doesn’t mean you can’t get a discount on it if you find it somewhere else for a lower price. Buybuy Baby also allows you to request a price match after you make a purchase so keep that in mind when shopping.

8. Load up on Manufacturer’s Coupons

Buybuy Baby accepts manufacturer coupons at any time, even in conjunction with a price match. Remember, any coupon issued from a retailer or brand that also has retail stores is considered a competitor’s coupon, not a manufacturer’s coupon. In that case, buybuy Baby will only accept the coupon and the price match if the competitor would, as well.

9. Stock up on buybuy Baby Coupons

Check sites like Coupon Cabin, Retail Me Not and Groupon for buybuy Baby coupons.

10. Bring in Your Bed Bath & Beyond Coupons

Buybuy Baby will accept these as long as they aren’t expired.

11. Do More to Score Bed Bath & Beyond Coupons

Since they’re sister stores and buybuy Baby will accept Bed Bed & Beyond coupons, it’s wise to stock up on coupons from both stores. Check out this piece for ideas on how to score more Bed Bath & Beyond Coupons.

12. Don’t Pay for Shipping

Shipping is free on orders of $49 or more from the site, but if you don’t have that much to buy, you can always reserve your items online and then pick them up in the store. Your order will be ready within two business hours and held for two days. (A $1 authorization fee will appear on your card, but it will drop within 24 to 48 hours.)

13. Apply for the buybuy Baby Mastercard

Sign up for the buybuy Baby Mastercard and receive a special introductory offer of $25 off $100, plus earn 5% back in rewards for every $1 you spend at buybuy Baby, 2% back in rewards for every $1 you spend on gas and groceries and 1% back for every $1 you spend anywhere else Mastercard is accepted. You’ll also get a $10 reward certificate for every $10 you earn and pay no interest if your card is paid in full in six months on purchases between $250 and $500 or 12 months on purchases over $500. Your annual percentage rate for this card will be 24.49%, 18.49% or 14.49% based on your creditworthiness, so pay your card in full every time. (Not sure where your credit stands? You can check two of your scores free on Credit.com. Plus, check out these other credit cards perfect for preparing for a new baby.)

14. Use Your buybuy Baby Mastercard at Affiliate Stores

You’ll earn 5% back in rewards for every $1 you spend at affiliate stores including Bed Bath & Beyond, Christmas Tree Shops and That!, Cost Plus World Market and Harmon Face Values.

15. Shop More & Save More

If you’ve applied for the buybuy Baby Mastercard, it pays to use it for purchases outside of the store and its affiliates as much as possible. Besides the 1% back for every $1 you spend anywhere else Mastercard is accepted, you’ll earn a $25 gift certificate when you spend $1,000 in the first six months or a $75 gift certificate when you spend $6,000 in the first six months.

Hello, Reader!

Thanks for checking out Credit.com. We hope you find the site and the journalism we produce useful. We wanted to take some time to tell you a bit about ourselves.

Our People

The Credit.com editorial team is staffed by a team of editors and reporters, each with many years of financial reporting experience. We’ve worked for places like the New York Times, American Banker, Frontline, TheStreet.com, Business Insider, ABC News, NBC News, CNBC and many others. We also employ a few freelancers and more than 50 contributors (these are typically subject matter experts from the worlds of finance, academia, politics, business and elsewhere).

Our Reporting

We take great pains to ensure that the articles, video and graphics you see on Credit.com are thoroughly reported and fact-checked. Each story is read by two separate editors, and we adhere to the highest editorial standards. We’re not perfect, however, and if you see something that you think is wrong, please email us at editorial team [at] credit [dot] com,

The Credit.com editorial team is committed to providing our readers and viewers with sound, well-reported and understandable information designed to inform and empower. We won’t tell you what to do. We will, however, do our best to explain the consequences of various actions, thereby arming you with the information you need to make decisions that are in your best interests. We also write about things relating to money and finance we think are interesting and want to share.

In addition to appearing on Credit.com, our articles are syndicated to dozens of other news sites. We have more than 100 partners, including MSN, ABC News, CBS News, Yahoo, Marketwatch, Scripps, Money Magazine and many others. This network operates similarly to the Associated Press or Reuters, except we focus almost exclusively on issues relating to personal finance. These are not advertorial or paid placements, rather we provide these articles to our partners in most cases for free. These relationships create more awareness of Credit.com in general and they result in more traffic to us as well.

Our Business Model

Credit.com’s journalism is largely supported by an e-commerce business model. Rather than rely on revenue from display ad impressions, Credit.com maintains a financial marketplace separate from its editorial pages. When someone navigates to those pages, and applies for a credit card, for example, Credit.com will get paid what is essentially a finder’s fee if that person ends up getting the card. That doesn’t mean, however, that our editorial decisions are informed by the products available in our marketplace. The editorial team chooses what to write about and how to write about it independently of the decisions and priorities of the business side of the company. In fact, we maintain a strict and important firewall between the editorial and business departments. Our mission as journalists is to serve the reader, not the advertiser. In that sense, we are no different from any other news organization that is supported by ad revenue.

Visitors to Credit.com are also able to register for a free Credit.com account, which gives them access to a tool called The Credit Report Card. This tool provides users with two free credit scores and a breakdown of the information in their Experian credit report, updated twice monthly. Again, this tool is entirely free, and we mention that frequently in our articles, because we think that it’s a good thing for users to have access to data like this. Separate from its educational value, there is also a business angle to the Credit Report Card. Registered users can be matched with products and services for which they are most likely to qualify. In other words, if you register and you find that your credit is less than stellar, Credit.com won’t recommend a high-end platinum credit card that requires an excellent credit score You’d likely get rejected, and that’s no good for you or Credit.com. You’d be no closer to getting a product you need, there’d be a wasted inquiry on your credit report, and Credit.com wouldn’t get paid. These are essentially what are commonly referred to as "targeted ads" in the world of the Internet. Despite all of this, however, even if you never apply for any product, the Credit Report Card will remain free, and none of this will impact how the editorial team reports on credit and credit scores.



Your Stories

Lastly, much of what we do is informed by our own experiences as well as the experiences of our readers. We want to tell your stories if you’re interested in sharing them. Please email us at story ideas [at] credit [dot] com with ideas or visit us on Facebook or Twitter.

Thanks for stopping by.
