Value for money — 4.5
We believe that the Bed Bath & Beyond products have a reasonable price/rent ratio. This means that you won’t find overpriced items with low quality.
Website ease of use – 4.5
The overall website design is very nice. It’s simple and convenient; it won’t get you overwhelmed with pop-ups and unnecessary design solutions. However, sometimes, the website can load a bit slow. That’s where their mobile apps will help you.
Product information – 3.5
They do not offer you more than any other retailer — Just regular specifications of the products, sizing, delivery, and shipping information. The warranty information is usually missing, that’s not convenient at all.
Product images – 3.5
Not all of their products have more than 2 pictures. Unfortunately, you can find blenders with only 1-2 image or a bed with just one picture where you won’t be able to see all the details. Most of the pictures are studio made with empty/white background, so it’s a bit hard to imagine how they will look in the average interior. However, they also offer videos, and that’s a big plus.
Product options – 5
Most of their products have more than 5-8 options available. Colors, fabric, etc. They offer an excellent interface where you can locate a product model and then choose what option works best for you. The catalog is rich.
Support – 4.5
They have phone support and emails. They do not state what their hours of operation are, but we believe they work during regular business hours
Bed Bath & Beyond currently cover more than 1,500 locations. You can use their store finder to locate the closest one. Having offline stores is a big plus for every home goods company, it’s very convenient to have a chance to shop both online and offline.
Warranty — 3.5
They have a special section with the information on the product warranty on the product page. However, it’s a common problem that you’ll have to request a copy of the manufacturer’s warranty through their customer service department. We believe it’s quite inconvenient, but it all depends on how much you care about the warranty for your purchase.
Returns & Refunds – 4.5
First of all, they only offer free return shipping to US territories and APO/FPO. The original shipping charges will not be refunded. You’ll be able to return your product within 180 days after your purchase. If you do not have a receipt, they’ll try and find your order in their system, to make that happen, you’ll need to provide something like:
- Credit/Debit Card or Gift Card number
- Order confirmation number
- Account number
If you made a purchase using the Gift Card, you’d get a Merchandise Credit for the paid amount.
As usual, the made to order, custom made, and special products cannot be returned. You should also check their returns page before shopping since they specifically list some of their categories of non-returnable products.
They do not have any specific sections or filters for eco-friendly products. Even though some of their products fall under the eco-friendliness standards, you’ll have to waste some time to find them in the store.
Country of production
Bed Bath & Beyond offers products from different vendors, so it’s hard to determine the country of origin for each product. Not all of the products are made in the US.
Discounts/coupons – 5
They offer numerous of great deals and update them weekly/monthly. You can wait and hunt for the best offers to save big. They also have a special ‘Coupons’ section where you’ll find the top deals of Bed Bath & Beyond.
Payment options — 4
Bed Bath & Beyond only offers you to pay via VISA or MasterCard credit/debit cards. Unfortunately, no PayPal or another additional method of financing your order like Affirm or anything like this.
TOTAL SCORE: 4.25

They ship worldwide and offer their customers to visit a special website for Canada shipments. While placing an international order, we recommend you noticing that they cannot ship internationally an item that requires truck delivery. This is very unfortunate and makes a delivery of many store products impossible.
On the other hand, when we talk about US shipments, it’s really great that they offer delivery to APO/FPO and Puerto Rico.
6Do they offer gift cards?
They offer a very powerful platform for gift card owners. You can order an eGift card and a physical one, design it, add money to the existing card and check the balance online. This is one of the most thought-out gift card systems of all home goods stores.
