Bed Bath & Beyond was once a top destination for engaged couples setting up bridal registries, with every imaginable product in home decor and appliances available. Now the retailer has lost hundreds of its stores and has filed for bankruptcy. Although it has stopped accepting the 20 percent off coupons, two retailers will honor those discounts.

Why are the Bed Bath & Beyond coupons so popular?

Bed Bath & Beyond's coupons gained somewhat of an iconic following over the years. CNN Business reports that the retailer introduced the oversized blue-and-white coupons three decades ago. Customers could get 20 percent off a single item with the coupons, and with plenty of high-priced items at the retailer, which offered significant savings.

Unfortunately, after taking major sales hits due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Bed Bath & Beyond has drastically cut the number of store locations and recently announced its bankruptcy. Stores are winding down operations and April 26 was the final day for customers to get 20 percent off an item.

Big Lots CEO Bruce Thorn said in a press release, "At Big Lots, our mission is to help people live big and save lots, which means we're always thinking of ways to step up and deliver even more value to consumers."

At Big Lots, the discount applies to the person's entire purchase (not just one item) as long as the total purchase is at least $50. You'll need to act quickly, as the Big Lots offer will only last through May 7, 2023. There are some exceptions to the discount: It doesn't apply to shipping charges or to previous price holds.

Some commented on the retailer's tweet asking about whether this would apply even to expired Bed Bath & Beyond coupons, to which they responded "yes." The retailer said, "We will accept any competitor's blue coupon, even the expired ones!"
