Posted

(BPT) - Whether you’re planning a quick weekend getaway or an amazing fall adventure, you know that every aspect of your journey could put a serious dent in your wallet these days. Fortunately, there are a number of steps you can take to help make your trip less costly — as well as safer and more convenient.

As a member of BJ’s Wholesale Club, you'll be able to enjoy exclusive benefits that can help you with a variety of aspects of your next vacation, such as gas to fuel your road trip, the best tires for your car or special travel deals, wherever you're headed.

Here’s how the benefits can help you enjoy your next vacation even more.

1. Less pain at the pump and more fun on the road

There’s nothing like an epic road trip to bring the family together and create amazing memories that will last a lifetime. But today's gas prices could make your trip a lot less fun. What can you do about it?

If you’re a BJ’s Wholesale Club member, quite a lot. BJ’s Fuel Saver Program is the easiest way to lower the price at the pump for your next road trip — or just getting wherever you need to go. Every BJ's member can save 10 cents per gallon at BJ's Gas with the purchase of eligible products in-club or online*. You can even stack savings over multiple trips, making your next vacation that much more affordable.

2. Get safely back on the road again with new tires before your next trip

Making sure that your tires are in the best possible condition before hitting the road for a long trip is essential, not just for safety and comfort, but also for improved fuel efficiency. If your car needs new tires, BJ’s Tire Center has got your back. Members can have access to a wide assortment of new tires that are in stock to fit your car’s needs and have you rolling again in no time, thanks to huge savings on top tire brands such as Michelin, Bridgestone, BF Goodrich, Goodyear, Pirelli and more.

Even better, BJ’s provides free maintenance for the life of the tires**, including:

  • Tire rotation
  • Flat repair
  • Tire balancing
  • Inflation check

Don’t head out on the road without making sure your tires are up for the journey.

*For each eligible fuel saver item purchased in-club, save 10¢/gal. at BJ’s Gas® on your next fill-up, within 30 days of your purchase. If you have multiple checkout transactions containing fuel saver items within that 30-day, your fuel discount will reflect all gas savings items purchased in all transactions for that calendar month prior to your next fill-up. Fuel purchases are subject to a required minimum price of 2¢/gal., and you cannot apply your fuel discount to such minimum price. Redemption of the discount is capped at the fuel cost per gallon less 2¢/gal. at the time of redemption (e.g., if fuel cost is $2.00/gal. and you have earned a $2.10/gal. discount, your redemption is capped at $1.98/gal.). Maximum fuel quantity is 30 gallons per redemption or $100. Your earned fuel discount will be reset to zero, and any remaining discount balance will be forfeited, after each use at the pump. Membership card and payment card must be scanned or swiped in order for discounted price per gallon to be reflected on pump dispenser and applied to your fill-up. Promotional savings may not appear at pump for fifteen minutes from checkout. Offer is valid for purchases in club, buy online pick up in club, Same Day Delivery, Express Pay & other BJs.com orders. Offer is not valid on Instacart including purchases at delivery.BJs.com or BJs.com/SameDayDelivery. Offer may be combined with select BJ’s Gas fuel discount offers and, where applicable, 10¢/gal. My BJ’s Perks® Mastercard® discount; however, total discounts may not reduce the price per gal. below 2¢/gal. Unused discounts at the end of that 30-day period will be forfeited, and do not roll over and are not transferable. Discount can be used on any type of fuel — regular, premium and diesel (where available). Approved fuel containers only. BJ’s Gas locations may occasionally close for site maintenance, during which the promotional discounts will not be available. If you redeem your fuel discount, BJ’s has the right to reject the return of the purchased fuel saver items that contributed to the redeemed fuel discount. In addition, in the event BJ’s suspects abuse of the fuel saver program (e.g., returns of purchased gas savings items following redemption of the corresponding fuel discount), BJ’s reserves the right to suspend or terminate your participation in the fuel saver program and to terminate your membership without refund.

**Only valid on tires purchased at and installed by BJ’s.
