BJ's WOW Days savings event gives members exclusive access to deals from July 11-13.

BJ’s Wholesale Club has revealed its biggest savings event of the summer, which is taking place this week, for consumers searching for deals amid record-high inflation. Running July 11-13, the warehouse club’s WOW Days will coincide with big-box retailers' Amazon Prime Day (July 12-13) and Target Deal Days (July 11-13).

Available in-club and online, the three-day event allows BJ’s members to find savings of up to 40% off hundreds of items across the home, consumer electronics, and health and beauty categories.

“BJ’s prides itself on the value it delivers to its members every day, but we want them to be able to stretch their dollar even further, which is the premise behind the WOW Days savings event,” said Rachael Vegas, EVP chief merchandising officer at BJ’s. “In an effort to thank them for their loyalty and support, we want our members to be able to stock up on everything they not only need, but also want, for themselves and their families, but without feeling like they’ve overspent.”
