The end of the school year means a class of seniors setting their sights on the excitement of college sitting on the other side of summer—new cities, new people, being on their own for the first time—but it also means a whole checklist of things needed to deck out their new living spaces in it dorm, duplex, or apartment. Bed Bath & Beyond is looking to help college-bound kids and their parents with their Back-to-College services, which includes a 20% savings pass, to create a comfortable and personalized home away from home.

Running from the beginning of May all the way to Sep 30, the back-to-college services are designed to help students save money and equip their on or off-campus living as conveniently as possible. Here are the four main perks college students can take advantage of at Bed Bath & Beyond this summer.
The College Savings Pass: Save 20% on all purchases this summer
The exclusive, limited-time pass gives college students 20% off any purchase made in-store or online without any catch. After you sign up, Bed Bath & Beyond will confirm your enrollment, so you need to use the name that appears on your college documents but use a non-.edu email address. It’s possible they’ll need further verification like a college ID card or letter of acceptance.
To use in-store, download the Bed Bath & Beyond app and sign in with the same email used to sign up for the college savings pass; it will be saved in your app under My Offers. Show it to the cashier and you’ll get 20% off your entire purchase. To use online, make sure you are logged into your account and the savings pass will be applied at checkout.
Students can use the College Savings Pass until Sep 30.
Pack & Hold: Buy in one city, pick up in another
Starting in mid-May, students can make purchases online and hold off on picking them up at a store located closer to campus—the perk is known as Pack & Hold. This helps save some space if you’re packing a car-full and having to haul it across the country. Instead of having to shove a few more boxes in your car, the program allows you to have some stuff waiting for you in your new city.
It’s always a pain packing the smaller items, so this is a great way to buy all the little things and pick them up in one shot. If an item is not available for pickup in your new city, it can still be shipped to you. Your items aren’t pulled until your order is placed, and you can schedule your pick-up up to 60 days in advance.
Back to college online shopping checklist
Bed Bath & Beyond is known for being a one-stop shop for campus must-haves and to ensure you won’t forget anything, they’ve created a checklist. It’s broken down into nine categories such as “bedding,” “décor,” “bath,” and a very useful “often forgotten” category.
Each category has a list of six items you generally need for the specific space listed and is a good way to cover all bases while stocking up. Bed Bath & Beyond has several product lines with multiple styles and price points so fulfilling the checklist will be a breeze.
Same day delivery
Delivery is ideal if you don’t have a car on campus to go to the nearest store, and Bed Bath & Beyond takes it a step further by offering same day delivery; eligible products are as small as bathroom caddies and as big as mattress pads and comforter sets. There are cut-off times to place your order and they vary by zip code, but there is no minimum purchase which means it can be something as small as Keurig K-cups for pulling all-nighters.
